Despite the fact that Washington, D.C. has taken the positive step of legalizing the free exchange of an ounce or less of cannabis, marijuana sales are still illegal in the district.
But some entrepreneurs are finding ways around the law in a novel way. Companies like HighSpeed, which says it has about 300 customers in D.C., say what their company does is not illegal because consumers are not buying marijuana – they are buying juice.
On HighSpeed’s website, customers are able to pick a flavor of juice to be delivered. They can opt for their juice to come with “love,” “lots of love,” or “just juice.” Love equals about an eighth of an ounce of marijuana and lots of love is slightly larger than an eighth. Ironically, “just juice” is a randomly selected amount of marijuana that comes out to be around a gram.
According to HighSpeed spokeswoman, Rachel Bor, the company has run its plan by lawyers and will be continuing its operation.
We have no doubt that more lawyers, prosecutors, police and politicians will soon get involved in an attempt to prevent HighSpeed from providing a product that many people wish to purchase. In the meantime, however, the juice costs anywhere from $11 to $150 depending on the amount of “love” preferred.
A HighSpeed company representative did, however, promise that the cold-pressed juice itself is “really, really good.”
