The Perfect Cannabis Candy
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, December, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
There are a lot of people that think making cannabis candy is a difficult process, when in reality, it's quite simple. As it usually is when making edibles, getting it right is tough. The candy not only has to be potent enough to be considered medicine but taste good as well! The candy is worthless if it doesn't have both of those qualities. But making the perfect batch of cannabis candy treats is in the following recipe!
What You'll Need;
2/3 cups white corn syrup
1 tsp flavoring of your choice (adjust if you want but this is really the perfect amount!)
Food coloring (so they look nice, obviously!)
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
9.5 grams of dry powdered hash
First things first, spray the candy molds with cooking spray so that the mix doesn't stick when you get to the step that requires it. Put the sugar and corn syrup together in a pot and put it on high heat until the mix begins to boil. Reduce the heat to low medium and keep an eye on the temperature. Once the temp hits 300, remove the heat and add in the hash and food coloring. Stir this mix vigorously. You need to make sure that the hash has been completely mixed in. About a minute should do it because the mix will start to harden soon after that. Add your candy mix in to the molds. You can either make them just candies or you can add in sticks to make them lollipops!
Let the mix harden in the mold and then remove and wrap them. This recipe will give you about 40 candies. You can always add in more hash but be sure that that's the form of cannabis that you use. Kief could also be used in this recipe if you have enough of it. These candies last a good amount of time, about 2 to 3 hours on an empty stomach and an hour after a meal. No one should be afraid to make cannabis candy , especially when it's such a benefit to those who are always on the go and enjoy eating their weed rather than smoking it. They're very discreet but don't let anyone sneak one behind your back!
Marijuana Legalization Bill Introduced In New York Senate
Category: News | Posted on Thu, December, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
New York — Today, New York State Senator Liz Krueger introduced a bill to tax and regulate marijuana for adult use. The bill would end the criminalization of adults 18 years and older who possess up to two ounces of marijuana and would create a regulatory system allowing for the retail sale of marijuana to those over the age of 21, much like the current system for regulating alcohol. Recent polls show a majority of Americans now support taxing and regulating marijuana.
New York’s current marijuana policies are widely recognized as broken. Approximately 600,000 people, mostly young Black and Latino men, have been arrested for marijuana possession in NY since 1997, saddling them with criminal records that impede their ability to obtain jobs, student loans, and housing.
“Prohibition of marijuana is a policy that just hasn’t worked, no matter how you look at it, and it’s time to have an honest conversation about what we should do next,” said Sen. Krueger. “The illegal marijuana economy is alive and well, and our unjust laws are branding nonviolent New Yorkers, especially young adults, as criminals, creating a vicious cycle that ruins lives and needlessly wastes taxpayer dollars. Worst of all, this system has resulted in a civil rights disaster: African Americans are dramatically more likely to be arrested for pot possession than whites, despite similar rates of marijuana use among both groups.”
In New York City, marijuana possession is the number one arrest, and NY makes more marijuana arrests than every other state in the country, including California, Florida and Texas. Nearly 97% of all marijuana offenses in New York were for mere possession. The vast majority of those arrested (85%) are Black and Latino, mostly young men, even though numerous government studies report that young white men use marijuana at higher rates.
“As a neuropsychopharmacologist who has spent the past fifteen years studying the neurophysiological, psychological and behavioral effects of marijuana, I can tell you that the claims about the harms associated with marijuana use have been greatly exaggerated in the media,” said Dr. Carl Hart, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University. “Far greater harm results from arresting people for marijuana possession and the racial disparities of those arrests.”

Baby Bree's Story
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
The effectiveness of parenting does not depend on the usage of cannabis. Those of you that have heard of little baby Bree Green know this very well. For those that have been living in the shadows, baby Bree is an 8-month-old that was forcibly removed from her parents care, after authorities deemed the parents not fit to care for their child due to their marijuana use. Michigan law allows caregivers to grow small amounts of plants in their homes and the law also states that unless the person's behavior creates an unreasonable source of danger to the child. The danger has to be seriously apparent and must be proven. In Bree's case, both of her parents are caregivers. Her father suffers from epilepsy and her mother uses cannabis to combat multiple sclerosis symptoms.
This is not the first time that parents have suffered because of their belief in cannabis. Parents of children who are using RSO for cancer treatments have had child services called on them because they do no subject their child to chemo. The people calling claim that the parents are abusing their children. Not only is this a ridiculous claim, but an ass backwards one. Putting a child through chemotherapy can be traumatizing. Ask a cancer survivor who suffered while young. They'll tell you how horrifying it is to lay in a hospital bed, waiting for their heart monitor to flatline. No child should have to do that and those that don't see the attempted effort to help the children are blind.
Baby Bree has thankfully be returned to her parents, after a long and exhausting legal battle with the state. This is a great accomplishment for the cannabis community, even though the child should have never been removed from her home in the first place. There are so many factors in this situation that make Bree's parents amazing people. Parents shouldn't be punished for simply trying to help their kids avoid suffering. Modern medicine is extremely unstable in children most of the time and there can be long lasting effects. And the parents of children should be allowed to be caregivers without the threat of their children being taken. Being punished for trying to help themselves and others? Not okay.
