MAINE: Every morning, Katie Marsh starts her day with a green smoothie— infused with cannabis.
Marsh, of Madawaska, Maine, blends up yogurt, fruit and thawed, juiced cannabis.
“To drink it straight is kind of bitter, but it’s not at all objectionable in a smoothie,” she said.
Marsh’s unusual recipe stems from being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, three years ago. The autoimmune disease causes painful swelling in the hands and feet. She was prescribed prednisone and a low-dose antibiotic. The latter only made her symptoms worse.
