How does CBD help depression?

  

Happy Humpday! It's a perfect morning outside. 

Health care lobbyist and friend Tam Ma is leading a drive for school supplies for kids who are part of the Wellspring Women's Center and My Sister's House communities. These are two incredible organizations supporting women and their families who are looking for, as My Sister's House uses as it's slogan, a "save haven."

I bought a couple of backpacks and pencils and highlighters. You can do the same buy ordering off the Amazon wish list she created @ a.co/069RlAG. Look at the "Quantity: Has:" on Amazon so we don't cover her lawn with the icononic Amazon boxes. †Or, if you see her in the next couple of days around the Capitol, you can give her a check (what are those?) or cash for her big Target trip. Cảm ơn bạn Tam!

S.F. supervisors amend, then pass, affordable housing law
sfgate.com
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed two pieces of legislation intended to keep lower- and middle-class residents in the city, each requiring a hard-won compromise between the board’s moderate and progressive wings. The second law requires developers of large properties to make a portion of their units — 18 percent for rentals and 20 percent for condominiums — affordable, dividing them up among low-, moderate- and middle-income families. Months in the making, the law became a drawn-out piece of political theater at City Hall, as progressive Supervisors Aaron Peskin and Jane Kim haggled with their moderate counterparts, London Breed, Ahsha Safai and Katy Tang. “Everything we fought for with this legislation was to expand the definition of ‘affordable’ to include working people,” Safai said after the meeting. The board on Tuesday also approved a $120,000 settlement with an electrician who claimed he was sexually harassed by a fellow city employee while doing repairs at the Hall of Justice.
