Wyoming police officials divided on effects of Colorado's marijuana legalization

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell knows people in his community buy marijuana from Colorado.

“When we ask where it came from, without exception, it’s Colorado,” Lowell said. “I assume they’re going across the border, purchasing and coming back.”

But those purchases in Colorado, where marijuana was legalized last year, haven’t translated into an increase in prosecutions for possessing the drug. In fact, marijuana charges in Sweetwater County dropped 18 percent from 2013 to 2014.

Overall, the county has maintained an average of 36 marijuana charges each year for the past three years.

“The change in drug arrests has been nonexistent,” Lowell said.

Law enforcement officials are divided on whether Wyomingites are consuming more marijuana since Colorado decriminalized the drug. Statistics aren’t helpful either.

According to figures released last month by the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, nearly 8 percent of arrests in Wyoming last year involved marijuana. But there’s no baseline for comparison because the organization just started collecting data concerning marijuana last year.

Carbon County, Niobrara County and Sweetwater County, in that order, had the highest percentages of marijuana-related arrests last year, according to WASCOP’s data.

“We’ve always got somebody in jail for possession of marijuana, it seems like,” said Carbon County Sheriff Jerry Colson. “Whether it’s always coming from Colorado, I’m not sure. More than it used to be for sure.”

That One Time Alex Trebek Got High For Multiple Days From Hash Brownies…

I am a very big fan of the show Jeopardy!, which of course is hosted by Alex Trebek. My great grandparents got me hooked on the show a long time ago when I was just a little kid. I think we have all seen the show at one time or another, and tried to show how smart we were by seeing if we could get the answers right. My great grandparents were very much products of their generation, and did not support sensible marijuana laws. So I was quite pleased when I saw that Alex Trebek admitted to using marijuana, and from what it sounds like, had quite the experience. Per High Times:

Alex Trebek went on Howard Stern’s radio show for the first time ever this week and ended up discussing his few dalliances with drugs.

The Jeopardy! host explained that he had tried smoking marijuana to help with arthritis in his shoulder, but it didn’t work for him, so he quit. He also admitted to trying cocaine once with his accountant.

But the best story he told involved accidentally eating some hash brownies.

“I went to this party at a home in Malibu and I didn’t know the people who were hosting the party and they had hash brownies,” Trebek said. ”I love chocolate, and I ate four or five hash brownies. The party was on a Friday night… I didn’t leave their home until Monday morning.”

From what it sounds like, Alex did not have the best experience. With that being said, his story highlights two things. Number one, no one should go from zero to hero when it comes to marijuana, especially with edibles. Consume responsibly, and know your limit, as with anything else. The second thing is that Mr. Trebek is yet another example of someone who has consumed marijuana that a lot of people wouldn’t have expected. I’d be very curious to hear what my great grandparents would have to say if they were here. Even if Alex didn’t have the best experience, he was ultimately fine, which is something that I don’t think he could say had he binged on some other legal substances that are generally accepted culturally in America.

Get high every morning with marijuana K-cups

Category: News | Posted on Sun, May, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

As more and more states legalize marijuana for recreational use, edibles and infusions are becoming a massive marketplaceYahoo Finance now reports that coffee businesses are now infusing cannabis in their brews, ready to be bought in K-cups and coffee pods.

Uncle Ike's Pot Shop of Seattle sells pods of "premium infused" coffee, containing 10mg of THC, for $10 each. "I liken it to a Red Bull and vodka," Uncle Ike’s sales manager Jennifer Lanzador told Yahoo. "I had more energy, but I still had the relaxation you get from cannabis." The pods are becoming big sellers — probably because of their undeniable convenience — and now reportedly account for 60 percent of Uncle Ike's coffee sales.

Uncle Ike's isn't alone. Companies like California's House of Jane already sells four versions of its own pot-infused K-cups, and found Ben-David Sheppard tells Yahoo that he's planning to launch an infused vanilla bean Frappuccino in time for summer. Now, the best part of waking up... is cannabis in your cup.
