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!
Girl Scout Profits From Dispensary Spot
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
We all know that Girl Scout cookies are a hugely craved munchies snack among stoners. Thin Mints? Hell yeah, sign us up! A little girl in Phoenix discovered how much pot smokers love the Girl Scout cookies when she set up shop outside a dispensary. The 8-year-old, Lexi Menees, was given the idea by her mother, Heidi Carney, who was following the idea of a teenager who sold a ton of cookies at a dispensary in San Francisco a few days prior.
When the little girl showed up at TruMed Dispensary with her parents, she had somewhere between 100-150 boxes of cookies. In the few hours that they were out there, the little girl got rid of more than 50 boxes of cookies. Justin Menees, Lexi's father, said that this amount was far more then they would've sold outside of a grocery store, a valid point seeing as how you can just buy cookies inside the grocery store. A Girl Scout selling cookies right outside a dispensary gives patients a one stop shop for their meds and a snack.
While some people see an issue with this, the president of TruMed Dispensary and oncology nurse Lauren Gooding, says that she hopes that the presence of the Girl Scouts will help to eliminate the negative stigma attached to marijuana dispensaries. There was also a security guard on site to make sure that no one consumes or broadcasts a marijuana purchase, ensuring that Lexi was never exposed to the plant and it was pretty much just like selling at Walgreens or CVS.
The feelings of the Girl Scouts vary state to state. While some states, like Arizona, have had their spokesperson claim that as long as the child is safe, the parents have the choice of where to set up shop, others like Colorado have strictly prohibited members from selling at marijuana stores. The organization said that while the "recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don't feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado".
