Growing, smoking and consuming cannabis is totally legal in Colorado, as long as you have a valid medical reason and a Medical Marijuana License endorsed by a doctor. Dispensaries are everywhere, on just about every block in the city. In the tiny town of Nederland near where I live there are more and more dispensaries cropping up every month. My favourite is by far Grateful Meds. They really care about their patients, they have a great range including rares, edibles, sodas and really hook their regulars up very generously. I chose them to celebrate after having just got my edibles license and will never forget that special day. I love Grateful Meds and will always stick with them.
I just watched a great clip about the MMJ scene in Denver on the John Stewart Show (archived) which spawned this post - check it out:
Belover, best friend, favourite Connect-4 opponent, I am so proud of you, your selfless compassion, your endless strength. In case you were wondering, and I know you are, we all miss you like crazy! It aches like a bellyempty. I'm beyond excited you're coming home tomorrow! I'll tell Annie and Yorba the happy news tonight before we fall asleep. They have been pining for you non stop. I have too. :@x
You're coming home to heart-squeezing hugs, endless puppy cuddles and a budding garden full of new promise. I'm here to support you in everything. It's all I have ever wanted to do since I met you.
The minute you want something for your sake, you are restless until you get it. Once you get it, you are still not really happy because you don't want to lose it. If you do not get it, you feel anger, hatred and enmity.
But if your want is not for your sake, you don't worry about the results. Eliminate selfishness from your life. The minute you decide to lead a selfless life, eternal happiness is yours.
~ Swami Satchidananda
Sorrow is nothing but what you borrow. The cause of our suffering is our wrong approach, our greed, attachment, clinging to things. The more attached you are results in more suffering. Nobody on earth can make us suffer. Suffering is caused by our own attitude and our own ignorance.
We think that by acquiring things we can be happy and ultimately, these same things are what make us unhappy. Detachment keeps your mind calm and serene. The moment you show attachment, you put tension in the mind.

Did you know, FRANCIS CRICK, the Nobel Prize-winning father of modern genetics, was under the influence of LSD when he first deduced the double-helix structure of DNA nearly 50 years ago? (more...)
Not being able to afford it shouldn't stop you from travel. 5 Ways To Travel More With Less
The past half-year or so I've been learning this one main lesson it seems. Letting go. People, things, expectations, anything I tend to set my mind to. And I have a mind that sets fast and hard to things. "You're so balls to the wall about everything", Joseph once put it. I'm finding that even when it seems like all the odds are against me, or I've had a terrible string of bad luck, that everything seems to work its self out, a little better than before. But only if I let go and let things just work themselves out. (more...)
Gorgeous. I LOVE the underwater aquariumness of it all. And how its like an island. I wonder though, what do they do with all the sewage? I really hope its not going to be like adding more waste dumping cruise ships to the ocean. And I suppose transporting supplies, people and waste back and forth uses up unnecessary fuel. However, I think these could be put to great use as fully autonomous, sustainable community pods in the ocean. Reminds me a little of those amazing high-capacity community buildings in Sim City... I can't remember what those were called. I would LOVE to live on one. But I imagine being surrounded by plants, friends and children, not in 5 star, poop in the ocean luxury all the time.
Great find Kenna!
