If New Jersey legalizes marijuana, this is what it could look like

If New Jersey legalizes marijuana, this is what it could look like

by Alan Tu @ WHYY

Clearly, Joe Lindsey loves his job.

At the High Country Healing dispensary in Silverthorne, Colorado, he pulls out plastic tubs of pungent marijuana buds, talking about the attributes and aromas of each. He points out the citrus smell of one variety and the notes of bubblegum in another. As the store’s lead “bud tender,” Lindsey has a passion for the product.

“I get paid for this,” he says with an almost manic grin.

It’s a job that could get him arrested in other places around the country, but in Colorado, he’s got a state license. The state amended its constitution in 2012, becoming the first state allowing adults to possess and use marijuana . Since then, the cannabis business has exploded.

It’s now a billion-dollar industry in Colorado, and in 2016 there were a total of 698 pot stores in the state, which was triple the number of Starbucks.

New Jersey could become one of the next states to legalize marijuana. State Sen. Nicholas Scutari  has introduced a bill to legalize the retail sale and possession of marijuana. If it is approved, Gov. Phil Murphy has said he would sign it.

Most expect New Jersey, like other states, to follow Colorado’s example on everything from licensing to regulation of marijuana concentrates and edibles. That could mean that, by 2019, customers could walk into a dispensary in Atlantic City or Egg Harbor Township – which already has a medical marijuana dispensary – and buy an one-eighth ounce of heavily taxed, high-potency marijuana or a childproof container of intoxicating cookies.

To get a sense of what legal marijuana sales could look like in New Jersey, we went to Colorado to see firsthand how a regulated pot shop operates.

Welcome to the high country

After years of legal sales in Colorado, marijuana dispensaries have become part of the landscape there. An informal poll of several Colorado residents saw enthusiasm from marijuana users and near indifference from those who abstain.

No one under 21 is allowed in a dispensary. Typically, there’s a lobby area, often with T-shirts and other merchandise for sale. A potential customer must present a photo ID before being allowed into a separate room where the drug is sold.

Just a few customers are allowed in that room at once.

At High Country Healing’s Silverthorne location, Lindsey talks with customers about the attributes of each strain of marijuana. Each smells and looks a little different, and each is said to offer different effects. The jars of buds are color coded and arranged so that the heavier, more intense strains — the ones that will keep you stuck on the couch staring at your hand — are on the left. Varieties promising a more energetic experience are ranged on the right.

The cost at the recreational part of the dispensary is $16.17 a gram, $55.12 for one-eighth ounce, or $355.36 for an ounce. There’s a hefty 28 percent tax on the sale of the recreational product, compared to the regular 7 percent sales tax for those with a medical marijuana card. That option is only open to Colorado residents with a doctor’s recommendation.

In the summer, about 80 percent of the customer in the dispensary are locals, according to store manager Joe Pepe. But in the winter, when the ski resorts of Summit County draw thousands to the area and the dispensary is far busier, that percentage flips with 80 percent of the customers visiting from out of state.

It’s a federal crime to bring marijuana across state lines. A sign inside the dispensary states that if you ask advice on how to smuggle your purchase home, the dispensary will not be able to sell you anything. There are limits on how much you can buy: no more than an ounce at a time or its equivalent in other products.

Another dispensary in the region had its license pulled for overselling, Pepe said. He indicated he keeps his operation to the letter of the law.

“I’m the king of compliance,” he said.

It takes about three months to grow a marijuana plant from a clipping to the point that it’s ready to flower. Within two more months, the plant will be fully mature and the dried buds ready for sale..

The marijuana sold at the Silverthorne facility is all grown in the county, and proprietors have recently installed a grow room at the site, giving customers a look at the plants through a plate glass window in the waiting area.

The dispensary also sells pipes, papers and rolled joints, but Pepe sees his customers moving away from smoking because of health concerns.

Expanded menu

“I would say the top growth in the market is in vaping and edibles,” he said. “Those markets are really gaining traction.”

Vaping has grown in popularity over cigarette smoking in recent years, and the same can be said for marijuana. Using a device about the size and shape of a pen — or a larger tabletop version — the user heats the marijuana to an extremely high temperature, literally vaporizing it. The process is also used for marijuana oils and concentrates, such as the extremely potent concentrate known as wax.

