Virgin, Richard Branson and Marijuana. Comedy or farce?

Between 2017-2018 California and Colorado both have seen a decrease in opioid overdose deaths by 27%. This is a 3x greater annual decrease in overdose deaths than 2016 reports a 9% decrease in opioid overdose deaths in states with recreational cannabis. Never before have we seen a decrease in opiate overdose deaths in this… country. Now, states with legalized cannabis are seeing a dramatic decrease in opioid overdose deaths. 

New Jersey arrested over 35,000 people for marijuana in 2017.⬇????New Jersey citizens are paying over $55,000 a year to keep ONE person in jail for possessing marijuana. The state of New Jersey has run out of funding for substance abuse treatment at the beginning of this month, May 2018 Just five months into the calendar year and #NJ state funding for substance abuse treatment is gone. We still arrest citizens for marijuana on a daily basis costing $55,000 a year to hold just one inmate. California saved over 30 million dollars for college grants, generated by the proceeds of cannabis sales in 2017 alone. The legal cannabis industry of California produced over 27 million dollars for the curriculum of the California state board of education in 2017. 

Integrating responsible cannabis and substance abuse education into our children’s school system curriculum is necessary! With only five dispensaries available to over 20,000 NJ patients and counting, a delivery system would only make sense, more sensibly a home grow provision in our opinion. Over 100 patients are being added a day and we have five facilities to treat them. People are dying every day from our epidemics, we know cannabis saves, yet New Jersey continues to slow pedal its way to expand access to our patients.

The series chronicles the life of Jed Perry, a 15-year-old boy who moves to Northern California along with his father shortly after the death of his mother. After enrolling at the prestigious Evergreen Academy, Jed finds out the school was formerly for girls, and recently became co-ed. Along with Jed, only two other boys attend the school, Philip Steffan and Cary Baston. When Miranda Mills, a free-spirited Sophomore, takes an interest in Jed she helps the boys gain acceptance with a stunt at the annual Evergreen talent show. Jed, the only one of the boys who openly admits to be a virgin, is naturally selected and his friendship with Kate, another suspected virgin, develops. 

Cary, who has been flaunting his sexual experience, becomes the target of Stella’s campaign to remove the boys from school. The boys discover that the school has a history of expelling girls with an unwholesome reputation, so they decide to track them down in the hopes of gleaning some information that might save Cary’s place at Evergreen. Jed instantly forms a strong dislike of him, due to his good looks and the lust he provokes in the entire student body, including Miranda and Kate. Jed is picked by Joely, an out lesbian, who begins to show a strong attraction to him. As a school dance approaches, a rift is formed in the boys’ friendship when Phil starts to pursue Kate, much to Jed’s chagrin. 

With only the supervision of Greg Tillman, the drug counselor who they called to help with Stella, the gang spend the night on the Evergreen campus, where Miranda asks Jed to sleep with her, Phil and Kate bond in the school kitchens, and Cary comes to Stella’s rescue. Having finally decided on Kate, Jed goes to extreme lengths to try to get her back.

The Gardener’s Gripe Book: Abby Adams: 0019628036476: Amazon.com: Books

Seventeen chapters and about 240 deckle-edged, heavy paper pages are provided in this well-produced 1995 book. Her writing is light-hearted, but she knows her soils, her weevils, her seeds, weeds, and gardener’s deeds. Some are just part of gardening: heat, cold, rain, drought, winds, a plague of locusts. About these gardeners can do little else than work with bell, book, and candle on curses, exhortations, and incantations. Some gripes come from inexperience: one learns from experience to plant lettuces early in successive seedings to avoid a glut that has the gardener pushing salad on the unwary and learns also to pluck the zucchini while ’tis in its’ tender youth. 

Some of Adams’ gripes derive from over-ambition: sow a quarter acre of garden & one also can have a life. For these gripes and other sources of blood, sweat, and tears, Adams has wry comments, amusing observations, and nuggets of advice. Inexperienced gardeners may find the book useful & charming, particularly with the admirable Jeff Seaver’s delightful illustrations that match the writing like tomatoes and basil. Abby Adams offers a fine further-readings list of 46 books including Jane Austen, van Gogh, and White. Readers might yearn to share a bottle of good vino with gardening writer whose personal readings are so diverse! 

At used book prices this a worthy value that can be an affordable treat; my copy which arrived in fine condition cost only a few cents. Most gardeners will recognize and chuckle at the troubles and triumphs that can be associated with trowels, tribbles, and dibbles.
