"Remember melatonin? In the 1990s, this over-the-counter dietary supplement was all the rage among frequent fliers, promoted as the miracle cure for jet lag. Now it is back in vogue, this time as a prominent ingredient in at least a half-dozen baked goods that flagrantly mimic the soothing effects of hash brownies — and do so legally. At least for now. With names like Lazy Cakes, Kush Cakes, and Lulla Pies, these products are sold online and at stores such as 7-Eleven, Walgreens, smoke shops, and even at the Harvard Coop, the university’s student bookstore, for roughly $3 to $4 each."
