’12th Pack’ ignites Super Bowl buzz

(KING)  Employees of Seattle medical marijuana producer Solstice working double-time to fill orders of their new “12th Pack” in time for the Super Bowl.

Their goal is 2,000 joints per day.

Katy Filippone is a pre-roll aficionado, but even for her, the joint-rolling speed inside Solstice’s production room is moving fast. She’s rolling about 180-220 joints in an 8-hour shift. That’s double her normal pace.

“It’s not like I go home with cramps or anything,” Filippone laughs.

The 12th Pack sold out within 15 minutes of Solstice releasing their video. So, the medical marijuana supplier decided to light up production.

“We definitely weren’t ready for the speed of it,” said Joe Santucci. “We’ve had to switch everything over. We have stopped trimming. We have stopped packing capsules.”
