Colorado Pot Clubs Celebrate Legal Marijuana in New Year
Category: News | Posted on Tue, January, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
It was marijuana instead of champagne this year for some New Year's Eve revelers in Colorado, who lit up in private smoking clubs allowed for the first time under the state's new pot laws.
In Denver, people filled out an online application and paid a $30 fee to become part of Club 64, a private marijuana club named after the new pot law, Amendment 64. Members were advised of a private location in downtown Denver where they could attend a New Year's Eve party with other smokers.
"It went really well," said Robert Corry, an attorney who serves as general counsel for the group and helped shape the language of Amendment 64. "We rented out a retail shop for the evening. We had a DJ, music, some dancing, there was a bar and people brought alcohol, people brought food. It was a very warm, fun, happy evening."
Corry said that the idea for a members-only club had been in the works for years, and that Amendment 64 had been crafted specifically to allow for groups of private smokers. The initial gathering drew hundreds of interested smokers, Corry said.
"We're going to be getting together for periodic meetings and looking for a more permanent home. We hope to settle into a more stable spot in the future," he said. "We have a couple of hundred members at least, judging by last night. We're emerging from the shadows of prohibition, so there's' a lot of pent-up demand and interest."

Marijuana French Toast
Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, December, 31st 2012 by THCFinder
1 French baguette
1 ½ tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. cannabutter
1 cup milk
¼ cup sugar
3 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. salt
Lightly butter a 13 by 9-inch (32.5 by 23-cm) baking dish. Cut the baguette crosswise at an angle into 8 slices. Each should be about ¾ inch (2 cm) thick. Using a small bowl, cream the pair of butters together until thoroughly combined. Now spread the butter onto a single side of each of your 8 slices and then arrange them butter side up in your prepared baking dish.
Next, whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, syrup, vanilla, and salt. Pour the mixture over the bread and press the slices down into it before covering the dish and allowing it to refrigerate for 8 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Once heated, place the uncovered baking dish in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Dust them with powdered sugar and serve.
Vaporizer makes using marijuana less harmful

When using Medical marijuana keep in mind MMJ can be consumed by using a vaporizer, readily available over the Internet at your local head shop and even at some local Dispensaries, which is a device that passes air heated to 325 to 350 degrees over dried marijuana. This allows the active compounds, THC and other healthy (''non-high'' producing) compounds such as cannabadiol and cannabinol, to be inhaled without burning the plant cellulose, which ignites at 451degrees.
Other advantages of using a vaporizer are that much less material need be used and the active compounds are not partially destroyed by burning. This is an example of the public health concept of harm reduction and supports the argument to legalize marijuana.
