The Employment Problem

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, March, 4th 2014 by THCFinder
job-issuesAs cannabis acceptance spreads, more issues are beginning to present themselves. One that has been apparent for a while but is just now being fully acknowledged is the employers and their pain in the ass drug testing. Stoners everywhere know the difficulty of trying to pass a pre-employment drug test and there are other jobs that randomly screen employees throughout their career to make sure that no drugs are being ingested. But since Colorado allows legal pot, does that change anything for tourists?
 
Unfortunately, no. The laws aren't exactly moving quickly and if you fly to CO to get stoned and you have a job that tests for cannabis, it's a smart idea to refrain from smoking the reefer. Even though the laws in Colorado let you smoke, you might run in to a surprise test when you get home. Since marijuana can stay in a person's system for as long as three months, people can suffer the consequences long after they smoked and even though they are able to do their job.
 
Since cannabis is now legal in Washington, Colorado, and Portland, Maine, pot tourists are traveling from all over the states to sample a bit of the legal cannabis trade. There should be no reason that someone's weekend trip should cost them their job when they return home, even weeks after they've come back. If employers want to keep their businesses afloat, it would be a good idea for them to completely remove THC from the list of drugs that would prevent a person from getting or keeping their job.
 
Employers will eventually adapt their policies to accept marijuana use. If approval of the plant continues to spread and legalization, there will be a lot of people that will be smoking and I believe that there will be no choice but to allow employees to consume THC. As of right now, even medical patients from California can be fired for failing a drug test so hopefully, these policies are revised soon. It's not fair for a tourist to lose their jobs just because they wanted to have a good time. Do jobs fire people for alcohol consumption on the weekends? No.

Pecan Pot Snacks

Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, March, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder

These snacks are super simple to make, making them a great choice for the beginning marijuana chef. They're quick too, which makes them a good choice for those who want a pot snack in a hurry. What's even better is that these snacks can also be saved and munched on for later. Trust me, with a recipe as simple as this one, there's no way you won't enjoy these pecan pot snacks!
 
What You'll Need;
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces light cream cheese
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons of cannabutter, softened
1 tablespoon of melted cannabutter
2/3 cup chopped pecans
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 large egg
 
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Take a 24 cup mini muffin pan and grease it well. Soften the butter and the cream cheese and add them to a large mixing bowl, churning them together by hand until they are smooth (you can use an electric mixer if you don't want to do it by hand). Pour in the flour and the powdered sugar a little bit at a time, being sure to blend in the small amounts before adding more. When everything is blended smoothly, add in 1/8 teaspoon of salt to the dough mix and work it with your hands to form a smooth ball.
 
Use some flour to cove a flat work surface and use a floured rolling pin to roll the dough out in to a circle, like a pizza. It should be about 1/8th of an inch thick. Using a knife, cut the dough in to 24 squares. Take the trimmings from the edges and set them aside for later. Turn each square in to a small ball and then flatten it back in to a circular flat disc. Flatten these small dough discs in to the muffin cups. If you don't have enough squares, take some of the dough from your leftover trimmings and use that. Put the tray in the fridge.
 
Take the egg, melted cannabutter, remaining salt, brown sugar, chocolate, and vanilla and mix them together in a bowl until they're well combined. Take half of the pecan pieces that you have and toss them in the muffin cups. Then, pour the sugar mixture over the pecans, topping them off with the rest of the pecans. Put the tray in the oven for about 20 minutes. Let the treats cool for 5 minutes before taking a knife and cutting them out slowly with a knife. Let the snacks cool on a wire rack and store them in an airtight container! Enjoy!

Poll: Overwhelming Majority Support Medical Marijuana In Pennsylvania

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, March, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-supportI have always said that if there are patients suffering in a state, and medical marijuana will help those patients alleviate their suffering, than that state’s legislature should legalize medical marijuana. This is especially true if voters in that state support such a move. One would think that a politician would take ownership of the idea and push it through the state legislature, and in the process look like a genius.
 
I’m hoping that will be the case in Pennsylvania. A recent Mercyhurst Center of Applied Politics poll found that 85% of people support medical marijuana in Pennsylvania. I think people would be hard pressed to find an area of public policy that has that level of support in Pennsylvania. According to the poll:
 
A sizeable majority of Pennsylvania voters (85%) favor making it legal for patients to use marijuana if it was prescribed by their doctor, and only 10% oppose the position. The prospect of legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes appears to have widespread support across key demographic groups including age, education, ideology, and party identification, and is favored in all five Pennsylvania’s regions (see Cross Tabulations).
