Below is an easy and quick recipe for making delicious, and potent, cannabis-infused fudge.
4 cups sugar
½ cup cannabutter
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
16 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow fluff
1 teaspoon vanilla
[Editor's Note: You can make this recipe vegan by making the cannabutter with SmartBalance or Earth Balance vegan butter (or coconut oil), and replacing the evaporated milk with 8-ounces of coconut milk.]
Line 13×9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Lightly butter foil. Set aside.
Combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk in heavy 4-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 17-20 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Then continue cooking, stirring constantly, 15-17 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F.
Remove from heat. Gradually stir in chocolate until melted. Stir in marshmallow fluff until well mixed. Stir vanilla.
Spread fudge into prepared pan. Cool completely [an hour or two]. Cover; refrigerate. Remove fudge from pan using foil ends. Cut into 1-inch squares.
Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California, will chair a blue ribbon committee tasked with studying marijuana legalization in the state. This was announced at a joint press conference held this morning with the ACLU of California.
The panel will “engage in a multi-year research effort to help voters and policy makers as they consider proposals to enact a strict tax and regulation scheme that will enable California to benefit from billions of dollars of potential revenue annually while protecting the health and safety of our children and communities.”
Joining Newsom on the panel will be “leading legal, academic and policy experts from across the state and nation.”
The ACLU also released new polling data which revealed that 65% of Californians support legalizing and regulating marijuana, while only 32% were opposed and 3% undecided. You can view the full poll results here.
“This development is just a further illustration of how the debate over marijuana legalization has moved from the fringe into the mainstream,” stated NORML Communications Director Erik Altieri, “An overwhelming majority of Californians are ready to legalize and regulate marijuana and it is encouraging to see key figures within the state move to address the issue in a forward thinking and serious manner. With a voter initiative likely in 2016, this new survey data also confirms that the people of California are ready to move forward to end their state’s marijuana prohibition, with or without state legislators.”
NORML will keep you updated as this effort moves forward.
