Tobacco Gets A Kick In NY

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
tobacco-gets-a-kick-nyWow! Never thought that we'd see this day, right? Either the lawmakers in NY just simply forgot about stoners or they're just over the battle. Whatever the case may be, New York has made a huge move. The City Council voted on Wednesday that they're raising the age of tobacco sales to 21, while the age to purchase bongs and glass will remain at age 18.
 
While the article that I'm referencing (Posted by Jennifer Bain, Beth DeFalco, and Bruce Golding in the New York Post) didn't seem to keen on this being passed, saying that "kids can't purchase coffin nails, they'll still be able to blow their minds with weed". Unfortunately for their negative attitude towards the plant, the amount of cancer causing agents in a cigarette tromps all matters related to marijuana. There is rat poison in cigarettes, as well as paint thinner. If kids can be prevented from smoking, by all means, go for it. Marijuana is far safer than a cigarette and Mayor Bloomberg has the right idea with his war on Big Tobacco, rather than trying to stomp out marijuana, which will be legalized before we know it.
 
The state law says that selling paraphernalia is illegal, most stoners know that people get around that by claiming that the devices are used to smoke tobacco. Since the pieces don't come paired with tobacco, there's really no reason to change the law surrounding them. One person in the article stated that "Bloomberg is promoting pot smoking, if you think about it, by changing cigarette laws and not bong laws." There's not much thinking involved here... This is a strategic, subtle move by the Mayor.
 
Cigarettes are severely harmful to those who smoke them. There are still scientists claiming that marijuana is more harmful to the lungs than cigarettes but even if that's true, there are other ways for stoners to get high. There doesn't necessarily have to be smoking involved. This motion passing is a big step, whether it was meant to be or not. Bloomberg is definitely doing  good thing to prevent younger kids from getting their hands on cigarettes. While it will hopefully bring the low adolescent cigarette rate down even further, it may show that people in higher positions support marijuana use.

Remove Cop Who Said Cannabis Activists Are Stupid Welfare-Sucking Potheads Who Probably Can't Read

Category: News | Posted on Fri, November, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
bad-cops-stonersThe following is an open letter to Vice Preisdent of the Missouri Narcotics Officers Association Kevin Glaser. It was published on our blog on Tuesday and circulated to the media. As of this writing, it has been covered by the Riverfront Times in Saint Louis and in a front page story in the Southeast Missourian in Cape Girardeau on Thursday. So far, Glaser has not responded to me, despite the fact that I emailed him personally.
 
Sgt. Glaser,
 
I was pleased that you attended Show-Me Cannabis’ town hall meeting in Cape Girardeau last Monday, October 21. Believe it or not, we really are attempting to create a rational dialogue between the most ardent cannabis law reformers and prohibitionists and everyone in between. Despite our deep and passionate disagreements about how the law should treat those who use cannabis, I thought the discussion at the meeting remained civil and in good faith.
 
That is why I was deeply disappointed when I saw this on your public Facebook page on Wednesday:

First, I believe it is completely inappropriate for a man who has supposedly dedicated his life to public service to treat a broad swath of the public with such disdain. Just a few days after the meeting in Cape Girardeau, Gallup reported that 58 percent of the American public believes that cannabis should be legalized for adult use. Do you really mean to imply that 58 percent of the country has never visited a library, lives off welfare, and should be discouraged from voting?
 
Such comments are thoroughly unprofessional and unbecoming of a government employee, and I believe you owe the people who attended the meeting and Missouri taxpayers generally an apology.

Banana Honey Hash Ice Cream

banana-ice-cream-recipe
Summer may be over but people still have ice cream cravings while it's snowing out. And if you're craving ice cream, you should probably be eating medicated ice cream, right? This recipe for homemade ice cream is not only easy but delicious! Definitely highly recommended ;)
 
What You'll Need;
18fl of cream
Pinch of salt
15oz of bananas
3 tablespoons rum
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 oz crumbled hash or 10 grams crushed bud
75 grams sugar
5 tablespoons honey
 
Put the cream in a saucepan until it's nearly boiling, while melting the butter, sugar, and salt in a second pan. Take your hash and heat it up with a flame. Crumble it in to the melted butter, stirring continuously. Whisk the cream with the butter mixture. Mash up the bananas in a second bowl. When they've been thoroughly ground up, add in the cream, rum, and honey. You can add in other ingredients here as well, like nuts or crushed cookies. Pretty much anything you feel like adding.
 
Now that everything is put together, mix it well. All of the ingredients should be beaten together to form a paste-like substance. Pour it in to a cold, plastic container and cover it. Stick the bowl in the freezer for a few hours, until it's mushy. Turn the bowl over above a different chilled bowl. Whisk the substance until it's smooth and then cover it, placing it back in the freezer until it's firm. Before serving, move the ice cream to the fridge so that it has a chance to soften up.
