TULSA, Okla. – Legal cannabis consumers in Oklahoma currently have access to an interesting product: pot slushies.
Currently, visitors to Fighting Flower Dispensary can buy a THC-infused slushie for $15. It contains a pre-measured amount of THC in each portion, and is served in a childproof cup.
Shop owner Todd Hunter said he bought the machine from a licensed company called Glazee, and so far it’s been popular with adult customers.
Each state can include or exclude certain items when designing their cannabis marketplaces. For instance, some states allow gummy products while other states restrict these to avoid possible confusion with candy that children may accidentally ingest.
So far, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority hasn’t stopped sales. It did issue a memo saying that it was uncertain a slushie would meet all required safety requirements, but Hunter said the shop has taken a lot of steps to be compliant, including making the package difficult for children to open and not allowing on-site consumption. Regulators were concerned, however, that slushies technically could be classified as food, which would need approval from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, which so far has not offered any opinion.
