How does CBD help depression?

 

¡Buenos dias amigos y amigas! I'm still in the Capitol petri dish and using Kleenex like the world is running out of it. 

WONDER TWIN TUNNELS ACTIVATE! Ryan Sabalow and Dale Kasler report in the Bee that the Brown Administration yesterday announced the completion of the environmental review of the Twin Tunnels project, which would pump water under the Delta into the state water project that ferries water to the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California. Sacramento and Bay Area politicians and activists oppose it for fear that it will lower the salinity of the Delta, hurting the ecosystem.

REPAVE? As the referendum effort proceeds, Caltans yesterday released the initial road projects to be tackled under the gas tax/VLF fee approved in April, reports Tony Bizjak in the Bee.

WHAT'S NEXT? The AP's Kathleen Ronayne writes that the governor will likely turn to housing and high speed rail when the Legislature returns next month. 

The PE's Jeff Horseman reports on the descent in the Assembly Republican Caucus over his dealings on the cap-and-trade deal.

Happy birthday to Stephanie Freedman Herrera and Angie Tate!
