Brooklyn-based marijuana website launches

- A new digital publication launched Wednesday. The Fresh Toast is aimed at readers who want to know more about medical and recreational marijuana.

JJ McKay is the founder and publisher. He says the online magazine, which has an office in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, is trying to appeal to mainstream cannabis users not traditionally served by so-called stoner magazines.

The publication also has a directory where you can buy medical marijuana with a doctor's prescription. He insists the site is not pushing pot smoking, which is still illegal in most states. McKay says the publication doesn't take a position on advocating for pot use; instead it is education people on it.

About 6,000 people have already checked out the fresh toast website. Its founders expect that number to grow.
