    Mary Jane Rathbun, on first glance, was just your average grandma. With the requisite greying hair, thick spectacles, and a comfy cardigan vest, she certainly looked the part. But upon closer inspection, you might also notice a clenched fist in one hand, a plate of brownies in another, and ironed onto her vest, a single marijuana leaf patch, one of her signature accessories.

    She went by the name "Brownie Mary."

    [H]er famous pot brownies actually started out as a side hustle.

    It's worth mentioning here that Rathbun isn't credited with popularizing pot brownies (and it's impossible to know who "invented" them). It's widely agreed that this honor belongs to Alice B. Toklas, who not only palled around with famous early 20th-century artists and writers like Picasso, Matisse, and Hemingway, but was also poet Gertrude Stein's life partner. In 1954, Toklas published her eponymous cookbook, which contained a recipe for "Haschich Fudge."

    The Average Cost of Marijuana by State
    The Average Cost of Marijuana by State - Oxford Treatment Center

    Marijuana is a relatively commonly used substance in the United States. According to federal government estimates, 22.2 million Americans have used it in the past month and many start using it in their adolescent years. Furthermore, many states have legalized the use of the substance at some level over the past few years.

    Some, such as New Mexico and New York, have it legalized only for medical use, while others, such as California and Vermont, have enacted laws permitting recreational use by state citizens.

    Because the use of this substance is so widespread, we decided to take a closer look at how the cost varies across U.S. states. We used a widely-cited national price directory to compile the average price of high- and medium-quality marijuana for each state.

    We looked at the price for two amounts: one ounce and one “joint” (as defined by a U.S. HHS study). Our results show a notable difference among states based on their legalization status — read on for all of the findings.

    I didn't realize how good I have it. I use Cannasense since I'm in an non-legalized state. With the member discount and the full ounce discount, I pay $260 per ounce. They have a selection of 17-20 different strains at any given time.

    Sixty-five years after he smoked his first joint, Willie Nelson is America’s most legendary stoner and a walking testament to the power of weed. It may have even saved his life.

    Willie Nelson is sitting on a couch at his home, a modest cabin that overlooks his 700 acres of gorgeous Texas Hill Country, when he reaches into his sweatshirt and produces a small, square vaporizer, takes a hit and exhales slowly. “Wanna puff?” he asks.

    Nelson’s wife, Annie, setting down a cup of coffee on a DVD case working as a coaster in front of him, speaks up. “Careful with that, babe,” she says. “You have to sing tonight.”

    Nelson nods and puts it away. He turns 86 this spring and has a history of emphysema, so Annie, who’s been with Willie for 33 years, tries to get him to look out for his lungs, especially on show days. This can be a problem. “He’s super-generous,” she says, “and if there’s somebody around, he’ll want to offer it and do it with them to make them feel comfortable.”

    Nelson says he stays high “pretty much all the time.” (“At least I wait 10 minutes in the morning,” Keith Richards has said.) His routine, Annie says, is to “take a couple of hits off the vape and then, an hour or two later, he might want a piece of chocolate. That keeps it going. So not a ton [of pot] . . . but he is Willie Nelson.” Annie recently bought Nelson an expensive version of a gravity bong — a fixture of high school house parties, which can shoot an entire bowl of weed into your lungs in one hit. “You can use ice water, which helps cool it off,” Annie says. “And no paper really helps.”

    In addition to being the world’s most legendary country artist, Willie Nelson might also be the world’s most legendary stoner. Before Snoop or Cheech and Chong or Woody Harrelson, there was Willie. He has been jailed for weed, and made into a punchline for weed. But look at him now: Still playing 100 shows a year, still writing songs, still curious about the world. “I’m kind of the canary in the mine, if people are wondering what happens if you smoke that shit a long time,” he says. “You know, if I start jerking or shaking or something, don’t give me no more weed. But as long as I’m all right . . .”

    Lawmakers on Tuesday dropped much-awaited legislation that would establish a board tasked with top-to-bottom regulatory authority over the marijuana industry — a promise made by Gov. Steve Sisolak.

    The 160-page omnibus pot bill, introduced in the Assembly as AB533, plans to place almost all of the responsibility for overseeing Nevada’s burgeoning pot industry under the thumb of a new, five-member Cannabis Compliance Board with regulatory authority and an associated advisory panel, the Cannabis Advisory Commission. The board, like its model, Nevada’s gold-standard Gaming Control Board, will be responsible for everything from issuing licenses to meting out punishment when businesses deviate from established rules.

    There’s an article on the high times website linking cannabis use to hormonal imbalances , does anyone know if this has been proven yet?

    I have been a heavy cannabis user for 20 years and have also been a fat emotional wreck for 20 years so could there be some cause and effect there?

    Connecticut is also very close. I'm guessing by the end of the year.

    An association between weed and the dead turns out to have been established long before the 1960s and far beyond a certain ur-band’s stomping grounds in San Francisco.

    Researchers have identified strains of cannabis burned in mortuary rituals as early as 500 B.C., deep in the Pamir mountains in western China, according to a new study published Wednesday. The residue had chemical signatures indicating high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the plant’s most psychoactive, or mood-altering, compound.

    Has anyone here used the clear choice sub-solution synthetic urine?

    IDK about that brand but I use synthetic urine all the time. The one I use is like $18 bucks at a local headshop. Ive passed 3-4 10 panel drug screens using it. if you get it too hot, just put your thumb over the temp gauge strip and swirl for a few seconds while blowing on it, gently of course. If it isnt hot enough, do the same thing except dont blow on it. The nurse will see the temp within range and wont question it.

    See the reason I ask about the sub-solution is cus it comes with the instant heat activator. I could be randomly drug tested at any part of the day on any given day. So the heat pads don’t work and i’d Need something that gets the urine up to temp immediately. Thanks for the other tips though.
