Media company Vice had rare access to the Aspen, Colo., estate of late gonzo author Hunter S. Thompson for a four-course dinner party with (legal) marijuana-infused dishes from longtime Aspen chef Chris Lanter.
Thompson’s widow Anita Thompson hosted Vice, along with Keith Stroup, founder of advocacy group Norml, and several other marijuana experts for a meal that included dishes, such as Alaskan King crab infused with marijuana.
“Anything you can use an oil with or butter with is a potential candidate to be a marijuana-infused editable,” Lantern says in the video. “In the hands of someone who really knows what they are doing, the possibilities are limitless now.”
The video opens with a classic quote from Thompson, never one to shy away from imbibing in cannabis, psychedelics or other mind-altering substances before his death in 2005:
“I have always loved marijuana. It has been a source of joy and comfort to me for many years. And I still think of it as a basic staple of life, along with beer and ice and grapefruits – and millions of Americans agree with me.”
