  • Each month the ladies of our town hold a meeting of sorts where they gather to discuss the events and concerns that can affect them and their children.  Items of discussion can range from local petty crime to concerns over new development and construction; however, much of the conversation concerns the ways the homeowners and businesses can help make the community a more “livable” neighborhood for our children and our elders.  In the spring there are occasions when many people have trouble enjoying the pleasant atmosphere because of their allergies.  So this group adopted a program where people with serious allergies could attend their meetings and enjoy indoor activities, instead of being left out due to their inability to really deal with spores and pollen. The leaders of these meetings are also ladies who are active in other fields.  Many are members of key political organizations; others are businesswomen who manage some key stores.  One of our lawyers, a woman particularly fond of wearing clothes she buys from Ann Taylor, is a popular member who provides much insight and advice since she had once been a member of the local county commission.   Another member produces accessories whose clientele comes from the performing arts – her products are often seen worn by singers and actors who perform at local venues.  After learning of the concerns parents of allergic children have, both have decided to pursue ways to address the needs for better food labeling at farmer’s markets, and local festivals, food truck rodeos and fairs.

  • “Cannabis” is a plant that is banned by many countries because it is known by its use in drug production. It has been deemed appropriate in some European countries to be trained in state control for experimental purposes only. CNN’s medical news clearly shows the benefits of marijuana and cheap dab rigs in medical use, with the documentary “Weed”, the head reporter Sanjay Gupta’s. In Gupta’s documentary, he lists the main unknown benefits of marijuana as follows: Use in the Treatment of Glucocorticopathy: It can produce effective results when used in the treatment of Glucoside which causes damage to the eye nerves, pressure on the eye’s eye, and loss of vision. According to a study conducted by the International Eye Institute in the 1970s, it has been found that glucocomic individuals have decreased after using the pressurized marijuana of the eye roll. This research has led to the conclusion that marijuana slows down the progression of Glucose disease and prevents vision loss. Use in controlling epileptic seizures: In a 2003 study conducted at the University of Virginia, synthetic marijuana was given to experimental mice with epilepsy, and it was observed that these mice did not experience epileptic seizures for 10 hours after taking the drug. Tetrahydrocannabinol, an active ingredient in marijuana, acts on brain cells to regulate the feeling of arousal and control the feeling of relaxation, thus providing a visible reduction in epileptic seizures. The content of marijuana prevents the spread of cancer: According to a statement made by the California Pacific Medical Center in 2007, marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol inhibits cancerous cancer from spreading to other cells. According to a paper published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapy, cancer cells are multiplying using the ID-1 gene, but the cannabidiol substance stops the spread of cancer by disabling the ID-1 gene.
