Weed & Beer
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
As someone who's served alcohol to the public for almost five years, knowing pairings of beer and food is extremely important. And while I have written an article regarding wine and weed, I haven't done anything about beer and weed. There are some beer enthusiasts out there who enjoy some hops with their bud. Here are a few brews that go well with cannabis of any kind!
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA - Extremely popular, this beer has a rating of 97 of Beer Advocate, which is a beer rating scale that is used by bars everywhere to determine their inventory. The 90 Minute IPA has a strong malt backbone and a great hop flavor. Combined with cannabis, the 90 Minute IPA makes a good partner for a well rolled joint.
Chimay Blue - An extremely dark beer, Chimay Blue carries the taste of sweet malt, molasses, plum, and raisins. An extremely smooth beer, it gets a rating of 96 on BA and goes well with Super Silver Haze or Headband.
Humbolt Brown Hemp Ale - It didn't get a good rating on BA but with a name like Hemp Ale, I had to include it. This beer was recently renamed to just Humbolt Brown. It's darkish brown with some lighter edges and smells grassy and slightly citrusy with a small hint hops in the background. While closer to a stout, the Humbolt Brown will go well with potent cannabis strains.
Raging Bitch - This beer is extremely popular... Mostly because people seem to laugh when ordering a beer called Raging Bitch but it does go well with a bowl, specifically fruity strains. With strong notes of caramel, banana, and pine, there are underlying hints of orange and clove. This beer is good for any season and any beer lover.
Namaste - Another wonder from Dogfish, the Namaste beer comes served in a large bottle, which makes the drinker feel quite fancy. This beer has a low alcohol content so it's good for people with an alcohol sensitivity. The taste of citrus goes well with the grassy underlying hints. Match this with a bowl of your favorite citrus weed and you'll have a wonderfully relaxing night.

10 tons of marijuana seized at Arizona border

NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) -- Federal officials are reporting a record seizure of marijuana at an Arizona crossing on the U.S.-Mexico border.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference to provide details on the seizure of more than 10 tons of marijuana at the Mariposa port of entry on the outskirts of Nogales.
That busy crossing point is used by commercial traffic, including trucks hauling Mexican produce into the United States.
According to the CPB, the seizure surpasses the previous record seizure in Arizona of 14,121 pounds, or slightly over 7 tons, of marijuana on Jan. 15.
The agency says the seized marijuana is valued at more than $10.1 million.

Marijuana Ads Threaten Anti-Herb Protesters
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
While cannabis gains more support from the citizens, the media is becoming an outlet for pro-marijuana ads. Since 58% of Americans support legalizing the plant, it's become the proper time to begin promoting through advertisements that are put on blast for everyone to see. Now that the ads are being put out, those against the plant are beginning to worry... For all the wrong reasons.
The argument that protestors give against the ads being published is that they will increase the use of marijuana among young users. If this was, in fact, a valid argument, then the beer ads should be pulled off the air as well because those are far more pushy about using the product advertised than the cannabis ads. While alcohol commercials depict either classy lifestyles or fun times at the beach, the cannabis ads look more like something that would be seen on a doctors office wall.
Since the ads are being run to promote citizens voting "yes" on certain bills passing cannabis, they are protected by the First Amendment. Thankfully, the ads are designed to change a low and they have to be allowed since freedom of speech is still one of the rights we have left. But again, the protesters have some rebuttal. Instead of seeing the positive change, all their eyes portray is the allowance of an illegal substance that they really know nothing about. They always come back to the fact that they feel that they're defending their kids.
Marijuana may not be good for child consumption. There's definitely more research needed on that topic for sure. However, by blocking out the world for children will prevent them from developing the coping skills needed to survive in the world today. If the parents think that by not allowing their children to see the opposite opinion will "save" them, they're very wrong. Kids are extremely smart. Whether they are sheltered while growing up or not, when they are old enough, they will make their own choice, regardless of what the parent thinks.
