Legal Marijuana Problems Arise In CO
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, February, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
When marijuana first became legal in Colorado, we knew that there would be problems that arose. We hoped that they wouldn't but it was pretty inevitable. In the small town of Penrose in southern Colorado, a place with only 3500 residents, they are beginning to see some negative effects of the impactful cannabis industry. Since the town is so small and there are seven approved grow operations in the small town, the other members of the community are worried that the marijuana may be harming their small town.
Apple Farm being the biggest grow operation in the town, with 17 green houses on it, most of which are full of cannabis plants. That's a good amount of plants and the neighbors are beginning to complain of the pungent cannabis smell leaking from the greenhouse walls. A group of concerned citizens has taken it upon themselves to make people aware of the problems that are beginning to occur because of the greenhouses, such as the smell, the use of the lights (which are bright at night according to neighbors), and the use of the small amount of water that the town has. The co-owner of Apple Farm, a man named Edward Vasquez, stated in an 11 New article that "we have been doing everything we can to be good neighbors in terms of odor control, light pollution, and water usage. Some of these things are pretty expensive."
The 17 greenhouses on Apple Farm have been equipped with blackout curtains to prevent light from leaking in to neighboring yards. In addition, there have been new air filters installed to assist in the decreased amount of smell as well as new watering systems designed to conserve. All of these changes were made voluntarily, as the town has no specific ordinances regarding this kind of issue. So in all fairness, at least the greenhouses are putting in a valiant effort to keep their neighbors appeased. The problems in Penrose will eventually be smoothed over and citizens will all be able to leave in peace.
More Than 40 Maine Lawmakers Sign Memo Urging Marijuana Legalization
Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, February, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
On Friday, more than 40 state lawmakers in Maine co-signed a memo authored by State Representative Diane Russell that was delivered to the Appropriations & Financial Affairs Committee. The memo encouraged the committee to keep all options on the table in their upcoming financial deliberations, including potential tax revenue derived from an adult, non-medical market for marijuana.
“All options should be on the table,” Rep. Russell stated in the memo, “In this spirit, we propose committee members give serious consideration to the revenue options associated with legalizing, taxing and regulating cannabis for responsible adult use.”
The memo was signed by prominent elected officials in the state including Majority Leader Troy Jackson (D-Allagash), House Majority Leader Seth Berry (D-Bowdoinham), Minority Whip Alex Willette (R-Mapleton), House Chair of Criminal Justice and Public Safety and former County Sheriff Rep. Mark Dion (D-Portland), and House Health and Human Services Committee Chairman Richard Farnsworth (D-Portland).
In 2013, the Maine House of Representatives fell just four votes short of approving a measure introduced by Rep. Russell which would have placed the issue of marijuana legalization before voters during the fall elections.

Medicated Bloody Mary
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, February, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
The last medicated alcoholic beverage recipe that got put up seemed to do really well with everyone so here's another one. This recipe is for the medicated Bloody Mary, a very popular morning drink for those that enjoy alcohol before the hour of 1 pm. Since everyone likes their Bloody Mary's differently, you can always alter the recipe to make it to your liking. And please remember that ingesting cannabis and alcohol together can sometimes cause negative effects. Be sure that you know how you'll react before drinking too many of these!
What You'll Need;
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 cup finely chopped cucumbers
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped, medium green bell pepper
3 drops tobasco sauce
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 cup tomatoes, undrained
3 drops Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Hash oil
1 cup croutons
2 ounces vodka
1/2 cup medium chopped onion
Dash of Limoncello
Take all of the ingredients and put them in a food processor or blender. Blend them all together on medium until they are all smooth. Then, grab a medium sized pot and put the mixture in it. Stick the pot in the fridge and let it sit in there for about an hour. Once the hour has passed, you're ready to enjoy your cannabis Bloody Mary. You can garnish it with celery, pepper, salt, or anything else that you feel like putting in there (I've seen some very odd things get put on a Bloody Mary drink, even things such as a slice of pizza). Enjoy your drink!
