The latest great food trend coming out of Los Angeles are pizza pies that get you high. According to LA Weekly, 24-year-old Henry Mark is now selling between 2,000 to 3,000 THC-laced personal pizzas a week. His company Stoned Oven Gourmet Pizza sells the six-inch frozen pies to a "handful of dispensaries" in town for $10 each (weekly take-in: $20-$30K). Like the company's moniker, the pizzas also have predictably punny names like "OG Pepperoni" and "Very Margarita Jane."
Even though each pie contains 250 milligrams of "ethanol-extracted" THC the weed flavor is barely there: Mark says, "You cannot taste one bit of marijuana in there. This pizza is really dangerous, because you can trick anyone!" Mark has big plans for his high pie company and is currently in the midst of developing wholesale plans, "a franchise book," new packaging, and a new line of pizzas made with a different strain of weed. While Mark has found success selling entire pies laced with ganja, a company based out of Philadelphia is trying their luck with cannabis-laced pizza sauce for your inner weed chef.
