BELLINGHAM, WA - Bottles of marijuana-infused soda delivered to a Bellingham pot shop started exploding on the store shelf. 

No one got hurt, but the manager of Top Shelf Cannabis, Zach Henifin says it sounded like a shotgun going off. 

Henifin wore a face guard and protective clothing to move more than 300 bottles to a steel trash bin and most had exploded by Tuesday. 

The Legal sparkling pomegranate soda was made by Mirth Provisions of Longview and delivered on September 28th. 

Mirth Provisions founder Adam Stites says there was too much yeast in the soda and fermentation caused excess carbon dioxide to build up.
