With Four Loko about to become a thing of the past, will medical-marijuana soda (imported from Colorado) be the next big thing? Doesn’t seem so: Despite the tagline “Take Flight,” MarQaha was so ineffective that it drove Robert Sietsema to the real stuff: “When the meal concluded, we hopped back in the car and headed for Ferdie’s crib (not his real name), where we knew a big bong with some of his product — home grown in a Brooklyn closet under Gro-Lights, and truly excellent — would be waiting.” [Fork in the Road/VV]
