How does CBD help depression?

 

Happy humpday! Summer recess (essentially) starts after legislators blow the town after session tomorrow. Staffers are getting out their flip-flops and shorts out and are readying for the casual summertime season. Given that the weather forecast remains with highs around 100 for the next ten days, recess is very welcome.

SF supervisors create office to handle coming cannabis business
sfgate.com
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday created a new “one-stop shop” to handle policies for marijuana businesses once recreational cannabis becomes legal. “We’ve had an industry that’s been on the margins of legality for a large part of its existence, and now the state is about to fully legalize adult use,” Sheehy said, noting that the new state law left many policy issues open for debate. “We have not done a good job of getting equity in the tech sector,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, who feared that the people who were most harmed by U.S. policies would be excluded from the cannabis business. The city budget included $700,000 to fund three Office of Cannabis positions — a manager, a principal analyst and a management assistant — along with overhead, website development and public outreach. Mayor Ed Lee also set aside $665,227 this year for five new Department of Public Health employees who would help oversee permitting for medical cannabis dispensaries. Separately, the board finally passed a set of comprehensive affordable housing laws that require developers of new market-rate projects to set aside a portion of their units — 18 percent for rentals and 20 percent for condominiums — for low-, moderate- and middle-income families. [...] a proposal to dilute a 2014 law mandating that companies beautify sidewalk utility boxes hit resistance at Tuesday’s meeting. The measure by Supervisor Malia Cohen would have allowed telecom and Internet service providers such as AT&T to pay fees instead of planting trees near the boxes or decorating them with murals. The owner move-in law, which had been the focus of months of debate between the moderate and progressive wings of the board, passed unanimously on a final vote.

Family sues UCSF following death of cancer patient
sfgate.com
In one of the first legal actions involving California’s “right to die” law, the family of a deceased cancer patient is suing UCSF Medical Center, alleging the system did not appropriately aid the woman in ending her life. The San Francisco Superior Court suit, filed by attorneys for the family of Judy Dale on July 7, claims that Dale’s caretakers at the hospital told her they would assist her in obtaining medication to help her die — but then suddenly backtracked. California’s End of Life Option Act went into effect in June 2016, a landmark and controversial piece of legislation that allows terminally ill adults to obtain medication to end their life if certain conditions are met. The hospital said it was one of the first in the state to develop a protocol for complying with the state law, adding that it “respects” the right of its physicians to opt out at their discretion. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, also names the University of California Board of Regents, among other UCSF-connected entities.
