A California entrepreneur has plans to market a line medical marijuana soft drinks.

Clay Butler says he plans to supply medical marijuana dispensaries with his soda pot, which contains the psychoactive marijuana ingredient THC, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel newspaper.

Marijuana drinks are already showing up here and there, but Butler says he thinks his branding savvy will make his product a hit.

Besides his flagship cola drink, Canna Cola, he will also produce Dr Pepper-like Doc Weed, lemon-lime Sour Diesel, grape-flavoured Grape Ape and orange-flavoured Orange Kush.

A bottle will cost US$10 to US$15.

The Soquel-based commercial artist tells the newspaper that he doesn't do drugs or need medical marijuana for any ailments.
