Illinois residents with medical marijuana cards will soon be able to buy some delicious treats. The James Beard award-winning chef of Mindy's HotChocolate is developing a line of marijuana edible products that will be available at licensed dispensaries across the state. Mindy Segal is partnering with Cresco Labs, the largest cannabis cultivator in Illinois, to produce the products. They're planning for distribution to begin in late February 2016.

Products offered will include a line of chocolate brittle bars, infused granola bites and, of course, a ready-made mix to make your own steaming "infused chocolate drink." If that sounds delicious to you (we're certainly intrigued), that's kind of the point. "We've all heard the expression 'it tastes like medicine' but there's no reason it has to," Segal said in a press release. "We're developing this line of products to be consistent every time and absolutely enjoyable to eat."
