How To Make The Best Cannabis Butter
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, December, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
There are hundreds of ways to make cannabis butter. People have little tips and tricks that will hopefully maximize the effect you get. But be sure that you’re using a high quality strain of cannabis. The type of weed you use will greatly effect the outcome of your butter. As always, you can store the butter in the fridge for later cooking!
In a medium saucepan, bring a quart of water to boiling on the stove. The amount varies but be aware that the marijuana should float about 1.5 inches above the bottom of the pan. Once the water has begun to boil, place the butter in the pan and allow it to completely dissolve. The ratio for this is about 2 sticks of butter for every half ounce (14 grams) of weed. You can adjust that ratio as much as you need to.
When the butter has melted completely, you can add in the marijuana. Once you do this, remember to turn the heat down on the burner to low or simmer. Put the burner on the lowest possible setting for this part and let it cook for about three hours. Once the mix turns glossy and thick, you’ll know it’s done. But while the butter is cooking, you can set up a bowl that will hold the finished product. Using a heatproof Pyrex bowl is recommended but you can also use a plastic food container. Take two layers of cheesecloth and place them over the opening of the bowl, securing it with a rubber band or string.
After the marijuana mix has reached the glossy consistency, pour the mix over the cheesecloth in to the bowl. Be careful not to spill any and also, be sure that you have a pair of rubber gloves laying around as well. After you’ve poured the butter/weed mix in to the bowl, remove the cheesecloth and squeeze out the remaining mixture. Don’t want to waste any of the cannabis butter! Once the butter is in the dish and properly sealed, let it cool off for about an hour. Once the butter has cooled, use a knife to carefully pry the butter out, upside-down on a clean cooking board. Inspect the butter chunk to make sure that there’s no cooking water left on the bottom (if there is, you can scrape it off with the knife) and your butter is ready to be cooked with!
Washington School Refuses $14,000 Donation From Marijuana Farmer
Category: News | Posted on Tue, December, 2nd 2014 by THCFinder
Legalizing marijuana has done big things for schools in Washington and Colorado. A portion of marijuana taxes goes towards much needed school funding, which is a great thing. However, despite schools being cash strapped and needing all the help they can get, it hasn’t stopped a school in Prosser, Washington from refusing a sizable donation from a marijuana grower. Per the Seattle Times:
School officials Monday flatly turned down a $14,000 donation from a local marijuana farmer, taking a strong stand against youth marijuana use.
“We’re not taking it; end of story,” said Ray Tolcacher, Prosser School District superintendent.
The donor, Randy Williams, now is looking for another local recipient.
“I never thought it’d be a problem to give money away,” said the owner of Fireweed Farms, a marijuana producer.
Imagine how many books $14,000 could have bought? Or computers? Or school lunches for children that don’t get enough to eat at home? It’s a sad thing that reefer madness is so pervasive in some areas that a school won’t accept a donation, simply because it came from a marijuana grower. It sounds like Fireweed Farms is trying to see if the local Boys and Girls Club will accept the donation. I sure hope so, because $14,000 would pay for a lot of things for underprivileged youth.
Former Oregon Police Support Cannabis

Even though some law enforcement officers support the idea of cannabis legalization, they are still bound to uphold the “law” and arrest those that are thought to be in possession of the plant. In Oregon, that issue is no more since the law has already passed but a few days before the polls, a letter was written by a coalition of law enforcement officers that came out with public support of Yes On 91. Judges, police, and sherifs contributed to the writing of the letter, saying that the treatment of marijuana as a crime has failed. “Arresting and citing thousands of people in Oregon and elsewhere for marijuana related crimes is a distraction to law enforcement and a misuse of taxpayer resources. The time and money spent should go to make our communities safer. Police resources should be focused on violent criminals, thieves, and criminal cartels.”
The passing of Oregon’s Measure 91 allows adults to possess up to eight ounces of cannabis at home and up to one in public. With the taxes from the recreational sales, Oregon hopes to fund school programs, law enforcement, and drug prevention/educational programs. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is now responsible for the regulation and monitoring of the new industry which will take full effect next year. Oregon joins Colorado and Washington, along with Washington DC and Alaska. Florida was hoping to join the legal medical marijuana market as well but the votes fell short in the sunshine state.
Oregon alone stands to make $17 million to $40 million annually from the recreational sale of cannabis. A recent revenue study from NerdWallet estimated that the numbers could skyrocket to $100 million. With the support of a good chunk of law enforcement, including Kris Olson, a retired US Attorney for the District of Oregon, Tony Ryan, a former Denver Police lieutenant, and Stephen Downing, a retired Los Angeles Police Department deputy sheriff, people should really begin to open their eyes to the possibilities of cannabis and a legal market, where everyone would benefit from the effects.
Although there are still those who voice their opposition to the passing of Measure 91, such as Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis, the measure has successfully passed in the state of Oregon. People like Marquis are worried about the repeated “intoxicated driving” and “increased use by minors”. But the numbers in Washington and Colorado have not yet reflected such worries. It’s believed that the forbidden idea of cannabis is less appealing if it’s allowed, not to mention the money being spent to educate the children as compared to brain wash them to hate a plant. While only time will tell what will really happen in regards to these worries, it’s not thought that any real negative effects will come from the legalization of cannabis in the near future. In fact, there are only positive things happening in Washington and Colorado. Now it’s Oregon and Alaska’s turn to reap some of the benefits from a legal marijuana market.
