The ice cream moguls behind Ben & Jerry’s said they would consider creating a cannabis-infused ice cream in line with the rest of their quirky flavors. When it becomes legal, of course.

In an interview with HuffPost Live, a commenter wrote to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, suggesting the new flavor.

“Ben and Jerry should totally do a cannabis edibles flavor… available wherever legal (of course),” wrote commenter Jeremy Simpson.

“Makes sense to me,” said Cohen in response. “Combine your pleasures.”

Greenfield seemed a bit more reluctant to hop on board with selling a psychoactive drug in their ice cream, though ultimately agreed with Cohen.

“Ben and I have had previous experiences with substances, and I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing,” he said. “It’s not my decision. If it were my decision, I’d be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company that figure those things out.”
