We had an unexpected visitor last night at the facility,” California Highway Patrol’s Donner Pass division wrote on Facebook on Nov. 18. Police in California got a surprise when a bear stood up on two legs, opened the door to a facility and then wandered in as if it worked there. The footage shows the bear step into the commercial vehicle enforcement facility in Truckee, near Lake Tahoe, then drop down to all fours. It wanders past some vending machines and out of camera range. A few moments later, the bear casually strolls back out. Two police officers follow.  “Our bear friend made a return visit,” the department wrote. On Saturday, the bear was back, caught on camera in the facility’s parking lot. Bears will seek to avoid confrontation with humans. If encountered, always leave them an escape route.

 Bears in the area are searching for food for up to 20 hours per day as they prepare for hibernation, the United States Forest Service noted on its website. Bears often hibernate in large hollow trees 40 to 50 feet off the ground. Because bears (and other animals) are attracted to anything edible or scented, improper storage of human food and other scented items and improper disposal of refuse is a leading cause of human-bear conflict. Store food in bear-proof canisters or bear-proof lockers if provided. Bears are omnivores. A typical wild bear diet consists of berries, plants, nuts, roots, honey, honeycomb, insects, larvae, carrion and small mammals. As winter approaches, bears will forage for food storing enough fat to sustain them through hibernation. Bears that are accustomed to people can become too bold and lose their fear of humans. To avoid this behavior, do not let bears become habituated to human sources of food. U.S. Forest Service

How Edibles Are Shedding Their Weed Stigma In The Food World

The crow here for c4ocradio.com

At one point in cannabis culture history, mastering the art of baking the perfect weed brownie was considered a rite of passage, marijuana-infused foods are evolving far beyond pot brownies. The THC-infused world of eats has evolved far beyond brownies, cookies and admittedly impressive dispensary snacks and moved into the culinary space. Thanks to the development of medical marijuana programs and the decriminalization and legalization of recreational cannabis in multiple states. Cannabis cuisine has been gaining popularity among casual consumers and connoisseurs alike, but now it’s being welcomed into the mainstream as never before. When Martha Stewart wants in, you know it’s gone mainstream. Media and entertainment have been pushing the narrative of marijuana normalcy into the homes of more conventional audiences with shows like Vice’s “Bong Appetit” and VH1’s “Snoop and Martha’s Potluck Dinner Party.”

Addict Addiction Cannabinol Cannabis Desig

Chefs around the country are embracing cannabis and elevating the lowly edible to the same sensory realm as high-end cuisine by curating pop-up dinners, supper clubs and private events where cannabis can shine. Cat Cora, the first female “Iron Chef” who recently graced the cover of Cannabis Now Magazine, and an advocate for cannabis, is speaking out about infusing foods with marijuana. “I’m a big proponent for olive oil. I’m Greek, obviously, but the Mediterranean diet as we know it is the healthiest diet on the planet. So [I’m adding cannabis olive oil to] anything that I can infuse.” “I’m learning a lot about usage, dosage, things like that,” she told the magazine in April. For example, she said she’s put cannabis olive oil in vinaigrette for salads. “I have so many amazing ideas and a lot of things that I really want to apply it to, “I want to create products around cannabis with the right partner and the right situation.” Bringing cannabis into the culinary conversation is important because it allows people to open their minds to something they may have been against because they haven’t understood its potential. For now, you won’t find restaurants that offer full-service cannabis dining even in states like California or Colorado.
