Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Meet the other Candy Girls

In this week's Westword, Joel Warner reports on the ganjapreneurs, economic adventurers exploring this state's booming business in medical marijuana. Among the folks high on the field's possibilities: the Candy Girls, three women who started a company that cooks up goodies made with cannabis-infused oils or butters.

This medicine may be good for you, but it also tastes good. (The chocolate-covered cherries are the most popular item.)

For a slide show of these Candy Girls (who are not to be confused with the Candy Girls that post on this blog every Thursday), click here.
