Why Colorado Tokers Love Mandarin Temple

I'm probably never going to learn how to speak Mandarin unless our future Chinese overlords say so, but I've been smoking a ton of it lately. Mandarin Cookies, Mandarin Sunset and Mandarin Dreams have all been in season at dispensaries for the better part of three years now, and there's no sign of them departing any time soon. There have been a couple of additions to the family from the same breeder that gave us all the other Mandarin varieties, but the new kids have yet to be knighted.

How does smoking marijuana affect academic performance? Two researchers explain how it can alter more than just moods

college graduation

Research has consistently shown that  people report using marijuana  in order to feel the high, experience enhanced feelings, increase social connections or cope with certain feelings and moods.

Among young adults  early in the pandemic , there were modest reductions in motivations for using marijuana for celebratory reasons and slight increases toward using marijuana because of boredom, possibly due to initial physical distancing mandates and stay-at-home orders. However, among the main reasons for using, both before the pandemic and during as well, are feelings of enjoyment or the high associated with marijuana use. We do not yet know the impact of these shifting motivations for using marijuana or whether patterns seen during the pandemic will continue after.

Stevie Van Zandt Launches Pre-Rolled Cannabis Line

Stevie Van Zandt

Stevie Van Zandt, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, is encouraging folks to roll one up. The veteran rocker, author and actor, launches his own line of pre-rolled joints, bearing the name of his wellness brand Little Steven’s Underground Apothecary. Van Zandt’s gear is part of a holistic approach to both heal, help and educate. Many U.S. states have decriminalized or legalized medical or recreational marijuana, though cannabis remains illegal at a federal level.

That’s just not right, reckons Van Zandt.

table discussion

 Representatives from local, county and tribal government met last week to discuss strategies for regulating recreational marijuana sales which are set to begin Jan. 1, 2022. Montana voters approved the sale of recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older during the 2020 election. HB 701, passed in the 2021 legislative session, places oversight with the Department of Revenue, “provides for a local-option marijuana excise tax” and a requirement for local government approval.

Czech Government Triples THC Hemp Limit To 1% — Will Rest Of World Follow?

cannabis bud

Europe is beginning to take its cannabis industry seriously, and it is such a rewarding time to experience this movement. We are used to hearing cannabis news from countries like Germany, Spain but not the Czech Republic. So this information is quite informative as it shows the speed at which the marijuana sector is thriving.

This move is expected to increase calls for more marijuana reforms for all European countries. Czech President Milos Zeman signed a law in September that permits industrial hemp cultivated in the country to contain THC up to 1.0%. This prescribed level exceeds the present limit set by the European Parliament.

Yet another criminal mastermind tries to dispose of cannabis cache right in front of cop

cannabis packages

An Australian driver initially was pulled over for dangerous driving, but later was charged for that and obstructing the police by ripping open bags of illegal drugs and trying to dump them before an officer could arrest him. 

The 29-year-old driver was observed in his truck travelling in a dangerous manner about midday on Oct. 9, notes a statement from the Queensland Police.

Directed by the highway patrol officer to pull over, the driver did so but failed to comply with the officer’s instruction to remain seated inside the truck. The police then saw the man try to conceal some property under his seat.

While being arrested for non-compliance, the man “allegedly obstructed police by attempting to tear open packets of drugs on the roadside,” notes the statement.

Marijuana Handed Out To Trick-Or-Treaters On Halloween: Truth Or Myth?

jack-O-lanterns

Every year around Halloween time, rumors will start to creep up about “marijuana-laced” Halloween candy. Should parents be worried about there being truth behind the rumors?

Some older stories stem from the 1950s that people would “heat pennies on skillets and put them into the hands of trick-or-treaters.” This eventually turned into stories about “arsenic and pins” ending up in children’s candy in the 1960s.

This could be where the fear of marijuana-laced candy came from, but these instances can now be considered ancient Halloween sadism, according to Joel Best, the nation’s top researcher on Halloween candy contamination.

Commercial cannabis growing operations cut into industrial real estate supply

The thriving and consistently crowded industrial real estate market has recently had to accommodate an increasing number of cannabis growing and processing plants in the municipalities that allow them.

However, in many cases, cannabis construction in these municipalities has led to the multi-million-dollar rehabilitation of obsolete industrial facilities.

Chicago-based Cresco Labs LLC had its first harvest two weeks ago at its newly opened, 110,000-square-foot facility at 210 Oliver Drive in Marshall, the former site of a Win Schuler and Campbell Soup Co. factory.

What ever happened to the promise of pot cafes in Alaska?

The only business in Alaska where you can watch a football game inside, order a smoothie and spark up a joint is in a former Chili’s restaurant in Fairbanks.

“We have groups of people coming in to watch basketball, watch rugby, watch the Olympic wrestling team, and smoke a doobie,” said Brandon Emmett, one of the owners of Good Titrations, which operates the state’s lone cannabis cafe.

And it is a cafe: The lounge offers a full coffee and restaurant menu, and “just so happens to sell marijuana,” Emmett said.
