Marijuana Mocha: Las Vegas factory infusing cannabis & coffee



Join Dave & Chela for DC 420, discussing this week’s news & views on cannabis cures, marijuana and the politics of pot in the fastest growing business in California and the US that can still get you locked up.

CBS 8 LAS VEGAS – “Coffee is one of the most consumed drinks in the world. And with your jolt of caffeine, you can also get a little buzz. As marijuana becomes legal in more and more states, the cannabis industry is looking for new ways to cash in.

You can’t find these coffee pods at the grocery store.

Brew Budz makes k-cups filled with coffee, cocoa, and teas infused with cannabis oil out of a factory in Las Vegas.

“People are very ritualistic about their cannabis consumption, they can bring them together in a very discreet easy form to consume cannabis.”

Recreational and medicinal marijuana is now legal in 29 states and the District of Columbia. That’s led to a billion dollar market, including edibles. A variety of companies are now offering cannabis coffee or tea that fits right into your keurig or traditional coffee maker.

In Orange County, California, Gangja Grindz makes cannabis-laced coffee filters, k-cups and cold coffee and tea drinks.

CEO Chris Haze says the business has grown 600 percent in the last year.

“When you put the product into things they are familiar with, you remove the smell, you remove the visual representation of cannabis, it takes a lot of fear out of using a cannabis product.”

“It gives me some focus when I go to sleep. It really helps settle my mind and relax my body.”

But enjoying a cup isn’t cheap.

Brew Budz’s k-cups cost seven dollars a piece.

The federal government still says marijuana is illegal. These products are only available in some states where cannabis is legal.”

And thanks to capitalism, progress in the 20th century will pale in comparison to what’s coming in the 21st. “In 2117,” he says, “we’ll be infinitely better off.”

Forbes sat down with Reason’s Nick Gillespie at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas to discuss the legacy and future of the magazine, his assessment of President Trump, and where the legislative agenda for Republicans is falling short.

Nevada approves opening up marijuana distribution rights



Nevada has approved opening up marijuana distribution rights.

Nevada’s Department of Taxation has decided that there are an inadequate number of liquor distributors interested in transporting marijuana to retail establishments.

The decision came after a hearing on whether the alcohol industry alone is sufficient to distribute pot to points of sale.

The agency will begin processing distribution licenses to marijuana licensees, Deonne Contine said.

The alcohol industry was given the exclusive right for 18 months to distribute recreational marijuana under the ballot measure that legalized sales. But that exclusivity was based on having enough distributors to fill the need.

Marijuana companies in Las Vegas area warned by county



Clark County issued a stern message to Southern Nevada marijuana businesses: Stop advertising stoned yoga, or we’ll yank your license to sell weed.
In a letter sent Monday, Clark County Business Licensing Director Jacqueline Holloway told cannabis companies to stop advertising events that promote public marijuana consumption — including events held at a person’s home.
“We write to remind you that public consumption of marijuana is unlawful,” the letter reads.
“It is unlawful to advertise and invite the public to consume marijuana at parties, dining events, recreational events such as yoga and swimming, and other types of events, even if events are held in a private residence.”
Holloway also noted that any pot business found to be sponsoring or even affiliated with an event or business promoting public consumption “risks the suspension or revocation of their business license.”
County spokesman Erik Pappa said some of businesses were recently listed as sponsors for events that paired yoga and karate with marijuana consumption.
