ROCKTON (WREX) — You've probably heard of cooking with wine and beer, but one man in the state-line has a book teaching people how to cook with marijuana.

Rockton man Larry Gerber released a cook book last year titled "BarBeQue Man™ Smokes with Mary Jane.... And You Can Too!" The book has over 125 marijuana-based recipes.

Gerber says cooking with marijuana gives a different effect than smoking it.

"When you cook with weed, you get 100% effectiveness," Gerber said. "Whereas if I'm smoking a joint or a bowl or doing a hit, all of that smoke is going into the air."

The book is available online.
