This list has long been Dr. Leveque's favorite "go to" for canna-resources!

Remaining activities must be completed in sequence and are weather-dependent.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Despite a project timeline setback early on due to delayed delivery of the large supporting arches, the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge is on track to open to the public in April.

No one can help every Syrian child during the continuing carnage in their beloved country. But everyone can have the honor of fulfilling the solemn duty of each of us--to help someone.
(DAMASCUS, Syria) - Ten-year old Ghina Wadi had another of what hopefully will be a leg saving operation last Friday. She has spent the past seven months often in unbearable pain, which for the first month was periodically relieved for only approximately 15 minutes at a time- by heavy injections of morphine.
Ghina was shot by a sniper on 8/2/2016 on the main street in Madaya at the Abdel Majed checkpoint when she was on her way to buy medicine for her mother, Sahar. Her accompanying seven-year-old sister Nagham was also injured in her hand and arm.

Look at the evidence provided and judge for yourself
(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - We in occupied Palestine continue to be guardedly optimistic even after watching the Kafkaesque political "plays" being performed to confuse the public and keep them in the dark and keep them fighting each other while the RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER.
Remember to follow the money. But what we common people need to do is refuse the baiting, join hands, and think of the environment, sustainability, hope, love, kindness to one another (while yes exposing the myths and challenging the elites).
