In an interview with the HuffPost Live, Co-founder Ben Cohen said making a cannabis flavored ice cream "makes sense to me."

The Vermont-based ice cream kings Cohen and Jerry Greenfield said they are open to making a marijuana ice cream in state's where the herb is legal.

Currently, Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska have passed laws making weed legal for medicinal and recreational use.
