Washington DC Likely To Approve Marijuana Decriminalization
Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
The Washington D.C. City Council Committee on the Judiciary and Public Safety held a public hearing last night on legislation introduced earlier this year by Councilman Tommy Wells. There is another hearing scheduled for today. Media report after media report has shown overwhelming support for the legislation. According to NBC:
“With the majority of the D.C. Council supporting at least decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana, it seems likely that the District’s marijuana laws will change next year…”
The Simple Possession of Small Quantities of Marijuana Decriminalization Act that was introduced by Councilman Tommy Wells would make possession of up to an ounce by those 18 years of age or older a civil violation, punishable by a $100 fine. Under the current law, possession of any amount of marijuana in D.C. is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail and/or a maximum $1,000 fine.
This would be a welcomed change for not only Washington D.C. residents, but also American citizens nationwide. If Washington D.C. changes it’s marijuana laws, it’s another clear sign of changing times and sends a signal to states nationwide that it’s time to reform their marijuana laws as well. I felt the same way when Washington D.C. finally implemented it’s medical marijuana law.
Below is a written testimony that NORML submitted, which was very well written and makes outstanding points. How do readers feel about this? Do you live in the D.C. area? If so, how do you feel about it?

Medicated Apple Treats
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, October, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
In the spirit of fall, this recipe seems to be extremely appropriate. Apple picking is a popular pastime for smokers in the fall. You can't argue with so many objects to make pipes out of, plus hiding in the apple tree fields can be a fun and lovely experience. Fall is a great time for stoners and these medicated apple treats can be made after a day of apple picking!
What You'll Need;
4 Cored Apples
2 tbsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Cannabis
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Using a coffee grinder, turn the cannabis in to a fine powder. Be sure to use bud that is more dry than normal. Sticky weed is not a benefit in cooking situations. Take the butter, warm water, cannabis, and sugar and add them together in a blender. Blend them together until they form a paste-like substance. Add what's in the blender in to the middle of the apples. Place apples on a cookie sheet and put them in the over for 25 minutes on 350 degree heat. Upon removing the apples from the oven, sprinkle cinnamon over the tops of the apples. You can add whipped cream as well if you'd like and possibly a cherry. Enjoy these apple treats on a nice fall night with friends or next to a bonfire! Where ever you choose to eat them, you'll love them!
