Christmas is quickly approaching and I haven't given you guys a single Christmas recipe this far! I stumbled upon this one and deemed it definitely sharable! Making this delicious snack will brighten up any snowy night (although you best be in a warm spot while eating!). Trust me, this recipe is something that you'll definitely want to try this Christmas season!
Cannabis Peppermint Ice Cream;
½ vanilla bean, sliced open and scraped out into the milk
1 organic egg yolk
1 ¼ cup non-fat milk
¼ cup sugar
Handful of fresh peppermint
1 extra large organic egg
1/4 cup weed that has been ground to dust in a coffee grinder
¼ cup sugar
Toss the milk, peppermint, vanilla bean, and cannabis in to a pan on the stove over low heat. As always, be sure not to boil this mixture. Slowly pour in the sugar and allow it to dissolve in the mix. After the sugar has been added, turn the heat off and cover the pan. This allows the flavors to gather together, giving the final result a stronger taste. Let this sit overnight in the fridge.
Then, beat the egg and the sugar together until the substance is white and bubbly. Strain this in to the milk mix and heat up over low heat on the stove. Again, avoid boiling the mixture and whisk into the eggs. Put the uncooked custard in a sauce pan and put on low heat. Be sure not to boil because the egg will curdle and ruin the ice cream that you're trying to make. To judge when this custard mix is done, it should stick to the back of a spoon and if you touch the spoon, the mark from your finger should stay. Let the mixture cool to room temp and the add it in to the ice cream canister. From this point on, follow the directions on the ice cream maker and when you're done that, you'll have a wonderful peppermint ice cream! You can add whatever toppings you want but here's a quick little caramel sauce that you can whip together really fast;
Take 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup heavy cream. 2 tbsp corn syrup, 1 tbsp canna butter, and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Put all of this in to a bowl and mix together well. The topping should take on a sticky texture, much like caramel topping. Put a bit of this on your medicated ice cream and enjoy!
Marijuana can treat almost anything!

Should Missouri legalize marijuana?

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. (KSDK) - More than 200 people gathered Wednesday night at the St. Louis Ethical Society in Richmond Heights for a marijuana debate of a different kind.
This time, the discussion involved law enforcement. The National Narcotics Officers Coalition has never addressed marijuana proponent organization, Show Me Cannabis, until now.
Vice President of NNOC, Sgt. Jason Grellner, said Show Me Cannabis has recently been holding several town meeting about legalizing marijuana in Missouri and he felt it was time people heard the other side.
Show Me Cannabis is planning to poll voters in 2014 to see if there is enough support to putting marijuana legalization on the ballot next year.
Show Me Cannabis Executive Director John Payne and Sgt. Grellner faced off in a respectful, professional debate for 90 minutes -- which included questions from the audience.
When asked who won, St. Louis City resident Cecil King said, "It's probably about half and half, both arguments on both sides, very good. It's something both sides should get involved in and take a look at."
"They both want the same end, which is to stop the abuse of a drug, but they're coming at it in different directions," said St. Louis City Resident Mike Votaw.
Sgt. Grellner says he has no immediate plans to debate again with Show Me Cannabis.
As the Missouri marijuana debate continues, it is important to note, that Illinois will legalize medical marijuana in January.

How You Can Help End Cannabis Prohibition
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, December, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
Let's face it, getting your voice heard is pretty difficult in such a loud world. Unless you're involved in politics, there's not a lot of people that are ready to listen to you. A lot of the people that are in power today grew up being told that cannabis was the devil's lettuce and that it made people crazy. While we're pretty sure that doesn't happen, not everyone is quite convinced. There are a lot of incredibly stubborn people in the world and convincing them that cannabis isn't bad takes a lot of patience. On an individual level, it can seem almost impossible to get involved in the industry.
Knowing how to use social media is the best way to get your voice heard. Social networking is a tool, not just something to fool around on for hours. By using social media, a person can gather likeminded people who, in turn, reach more likeminded people. It's a ripple effect but one must actually recognize what they're doing, much like a puppet master. By manipulating the channels of social media, a single idea can grow and spread until it becomes a movement. The sudden spike in cannabis enthusiasm came from somewhere... And with the amazing speed and connectivity of the internet, it could be safe to say that the web has had a large hand in getting people involved.
If you have a local NORML chapter, get involved with that. And if there isn't one around you, start one! They make it fairly easy to get a chapter going. Then you'll be at the head of a chapter and you can really work on getting cannabis to where it needs to be. Talk to people, especially family members, who are the hardest to convince of the benefits of cannabis. By educating other people, we can change their minds ever so slowly. It may take a while but in the end, every person who's mind you change counts! If, at the end of the day, you've managed to convince your marijuana-hating grandmother in to a slightly more accepting woman, then you've helped. It's the little things that really count.
