One Washington-based company has invited the "prohibition" comparison that pot legalization proponents like to draw and created "Legal," an aptly-named marijuana-infused bottled beverage.

Two months after the smokable and edible forms of marijuana became legal in the state, weed is now available in drinkable form at eight of the 22 recreational marijuana stores in Washington. Legal comes in five different flavors. While all the flavors carry 22 milligrams of THC—"enough to know that you're high, but not so much as to overwhelm," founder Adam Stites said—each flavor's high will hit you in a different way.

The cold brew with milk and sugar says it provides “an uplifting, euphoric head high and a gentle body buzz," while sparkling lemon ginger flavor will provide a completely different experience. "Couch, meet butt," the product description says. "This delicious fusion of tangy lemon and spicy ginger is so ridiculously relaxing that you may find yourself becoming one with your furniture. Whether you’re melting into a beach blanket or parked on the sofa, prepare for many glorious hours of doing absolutely nothing."

Stites says the product should be more familiar and less "taboo" feeling than smoking the drug. "It’s much more approachable, as opposed to ‘Hey, mom and dad, do you want a joint?'” he said. “It's an opportunity to make an amazing, unique, unusual, and delicious product while also making history. I think my grand-kids will be amazed to know that people used to go to jail for having a plant.”

The drink hit store shelves in July.
