Would you drink a cannabis-infused soda?

More and more companies are tapping into this market. Friday, a company is launching its first marijuana infused drinks in Las Vegas.

The product launch for Keef Brands marijuana-infused sodas coincides with Life Is Beautiful because their target market are those who go to these types of festivals. They're not legally allowed to sell it there though. It can only be sold at dispensaries.

13 Action News went around and asked concertgoers what are their thoughts on the growing popularity of pot-infused products.

Nina Porciuncula: Would you try it though?
Yamilett Perez: Yes, I would definitely try it.

Jeffrey Villavicencio: For me personally, I think it's a ridiculous idea.

Since recreational pot was legalized, Las Vegas has been on the cutting edge of cannabis products.

Friday is no different.

Starting this weekend, Keef Brands marijuana infused beverages will be available in select dispensaries.

Diego Valenzuela: It  might be a good thing but, I guess people have to try it and find out.

Unlike edibles where it takes over an hour to feel high, these drinks take about 10 to 15 minutes before you experience its full effect.

Just a few weeks ago, we told you about a cannabis-infused beer.

Las Vegas ReLeaf Dispensary is the first one in the world to produce a drink like it.

Yamilett Perez: That's really cool for everyone. I feel like, alright, they're making money off of it. People are being satisfied with it. It's just another product going out there.

Jeffrey Villavicencio: I think they should just strictly stick to plants because you're trying to force a product on people.
