Marijuana Edibles Booming

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 25:    on July 25, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously voted to ban storefront medical marijuana dispensaries and to order them to close or face legal action. The council also voted to instruct staff to draw up a separate ordinance for consideration in about three months that might allow dispensaries that existed before a 2007 moratorium on new dispensaries to continue to operate. It is estimated that Los Angeles has about one thousand such facilities. The ban does not prevent patients or cooperatives of two or three people to grow their own in small amounts. Californians voted to legalize medical cannabis use in 1996, clashing with federal drug laws. The state Supreme Court is expected to consider ruling on whether cities can regulate and ban dispensaries.    (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Move over, pot brownies.

The proliferation of marijuana edibles for both medical and recreational purposes is giving rise to a cottage industry. Cookbooks, classes and vendors are spreading information on ways to make candies, infused olive oils and more.

Many pot users turn to edibles because they don’t like to inhale or smell the smoke or just want variety or a longer lasting, more intense high. For many people who are sick or in pain, some edibles can deliver a longer-lasting therapeutic dose that doesn’t give them a high.

Education about proper dosing has become a priority at dispensaries and cooking classes after at least one death and a handful of hospital visits have been linked to consuming too much of an edible.
