As fast as weed-smoked turkey came into Colordans' lives, it has vanished.
As you may have seen on Next, Cook's Fresh Market put weed-smoked turkey sandwiches on the menu this week.
Owner Ed Janos said he had no idea if his Mile High club sandwiches were legal, but he made the turkey because he wanted to know how it tastes. (We don't recommend using Next to float your possibly illegal ideas by, for what it's worth.)
As it turns out, selling marijuana-infused turkey sandwiches at your deli is most definitely, absolutely, 100 percent not allowed, even in Colorado.
A few people from Denver Environmental Health happened to be watching the story as it aired on TV, so inspectors went to check out the situation on Friday morning.
"We consider it a concern for cross-contamination, and also, it's an illegal practice. A facility that's going to make or sell anything with marijuana in it has to have a license to sell those products to consumers," said Director of Public Health Inspections Danica Lee.
Kerra Jones, with the environmental health department, said the owner still had 8 to 10 pounds of turkey left in the freezer when the inspectors were there. Janos had to pour bleach on the meat to ensure it was destroyed.
Jones wasn't sure yet if the restaurant had been ticketed, or if they would be penalized in any way in the future.
