    I consumed a 25mg Magic Hat Lime Spritzer at noon with my lunch. Will post shameless product review for Tap in a bit.

    Anyway, after lunch I carved up a large cooked animal with a sharp knife, and handled/moved boiling oil - both without the need for medical attention. My rest pulse is currently 62 and my breathing is normal. I don't feel massively fucked up like RootSkier predicts for the amount I ingested.

    Now, I'm 6' and 220. I eat half of a homemade ~60mg brownie an hour before lifts spin and the other half two hours later. After several vape hits on the way up...

    A guy I used to work with ate three of my 60mg brownies and was not affected at all. He's like 6'5" and 180lbs with the metabolism of a hummingbird.

    Point being - not everyone gets massively fucked up for half a day like RootSkier on 25mg

    Product Review

    Bend's own Magic Number is Oregon’s premier craft brewer of cannabis beverages. Using all-natural ingredients and only the finest full spectrum cannabis extract, they deliver innovative, delicious, effective and value-conscious liquid edibles to discerning consumers in Oregon

    Today I drank one of their newest offerings - a 25MG Live Resin Lime Spritzer - with my lunch of hummus, taboulleh, grape leaves and tzatzliki, followed by the last of our Girl Scout Samoa cookies.

    This spritzer uses Alpine Glow, a sativa forward hybrid strain. Their Berry flavor uses an indica strain. I felt quite alert after consuming, and was able to complete high risk tasks such as transporting boiling canna oil and breaking down a smoked turkey without fear of medical mishap.

    The lime spritzer is light and bubbly, without sweetness and just a hint of citrus. The garlic, lemon, mint and vegetables in the mezza were enhanced by the light flavors of this delightful beverage.

    Sadly, the spritzer didn't pair so well with the heavy chocolate, caramel and coconut flavors of the Samoas. Worse yet, Ms TBS was not pleased that I ate the last of the cookies and now the sale if over.

    Anyway, I recommend Magic Number Live Resin Spritzers to pair with light and delicate foods, and to enjoy while spending a hot afternoon in the shade reading or examining all of the leaves on your outdoor plant for pests.

    Huh, I love sublinguals. I like to dial in the dosage via the dropper. Micro dose is so easy.

    Update to Virginia legalization. Possession and cultivation moved way up to 7/1, this year. Still a few years until we see retail, but fast tracking possession is a pretty big step in the right direction.

    Don't worry about going to the store because when the store opens, cutbacks on growing could occur. Nevada pulled a quick one re: cultivation for med patients. They had a question on the form asking if you had grown in NV pre-2014. A self-incriminating question that had to be answered yes or you couldn't grow going forward. That's so fukking weird.

    Real short and incomplete update on legalization legislation in Connecticut:
    A few days ago a proposed bill passed through one committee and into the
    finance committee for further review.
    This bill as proposed will set potency limits on product and restrict the right
    to grow your own to those that hold "medical" cards.
    Changes to the legislation occur as it goes through the various committees
    before a finale vote is taken.
    As the Democratic party holds a super majority in both the house and senate
    and the governors office, any legislation that makes it way through committees
    to the floor for a finale vote is pretty much a slam dunk.

    Gov. Ned Lamont (D) was asked about the status of cannabis reform in Connecticut at a press conference, and he noted that a bill to legalize marijuana for adult use that he’s backing cleared the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday after being amended by the panel. That said, as was made clear by lawmakers at that hearing, the governor said the legislation as it currently stands is not the final product.
    “I think there’s going to be a couple of more iterations on this,” Lamont said.

    The continued restrictions on home grow of cannabis just go to show that for
    states it is all about the tax revenue and nothing about personal liberty.

    Lamont included revenue from cannabis sales in his two-year budget.
    Lamont is proposing a 6.35% sales and use tax and a 9.5% excise tax. The proposal also gives municipalities the option of levying their own 3% excise tax.

    I should add that these sales and excise taxes would be on top of taxes imposed on the product itself. i.e. $1.50 per gram of flower, etc..

    I get my cartridges in those little plastic cylinders with a pop top. I have been saving them because the seem too useful to discard (and I don't think I can put them in the recycling), but I have no use for them. Anyone have ideas?

    This is not my stash but these are what I am talking about.

    Definitely has me curious about growing some plants out on the back 40.
    That said, I’m decades out of my stoner days. Wouldn’t even know where to start.

    My county govt is voting on Monday to ban rec sales for the first 5 years and will reassess at that point. They specifically stated that they think the whole thing is a money grab by the state and they don't need the money. Their approach is going to be to raise other local taxes to make up for what they don't get from weed sales, they'll watch the neighboring counties and see how much tax revenue is being generated then figure out which taxes to raise to equal that. The sheriff's office has also said they will be very strictly adhering to the timeline for legal growing at home and will prosecute to the fullest extent anybody caught growing before so it looks like at least 3 years until I can which sux.

    Fkn ass backwards bullshit, we don't even have a brewery because they came up with some shit that they can't be within 5 miles of a church which only left residential zoned areas to put one.

    Count yourself lucky that they're allowing home-growing at all.

    I lived in a town that's 25 miles outside of Seattle for 3 years, and they had a similar ban on pot shops. However, they did bend over backwards to encourage bars to open up in the community. There's still a whole lot of anti-legalization sentiment out there, but I can only assume a lot of it comes from people who don't vote.

    My ass-backwards county *still* won't allow rec sales. And it has been 7 goddam years. Fortunately, Denver county is *really* close.

    One of the articles I read a councilperson said something to the effect of 'they got it right in 1938 so who are we to think we know better' and the big reason it's right is because it brings "those people" into our community.

    The grow your own part has too many nuances, it may not ever come to pass. We'll see.

    So I've been giving edibles a try recently, and thus far I've been disappointed.

    Consuming more than 20mg at a time doesn't make sense economically, but a 20mg dose doesn't seem to generate a buzz, either. FWIW, I smoke most days, usually 1-2 bowls per day in the evening (about 0.5-0.75g of flower), don't consume any concentrates and weigh around 155 pounds.

    It would be nice to find a viable alternative to smoking. Maybe I need to go back to making my own edibles with homemade butter.

    In Washington the answer was to buy syringes of RSO and put a drop on whatever you felt like eating, but that stuff is non-existent in my current market.

    I'm not a fan of the stank associated with making butter/baking edibles at home, but I'm not a fan of the stank of most weed products. Hell, even when I fire up my vaporizer, I plug it into an extension cord and stand out in the yard with it so my house doesn't stink.
