Oregon Racial Justice Groups: End Marijuana Prohibition

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, September, 30th 2014 by THCFinder
end-marijuana-probibitionPeople of color in Oregon are 100 percent more likely to face legal punishments for marijuana than white people, despite equal rates of use. The current system is failing, and the following groups today are endorsing Measure 91 because it removes unfairly harsh punishments that disrupt lives.
 
The new groups to endorse Measure 91 are:
 
Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO), which has worked for social justice for more than 15 years and continues to evolve as Oregon’s leading Asian and Pacific Islander grassroots advocacy organization.
 
Partnership for Safety and Justice, which works to reform the criminal justice system and achieve a more balanced approach to public safety. They join the ACLU of Oregon and the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association as other criminal justice organizations endorsing Measure 91.
 
Western States Center, which has worked for 27 years on community organization to challenge and transform individuals, organizations and systems to achieve racial, gender and economic justice.
 
The Rural Oregon Project, which represents tens of thousands of Oregonians in small towns and rural communities in all 36 of Oregon’s counties.
 
“Too many people have been punished, and too many of them have been youth and people of color,” said the Partnership for Safety and Justice in a statement. “Too many tax dollars have been wasted without increasing public safety. Too many public resources have been diverted that could have been used to help crime victims and address unmet community needs across Oregon…. We believe that it is time to start addressing marijuana realistically as a health, education and economic issue. Measure 91 would do just that.”
 
Every day the encompassing list of groups embracing Measure 91 as a better approach to marijuana regulation is growing. They represent hundreds of thousands of Oregonians with a wide range of concerns.
 
Measure 91 will regulate, legalize and tax marijuana for adults 21 and over in Oregon. Revenue raised from a regulated market will fund schools, state and local law enforcement and drug treatment and prevention programs.

Alaska In Shock After Reporters Resignation

Category: News | Posted on Tue, September, 30th 2014 by THCFinder
alaska-in-shockBy now, most people have read the story of the Anchorage, Alaska reporter Charlo Greene. For those of you who haven't heard the story yet, you might want to log on to Instagram or Facebook every once in a great while. In case you've missed the hype, Greene managed to really get people talking by quitting her job on live television after declaring her love and support for the cannabis plant. She also revealed that she is the head of the Alaska Cannabis Club, a marijuana business located in Alaska. But last Sunday, Greene finally announced her role in the club and resigned from her reporting job on live TV in a way that some people think may have been a little over the edge.
 
While in the middle of the evening news, Greene stated, "Now everything you've heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana." Greene's next statement shocked everyone. "And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but fuck it, I quit." The ballsy reporter then walked off the camera, which then is aimed at the main anchor, looking like someone had just spit in her morning coffee. After a brief but stunned silence, the anchor apologized for the clip and moved on with the news.
 
Now, if you've seen the movie Waiting, you'll understand the hilarity of what happened on the news stations Twitter/Facebook accounts. The station director, Bert Rudman, claimed that Greene had been "terminated for the use of inappropriate language". Unfortunately for Rudman, we all have seen the YouTube clip. She straight up quit. And much like the scene in Waiting, where Justin Long resigns from his job, the boss has to backpedal and try to make himself look like the good guy. "You didn't quit... You walked in and I fired you! You're fired! Get out of my sight!" We can only imagine that Greene's resignation was handled the same way.
 
When asked about the way she went out, Greene wasn't sorry for her choice of salty words but she did apologize to those who she may have offended. "I wanted to draw attention to the issue and the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real. Most patients didn't know the state didn't set up the framework to get patients their medicine."
 
While some people may think that the way Greene went about leaving was wrong, the internet shows very strong support of what she did. The world is a very unkind place and people are incredibly desensitized. Watching the news and hearing someone drop the F bomb will most certainly draw some attention. And Greene is absolutely getting that. The video has been liked, shared, and spread far across the vast internet universe and Greene is now said to be one of the marijuana heroes. She took a stand for something that she believed in and quit her job on live TV. Even if you don't support her language, you have to support the courage it takes to do something so incredibly brave. Charlo Greene, you are the real MVP.

Medicated Chicken Breast Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, September, 29th 2014 by THCFinder
medicated-chicken-breast-recipe
Not every cannabis infused treat has to be made with a ton of sugar and chocolate. Since cannabis can be made in to butters, oils, sugars, and flours, you can pretty much make any regular meal with cannabis added in to it. This particular recipe will leave you with an amazing chicken breast that not only tastes amazing but will also get you super stoned as well. You can also store the chicken after it is prepared to eat later or you could cut it up and make sandwiches, chicken salad, or some other dish that you might happen to be fond of!
 
What You'll Need;
1/4 cup dry white wine, or chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons liquid cannabutter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 
Be sure to clean the chicken well before handling it and remember to clean your hands before and after dealing with raw meats. After you've made sure that your hands are clean, lay the chicken breasts out on a piece of tinfoil and sprinkle them with the salt and pepper. Taking a large skillet, heat the cannabutter over medium heat and add the chicken. Sauté until fully cooked, around 11 minutes total. Be sure to turn them once to be sure that both sides get some heat. Once the chicken is cooked, move it to a warm plate and be sure to keep it warm while you prepare the rest of the meal.
 
Take the wine (or chicken broth, whichever you chose) and pour in to the hot skillet. Cook this while continuously stirring until the amount is reduced by half. Add in the tarragon, cream, and mustard and whisk them all together, while still cooking, for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is thick. If there are juices from the chicken on the plate that you have been letting them sit on, pour them in to the sauce. Once you are ready to eat the chicken, slowly drizzle the sauce over the meat. You can also add some medicated green beans to this meal and possibly even some cannabis infused mashed potatoes! Enjoy!
