(CNN/CBC) - A pizzeria in Vancouver has a topping you can only get with a prescription, but it may not be on the menu for long.  The topping that's raising some red flags is marijuana.

The pizzeria, Mega Ill, bakes the controversial pizza.  For an extra ten dollars, they infuse the food with THC, which is a main ingredient in the cannabis plant.

The people who run Mega Ill say they only serve up slices to people who are over the age of 18 and have a prescription for medical marijuana.

"Basically, we infuse it through an oil-extraction process. We drizzle the oil onto the pizza and it medicates you when you eat it. It's a little different from smoking it. It takes about a half hour for it to activate," says Anthony Risling, Mega Ill.

"It has a little bit of a tangy flavor, but it's not much different. You can't really taste it on the pizza," Ryan Holden, customer.

New regulations that go into effect on April 1st could force the pizzeria to stop making pies with marijuana.

Final approval is currently in legal limbo, but if the outcome of the case does ban marijuana-infused pizza, the owner of Mega Ill plans to take it off the menu to keep the business open.
