Toke of the Town‘s sister Village Voice Media blog, the Phoenix New Times, is gettin’ nice and ready for implementation of Prop 203, Arizona’s medical marijuana law, with “Baked,” a new series that will appear on New Times’ food blog, Chow Bella.
“There is a stigma associated with marijuana use,” writes “Polly Cooper” (a pseudonym for an accomplished local baker) at New Times. “The lazy video gamer and those damn, dirty hippies, burning one and trying to wax philosophical. There are examples everywhere, and I’m sure everyone knows at least someone who fits a stereotype. The most destructive part of this stigma is that it can prevent those who may benefit from its therapeutic aspects from even asking about it.”
“And for those of you on board, I’m going to tell you how to make concoctions and tinctures, as well as give you some wonderful tips, recipes, and ideas that can help either you or a loved one in pain,” “Cooper” writes. “You never know when the time will come when you are sitting beside your mother, father, aunt, sister, best friend, or lover, watching the meds not work and feeling helpless because there is nothing you can do. This blog’s for you.”
“Cooper” has already shared recipes for pot brownies, cannabutter, and marijuana-infused caramel corn, with more yummy treats on the way.