This dispensary and others sell a staggering variety of pot-infused products, way beyond those green-tinted brownies your college roommate used to make. Psychoactive ice cream, root beer, olive oil and beef jerky were on display, along with premium chocolate bars, lollipops, tablets, chews and drops.

In the fall, Colorado tightened the rules for marijuana edibles. They must clearly indicate the products contain THC, the chemical that gives users the marijuana high. The edibles cannot be labeled as “candy,” and there cano be no cartoon characters or anything else that would seem to attract children.

“So no gummy bears, no Swedish fish” said Pepe.

Individual pieces are to be stamped with a symbol indicating that it contains cannabis.

Without such labeling, it would be easy to confuse these products with their innocent counterparts. A spike in accidental ingestion of marijuana-laced sweets was reported after legalization, and Children’s Hospital Colorado produced a fact sheet on children and marijuana to help parents recognize accidental intoxication.

Pepe showed off a package of caramel waffles that are made with pot. Once he popped open the required child resistant container, an unmistakable smell wafted through the plastic wrapper: cinnamon.

No marijuana aroma was evident, and Pepe said there is almost no trace of marijuana taste in the 10 small pieces, each containing a single adult dose. The label warned against eating too much, saying it could take hours for the effects to be felt.

Pepe said few of the edibles have any detectable marijuana flavor, at least in the recreational side of the business.

“At this point, if you don’t taste good, you might as well get out of the market,” he said.

Berlin for free – part I

by AwesomeBerlin @ AWESOME BERLIN

AWESOME BERLIN

It is a fact: Berlin is still one of the top budget destinations in Europe. The German capital has a lot to offer with its touching history, diverse neighborhoods, affordable food and accommodation options. Not to mention the infinite nightlife choices. Although prices have consistently risen in the last years (especially for the locals), Berlin has a plethora of activities and attractions that are totally free of charge! So it was only natural that we dedicated some time to give you tips for enjoying Berlin for free!  In fact, there are so many free-of-charge activities that we decided to publish this article in two parts! Make sure to read them both before deciding where to spend your time! Find “Berlin for free – part II” here! Most of the places are more enjoyable in the warmer seasons, when people spend their spare time in the parks and lakes all over the city and take advantage of the late sunsets. However, in the colder months, Berlin offers plenty of nice indoor activities as well. The first and most basic thing you will need is to maintain high levels of nutrients in your body (also known as getting food). And in Berlin you [...]

Berlin’s Best Christmas Markets – 2017

by AwesomeBerlin @ AWESOME BERLIN

AWESOME BERLIN

BERLIN BEST CHRISTMAS MARKETS GUIDE 2017 is out! From the last weekend in November until right after Christmas the city is “inundated” with some of the most magical and enchanting Christmas markets. In fact, there are more than 60 of those throughout the city. Locals gather together to celebrate and get cozy while drinking mulled wine, beer and eating some of the most yummy German street food. Another favorite activity at Christmas Markets is, of course, shopping for hand made Christmas decorations and trinkets. Several vocal and musical groups provide for a fun entertainment program. Not all Christmas markets are alike, so it is totally worth exploring a few during the season. Some of them are more exclusive and posh. Others are very popular and feel almost like Carnival fairs. Some are located in stunning landmarks like Charlottenburg Palace, Gendarmentmarkt Square or in little old neighborhood/village centers. Others take place on city’s open spaces, old factories and squares. The past couple of years has seen a surge of “specialty” Christmas markets and they range from Greek, Japanese, Vegan, you name it. These, even if fun,  tend to feel less “Christmassy” as the traditional ones, so we decided this year to focus on the ones [...]

My goal with this article is to give you a shortlist of where I like to eat these days. These restaurants have proven to deliver delicious food and satisfying experience, CONSISTENTLY. Yes, chefs and staff may have bad days, but I guarantee that these places have way more amazing days than otherwise. You may be disappointed, as I am not going to tell you about the *newest* restaurants in Berlin. Most of the places I am recommending have been around for a while. I catch myself going back and that, I think, is a good sign.

I have also mostly selected restaurants that are not going to break your bank. They range from my trusted Turkish joint, where you can eat for 10 bucks to my favorite mid-range restaurants, where you can get an amazing dinner for around 60-70 Euros. If you [...]
