I like to tinker with packaging design from time to time, usually under highly hypothetical, wholly improbably, and wildly inappropriate premises.
For example, there was the notorious “what if Lifesavers made condoms” experiment of ’09. Today, I give you the hastily sketched out “what if pot were legal and sold in retail outlets?” designs. To be honest and fair, this is all Eston‘s fault for posting the question in the first place during a conversation in which I speculated that Philip Morris et al. probably had packaging designs & marketing campaigns all lined up for the day that pot is legalized.
And for the record: Yes, I do firmly believe marijuana should be legalized for medical and personal use. I think that its cultivation and sale should be moved off the black market and should be regulated and taxed. Finally, no, I don’t use marijuana myself – but I certainly did in college and was generally no worse for the wear and, in fact, much better off than I was when drinking or using other substances.
