Zero Problems With Marijuana Candy On Halloween
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, November, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
On of the biggest scare tactics used in recent times by marijuana opponents was the ‘laced Halloween candy’ scare of 2014. Marijuana opponents made it sound like on every block there would be someone handing out marijuana candy to children on Halloween 2014. Obviously, that fear mongering was a political ploy to try to scare America into fearing marijuana reform, especially in areas that were voting on legalization. Fortunately, that tactic failed, and Alaska, Oregon, and D.C. all approved marijuana legalization on Election Day 2014.
Denver area authorities received not even one complaint about marijuana candy being given to children on Halloween. Not one. Which should not come as any surprise to anyone with a brain. Per the Yakima Herald:
Denver-area authorities said Monday they received no reports of children accidentally eating pot-laced candies this Halloween. Police had warned parents to be on the lookout for the edibles, which can look almost identical to brand-name treats.
Denver Police and the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center reported no cases of people slipping marijuana to unsuspecting trick-or-treaters.
Marijuana candy is not cheap if bought from a store, and is not easy to make at home. People that obtain marijuana candy intend to eat it themselves, not give it to a kid on Halloween. The fact that marijuana opponents would even suggest that one person would do it, let alone make it sound like an imminent epidemic, shows just how desperate they are these days.
Legal toking still months away despite pot votes in Alaska, Oregon

(Reuters) - Voters in the blue state of Oregon and red state of Alaska have joined the fledgling green column of the U.S. political map by choosing to legalize recreational marijuana, but supporters are not at liberty to light up or buy their cannabis just yet.
Ballot measures approved in both states on Tuesday will take months to go into effect, with pot enthusiasts in Oregon having to wait until next summer to legally indulge and neither state likely to make marijuana available for commercial sales before 2016.
"Anyone who is driving down the freeway and lights up a doobie and waives at an officer is going to get a ticket," Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis, spokesman for the defeated "vote no" campaign in Oregon, told Reuters.
The Oregon and Alaska measures will legalize recreational marijuana possession and usher in state-licensed retail pot shops similar to those that opened this year in Washington state and Colorado, which became the first to allow cannabis use for pleasure under 2012 voter initiatives.
District of Columbia voters on Tuesday approved legalization of marijuana possession but not its sale.
Supporters pointed to the outcome as a sign of growing acceptance of marijuana consumption as part of the American mainstream, with advocates of liberalized pot laws looking to California as their next battleground in 2016.
"In 2016 we're going to push the ball forward in several states until we end prohibition," said Leland Berger, a Portland attorney who helped write the new Oregon law.
But nothing changes immediately on the ground in Oregon or Alaska. The newly passed Alaska law is expected to go into effect next February, while Oregon pot smokers will have to wait until July 2015. Retail outlets are not expected to open in either state until the following year.
"Nothing will change for us in the interim, as marijuana possession has been a very low law enforcement priority for a long time," Portland police spokesman Peter Simpson said.
Legalization opponents in both states said they would push state legislators for tighter rules, including measures aimed at keeping marijuana out of the hands of children and to bar advertising that would appeal to youngsters.

Cream of Cannabis Soup Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Wed, November, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
Chilly nights call for some delicious soup, am I right? Or maybe you’re having a dinner party and just need a “before the meal” snack. Whatever the case may be, this cream of cannabis soup will warm you up in more ways than one. Both physically and mentally! This is also a great recipe for those who aren’t so fortunate and get sick at this time of year. The common cold wrecks havoc on people’s work lives so this might help you to be a little more lively and not miss one of those busy weekend shifts at work (or a day at work, if you do the normal 9 to 5). The following recipe makes 6 cups of cream of cannabis soup and keep in mind that if you’re not sharing, you can always save the extra for later!
What You’ll Need;
2 tbsp butter (1 tbsp of canna butter, 1 of regular butter)
2 medium potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups ready to serve chicken broth
2 large leeks
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 pound asparagus
Grab the leeks first and trim the roots and leaves off of them, leaving only the white part and about 2 inches of the green. Rinse the leeks well with cold water and the split them lengthwise and slice crosswise (about 1/2 an inch thick). Sauté the leeks in the canna butter/butter for about ten minutes on low heat or until they’re soft. Stir in the potatoes, salt & pepper, and the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. While this mixture cooks, trim the asparagus tips off and set them aside for your garnish (if you choose to use a garnish, this isn’t necessary). Discard the woody ends of the asparagus and chop the remaining pieces up and add them to the boiling soup. Reduce the heat of the burner and simmer, uncovered, for about ten minutes or until all the vegetables are tender. Then move the soup to the work bowl of a food processor or a blender if you don’t have a processor and blend them until they are all pureed. Put the soup in to a clean sauce pan and stir in the cream. Mix thoroughly.
If you choose to have the asparagus tips as a garnish, put the tips in salted boiling water in a small sauce pan. Cook these for about four minutes or until they are tender. Drain them well and garnish each serving with the tips. Your soup is done and enjoy!
