Ben & Jerry's reputation as a quirky ice cream company is no secret, and every one of their flavors is far from normal.

In a HuffPost Live interview Wednesday, founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield hinted that they'd be open to a higher level of experimentation in the future — specifically, they would consider making a cannabis-infused ice cream should legal hurdles be removed.
 
"Makes sense to me," Cohen told host Alyona Minkovski matter-of-factly. "Combine your pleasures."
 
Greenfield seemed a little more hesitant, but he didn't rule it out.
 
"Ben and I have had previous experiences with substances, and I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing," he said. "It's not my decision. If it were my decision, I'd be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company that figure those things out."
