Nowadays, it seems as if the stoner stigma has been lifted. As more and more states legalize medical and recreational cannabis use, there has been a simultaneous emergence of weed-fueled creativity—and thus a culinary art scene of sorts has been born. What a time to be alive.
One of the leaders in cannabis cuisine is in Boulder, Colorado: Sweet Mary Jane bakery. Since opening the outlet five years ago, chef Karin Lazarus, who New York Magazine called the "Martha Stewart of weed baking," has been elevating space cakes and pot brownies far past their mere munchie status. Today, Lazarus is releasing Sweet Mary Jane: 75 Delicious Cannabis-Infused High-End Desserts, and which will undoubtedly inspire millennials to become expert bakers.
