Review - Cannabis Infused Gourmet Butter Mints By Trike Edibles And Elixirs

When I was growing up, we lived by a restaurant called Los Chiles. I absolutely loved going to eat at Los Chiles. Even though it was just a basic Mexican food place (and has long since gone out of business), for some reason I thought the place was very fancy when I was a small kid. No matter what I ended up eating for dinner, I always looked forward to my favorite part of the night when we got our mints. They were butter mints of various colors, and I would always try to be quick to the dish so

Charges Dropped Against Women Who Was Sexually Assaulted During Marijuana Search

One of the most disgusting stories that I have read about all year is the story of Charneshia Corley, who was sexually assaulted by law enforcement during a search for marijuana. The search didn’t occur in a private room at the police headquarters. It occurred in public view in a Texaco parking lot. I cannot fathom how one human could do that to another human, especially in the name of marijuana prohibition. Charneshia was accused of a traffic violation, and moments later a law enforcement officer is probing her private parts for all to see. That’s absolutely horrific. Below is

Colombia Supreme Court: Cultivating Up To 20 Marijuana Plants Is Not A Crime

The decriminalization of marijuana possession in Colombia occurred awhile ago. Colombia is among a growing number of countries that have decriminalized personal marijuana possession and use. However, cultivation has been a different story. There are a lot of parts of the world that allow consumption and personal possession, but still consider cultivation a crime. Recently the Supreme Court in Colombia ruled that cultivation of up to 20 plants is not a crime. Per Colombia Reports: Colombia’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that growing up to 20 plants of marijuana is not a crime. The possession of small amounts of the drug

NASA Uses LED Grow Lights, Marijuana Growers Should Too

A fascinating story came out earlier this month about NASA astronauts growing their own vegetables in space using LED grow lights and consuming them for the first time ever (I’m a space nerd, sue me). Doing anything in space is very complicated, and I’d imagine that’s especially true for growing plants. And not just growing them, but growing them well enough that they are consumable. Per Space.Com: The collapsible and expandable Veggie unit features a flat panel light bank that includes red, blue and green LEDs for plant growth and observation. Using LED lights in order to grow plants was an idea

Tacoma To Shut Down Most Of Its Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

It’s sad times for safe access in Washington State. After the passage of Senate Bill 5052, more and more medical marijuana dispensaries are getting letters demanding that they cease operations. The latest round of letters have been going out this month in Tacoma, Washington where the city is demanding that almost all of the medical marijuana dispensaries in city limits close down. Per Marijuana Business Daily: The Tacoma City Council made the decision this week to shut down most of the area’s 60-plus unregulated dispensaries, with officials expressing concern about the proliferation of such businesses, according to the News Tribune.

Marijuana Industry Recruiter Reveals How To Apply For Marijuana Jobs

With the legalization of cannabis in several states throughout the U.S., a viable commercial market has risen out of an industry which once operated entirely in the shadows. As investors and entrepreneurs pursue profits in the new legal industry, employment opportunities have begun to open up for everyday citizens as well. In their latest podcast, Ganjapreneur has interviewed David Murét of Viridian Staffing, a Washington-based recruiting agency working to connect employers with job-seekers in the cannabis industry, about the emergence of these cannabis careers and the people who are seeking them out. Viridian has been hired by companies to find

The Women Grow Portland Chapter Summer Social Was A Smashing Success

Most Friday nights I don’t do much. I work a forty hour a week cubicle job and dedicate about that same amount of time blogging, so when it gets to Friday night, I like to do as little as possible. But last night (Friday) was special. I took my wife to the Women Grow Portland Chapter summer social event. It was my wife’s first time ever attending a cannabis industry event, and it’s safe to say that her mind was blown away by how fun and amazing the event was. On the hour or so drive back to our home

How Much Does A Marijuana Blunt Roller Job Pay In The Music Industry?

I have lived my entire life in Oregon, and have always loved music. That has made life tougher for me compared to other people that live in larger states that have more of a ‘music scene.’ There are not a ton of high profile music events in Oregon, which is not to say that we don’t have great music here, because we do, but we don’t have music events on the same level as a state like California. As an Oregonian I would travel to California from time to time for some huge music festivals, each of which had dozens

Valid Signatures Are Needed To Put Medical Marijuana On The Idaho Ballot

A few years ago I posted an article describing how scary of a place Idaho is when you are a marijuana consumer. I still feel that way. Most of my family on one side currently lives in Idaho, and some of the stories they tell me are downright sad and frightening. A lot of them use marijuana for medical purposes, and are fully aware what would happen if they were ever caught doing so. They would serve jail time, pay a hefty fine, and have their lives ruined in many ways, all for consuming a plant that has proven medical
