An ice cream store in Italy, announced that it began selling ice cream that contain cannabis in honor of a music star who loved to smoke marijuana.
The store in Alassio, claims that the ice cream has many health benefits.
A spokesperson for the store said that the cool treats can help fight arthritis, eczema and respiratory disorders.
However, the ice cream will not cause the consumer to get high as it does not contain the same mood altering chemicals as marijuana.
The ice cream has been developed as a tribute to Bob Marley, a reggae star who was often seen smoking marijuana.
Canapa Ligure, a non governmental agency that promotes the beneficial effects of hemp or cannabis, said that the ice cream tastes good and is good for your health.
