Will Legal Marijuana Look Like This?

Print magazine solicited a number of professional design firms to put together potential packaging for legal marijuana. It resulted in a very interesting collection.
The statistics website FiveThirtyEight estimates that if public support continues to grow at its current pace, legalization could happen within 15 years.

With this in mind, Print contacted four firms: Lust, a graphic design practice in Amsterdam established by Thomas Castro, Jeroen Barendse, and Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen; the New York office of Base, which worked with its branches in Europe; the Oslo firm Strømme Throndsen, winner of the 2009 Award for Design Excellence for its flour packaging; and The Heads of State, a two-man operation run by Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers in Philadelphia.

The brief was simple: What would a legal pack of marijuana cigarettes look like?
Check out the Print site for more pics of the designs.
