Cannabis Catering: Yuppie Food Laced With Marijuana
Medical marijuana enables a novel business idea: Cannabis Catering, a yuppie stoner catering service, delivers gourmet meals laced with pot to your doorstep. Delivery costs around $100 per person (and of course, medical marijuana card is required).

"The idea for Cannabis Catering came to Chef Frederick Nesbitt when he learned that his friend's diabetic mother had been diagnosed with cancer. 'I would bring back edibles from the dispensary, but they're so high in high-fructose corn syrup that she was high off sugar rather than being medicated,' he says. So Nesbitt began experimenting with his own pot food--starting with mashed potatoes.
Now Nesbitt cooks an array of cannabis-laced delectables. A sample menu might include salad, lobster bisque, whiskey tri-tip with a demi-glazed sauce (containing marijuana tincture or ground-up hashish), and an infused Belgian chocolate fountain.
Each meal contains the equivalent of three to five pot cookies, but Nesbitt says he can customize the food depending on what customers want. 'When you're eating a cookie, you're eating as much as you can in one portion. I'm spreading it out through a whole meal,' he says. "The last thing I need is people freaking out on me.'"
