Arizona parents sue state to treat son, 5, with marijuana extracts

TUCSON -- The parents of a 5-year-old Arizona boy are suing the state, seeking to treat their son’s seizure disorder with marijuana extracts under the state’s medical marijuana law.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed the suit on behalf of Jennifer and Jacob Welton, parents of young Zander. The Weltons, of Mesa, want to force the state to include marijuana extracts, such as oil resins, as legal substances under a law approved three years ago by voters.
The boy’s severe epilepsy is one symptom of a rare, congenital condition. This year, Arizona Department of Health Services officials approved a medical marijuana application for Zander, issuing the child a medical marijuana patient identification card.
However, some state officials have suggested that only the marijuana plant — not its extract — is legal for medicinal purposes, ACLU officials said.
Fearing criminal prosecution, the couple stopped giving Zander the extract even though it had successfully treated his disorder, the complaint stated.
State officials targeted in the lawsuit, including Gov. Jan Brewer and the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, declined to comment.
“When Arizona’s voters said 'yes' to legalizing medical marijuana for seriously ill patients in 2010, they certainly meant the plant as well as extracts from the plant,” ACLU attorney Emma Andersson said in a statement. “Casting a cloud of criminality over medical marijuana extracts is wrong and cruel.”
Dank Tanks Review
Category: Product reviews | Posted on Thu, October, 31st 2013 by THCFinder
This past weekend I was able to try out the Tristick Portable Vaporizer Pen with a Dank Tank attachment. First I have been smoking everyday for 10+ years. I have always been a fan of Water Pipes (Bongs) I have tried Vaporizers, Pipes, Bubbler’s, Volcanoes and Gravity Bongs, but always preferred my water pipe. So I finally decided to try these Dank Tanks. I opened up the carrying case which is a small, protective container that looks like a sunglass case that holds the vaporizer and all its accessories. The instructions said to charge the battery before your first use, so I used the USB charger and it only took around 50 minutes to fully charge. The lithium ion battery in the Tristick Pen is the latest, most powerful battery to come in a portable vaporizer pen. It charges within an hour, and is said, with regular daily use can last up to one week.
I was surprised at how easy the Dank Tank is to use. Simply screw on one of the attachment with your medicine, then push the power button and inhale, simple right? I used one of the preloaded liquid cannabis Dank Tanks with my pen. Now since I smoke out of bongs I figured I could handle a large hit. I could not, I coughed pretty hard my first hit but by the 3rd time I had figured out how much to inhale to get a good sized hit that didn’t make me cough.
The first thing I noticed was the taste, it didn’t taste like normal. It was very sweet and fruity; it reminded me of Juicy Fruit Gum. The high was strong but not to heavy to where I was falling asleep. The hits were so smooth and the liquid cannabis was so much more potent. The high last awhile too, I found myself taking a couple of hits every hour or two and being good. The pen is about the size of a sharpie and is very sturdy so I wasn’t afraid of it breaking like a glass pipe in my pocket. I was ably to carry the pen around all day with me and use it when I needed it. It looks similar to an E-Cigarette and the smell is not that strong at all. Each hit there is a little bit of smoke when I exhale nowhere near the amount of when Rip a bong but I am still able to take some monster hits. For the first time in years I actually went the whole day without using my bong. I think I have found a permanent replacement for smoking. I have been enjoying the Dank Tank all weekend and it still looks like it is full.
Now I have heard of other Vaporizers leaking before but with the Tristicks anti-leak system there have been no leaks that I have seen while using the pen.
The Dank Tank is simply amazing. I can’t recommend this product enough. It is top of the line and has instantly become my favorite way to smoke.
DankTanks.net you gotta try them!

With a musical performance from HMJ’s very own @GoSemi, food trucks, raffles, costume contests, movie screenings, fortune tellers, face paint and DJ Big Kush Jay will be spinning on the turn table all evening this should be a night to remember, if you don't get too high. Dressing up for the holiday is appreciated but not required.
The 420 Treehouse is a posh BYOW bar in Midtown/Culver City area of Los Angeles. The Treehouse comes fully equipped with stoner essentials like couches, large TV’s (including a projector), bong rentals, and healthy snacks in the vending machines. You are not going to find snickers or doritos here. Only organic stuff like plantain chips, coconut water, Mojo Clif bars, and trail mix combos are here and in my opinion, thats whats up. I’ve moved to a point in my life where I can really appreciate that type of food.
You do NOT want to miss this.

By making marijuana bread, you can store it and use it whenever simply by freezing it. The bread will allow you to make things such as dinner rolls, wraps, and even pizza. I really wanted to share the pizza recipe but figured that the bread should be explained first.
What You'll Need;
3 Tblsp Of Cannabutter (In 1/2" Pieces)
1 1/2 Cups Water
2 Tsp Active Dry Yeast
1/4 Nonfat Dry Milk
1 1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Finely Crushed Marijuana
3 Tsp Granulated Sugar
4 Cups Bread Flower or All Purpose Flour
The first step is to proof the yeast that you're using in warm water with 1/8 tsp of sugar mixed in with equal water to the yeast. Give it ten minutes. You should see the yeast releasing large bubbles around the edges. Separately, in a bowl, mix together the dry milk, the sugar, the flour, and the marijuana together. Use your hands, as this won't crush up the flour. It'll keep the mixture light and fluffy.
In the center of the dry ingredients, make a well. Add all of the wet ingredients to the dry mix by pouring it in to the well. Mix everything together with your hands, punching the dough for 15 minutes. It should begin to form a smooth ball. If you deem the mixture too wet and sticky, you can add extra flour. If it's too firm, slowly add water.
After you've successfully achieved the right consistency, cover the top of the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm place. The dough should rise to at least twice it's size. This recipe makes two pounds so be sure that you have a good sized bowl that will fit the dough once it rises.
If you're making an actual bread, you can keep reading. If not, you can store your bread dough in the freezer for future use. This is the bread that you'll use for pizza if you decide to make it!
If you're planning on continuing to make a loaf of marijuana bread, you can either add your dough to a loaf pan or break it up in to pieces to make rolls. After putting your dough in whatever pan you choose, cover it and allow it to rise again about double in size. Take your marijuana butter and spread it over the top of the bread. Cook the loaf at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the crust turns golden brown.
