Can marijuana make the world a better place? Araminta Scott and Ariel Oxner say it can.
The duo have created Space Cakes DC, a weed-laced pastry business they say is a nonprofit organization. Through home deliveries and pop-up stands, Scott and Oxner have brought cannabis-infused brownies, cupcakes and cookies to the masses in the District.
The main ingredient in their edibles is a butter-weed mixture called, “cannabutter,” Oxner said. A friend, who taught himself how to grow marijuana, gives them the pot for free to make the special sauce, Scott added.
“We want to show people that there’s other ways to get high than just smoking,” Oxner said.
The nonprofit’s donors can place their orders three days in advance via email and choose to have their edibles delivered to them or have their treats available at Space Cakes DC’s pop-up locations, Scott said. Customers
