Chicago Chef To Make Marijuana-Infused Edibles For Medical Pot Patients

ILLINOIS: A top chef may soon be causing the munchies even as she satisfies them.

Prominent Chicago chef Mindy Segal announced Tuesday she plans to create a line of cannabis-infused edible products for medical marijuana patients.

Segal, the owner of HotChocolate restaurant in Bucktown, has agreed to make a line of products for Cresco Labs, which plans to operate three cultivation centers in Illinois. Cresco maintains Segal is the first James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef to agree to bake for the cannabis industry.
