Pot-Infused Jerky To Be Made At Aspen Facility

Pitkin County's first facility approved to produce pot edibles will make marijuana-infused buffalo jerky.

The Aspen Times reports commissioners granted a one-year license to High Mountain Taxi Owner Todd Gardner, who plans to make Cannabis Queen Jerky from dried buffalo meat infused with cannabis oil.

Each piece of jerky will carry a THC brand stamp, one of the recommendations voiced during an April meeting.

Gardner had asked for a continuance during the meeting to address concerns.

The license can be pulled if complaints arise and may not be renewed after a year. A marijuana safety group will make a recommendation on a possible county-wide ban.

Officials said they appreciated that the facility would not produce the pot-infused candy, popcorn or gum featured in an application they denied in March.
