Marijuana for Dessert? Weed Ice Cream Sparks Conversation in Vermont

Recent comments from the founders of the ice cream brand Ben & Jerry's about legalized marijuana are sparking discussion in Vermont, a state where lawmakers in both chambers of the state legislature have introduced recreational marijuana legalization bills.

In a video interview with the Huffington Post, after a viewer suggested a flavor containing marijuana for states where it is legal, Ben & Jerry's co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield signaled support for the idea.

"If it were my decision, I'd be doing it," Cohen said in the Huffington Post conversation, referring to manufacturing ice cream for the edible marijuana market.

Vermont could be first state to legalize marijuana via legislation

A bill introduced on Tuesday in Vermont could end the prohibition of marijuana by legalizing its possession, use and sale in the state for people aged 21 and over. It would be the first in America to do so by law rather than through the ballot box.

Under Senate Bill 950, adult residents could possess up to one ounce of marijuana and grow up to nine plants (two mature, seven immature) for personal use. Cultivation would be limited to secure indoor facilities; there would be no smoking in public and non-residents could purchase up to one-quarter of an ounce from a licensed retail shop.
