Ohio Supreme Court: Change the Wording on ResponsibleOhio’s Ballot Description

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

The Ohio Supreme Court handed down a verdict earlier this week that suggested the state intentionally penned a misleading description of ResponsibleOhio’s initiative to legalize marijuana and ordered election officials to edit the content with a less subjective voice. 

In the ruling, the state’s highest court determined that the Ohio Ballot Board and its fearless leader, Secretary of State Jon Husted, made a number of errors in the authoring of an overview for Issue 3. Among the fowl ups was the fact that the state provided inaccurate details about the proposal and “omits essential information” that could bamboozle voters into making a swayed decision.

“The cumulative effect of these defects in the ballot language is fatal because the ballot language fails to properly identify the substance of the amendment, a failure that misleads voters,” the verdict stated.

However, while the court ordered the Ballot Board to rewrite four specific paragraphs dealing with the how retail pot shops would be allowed to open as well as the areas of cultivation and personal possession, they did not budge on the ballot’s title, which uses the word “monopoly” – a term that has been at the pulse of this controversial measure from the beginning.

Salmon that will get you baked: weed-infused fish the latest in cannabis cuisine

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, September, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Sliced thin with flecks of dill peeking out, the salmon looks like any other of gravlax you would have for brunch. But put it on a bagel with a schmear of cream cheese, and you will get pretty stoned eating this delicacy.

The mastermind behind the THC-infused salmon – cured in salt, dill, lemon, sugar and a weed tincture – is Josh Pollack, owner of Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen in Denver.

“I love bagels and lox, and I love cannabis,” Pollack said.

Pollack, a New Jersey native who grew up going to establishments like Russ and Daughters, moved to Colorado for college. He loved the state, but missed the bagels from back east. After graduating, he worked in finance for a while, but tired of that and moved on to a more fulfilling passion: food.

Ronda Rousey About NSAC: “There’s No Reason For Them To Be Testing For Weed”

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, September, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

ronda rousey marijuanaRecently, mixed martial arts fighter Nick Diaz was suspended for five years by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for testing positive for marijuana. The outcry against such a harsh penalty was swift from the cannabis community, and from UFC fans everywhere. People were quick to point out that when someone fails a test for steroids, they are given a one year suspension. So why such a harsh sentence for Nick Diaz? Mixed martial arts champion and superstar Ronda Rousey had some very candid words for the Nevada State Athletic Commission over Nick Diaz’s suspension. Per MSN:

“I’m sorry, I know no one asked me anything but I have to say something,” Rousey said. “It’s so not right for (Diaz) to be suspended five years for marijuana. I’m against them testing for any weed at all. It’s not a performance-enhancing drug. It has nothing to do with athletic competition, and it’s only tested for political reasons so they say, ‘Oh, it’s only for your safety so you’re not hurting yourself when you’re out there.’ So why don’t they test for all the other things that could possibly hurt us that we could be under the influence of while we’re out there?

“There’s no reason for them to be testing for weed. In athletics, the beautiful thing about it is it separates everything from politics. It shouldn’t be involved at all.”

Rousey expressed frustration in the fact Diaz’s UFC 183 opponent Silva, who failed multiple drug tests around the event for anabolic steroids, was only handed a one-year suspension for his violation. Diaz’s repeat offender status played a role in the outcome of his case, but regardless of that, Rousey said the difference in punishments shows an obvious problem.
