Good news, stoners!
Every pothead can relate to what's known as "becoming a bottomless pit" after smoking marijuana. You light up and are feeling calm in the hazy smoke when all of a sudden you are overcome with a relentless hunger that can only be satiated by eating an entire bag of popcorn/Cheetos/chips or finishing a full tub of your favorite ice cream.
It's a gift and a curse — a gift that you can eat enough potato chips to feed your family for a week (which is pretty impressive), and a curse that... you can eat enough potato chips to feed your family for the week. Well, so much for that workout...
But hopefully, that will change soon.
Bethenny Frankel, the creator of the Skinnygirl empire and cast member on the Real Housewives of New York, plans to launch her own line of "Skinnygirl marijuana" in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington where recreational marijuana is legal, according to a source in the newest issue of Us Weekly.
According to the source, "It will be a specially engineered strain of pot designed to not give you the munchies. She read about how profitable the cannabis industry is and wants to get in on that."
Well, we certainly can't blame her for wanting to profit from the marijuana industry. The legal marijuana industry generated $2.4 billion in economic activity in Colorado alone! Sales throughout the United States are projected to reach around $6.7 billion total. That's a lot of dough to get your hands on.
Now, when you think about the Real Housewives, smoking isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind. Though it is nice to enjoy these women attack each other while lighting up in the privacy of your own home. And hopefully, when Frankel finally launches this marijuana line, you can toke up without eating every item in your pantry.
