    Swim read this in a newspaper today (Daily Mirror - UK)
    Iced Cannabis tea is going on sale - marketed for its health benefits. Narcotic elements are removed to make C-Ice Swiss Cannabis Ice Tea legal. The chilled black tea, on sale at health food shops under the slogan "fantastic natural feeling", is said to have "added hemp blossom syrup with an extract of hemp bloom". National Drug Provention Alliance said: "This is normalisation of Cannabis in young peoples minds".

    He also found this article about it from http://www.physorg.com/news70549880.html
    Sold under the label "C-Ice Swiss Cannabis Ice Tea", the beverage contains five percent of hemp flower syrup and a tiny (0.0015 percent) quantity of THC, the active ingredient of marijuana.

    Any ingredient that could put it in the drugs category has been removed and the tea will not lead to dependency.

    But British anti-drug campaigners say that selling the tea is dangerous because it will give young people the impression that cannabis is commonplace.

    The product was launched in Switzerland in 2003 and is already available in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.

    I'll look that up next time i'm in germany, sounds pretty cool. Cannabis already is normal though. I'll bet you 10 000 dollars that theres more people that smoke pot than theres people who will actually drink this crap.
