The announcement marks the third time in as many weeks the state Department of Health has introduced changes to the program, which launched last January as a result of New York’s Compassionate Care Act.
For patients, the new changes should improve access, while strengthening business for registered organizations authorized to make and sell the drug. Dr. Howard Zucker, state health commissioner, called them “major steps forward” for the program.
“These enhancements will continue to strengthen the program and improve patient access by making medical marijuana available to patients suffering from chronic pain and making more products available at dispensing facilities across the state,” he said. [Read more at New York Business Journal]

It’s time to get crafty with Master Bong and turn an ordinary egg into an egg pipe. Although a little bit of mess comes with the process, it’s easier to make an egg pipe than you may think. In fact, it’s the perfect activity for a rainy day or when you just have nothing better to do. Therefore, it’s time to check out the video below and start making your own.
During another fun-filled episode with Master Bong, he is ready to teach you the art of making an egg pipe. Not only is it easy to make, but you also only need a couple of tools to get the job done. So, if you’re ready to get your hands a little messy, pull out those eggs and get to moving.
First, find a small and sharp object, like a nail or thumb tack, to hit the top of the egg and create your bowl. Be very gentle, though, or you’ll wind up with yolk everywhere.
Then, poke a hole for your mouthpiece and another for the carb on the back of the egg.
Next, carefully widen your carb and mouthpiece with a utility tool of some sort. In the video, Master Bong does both over a bowl to avoid spilling egg insides.
After, it’s time to blow out the yolk into the bowl and then rinse out the remains with water. Of course, this is the fun and messy part, so be warned.
Finally, you get to customize your egg. Master Bong, in particular, uses a sticker, but you can also dye it if you want to get creative. When you’re done, just pack your bud, fire that baby up, and enjoy! Don’t forget to check out the video below for more fun and visual instructions.

The goal is to cut down on complaints that Colorado’s liberal allowances for growing pot without a license has created a thriving network of illegal growers. Colorado allows medical pot patients to grow up to 99 plants, far beyond other marijuana states, and it also allows recreational users to group their allotted six plants into massive co-ops, entire greenhouses of pot that aren’t tracked or taxed.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says the state’s generous pot allowances make it almost impossible for cops to tell legitimate growers from black-market fronts, and he is calling for a several new laws to crack down. Proposals include a ban on group recreational pot grows and new paperwork requirements for people who grow medical pot. [Read more at Denver Post]
