How does CBD help depression?

 


Well, it's Humpday! I posted this on Facebook, but I'll share here too. 

Watch the Homecoming King on Netflix, the one-man comedy special with Davis born-and-raised, UCD political science grad Hasan Minhaj. Being a Muslim-American raised in the very white college town of Davis and dealing with traditional Muslim values in his family (he married a Hindu a year ago--not popular in the community). Hilarious, but with a very high degree of social relevance.

I once ran into a law school colleague and said that I loved that she kept her very long hair. She explained to me Sikhism and the belief to not alter your body. In the world of piercings, tattoos, and the like, it was a nice learning moment for me. We have a lot to learn from each other.

CA34 (Los Angeles): As expected, Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez easily won Xavier Bacerra's congressional seat yesterday by 20 points.

The Times's John Myers looks at the current budget debate and that one-party rule doesn't seem to be helping. The Legislature has until June 15 to send a budget to the governor, and of course, the debate is over bail.

I used to be embarrassed going to Kmart in Placentia growing up, for fear of seeing kids I went to school with. Of course, that was ironic, as my mom would point out, as they wouldn't see if their family wasn't shopping there. Last one in California is closing.

As former FBI Director James Comey prepares to testify before Congress this week, almost half of California voters say the investigation into Russian influence in the U.S. election is crucially important.

Comeyâ
sfgate.com
Comey’s early morning testimony will be must-see TV, even in SF bars The Warriors game will be shown in practically every bar in town, as well as on a giant TV in San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza. Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee about President Trump and the Russia investigation with be shown too, but it might be a little trickier to find a public viewing of it. [...] a handful of San Francisco bars that open at 6 a.m. will have their TVs on, and many broadcasters plan to pre-empt regular programs in favor of the Comey hearings. At Ace’s bar on Sutter Street on lower Nob Hill, the TV will be on and the former FBI director will be front and center, said bartender Jason Bow. “We try to keep politics out,” said Sullivan, whose bar won’t actually be open for philosophizing until 10 a.m. We didn’t broadcast the presidential debates or the election or the inauguration. The giant TV screen will be removed immediately after the basketball game ends Wednesday night, said a spokeswoman for Mayor Ed Lee. The big screen is for spectator sports involving actual, not symbolic, contact.

Trump supporter pepper-sprayed at Berkeley sues for $23 million
sfgate.com
A woman who was pepper-sprayed when the protest against right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos turned violent at UC Berkeley in early February said Tuesday that she was suing the university and other entities for $23 million. Attorneys for Kiara Robles of Oakland, who is in her 20s, filed suit Monday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against 18 individuals and entities she alleges violated her First Amendment rights. In the incident caught on video, Robles is wearing a red “Make Bitcoin Great Again” hat that is otherwise identical to the Trump campaign’s “Make America Great Again” hats. Robles’ attorney, Larry Klayman of the conservative activist organization Freedom Watch, said his client was assaulted for supporting Trump on the liberal Berkeley campus. The California university system, and in part, Berkeley, is out of control, and they’re facilitating, if not inciting, violence, and the campus police sit around twiddling their thumbs. In a statement, UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said the California flagship university would contest in court this “collection of false claims.” Mogulof said the campus is committed to free speech, adding that administrators and the campus police department “spent countless hours and substantial university resources planning security measures.” After a peaceful demonstration that drew more than 1,000 to Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza to protest the appearance of Yiannopoulos — who was brought to the school by the College Republicans and who has since resigned from Breitbart News — masked anarchists joined the fray, hurling smoke bombs, shooting off fireworks and tearing down metal barriers.
