The marijuana soda comes in “12 Mind Blowing Ounces” and is expected to cost $10 to $12 but will vary based on the price of supply at dispensaries.

The drink will feature five flavors: Canna Cola, the Dr. Pepper styled Doc Weed, Orange Kush, Grape Ape and Sour Diesel. The company decided to pick classic soda types shunning atypical drinks like Lychee flavors because they provided a full spectrum of flavors.

    It’s a nice thought, but I hope Butler tested it on people who *do* like marijuana and soda.
