One Arizona chef is turning his love of cooking, his appreciation for the effects of medicinal marijuana and the demand for edible pot products into a new money-making venture.

Payton Curry, a chef at the Brat Haus in Scottsdale, Arizona is teaching classes on cooking with pot, according to CBS Las Vegas. Medicinal marijuana has been legal in Arizona since 2010, and Mr. Curry legally uses the drug under state law to treat anxiety and depression. 

Mr. Curry told CBS Las Vegas that he’s not concerned the marijuana cooking classes will have any impact on his business, and that he’s only interested in the medicinal properties of the drug. Included in the class are instructions on how much marijuana extract to use in a recipe based on the preparer’s weight, height and metabolism. 

“I don’t want to get stoned out of my mind and eat Cheetos with peanut butter and listen to the Grateful Dead,” Mr. Curry said.
