WASHINGTON: When Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham took delivery of 330 bottles of a brand new marijuana infused soda on September 28, they were excited to promote it to their customers.
They sold ten bottles of legal sparkling pomegranate soda made by Mirth Provisions of Longview on the first day.
But when employees opened up shop the following day, they found a sticky mess of broken bottles and shards of glass throughout the store. During the night, the bottles began to self destruct. The employees didn’t think anything was dangerous until they heard and saw bottles randomly explode.
“It sounded like a shotgun going off,” said Top Shelf Cannabis manager Zach Henifin. “You can actually feel it, it was that explosive”.
