A marijuana-infused soda was pulled from three Washington state recreational marijuana stores after bottles started began to explode while idle on the store shelves.
“It sounded like a shotgun going off,” Zach Henifin, manager of Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham, told KOMO-TV, Seattle. “You can actually feel it, it was that explosive.”
Henifin’s store received 330 bottles of the Legal brand sparkling pomegranate soda. The brand is a bit special; it’s laced with a marijuana and produced by Mirth Provisions of Longview. The next day the employees were repeatedly startled by the sound of glass bottles exploding.
