Here in Oakland, a legal framework for the local interest and growth in Cannabusiness went on the books in 2004. Arriving 8 years after the passage of the Compassionate Care Act (1996), passage of Measure Z by electorate vote eased the conflict between local law enforcement and medical marijuana providers (startups, by the way).

Empowerment, Dignity and Understanding (E-D-U) Ending Crime

An alternative in presenting this idea: Empowered/Educated And Dignified, Understanding People (‘EAD UP) To End Crime  ​ You’ll see National Geographic is compiling the genetic information for human genomic research. I, personally, believe we do not know enough about ourselves as humans yet to refuse to contribute “our information” to such a project. I, also, am certain, not everyone agrees with me.

Residing Fully In Your Power 1

A flyer with all types of starting-up-solar service providers and tools. From SEMI and Intersolar’s SEMICON WEST event.  As far as I can tell, this is an area where the technology is NOT final.
