How does CBD help depression?

 

Happy Monday! It's another beautiful early fall day in Sacramento. 

The Charlottesville conflict came to the capital city yesterday in a march from city hall to the Capitol, report the Bee's Anita Chabria and Molly Sullivan. "More than 500 people, including Mayor Darrell Steinberg and city council members, gathered at Sacramento City Hall and marched to the steps of the state Capitol in response to events in Charlottesville, Va., where a rally of white supremacists sparked clashes that left one dead and dozens injured, according to media reports."

Former senator Ron Calderon is seeking early release from his prison sentence, reports Alexei Koseff in the Bee. He's scheduled to be released from his Oregon prison cell on January 19, 2019, but is seeking to be placed in a halfway house near his Montebello home for the last year of his sentence for corruption. His sentence has already been reduced by 18 months, but attorney Mark Geragos (yes, of OJ fame) has been working hard for early release. Somehow Calderon is paying Geragos, probably one of the most expensive defense lawyers in California.

Needless to say, Calderon is not one of the pride of my alma mater UC Davis School of Law. Thank you Dario Frommer, Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Darrell Steinberg and George Miller for showing Aggie law pride with strong ethics.

Sf Sues Trump Administration For Threatening Sanctuary Cities - Sfgate
sfgate.com
San Francisco city officials have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice over its plan to prevent San Francisco and other so-called sanctuary cities from receiving public safety grants from the federal government. The lawsuit, filed Friday afternoon by City Attorney Dennis Herrera, represents the latest front in an ongoing battle between the Trump administration and local governments, such as San Francisco, which as a sanctuary cities refuse to work with federal immigration authorities trying to detain or deport people in the country illegally. The new suit takes specific aim at what's known as the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, which provides money that local governments use to purchase things like police cars and fund a variety of public safety efforts, including jail diversion programs, adult alternative courts and social work services, Herrera said. Specifically, San Francisco and other sanctuary cities would have to allow federal immigration officials access to their local jails in order to interrogate suspects and provide federal officials with 48 hours notice of the impending release of peoplewanted for questioning. So-called sanctuary policies make all of us less safe because they intentionally undermine our laws and protect illegal aliens who have committed crimes," Sessions said at the time "These policies also encourage illegal immigration and even human trafficking by perpetuating the lie that in certain cities, illegal aliens can live outside the law.
