Blue Moon brewer to release a marijuana-infused 'beer'


DENVER, Co. (WSET) -- The inventor of Blue Moon is launching a non-alcoholic beer that still promises intoxication.

Keith Villa, Blue Moon's brewer, told ABC Denver 7 that the brewing company will be releasing three marijuana-infused drinks that will promise intoxication without the alcoholic headache that comes afterward.

The drinks are set to debut this fall and will only be available in Colorado for now.

Villa did say that he plans to make them available in states that have legalized recreational marijuana eventually.

Marijuana use is still illegal at the federal level.

Villa said the drinks will not contain alcohol, but will instead be infused with special marijuana formulas, designed to mimic the effects of drinking alcohol.
