A new product is taking the old idiom, Money To Burn, to a higher level.
Shine Papers are 24K rolling papers combining edible gold leaf with a slow-burning interior paper. Prices range from $55 to $60 for a pack of 12, depending upon whether they are purchased directly from the U.S.-based company or on Amazon.com, ABC News reports.
"It's definitely not an everyday product because of the price point," Shine Papers owner Dave D., who declined to provide his last name, told abcnews.com. "But the people who feel like they are that person are showing a lot of support for it and returning to reorder."
Judging by the company's Twitter account, Shine seems to be encouraging folks to use its papers for other uses.
"Roll up on a party with 24K gold joints!" its profile reads.
"Toking at its finest," reads another post. And one user said: "Everybody n their mommas gonna be smoking gold joints and blunts now. Super dope wraps."
Dave D. told ABC News that he conceived of the idea for Shine Papers at the end of March with a friend at London Cut Cigars, which sells a $200 Dominican cigar wrapped in Connecticut Shade paper and 24K edible gold leaf.
He estimated that he has sold to 20 different countries, with the majority of sales being conducted directly through the site.
