Rebecca King North Jersey Record Published 5:20 AM EDT Jun 11, 2019 Matt Borgersen, the 25-year-old executive chef at Westwood’s Caffe Anello, has fond memories of a creamy brie he enjoyed at a dining event in Colorado. Instead of honey, it was served with an agave nectar infused with THC — the psychoactive compound of marijuana. "I can't wait until I can start making similar dishes in New Jersey, if and when recreational marijuana is legalized," said Borgersen.

Henry McMaster said Tuesday he's not ready to sue the Trump administration over offshore drilling, contending there's still time to negotiate for a South Carolina exemption.The comment came on the same day that a coalition of coastal towns and interests did file suit in Charleston, saying the initial process of searching for reserves is harmful to all sorts of fish and marine wildlife.McMaster told The Post and Courier he plans to stick with his tactic of trying to reason with the president and convince Trump that drilling off South Carolina's coast isn't practical."Nothing is off the table," he said. "We will do whatever it takes to protect the people and property and welfare of our coast. It is beautiful. It is pristine. And once broken, once harmed, it would be difficult if not impossible to get it back."McMaster went on to say "but lawsuits are a last resort. I have made our position very clear. I think the entire administration is fully aware."Meanwhile, U.S. Rep-elect Joe … [Read more...] about SC Gov. McMaster not ready to sue Trump administration over offshore drilling
