A man has been on a mission to get the people of New York addicted to marijuana.
Judah Izrael has been in a feel-good mission to spread pot infused sweets with glorious names like White Widow, OG Kush and Blueberry Dream, from South Beach, Florida, to New Orleans, Louisiana.
Now, activist and co-owner of Weed World Candies is touring New York City in search of marijuana lovers.
"Marijuana has had a bad reputation for many years," Izrael, 43, said. "Now is the time to change that," he added.
The man drives a van adorned with marijuana leaves and girls in bikinis. Izrael has distributed lollipops along St. Marks Place, W. 4th St., Times Square and Union Square.
Izrael has also distributed the lollipops outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and in Jamaica, Queens.
"We settle everywhere," Izrael, dressed in Crocs, shorts and a t-shirt, said.
Most people however, ignored Izrael with his lollipops while others were dumbfounded.
"Is this real?" Asked one woman with an open mouth. "How does he not get arrested?" She also asked.
Izrael claims his candies contain only a small but legal amount of marijuana that gets you stoned.
"We are not giving blunts" he said. "We cannot guarantee that everyone will get high,” he added.
