NH Governor's Hypocrisy Enrages Residents
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, January, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
The east coast is always kind of shoved to the back burner when it comes to marijuana advances. California has been a pioneer in many industries, constantly leaving the less-advanced coast struggling to catch up. Fortunately for those stoners who live on the east coast, officials are starting to realize (probably after seeing Colorado rake in so much money due to legal cannabis) that maybe making the plant legal is a good idea. Portland, Maine was the first to take steps towards legalization and now both New Hampshire as well as Florida are putting up ideas for cannabis legalization, managing to squeeze the east coast on to the board.
New Hampshire is a state that most people couldn't point out on a map. There are probably some people who would guess that it's in England. It's nestled up in the north east corner of the states, where it snows most of the year. While medical marijuana has been passed here, there are no dispensaries yet and lawmakers could take as much as another year to implement the ruling that was okayed what seems like forever ago. Bordered by both Vermont (medical), Maine (medical plus Portland), and Massachusetts (medical), New Hampshire seems to be pretty far behind. It seemed like lawmakers in this little state had their heads on straight this month when the House of Representatives voted in favor of allowing legal marijuana in New Hampshire, following the same basic outline as Colorado.
Unfortunately for the residents of New Hampshire, there is a slim chance that the ruling will pass the governor's desk. Maggie Hassan is the current governor, who has a seriously hypocritical way of running this chilly state. Hassan backs one of the worst substances sold legally - alcohol - even going as far as to announce that New Hampshire will carry it's own kind of vodka. It's bad enough that New Hampshire promotes drinking and driving by dotting the highways with state run liquor stores, allowing drivers to stop in quickly, grab a bottle of booze, and continue their commute. Seems great, right? Hassan has said that she "just thinks it's the wrong message to send to young people" but yet deems it acceptable to sell liquor on busy highways and to promote drinking, without any real acknowledgment of the danger and health risks associated with alcohol.
The situation in New Hampshire gets even more infuriating when hundreds of New Hampshire residents contacted Hassan, asking her to please pass the measure and allow marijuana to be legal in New Hampshire. Instead of responding, the governor released a blanket statement, thanking everyone for taking time out of their day to write to her... And that's pretty much where it ended. With such a twisted view on what's good and bad for the state, it's safe to say that Hassan won't be governing much if she does veto this bill. New Hampshire has a heavy sprinkling of colleges throughout, not to mention the allure of the mountains and nature settings attract the more hippie-like smokers as well. Hassan needs to remember that it's not about what she thinks, it's about what the people think.

"Baked" Kale Chips
Category: Recipes | Posted on Tue, January, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
Let's face it, stoners are some of the most health conscious people around these days and we do whatever we can to stay and be healthy. It doesn't stop at just smoking cannabis. The stoner diet is very important. I stumbled upon this amazingly delicious recipe for baked kale chips that are not only good for your health but will get you medicated as well.
What You'll Need;
2 tsp sea salt
1 kale bunch
3 tbsp cannabis infused olive oil
Preheat your oven to 350 F and line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper. Take a knife or kitchen shears and CAREFULLY remove the kale leaves from the thicker stems. Cut up the leaves in to small, chip sized pieces. The actual size of the chip is up to you. I made mine about 1 inch by 1 inch. Be sure to wash the leaves thoroughly and dry them. Some people have access to a salad spinner but for those that don't, I used paper towels and blotted them dry. Lay the kale out on the cookie sheet and slowly pour the cannabis olive oil over the the kale chips and then sprinkles with the sea salt and pepper, as well as any other spices that you'd like to add in. Place the chips in the oven and bake them until the edges begin to turn brown, absolutely no longer than 10 minutes. Let the chips cool off for a bit and your healthy, medicated snack is ready!
Actor Bill Murrays Views On Marijuana
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, January, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
Legendary actor Bill Murray recently participated in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ segment on Reddit.Com. It didn’t take long for someone to ask him the following question, “How do you feel about recreational marijuana?”. Bill Murray supplied the following answer:
“Well that’s a large question, isn’t it? Because you’re talking about recreation, which everyone is in favor of. You are also talking about something that has been illegal for so many years, and marijuana is responsible for such a large part of the prison population, for the crime of self-medication. And it takes millions and billions of dollars by incarcerating people for this crime against oneself as best can be determined.”
“People are realizing that the war on drugs is a failure, that the amount of money spent, you could have bought all the drugs with that much money rather than create this army of people and incarcerated people. I think the terror of marijuana was probably overstated. I don’t think people are really concerned about it the way they once were. Now that we have crack and crystal and whatnot, people don’t even think about marijuana anymore, it’s like someone watching too many videogames in comparison.”
“The fact that states are passing laws allowing it means that its threat has been over-exagerated. Psychologists recommend smoking marijuana rather than drinking if you are in a stressful situation. These are ancient remedies, alcohol and smoking, and they only started passing laws against them 100 years ago.”
I have always been a Bill Murray fan. The guy is hilarious. Sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders too!
