Dreams Do Come True: Cannabis Ice Cream Is A Thing That Exists

Marijuana enthusiasts the world over rejoiced when Ben and Jerry's co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield went on HuffPo Live and casually dropped a tasty bombshell: they're totally on board with the idea of making cannabis-infused ice cream - provided it's legal, of course.

"Ben and I have had previous experiences with substances, and I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing," Greenfield told host Alyona Minkovski . "It's not my decision. If it were my decision, I'd be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company that figure those things out."

Medical marijuana patients in Oregon don't have to wait, salivating, until Ben and Jerry's sorts out the logistics. The prospect of simultaneously triggering, and satisfying the munchies in a perpetual, delicious munchie-loop, is here, and it's a fantastic time to be alive: the folks over at Drip Ice Cream have already created infused ice-cream flavours ranging from Pumpkin Spice and Salted Caramel, to Coconut Lemon Zest (vegan!) , Cookies & Cream, and Honey Lavender. (No word on whether they're working on a Heavenly Hash variety.)

The punchy dessert comes in both regular, and extra-strength iterations. Neither is anything to be trifled with: they've created this adorable cartoon infographic to make sure everybody has a good time.

To dig in, you might have to hit the road: Drip is only available in Oregon to OMMP members. If you qualify, check out their store locator, grab a spoon, and prepare to get seriously chilled.
