Customers queue up to place their cannabis orders at Coffeeshop Checkpoint

​A Dutch court fined the owner of the Netherlands’ largest marijuana-dispensing “coffee shop” 10 million euros Thursday, after police seized more than 200 kilograms of cannabis on the premises.

According to the court, the owner of Coffeeshop Checkpoint would have had to pay a larger penalty if it had not been for the role of the local government.
“Checkpoint could not have expanded as much as it did without collaboration from the municipality of Terneuzen,” near the Belgian border, the court said.

Pick Up The Pieces, one of the many “coffee shops” in Amsterdam

​Dutch “coffee shops,” a euphemism for outlets selling cannabis, are in danger, and have announced they are going “on strike” on June 9, the day the Netherlands will hold parliamentary elections.

“The idea behind closing for the day is to encourage all those who like to smoke a joint to get out and vote for the parties which will ensure that coffee shops will not be banned in the Netherlands,” reports Johan van Slooten at Radio Netherlands Worldwide.

Strains that stand the test of time merit proper respect. Seeing a jar of Super Silver Haze gleaming on a dispensary shelf slapped that sentiment into my skull on a gloomy Monday afternoon, just when I needed something to brighten my day.

If you feel like Super Silver Haze has been around for a while, you’re right. The strain rose to popularity in the mid-’90s, reportedly bred by Green House Seeds, the Dutch breeding company also known for its Strain Hunters web series.

Once a rare treat, cannabis-infused edibles ain’t no longer a thang here in Colorado. In fact, they’re a large and growing presence in the legal pot industry, now accounting for around 15 percent of the recreational market share…and that’s still rising, according to several industry studies. Infused-product companies are using tasteless distillate, isolates and water-infusing powders to cook with cannabis, making the possibilities virtually limitless.

Today you can find anything from coffee to beef jerky and Dutch stroopwafels infused with THC and CBD on dispensary shelves in Colorado, and making pot-infused dishes at home has never been more popular. So what’s still sexy about old-school edibles, such as chocolates? We asked Lauren Gockley, chef for award-winning edibles company Coda Signature, about the evolving art of cooking with cannabinoids.

Colorado marijuana extraction company Evolab has partnered with one of Canada’s heavily funded public pot companies, according to a joint announcement from Canadian marijuana firm The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD) and Evolab. The licensing deal will take Denver-based Evolab’s production technology as well as its CBx Sciences brand into Canada after that country implements federal marijuana legalization, which could come as early as August.

Having a presence in Canada also gives Evolab a chance to jump across the Atlantic Ocean, according to Nicole Smith, CEO of Evolab and CBx Sciences. Canada, already a global exporter of the plant’s medical products, will be shipping out even more marijuana products after new businesses open in July, she says, with the potential for Canadian marijuana companies to distribute their products in up to fifteen countries that allow medical THC products — not including America, where medical marijuana is still federally prohibited.

A New York and Netherlands-based biotechnology company focusing on medical cannabis research says they plan to start making pot-infused bubblegum in the Netherlands that they plan to sell internationally.
Axim Biotechnologies, which already makes a product called CanChew that contains CBD, say they will manufacture CanChew and a new product, MedChew, which will contain THC. Officials with the company tell in-PharmaTechnologist.com they are already conducting clinical trials on patients with Multiple Sclerosis as well as inflammatory bowel problems and Crohn’s disease in Amsterdam.

First, it seizes up the brain like an old Chevy being driven at full speed through the desert with no fluids; sending a violent message to the spinal cord that cripples the user in his tracks. Then comes the inability to breath properly, followed by 10-20 seconds of remaining consciousness before the brainstem resembles a rubber chicken bone, sending the person deep inside the hole to the otherside without any chance for survival. This my friends is the fierce course of the wrecking ball known as a heroin overdose, a brown drug so powerful it was once used to by the ancient Egyptians to paralyze camels in an effort to prevent them from biting during intercourse.

Styles P, Sheek Louch, and Jadakiss from The LOX used to blaze blunts with Biggie Smalls while busy writing hits like “It’s All ABout The Benjamins” for Puff Daddy at Bad Boy Records.

Later, the Notorious got killed, and The LOX broke free from their contract via popular uprising by their fans. They joined DMX and the Ruff Ryders, and later went independent by starting D-Block Records.

Today the crew is still together, tougher than ever, and constantly writing, recording, and touring. And Styles P is still an avid proponent of the pot head lifestyle, and marijuana legalization. Here’s what he had to say about vegan edibles, “white people music,” and Sour vs Haze.
