If you’re a fan of the Food Network show Chopped, prepare yourself for a cannabis-infused spinoff as the network prepares to launch Chopped 420
For those not familiar with the show Chopped, it’s about contestants who compete by creating a meal with a basket of mystery ingredients.
Their meals are then judged by some of the industry’s top chefs and celebrities
the winner wins a $10,000 prize
But for Chopped 420, chefs are expected to incorporate cannabis in their creations
Can you imagine the difficulty in navigating infusing food with cannabis on a whim?
It’s definitely a tricky endeavor knowing how to add just the right amount of THC for an enjoyable experience.
The number of reality cannabis cooking shows that have popped up over the last few years are certainly indicative of how much the industry has grown and how many people are beginning to welcome it.
The show is set to debut on 4/20 this year!
Next in news,
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is set to finally sign off on recreational cannabis legislation very soon.
But none of the legislation is to go into effect until July 2024 once the legal framework is established. A situation criticized by many.
But according to reports, Gov. Northam wants to make amendments to the measure to expedite the start date
Ideally he’d like for possession to be legalized beginning on July 1 of this year
In an interview, he stated
“I personally don’t think we should be arresting or penalizing somebody for something we’re getting ready to legalize…I plan to place a number of amendments in front of the legislature and hopefully we’ll be able to move those forward.”
Currently, possession of up to 1 oz. of cannabis is decriminalized. So, it would make sense that having at least that much be legal.
We look forward to seeing what happens for Virginia.
Brockton, Massachusetts has opened its first-ever recreational dispensary.
But it’s even more special as it’s the first-ever woman-owned, Black-owned dispensary in the legal market on the East Coast.
According to the President and CEO of the Massachusetts Cannabis Association stated, “It shows that we’re trying to, actually that we’re achieving what we say we want to do, which is to build an inclusive industry in Massachusetts.”
30-year-old owner Vanessa Jean-Baptiste indicated that she and her team are proud of their accomplishments with their dispensary Legal Greens and hope to be an inspiration for others to pursue their dreams.
And we wish them nothing but the best in their endeavors!
