Some weeks ago, Slate declared food trucks awesome and pitched ideas for other things that should be made into trucks.

That list didn’t include a truck that dispenses food infused with weed, but MagicalButter, a company that pulls nutrients from plants and puts them into butter and cooking oils, has created one anyway.

According to a press release, the Samich Truck—otherwise known as simply the Food Truck—will offer its customers “four-star-quality food items infused with 30 to 100 mg of THC” in states where marijuana has been legalized. Items on the menu include Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches and tomato soup—all made lovingly with weed.

It debuted in Denver on April 20, a pothead’s favorite holiday. Creator Garyn Angel, the CEO of MagicalButter, said the launch was a major success.

“It was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life,” Angel told Newsweek. “We bought the truck on April 1, and on April 20 it went from Seattle to Denver and was ready for an opening.”

Angel said he’s still searching for a municipality where he can file the right paperwork to register the truck. He also has plans for a smartphone app to notify people when the 40-foot Freightliner truck is nearby and, maybe someday, a chain of restaurants.

Angel said he’s pretty sure the truck is the first of its kind. A van in New York last summer purported to be selling weed-infused lollipops—but that turned out to be a fraudulent claim.

“Our truck is not a hoax,” Angel promised. “We want to educate people about ingesting cannabis. For a lot of people, it’s a great way to balance your body. It helps with a lot of ailments.”
