(SALEM, Ore.) - More people every day are discovering the delights of cannabis in many types, shapes, tastes and consistencies. Cannabis products also vary in strength, and it is integral to their success that consumers know what they are buying.
The “bud” is the most vaunted of all parts of the cannabis plant. The bud (aka “flower” or “herb”) is where the THC content is found, and therefore the most valuable and most sought after. The second favorite? OIL produced from the buds.

Let’s look at those major systems and what we need to do to make them safer for us.
We are all breathing in a lot of air, but what is in that air? Is it helping or hindering your health?
(SALEM, Ore.) - If you listen to the EPA, you will have heard that the environment we have indoors is up to five times as toxic as that outdoors. In fact, in some instances, the measurements of air inside buildings has been as much as 100 times as polluted as outside air.
Now, consider that most of our time is spent inside, be it in our homes, offices, or schools. That means that most of the toxins we inhale are inside.
Oregon is a very appealing place to live, and the safety of its cities only adds to the draw.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Ask someone about Oregon, and they'll probably paint you a rosy picture of cheery, shorts-wearing hikers hustling up a mountain, munching on granola, and collecting banana peels for compost.
Maybe that's because compared to many Midwestern locales, Oregon's lush forests, rushing rivers, and towering mountains really do seem like another world.
Is there some sort of connection that we all should be aware of?
(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - Someone may want to inform Senator McCaskill that her recent call for an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic was already launched by the U.S. Finance Committee in 2012 and as of 2017 there is still no report.
So why would McCaskill demand action on an epidemic killing in the thousands every year when she is aware the waters are not uncharted?
The names of all involved will not be released at this time.

Untied [sic] Airlines is one more step in America's drift to fascism. It's not too late to stop it.
(Pender Island, British Columbia) - There is a deeper aspect that has been completely overlooked. You’ve got the complete story here first.
The flight was NOT overbooked as everyone is reporting. This is the first mistake. All the paying passengers had seats. United wanted to put crew members on the flight who had to be in Louisville to work the next day. This was the result of complete mismanagement on the part of UAL.
Update on the fighting at Ein al-Hilwe Palestinian camp in Lebanon
(Ein el Helweh Camp, Saida, Lebanon) - It’s half a century overdue for Lebanon to grant Palestinian refugees, now the fourth post-Nakba generation, the most elementary civil rights to work and home ownership.
Both fundamental rights are mandated by international law and enjoyed by every refugee on our planet. Sauf Lebanon.
The question is when this shift will make a difference, not if.

War is immoral, illogical, and criminal and has no “good side” or “bad side”.
(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - The attack on Syria by the United States while illegal per international law (not sanctioned by the UN Security Council and opposed by Russia and China) comes to remind as all of five basic facts of geopolitics:
1: US Presidents no matter how “unconventional” must always obey the rules set for them. Trump came to office opposing intervention in Syria and is now directly siding with the “rebels” and has accepted the 1990s neocon strategy of regime changes across Western Asia that are supposed to benefit "Israel".
Like it or not, his ardent supporters just don’t seem to care if this POTUS is truthful.
(SAN FRANCISCO) - Trump lies for the pure pleasure of it; he just can't help himself. Often his lies are difficult to fight, destructive in their effects, and almost impossible to correct if they resonate strongly enough with his true believers, which Trump’s mostly do.
His political incorrectness is what appeals to many of his supporters.
There has never been a reasonable expectation of online privacy, and there never will be.
(NEW YORK, New York) - Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have always had the right to use your data as they see fit, within a few Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) parameters. This has not changed.
Ten countries that could disappear in the next twenty years...
(PENDER ISLAND, British Columbia) - Thomas Edsel writes in the NYT that Trump is so ignorant, he is not even aware of his own ignorance. Edsel concludes his column with:
Given the magnitude of the problems that lie ahead and the embedded contradictions that make them difficult to solve, we face precisely the kind of world President Trump is least equipped for, mentally and morally.

A $9 billion or 13 percent reduction in funding could disrupt housing for "the less fortunate".
(WALTHAM, MA (PRWEB)) - Rapid change continues to move throughout the Federal Government and with recent leaks of budget cuts to key departments, such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development, change will certainly accelerate.
Adam Almeida, President and CEO of TenantScreeningUSA.com opines: “Potential budget cuts inside HUD could signal a key change in direction and, perhaps, enforcement of key Guidance’s such as those released last year regarding the fair, legal, and lawful use of criminal background records as part of tenant screening.”
With great will, witnesses were able to remove her from under the log.
