New Jersey Assembly Committee Approves Industrial Hemp Legislation
Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
The New Jersey Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee voted 4-1 in favor of Assembly Bill 2415. This legislation would legalize the licensed cultivation of industrial hemp.
Members of NORML New Jersey were present to testify in favor of this legislation.
“We commend the Committee for taking a common sense approach to allow the growth of industrial hemp in New Jersey,” stated NORML New Jersey Executive Director Evan Nison, “Our cannabis laws are nonsensical, and few issues embody this more obviously and plainly than the prohibition of industrial hemp. We hope the absurdity of these laws will encourage members of the legislature and the public to reevaluate marijuana laws across the board.”
“The passage of this bill will help pressure the Federal Government to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp, much like nearly all other industrialize counties do, to help our environment and provide another crop for farmers.” Nison continued, “Many members of Congress are already supportive of such reforms, and states showing an eagerness to allow this crop will encourage Congress to get it done. ”
The United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate industrial hemp as an economic crop, according to a 2005 Congressional Resource Service (CRS) report. Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa that contains only minute (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Farmers worldwide grow hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products, including food and clothing. Assembly Bill 2415 would allow New Jersey to authorize a licensed, statewide hemp industry. A2415 now awaits action on the floor of the New Jersey Assembly.

Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, November, 26th 2013 by THCFinder
Gravy is basically required for a Thanksgiving meal. It''s what makes the turkey taste that much better. Not feeling very motivated to medicate everything on your table this year? Simply medicating the gravy will get you and your family/friends stoned enough to still have room for dessert!
What You'll Need;
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
2 large onions, sliced thin
½ cup balsamic vinegar
Turkey, chicken or vegetable stock
1/3 cup flour
2 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
6 Tbsp cannabutter
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Grab a large skillet and melt your cannabutter over medium heat. Watch it closely. Add in your sliced onions and sauté them for about ten minutes. Then, toss in the rosemary and sage and cook for another ten minutes. Gradually add in the flour and whisk the mixture for a minute. Slowly whisk in the stock and begin to boil the mix until it begins to thicken. Stir everything frequently. Grab the pan that you used to cook the turkey in and pour the juices out in to a cup. Spoon off the fat that rises to the top and pour the juices in with the gravy.
In your roasting pan, add vinegar. Bring that to a simmer over medium, scraping up the browned bits left behind. Pour this new mixture in to a small sauce pan. Boil it for about 3 minutes and then add it in to the gravy. Stir it together well. Add salt and pepper for seasoning if you choose.
