WASHINGTON: The temptation to infuse the food-truck fad with marijuana apparently was too great to pass up.
And so, if things go as planned, expect to see an entrepreneur pull into a south Everett farmers market this weekend to hawk cannabis-laced snacks from a converted school bus.
The hot-pink rolling restaurant, dubbed the Samich Truck, isn’t intended to comply with Washington’s rules for legal pot sales — and won’t. The state isn’t even scheduled to start issuing licenses for voter-approved retail pot sales until July 7.
The food truck’s backers want to sell THC-fortified sandwiches, popcorn and other treats to people with a doctor’s permission to use pot. It’s a gambit to promote a botanical extractor made by a Seattle-based MagicalButter.com.
