America’s favorite hippie dairymen have heard the people’s cry for cannabis-infused ice cream, and they’re not ruling it out.
Vermont-based co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield appeared on HuffPost Live last week to chat about the company, which they remain involved in more as figureheads than decision-makers these days. When asked if they would consider releasing weed ice cream where it is legal, Cohen immediately jumped on board.
“Makes sense to me,” he said mid-bite. “Combine your pleasures.”
Greenfield, clearly the more cautious of the two, wearing a polo instead of a “Stamp Money Out of Politics” t-shirt, gave a more measured response. He explained that he and Cohen had “previous experiences with substances,” and continued, “I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing, rather than putting people in jail.”
“If it’s my decision, I’d be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company,” he concluded after a little pushback from Cohen.
While the two aren’t involved enough in the company to make those calls, the Ben & Jerry brand certainly appears 420-friendly – look no further than the nearest pint of Half Baked for confirmation. If you’re in Colorado and own every season of Adventure Time on DVD, looks like your dreams just might be coming true if Ben and Jerry have their way.
