Foodies feast on organic, gluten-free edible marijuana treats
Adding cannabis to everything from iced coffee to breath mints, startups are jockeying for a bite of California’s growing marijuana edibles market as the state gears up to allow recreational pot sales.
The industry that barely existed 10 years ago — apart from a few bakers making pot brownies in their home kitchens — now shows no sign of slowing down.
“There’s a brand boom going on right now, particularly in preparation for adult use legalization here,” said Troy Dayton, CEO of The Arcview Group, a research and investment services firm focusing on marijuana businesses. “Not all of them are going to do well, but there’s just so many different types of edibles hitting different market segments.”
Strawberry Kush (Indica)
Strawberry Kush (Strawberry Cough x OG Kush) is a California sensation and a growers dream as the OG Kush helps to hulk out the notoriously finicky and low yielding Strawberry Cough. The smell is very fruity (like Strawberries) with earthy and chemy overtones from the OG. The taste of more typical of Chemdawg, with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is a very uplifting sativa high.
Lawmakers Still Haven’t Done Their Jobs And Legalized Marijuana
In between collecting campaign contributions from our oligarchical betters and cashing out their morals in exchange for more power, lawmakers also occasionally make laws.
Eventually, lawmakers may even make a law supported by almost two-thirds of their bosses—us—and pass a law that legalizes marijuana, rather than leaving the job up to voters. Which is what they’ve been content to do so far.
To date, every state that’s legalized marijuana has done so at the ballot box. Colorado, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Massachusetts, Maine—in each state where cannabis is legal for adults 21 and over, it’s legal because of a voter initiative, despite massive public support for cannabis legalization.
How Canada Figured Out How to Win the Drug War
So close yet so far apart. The United States and Canada have so much in common—except that our current governments are from different planets, especially when it comes to drug policy.
Examples: Lucie Charlebois, Québec’s Minister of Public Health, recently announced the opening in Montreal of two centers where people will be able to inject illicit drugs under a nurse’s supervision.
On that very same day, our Attorney General, Jeff Sessions directed prosecutors to seek the harshest possible charges in federal drug cases. Why? Because “drugs and crime go hand in hand,” said Sessions.
He’s wrong, of course, according to every academic study ever done on the topic.
But Sessions, like every member of the Trump administration, refuses to use facts to bolster their outrageous comment and actions.
