Cannabis lovers are stepping up their game. Chris Sayegh, a 23-year-old chef, believes the world is ready to move on from pot cookies, and is experimenting with ways to infuse his 5-star meals with weed, as you can see in the video above. While this might not be a completely novel idea in states where recreational marijuana is already legalized, it’s way ahead of the curve in Chris’ home state, California.

California was the first state to have legalized medical marijuana and a widely supported, well-funded marijuana legalization initiative to legalize recreational use too is aiming to go to voters this November.

 

If it becomes law, Chris will be ready with his cannabis cuisine.
