Cedella Marley has released a new book Cooking With Herb which is being hailed as the holy grail to cannabis enthusiasts.While the legalization of medical marijuana is increasing in most countries around the world, Jamaica, the land which is often associated with the herb has been playing catch up.The work by Bob Marley’s eldest daughter, was culled from the family’s dishes on which she was raised in Jamaica. The dishes included are: buttered banana fritters, beet burgers with avocado and jerk-fried onions, quinoa with curry cashews and coconut. The work contains 75 recipes using marijuana by-products.Sprinkled with PatoisThe book is also sprinkled with pinches of wisdom on Jamaican culture and slang (“irie” means “feel good,” “wah gwaan” is “what’s up,” and “a suh mi duh mi ting” means “this is how I do my thing”).Correct dosageIt also, quite responsibly, includes the correct dosage and usage of the cannabis plant referred to simply as “herb.” In fact, every recipe can be re-created with or without CannaOil and CannaButter. This, like all other ingredients in this simple-to-follow book, are exactly what you think they are: THC-infused coconut oil and butter, also known as the bit that will get you high.In her book, Cedella Marley also offers a slew of at-home and easy-to-make concoctions passed down from her mother and great-aunt; which she says benefits glowing skin, strong hair and fewer wrinkles. And, as the book points out, they contain ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen, such as bananas, brown sugar, and mayonnaise.
ANAHEIM >> If such a thing as a must-win interleague game on Sept. 9 even exists, the Angels won one Wednesday.Their 3-2 win over the Dodgers before 42,799 at Angel Stadium salvaged the final game of the Freeway Series and allowed them to momentarily pull a game closer to the Texas Rangers.The Rangers (73-65), who lost Wednesday, currently lead the Angels (70-69) by 3 1/2 games in the race for the American League’s second wild-card position. The Dodgers maintained their 8 1/2-game lead over the San Francisco Giants atop the National League West. The game was tied 2-2 when Kole Calhoun led off the eighth inning with a double to right field off Dodgers pitcher Luis Avilan (2-5). He went to third base when the ball caromed off Andre Ethier’s glove, an error on the Dodgers’ right fielder.Pedro Baez relieved Avilan and struck out Mike Trout with an impressive 99-mph fastball, but Albert Pujols followed with a single up the middle, driving in Calhoun with the game-winning run.“I was trying to do my job and get the ball up, try and hit a sacrifice fly, something deep,” Pujols said. “I was lucky enough to get a base hit back up through the middle. In that situation, with one out, infield in, I think I have enough experience to calm myself and just get a good pitch to hit and try to do some damage. Or hit a sacrifice fly. Try not to do too much, just let the pitcher provide the power, especially when the guy is throwing 98- and 100-mph sinker.”The Angels had lost their last eight games against the Dodgers, their longest head-to-head losing streak since the Freeway Series began.Making his second major league start of the season, Dodgers right-hander Joe Wieland subbed in for Mat Latos as an 11th-hour replacement. He allowed two runs in four innings: the first on back-to-back doubles by Erick Aybar and David Freese in the second inning, the second on a triple by Taylor Featherston and a sacrifice fly by Calhoun in the third. “I thought I was going to be more rusty,” said Wieland, who hadn’t pitched a game at any level since Aug. 26. “My arm felt great. I thought toward the end maybe I was going to lose some in the tank, but I came in after that fourth (inning) and I told (pitching coach Rick Honeycutt) I’m good.“They told me, though, this was the plan.”Wieland said he was first told Tuesday night that he might get the assignment. The official word came down when he arrived at Angel Stadium on Wednesday.His opponent was Angels ace Garrett Richards — an unfair matchup on paper, but one that tilted in Wieland’s favor quickly. Richards allowed a home run to Dodgers rookie Scott Schebler on his first pitch of the game, then settled in masterfully. He didn’t allow another hit until Corey Seager led off the fifth inning with a single. Seager was then picked off base when first baseman C.J. Cron held the gloved ball on Seager’s leg when it came off the bag.In 7 2/3 innings, Richards allowed four hits, walked three batters and struck out 11 — tying his career high.“That was a tremendous effort from Garrett,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “Early in the game he was trying to find his release point. Once he found it, he was spinning it well. Everything came together. …. Not many mistakes tonight from Garrett after the first couple of innings.”The Dodgers trailed 2-1 in the eighth inning when Joc Pederson greeted Richards with a leadoff double to left field. Austin Barnes bunted Pederson to third, giving Schebler and Chase Utley a chance to cash in with one out.Richards struck out Schebler swinging on a vicious curveball. Utley must have been looking for the curve on Richards’ 1-2 pitch; he got it and stroked an RBI double down the left-field line, tying the game 2-2. “He wanted the ball to start the eighth inning,” Scioscia said of Richards. “It’s hot. … That’s what a lead dog in the rotation does, what Garrett did tonight. You go out there and you stop a streak. You shut down a team that’s been scoring a lot of runs. They have a great offense over there.”Jose Alvarez (4-3) got the Angels out of the eighth inning without incurring further damage, striking out Adrian Gonzalez on a fastball just below the knees for the final out. He was the Angels’ pitcher of record despite throwing only four pitches. Huston Street tossed a scoreless ninth inning for his 33rd save. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
