Third medical marijuana dispensary to open in Woodbridge
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, November, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
TRENTON — New Jersey's third medical marijuana dispensary is now accepting registrations for future patients who will be able to buy from the retail site by the end of the year, Health Commissioner Mary O'Dowd announced today.
Garden State Dispensary, formerly known as Compassionate Care Center of America, is located on Route 1 north in Woodbridge near routes 35 and 9. Registration is important because patients may be affiliated with only one dispensary, O'Dowd said.
"Patients now have three options to choose from in terms of geographic location, quality of service and the number and type of strains available," O'Dowd said in a statement.
An opening date has not been announced.
"We are in the final phases of inspections, and working very closely with regulators," said Florida Attorney Yale Galanter, who is the spokesman for the dispensary.
Some 1,500 patients and caregivers have registered with the state's program, which has gotten off to a very slow start, much to the disappointment of patients.
In March 2011, the health department awarded contracts to six nonprofits, two each for north, central and south Jersey, to serve the state. Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc. of Egg Harbor opened last month; Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair opened in December.

Weed & Beer
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
As someone who's served alcohol to the public for almost five years, knowing pairings of beer and food is extremely important. And while I have written an article regarding wine and weed, I haven't done anything about beer and weed. There are some beer enthusiasts out there who enjoy some hops with their bud. Here are a few brews that go well with cannabis of any kind!
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA - Extremely popular, this beer has a rating of 97 of Beer Advocate, which is a beer rating scale that is used by bars everywhere to determine their inventory. The 90 Minute IPA has a strong malt backbone and a great hop flavor. Combined with cannabis, the 90 Minute IPA makes a good partner for a well rolled joint.
Chimay Blue - An extremely dark beer, Chimay Blue carries the taste of sweet malt, molasses, plum, and raisins. An extremely smooth beer, it gets a rating of 96 on BA and goes well with Super Silver Haze or Headband.
Humbolt Brown Hemp Ale - It didn't get a good rating on BA but with a name like Hemp Ale, I had to include it. This beer was recently renamed to just Humbolt Brown. It's darkish brown with some lighter edges and smells grassy and slightly citrusy with a small hint hops in the background. While closer to a stout, the Humbolt Brown will go well with potent cannabis strains.
Raging Bitch - This beer is extremely popular... Mostly because people seem to laugh when ordering a beer called Raging Bitch but it does go well with a bowl, specifically fruity strains. With strong notes of caramel, banana, and pine, there are underlying hints of orange and clove. This beer is good for any season and any beer lover.
Namaste - Another wonder from Dogfish, the Namaste beer comes served in a large bottle, which makes the drinker feel quite fancy. This beer has a low alcohol content so it's good for people with an alcohol sensitivity. The taste of citrus goes well with the grassy underlying hints. Match this with a bowl of your favorite citrus weed and you'll have a wonderfully relaxing night.

10 tons of marijuana seized at Arizona border
Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) -- Federal officials are reporting a record seizure of marijuana at an Arizona crossing on the U.S.-Mexico border.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference to provide details on the seizure of more than 10 tons of marijuana at the Mariposa port of entry on the outskirts of Nogales.
That busy crossing point is used by commercial traffic, including trucks hauling Mexican produce into the United States.
According to the CPB, the seizure surpasses the previous record seizure in Arizona of 14,121 pounds, or slightly over 7 tons, of marijuana on Jan. 15.
The agency says the seized marijuana is valued at more than $10.1 million.
