Marijuana Caramel Recipe
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
one (14 ounce) can of sweetened and condensed milk
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
a pinch of salt
1 cup of marijuana butter
Method to the Madness:
This incredible medical marijuana recipe produces a soft and chewy Caramel with an incredibly creamy and smooth texture. With only a few ingredient needed to complete this recipe, the novice cook can entertain that they are a skilled 5-star Michelin Chef. Once you have mastered creating these bite-size treats… you can cut them into any shape or size that fits your fancy.
To start, heat your pan at a relatively low temperature (higher temps. may decrease THC and cannabinoid potency) and add the medicated butter. Once the cannabis-infused butter has melted, add your brown sugar and salt. Stir this combination until its completely mixed. Gradually add your sweetened and condensed milk; making sure to stir constantly while removing all the clumps. When preparing these medicated treats, please make sure to use a medium to low heat, as there are several heat sensitive elements involved.
Preheat your oven to 245°F, then once ready, these tasty treats will be ready in about 12 to 15 min. or as the Caramel begins to harden. Keep your eye on the stove and just make sure not to overheat or the caramel will burn. Once you have a solid ball of medicated Caramel, remove it from the heat, and stir in your pre-measured vanilla extract. Placing your treats in a Pyrex dish to cool… will allow you the perfect medium for slicing and dicing your new treats and placing them on waxed paper.
Having a sweet-tooth, these caramels are some of my husband’s favorite ways to medicate. After experimenting with several different types of medicated baked goods, it is my opinion that my marijuana butter often works best in this recipe as compared to a traditional CannaButter. As a matter of personal taste, when they are still soft and have been cut, I like to sprinkle them with a little kosher salt to counter-balance the sweetness.
If I’m feeling adventurous and have the time…. I will occasionally give them a quick dip in chocolate as well. The combination of kosher salt and chocolate, on top of my medicated caramels is a treat for any . If you’re feeling creative you can also throw on different types of chopped fruits… apricots, raisins, or cranberries. Smoke a bowl and let your imagination fly…
N. J. patients hopeful the last hurdle has been cleared for medical marijuana
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, November, 28th 2012 by THCFinder
New Jersey health officials were upbeat on the day they announced that they were creating a long-awaited patient registry allowing seriously ill people to receive medical marijuana.
Within a couple of weeks, they predicted, eligible patients would be able to buy marijuana from the state's first dispensary, Greenleaf Compassion Center.
That was more than three months ago.
Patients say they have encountered mostly silence since then as they have waited anxiously for the call saying the nonprofit dispensary in Montclair, Essex County, is open for business.
While medical marijuana became legal in New Jersey in January 2010, the program has been set back by a series of delays, leaving patients on an emotional roller-coaster. The most recent delay was caused by confusion over whether marijuana sales should be taxed. After at least two weeks of discussions among various state officials, the Treasury Department decided Tuesday that the drug will be subject to the state's 7 percent sales tax.
For many patients, the last 90 days of waiting have been especially trying. They paid their $200 registration fee in August; their photo IDs arrived the next month by FedEx; and then, silence.
When they called the Health Department and Greenleaf, they couldn't get a clear answer on when the drug would be available, patients said.
State officials told them to await a call from Greenleaf with an appointment date; Greenleaf told them the state was still testing the marijuana plants and it did not know when it could dispense the drug.
Meanwhile, Greenleaf's website went blank, with visitors told only that it was "Temporarily Down for Maintenance." Its Facebook page also was stripped of the hundreds of postings and exchanges among patients who had eagerly shared their stories and concerns.

Indiana State Police leader says he would legalize marijuana and tax it
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, November, 28th 2012 by THCFinder
When it comes to legalizing marijuana, the politics can be tricky.
Paul Whitesell, superintendent of the Indiana State Police, learned that Tuesday after he told the State Budget Committee: “If it were up to me, I do believe I would legalize it and tax it.”
Later in the day, after news of his comments spread, the Indiana State Police issued a written statement clarifying the words of the agency’s leader. The statement described Whitesell’s comments as a “philosophical” opinion, not an official one.
“Although the superintendent personally understands the theoretical argument for taxation and legalization, as a police officer with over 40 years of experience he does not support the legalization of marijuana,” the statement said.
Whitesell is the latest in series of state officials in recent months to bring attention to the issue of decriminalizing or lessening penalties for marijuana possession.
Some political observers say the growing conversation indicates the issue could receive serious debate when the Indiana General Assembly convenes in January. However, considerable doubts remain that Indiana would go as far as Colorado and Washington, where voters earlier this month approved ballot initiatives to legalize small, recreational amounts of the drug.
Robert Dion, a political science professor at the University of Evansville, said that while there is a shift in the national attitude toward marijuana, he doesn’t think conservative Indiana will be among the leaders in easing laws against pot.
However, two Indiana lawmakers have said they would like to move in that direction.
