It’s 4/20! What Does That Mean?
Pot culture’s ‘420’ history has seeds in California, Grateful Dead Friday, April 20 is a sort of holiday for marijuana advocates and enthusiasts, but the ties between “420” and pot culture grew not from a date, but a time. The mythbusters and fact-checkers at Snopes.com trace the origins of 420 to a small cadre of pot-smoking, treasure-hunting high schoolers in 1971 San Rafael, California, who called themselves the “Waldos” because they hung out near a wall. The five would tell each other “4:20 Louis” to meet at 4:20 p.m. near a campus statue of Louis Pasteur before they’d set off in search of a fabled, abandoned marijuana field ready to harvest. As with the best quest stories, though, the journey was the most important part, and though they never found the crop they eventually turned “420” into their shorthand for hanging out, going on “safaris” and smoking, according to two former Waldos interviewed last year by Time Magazine .
How About Some POSITIVE Opioid News?
Opioid Prescriptions Dropped In Every State Last Year The number of prescriptions of opioid painkillers dropped 10.2% in 2017, according to the IQVIA Institute, an arm of the clinical research giant that collects data on pharmaceutical prescriptions from retail pharmacies. Prescriptions of high-potency opiates dropped even more – 16.1%. And when a measure called morphine milligram equivalents, which measures both the number of prescriptions and the strength of the drugs provided, the resulting 12% drop is the largest in 25 years, IQVIA says. “We’re seeing declines across every state,” says Murray Aitken, executive director of the IQVIA Institute. “The states that have the highest per capita consumption are also the states with the highest decline.” But Aitken also offers a cautionary note: though opioid prescriptions have been dropping since 2011, they are still about six times higher than they were in 1992.
Special Guest – Josh Hendrix!
Born and raised in the Bluegrass State and a University of Kentucky alumnus, Mr. Hendrix relocatedback to Central Kentucky in 2014 on a mission to help rebuild the US hemp industry. Seeing a need to bring farmers, processors, manufacturers and supporters of the industry together, Mr. Hendrix founded the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association that summer and still serves on the Board of Directors. He also became an active member of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Council where he now serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors. In 2015 he created and became President of Hendrix Hemp, a licensed hemp producer that manages hemp cultivation on his family’s, Mayflower Farm, in Mount Sterling, KY. In early 2016 Mr. Hendrix was appointed to the Technical Advisory Council for the National Hemp Association and accepted a role on the Senior Advisory Board of the institutional trading platform for hemp, Seed CX. Currently Mr. Hendrix serves as the Director of Business Development – Domestic Production for CV Sciences, Inc. where he works with numerous universities, farmers, businesses, and organizations to help facilitate the infrastructure necessary to establish a modern domestic supply chain for hemp in the United States.
RULE 14 AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE HEMP FARMING ACT OF 2018 You may have heard that yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used a little-known Senate procedure called Rule 14 that bypasses the traditional committee process and brings S. 2667 (the Hemp Farming Act of 2018) directly to the full Senate. Here’s an article that discusses this procedure. This certainly is a positive development. Rule 14 is a relatively common maneuver by the Leader for bills that he strongly supports, and it allows him to exercise greater control over its movement. However, contrary to some of the media coverage and social media chatter, this is not a sign that S.2667 will be passed or even debated on the floor imminently. We are still early in the process, and much work needs to be done to develop the appropriate level of support that will enable Leader McConnell to secure final passage. That’s where you come in. In the coming days, we will be launching our online program to empower you to help us get S.2667 (and its House companion bill, H.R. 5485) across the finish line. We are going to make it easy for you to craft and send a personalized message to your Members of Congress to urge them to co-sponsor and ultimately vote for passage of these critical bills.

SPRING CLEANING THE LIVER Spring has sprung! Tis the season for rebirth and regeneration. Spring is ruled by the wood element which is associated with the liver and its complementary organ, the gallbladder. What better time to reset and rejuvenate body, mind, and spirit than through the liver, an organ known to regenerate itself if a portion is surgically removed? “It was at one time considered the seat of life; hence its name— liver, the thing we live with.” -Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary, Tales and Memoirs As the body’s largest filter and gland, the liver is a detox powerhouse responsible for more than 500 (possibly 5000) functions. Your liver filters 1 liter of blood every minute from the digestive tract before it flows to the rest of the body. It holds about one pint of blood (13% of the body’s blood) at any given moment. It detoxifies, nourishes, replenishes, and stores blood. It also energizes the blood by releasing stored sugar (glycogen) as glucose.

Huge drug (pharma) money changes hands in high-level financial deals—why? These are notes on money-musical-chairs among drug companies. Big-time money. Clues as to why there is such a tidal wave of cash: One: Consolidation, of course. Fewer giant companies, who have greater control over the market, are too big to fail, and have more lobbying power with governments. Two: The companies are making deals left and right to temporarily give stockholders and prospective investors the impression that “something good” is happening, while concealing the fact that numerous new drugs in the testing pipeline are failing to produce beneficial results, and are unsafe. Sleight of hand. Three: The companies are making very favorable loan deals with banks, enabling them to buy out other drug firms. Before the loan repayments are completed, the companies will have sold themselves (and the debt) to bigger fish.
Gene therapy and the trans-human agenda; Cure disease or alter humans? “Researchers say they’re well on the way to curing thousands of diseases by tinkering with human genes. But is that true? Or is their effort really part of a long-range agenda to keep experimenting in the dark, through grotesque trial and error, to alter humans and make them into a new species?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport) With the onrush of new gene-editing techniques, the medical research establishment is beating an old drum: they will cure many human diseases by making genetic changes. First of all, the new editing techniques have unknown consequences. A simple snip of a gene can bring on ripples in the patient’s overall genetic structure. This fact spells danger. Second, and here is the old drum: there are a number of diseases caused by a problem with a single gene—one gene, one disease. Therefore, a precise edit of the offending gene will cure the disease. But is this one-gene one-disease hypothesis actually true? If so, we should already have seen these cures. But we haven’t.
