Gov. Christie: 'No crisis' because only one medical pot shop open

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, March, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
JERSEY CITY — Gov. Chris Christie said the slow progress of the medical marijuana program in New Jersey, where hundreds of people are waiting to obtain the drug from the state's lone supplier, is not a "crisis."
 
The Star-Ledger reported today that two years after the Department of Health awarded six nonprofits to grow and sell medical marijuana, only Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair is operating, and its owners said they are not prepared to serve patients from across the state. The five other nonprofits have encountered difficulty finding communities willing to host them, and completing the state's lengthy vetting process.
 
Christie said the vetting process is tough for a reason.
 
"You look at what's going on across the country," Christie said, talking about lax enforcement of other medical marijuana programs. "Not going to happen in New Jersey. If they have to go through more regulatory hoops to make sure only the truly sick and suffering get this, then that is what we are going to do."
 
The nonprofits have struggled to find communities willing to host them. Some have described the state's vetting process as arduous and confusing.
 
"We will approve new dispensaries as they meet the requirements under the regulations. (Health) Commissioner (Mary) O'Dowd is working hard to get them through the regulatory requirements," Christie told reporters at a press conference in Jersey City.
 
Christie also took aim against Greenleaf, which has served 114 patients at least once since opening Dec. 6. The remaining 562 registered patients face a two month-long wait before they get their turn.

Blue Dream strain review with HD pics

Category: Nugs | Posted on Wed, March, 6th 2013 by THCFinder

 

Blue Dream - Sativa

Blue Dream is a cross of Blueberry and Haze and was bred to provide the body high of an indica and the cerebral sativa effects. Blue Dream is highly effective for pain management without the sedative effects of a pure indica. Effects are long lasting and she has a pleasant fruity taste.

Strain Name: Blue Dream
 
Date Acquired: February 20, 2013
 
Current Menu: OCPC
 
Grade: A+
 
Type: Sativa
 
Looks: Nice, fat and tight marijuana nuggets. Well cured with a nice spring back with a two finger squeeze. Noticeable orange/rust colored "hairs" and heavily trichomed as if sprinkled with sugar, giving the marijuana nuggets a nice lime green hue .
 
Smell: Sweet creamy funk and spice with noticeable berry/fruity scent coming over the top of the nostrils.
 
Taste: Like a fruit flavored gum that is has lost flavor. A bit of "flat" after taste leaving a bit of dry mouth.
 
Buzz Type: Uplifting and energetic with some sense of focus. 
 
Buzz Length: Above Average to Long (1.5 to 2 hours)
 
Summary:
 
* I first medicated with Blue Dream years ago (I believe 2008-9) and have come across a few batches my during my initial years as a Medical Marijuana patient. But over the past two years of so, I've just strayed away from this strain probably due to its popularity as this has become a very popular strain for California growers. In California, Blue Dream and Blue Dream crosses are everywhere!
 
The marijuana nuggets I received were really nice and large which is typical of this strain. I love how I can squeeze a marijuana nugget and get that Charmin like bounce back. I was able to break off a piece of a marijuana nugget really easy without the whole nugget itself falling apart; very tight nuggets. Of the two large marijuana nuggets in hand, the second nugget I medicated with was very "sticky" as compared the first one I smoked off of. Residue and a slight scent was left on my fingers that I detect hours later.
 
This batch of Blue Dream had a nice scent that is not overpowering in the container nor does not linger with a "stench," but not the case with exhaled smoke; that did leave a STRONG "stench" in the area that took a few hours to dissipate. The scent left behind by exhaled smoke was a fruity funk; very pleasing to me, but NOT for the rest of my family. Thus, most smoking sessions were done out in the backyard.
 
On my first bowl, I was hit with an immediate sense of awareness. I "felt" a noticeable cerebral tingle that got me up and going. That "tingle" increased in intensity to the point where I could not sit still. I felt periods of a headband style kind of cerebral pressure. I had no issues working or playing while medicated with this batch of Blue Dream; although this strain did want me to be outdoors. Unfortunately, I was stuck many times indoors working. I felt somewhat "relaxed" on the come down.
 
Overall, the batch of Blue Dream is a nice day time strain and even for the evening if a pick up is needed to get you up and going. Can't forget about the focus this batch provided me, as for my "real job" that pays the bills, I did lots of work in timely fashion (getting stuff complete days before my deadlines).
 
I gotta say, no wonder Blue Dream is such a big hit in California. This batch I came across was an excellent Blue Dream grow. Seems to me California growers have "perfected" this strain. A real solid Sativa if you come across a good grow such as this!
 
Cheers (& Cough),

Iowa Senate Subcommittee Approves Medical Marijuana Bill

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
DES MOINES, IA – A bill that would legalize the medical use of marijuana in Iowa was approved by a Senate subcommittee Monday, but is unlikely to advance further this year.
 
Senator Joe Bolkcom, D-Iowa City, said that his bill, Senate File 79, lacks support in the full Human Resources Committee, where the bill has been assigned.
 
The bill was approved by a three person subcommittee on Monday following testimony from citizens suffering from multiple sclerosis and post-traumatic stress disorder,  who told the subcommittee that marijuana was a better alternative to synthetic prescription drugs.
 
Sen. Bolkom’s bill would exempt patients in Iowa suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, ALS, severe pain and nausea, and other ailments from arrest and prosecution for using marijuana under their physicians’ recommendations.
 
Patients or their caregivers would be able to grow their medicine or they could obtain it from a nonprofit dispensary.
 
Republican subcommittee member Sen. Joni Ernst opposed the bill, saying it would be difficult to ensure dispensaries wouldn’t sell marijuana to people without a recommendation.
