So you have lung cancer and can't smoke...

Some recipes for cooking with Mary (courtesy Erowid)

Hot Buttered Bhang
"In a saucepan, melt half a cube (1/8 pound) of butter or ghee.
Crumble a good handful of regular ganja (1/3 - 1/2 ounce).
Stir the grass into the molten butter.
Continue stirring over medium heat for one minute.
While it is hot or sizzling, add 8 ounces of vodka. Be cautious that the hot butter does not make the mixture spatter. It is best to pour in the vodka swiftly.
Continue to boil for 30 seconds or more, stirring all the while. A pinch or two of powdered cardamom seed may be added during the boiling. . . . "
After boiling as much as desired, strain the liquids. Press the mash in a strainer with the back of a spoon to remove all the juices. Discard mash or boil it again in fresh vodka to salvage more materials. Sweeten to taste with honey if wanted. Pour the liquid into 4-ounce wine glasses. . . . Serves two. "only two!!"
This recipe is not only an efficient method of extracting the active principles from marijuana, and an excellent medium for assimilation (alcohol, butter and honey), but it also has a delicious and satisfying flavor. It is reminiscent of hot chocolate, but is much more pleasant to drink.
It is one of the most swiftly absorbed cannabis concoctions.

Hash brownies
Ok, I normally use hash, but you could use grass by grinding it up real fine (Get rid of those stems as they have a harder taste).

Rules: Warn your guests to wait one hour after the first brownie until they have a second one. The buzz from eating is different than smoking it, and even the heaviest smokers may have a hard time recognizing the effects at first.

200g butter (margarine won't work)
200g unsweetened chocolate
250g sugar
4 eggs
200g flour
splash vanilla extract
100g dark chocolate (regular candy type)

over low heat, melt butter in saucepan. once butter is just slightly bubbling, mix in ground up hash and stir for 5-10 minutes, taking the pan off the heat every now and then to keep the butter from steaming too much (the magic actually steams out too I think). melt unsweetened chocolate into butter, stirring constantly. when all chocolat is melted totally, splash a few drops of vanilla in. If you can hear the vanilla sink to the bottom and "sizzle", the the mix is hot enough.
So, remove from heat. If it doesn't sizzle, then your low setting is low enough. I usually just turn off the heat, but leave the pan on the burner (for a ceramic stove). stir in the sugar little by little (so it doesn't clump) once all the sugar is mixed in, beat the eggs and mix them in.
Add the flour (stir in first so it doesn't blow all around), and use an electric mixer on LOW (it's a waste to splash magic all over the kitchen) until the whole bit is smooth and there are no lumps or pockets of flour. break dark chocolate into nickel size chunks, and stir in.
Pour mix into shallow pan (2-3cm), and pop in medium heat oven for about 30-40min.
NOTE: I never time the puppies, I just look at them and know.
A toothpick will come out with just a little brown color when they are done.

Alcohol Preparation

One 750ml bottle of grain alcohol (vodka works too but the higher the proof the better the absorption) take anywhere from 7-28 grams of MJ and chop it up real good, stems and all. In my opinion using lower grade MJ is better for consumption than for smoking.
Its also more cost effective. Once all the MJ has been chopped, drink or pour off a couple shots (so as not to overflow) of the grain and funnel the MJ into the bottle.
This next step is the most difficult.
Go to your calender and mark off a minimum of 3 weeks from the day you poured the MJ into the bottle and then place the bottle in a closet and forget about it.
When the time has come you can strain the MJ out or leave it in, it is all preference. By this point your grain should be a dark green color almost blackish.
Start with a 1/4 or 1/2 shot (depending on amount used initially) and mix it with some juice or whatever your favorite beverage is. Effects can be felt as soon as 5-10 minutes.

Be careful with this recipe! Always start low.

Alcohol Preparation Notes:
Effects of cannabis come on more rapidly in liquid/alcohol preparations than with food-based oral cannabis preparations.

You govern a kingdom by normal rules
You fight a war by exceptional moves
But you win the world by letting alone,
How do I know that this is so?
By what is within me!
The more taboo and inhibitions there are in the world,
The poorer the people become.
The sharper the weapons the people possess,
The greater confusion reigns in the realm.
The more clever and crafty the men,
The oftener strange things happen.
The more articulate the laws and ordinances,
The more robbers and thieves arise.
Tao Teh Ching #57, Lao Tzu
