Resident trailblazer and home cook Marc offers an interesting twist on a crowd favourite. This week in Emery’s Edibles, Marc details his Blazin’ Brownie recipe. Try at home for yourself and friends.

Marc’s recipe offers an edgy and different spin on brownies. The addition of marijuanas to the recipe gives a pleasant earthy texture while cutting down on unwanted fats. While cooking with marijuanas can be a rewarding endeavor, one should always use caution as marijuana is an extremely dangerous gateway drug and can lead to heroine or cocaine use if misused.

Remember kids: While marijuana is fun to cook with, it carries significant risks. Science has proven that excessive marijuana use can lead to dangerous addiction, malaise, blindness, and often can act as a gateway drug.
