On April 1st as promised by the Federal Liberal Party and the Ontario Conservatives, Ontario's first retail cannabis stores are open for business. Sadly only 10 of 25 stores opened on April 1st. That's a whopping $225000 in fines against the 15 stores that didn't make the April 1st deadline. Second deadline and a second $15000 fine is April 15. Given the confusion around how licenses would be awarded and the late draw that only gave the winners roughly 4 weeks to finalize leases, and setup their stores it's not surprising that less than 50% made the opening date.
In Ottawa 3 of 3 stores were ready for the official launch date and all were very busy on day one.
Now the countdown begins for Edibles. October 17, 2019.
Honey has loads of health benefits if you are buying local honey that hasn't been overly processed before bottling. Honey is great on toast, in tea, and as a replacement for sugar as a sweetener in many recipes. It can also be infused with cannabis for a little THC twist.
Pasta is a staple in many homes and served almost weekly so having a few variations to keep things interesting is a great idea. This recipe is a great base as it can be tweaked endlessly to suit your cravings or what you have on hand.
Precooked (leftover) chicken is used in this version, you can substitute with shrimp, lobster, pulled pork, turkey meat, ground beef/chicken/turkey. You can use a roast but it works best with something cooked low and slow like pepperoncini beef, or barbacoa beef.
Who doesn't love popcorn? In this version we're making Potcorn by adding everyone's favotire ingredient pot. There are a few options here, you can pop your kernels in infused oil or you can add it after the kernals have been popped. Depending on the power of your oil you amy want to do both.
If using cannabutter add after popping, same if you are using distalites.
In the wake of reports that the U.S. federal government plans to apply lifetime visitation bans on Canadians who use marijuana as well as those who work for or even just invest in cannabis businesses, a member of Congress is pressing the Trump administration for details on how it plans to enforce that policy.
What's the deal USA? First off you've mislead the American people for over 100 years regarding Cannabis. I guess the pursuit of the almighty dollar makes it okay to vilify a plant that actually helps people. In the pursuit of profits for pharmaceutical companies it's okay to imprison hundreds of otherwise law abiding citizens. It's okay to ignore science, research and outright lie to everyone.
