New York State Voters Want Marijuana Legalization
Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, December, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
High-strung New Yorkers are ready for a little bit of mellow mary jane.
A new poll from the Quinnipiac University finds that New Yorkers favor pot legalization 51 to 44, perfectly mirroring national sentiment on the issue. Democrats, Independents, men and college-degree holders support the idea, while Republicans, women, those with no higher education, as well as those 65 years of age and older do not.
Protestants are evenly divided (48-48) on the plant – which theoretically came from their all-knowing God. Catholics support pot legalization (48-47), Jews do not (46-50). Atheists strongly support pot legalization (70-24). Upstate New Yorkers support legalization (49-44), City-folk support it (54-33), and those in the suburbs support it (50-44).
Too bad New York lacks a ballot initiative process whereby the popular vote matters. Instead, New Yorkers will have to work with their legislators in Albany, NY, who stand firmly in the way of any drug law reform.
In fact, New York has one of the worst records in the world for stopping, frisking, and arresting people for minor amounts of herb – a huge waste of police resources and taxpayer dollars. (Read ‘Human Rights Watch Blasts NYPD for Half-Million Frivolous Weed Arrests’ here.)
Quinnipiac Pollsters asked 1,302 New York state voters between Dec. 5-10 the question “Do you think that the use of marijuana should be made legal in New York State, or not?” The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points.
Almond Canna-Butter Coffee Cake
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, December, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
2 1/4 cups flour
1 package active yeast
2/3 cup milk
6 tablespoons vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 1/2 tablespoons cannabis butter (melted)
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of the flour and the package of active yeast. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat the milk, vegetable shortening and 4 tablespoons of the sugar. Stir until vegetable shortening softens. Add wet ingredients to yeast and flour mixture. Add the egg and beat with electric mixer for 1 minute. Scrape sides well and continue beating for 3-5 minutes. Stir in the remaining flour to create a pliable dough.
Grease a round baking pan (8-9 inch) or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Turn dough into baking pan. Sprinkle the top of the dough with remaining sugar and sliced almonds. Cover with a clean, damp dishcloth to allow dough to rise—usually about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Drizzle melted cannabis butter over risen dough. Bake for 17-20 minutes
