Neat idea, Canna Bumps: Thanks for keeping marijuana illegal

The Haymaker is Leafly Senior Editor Bruce Barcott’s opinion column about cannabis politics and culture.
A new cannabis product made waves this past week, and not in a good way. Canna Bumps, a “snortable” powdered cannabis concentrate packaged to look like cocaine, caught the eye of a few industry leaders.
They tweeted their reactions—pretty much a chorus of So gross!—and by the weekend, Weed Twitter was piling on.
Can someone plz write about this snortable cannabis that is being sold in California.
Like what the fuck.
It even comes with a mini spoon for easy snorting. and a card to break it up. This is gross and not what I want to see in the cannabis industry! pic.twitter.com/4gx9cah3zB

Subreddit r/weed picked up the powdery product and continued the conversation. The reaction was mixed. A few defended the product:
Some people love snorting stuff and this is a cool idea to get an instant high without carrying a cartridge pen (which runs the risk of a felony and this stuff is easy to dispose of). If it was economical Id buy the shit out of it!
But most reactions went into the “So fucking dumb. Holy shit” bucket.
