In the 10 years since he founded the Los Angeles-based Toms--whose revenue for the 12 months ending last June 30 was estimated by Moody's to be $392 million--Mycoskie has accumulated enough karmic capital to disappear for a week or two in pursuit of spiritual healing. His for-profit company has brightened more than 51 million lives with new shoes, restored vision, clean water, and safe births. Whoever writes the four-decade history of for-profit social ventures will devote a chapter to Toms' pioneering business model
Millennials may be in need of a different kind of reality check.

But with a civil violation, the case won’t enter the criminal system. “It allows us to give someone a break,” Miami-Dade Commissioner Sally Heyman told The Miami Herald. “It doesn’t destroy somebody’s life because they smoked a joint at a concert or had a pipe in their pocket.”

Florida’s most populous county thus joins 15 states and several cities in basically decriminalizing the long-demonized weed. Four more states (Washington, Colorado, Oregon and Alaska) and the District of Columbia have gone further, making it legal to possess modest amounts. And about half the states permit the use of medical marijuana.


A wave of sanity is sweeping South Florida and it concerns, of all things, marijuana. Miami-Dade County commissioners, supported by police, got things rolling on June 30 by giving law-enforcement officials the option of issuing $100 citations for possessing small amounts of pot, instead of charging people with a crime. The city of Miami Beach, and Broward and Monroe counties are considering doing the same. And Palm Beach County commissio...

While researching his new book, Stoned: A Doctor's Case for Medical Marijuana, Casarett examined the limited medical studies related to the drug's use, traveled to places where it is being used legally and tested it on himself. He also spoke to patients who had used the drug to treat a variety of ailments, including seizures, post-traumatic stress disorder and neuropathic pain.


Dr. David Casarett used to think of medical marijuana as "a joke." But after taking a deeper look, he's changed his mind. Casarett's new book is Stoned: A Doctor's Case for Medical Marijuana.

A Johnny-Come-Lately with a dearth of practical cannabis background not the place I go for expert insight.  Good place for the uninitiated to learn from a rube about the initiation process.   My sense is this doc figured he could make a quick buck by passing self off as a unobjective scientist.  Not buying it myself.  His prejudices too readily apparent.  (to me, book title alone very telling about how this is more about marketing a book)

Safety concerns led Denver officials to place a hold on tens of thousands of marijuana plants earlier this year, pending an investigation. Colorado doesn't require growers to test the crop for traces of pesticides before being sold. But state agriculture officials did recently release a list of pesticides deemed appropriate for use on cannabis. Washington state, Nevada and Illinois have similar lists. Eaton says regulators are only playing catch up.
Regulators in the 23 states where medical or recreational marijuana is allowed are having a tough time making sure pot buyers don't ingest harmful pesticides.

For six months, Suki Kim worked as an English teacher at an elite school for North Korea's future leaders — while writing a book on one of the world's most repressive regimes. As she helped her students grapple with concepts like "truth" and "critical thinking," she came to wonder: Was teaching these students to seek the truth putting them in peril? (This talk was part of a session at TED2015 guest-curated by Pop-Up Magazine: popupmagazine.com or...

We speak now to Wanda James, CEO of the Denver-based cannabis dispensary Simply Pure. She is the first African-American woman in Colorado to own a cannabis dispensary. She was inspired to start a dispensary by the experiences of her brother, who at 17 was locked up on a petty drug charge—and forced to pick cotton in Texas for four years to earn his freedom.
We are broadcasting live from Denver, Colorado, where in 2012 the state voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Now 23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for either medical or recreational use, and the cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing in the United States. But some have questioned who stands to cash in on the billions being generated by cannabis sales. Michelle Alexander, the best-selling auth...

Steadman is internationally known for the development of many advanced surgical procedures for the knee, including "microfracture," a procedure that repairs the damaged joint, and encourages the re-growth of articular cartilage. Today, microfracture is the most common treatment for chondral defects of the knee. He also developed the "healing response," and most recently, (in 2011) the "package," a technique that can restore normal, comfortable movement to the stiff and painful arthritic knee, thereby avoiding joint replacement surgery.
Dedicated to keeping people of all ages physically active through orthopedic research and education in arthritis, healing, rehabilitation, and injury prevention.

"We're going to be making sure that [members of Congress] know their constituents care about this stuff," said one industry representative.

unsexy-sounding piece of technology could mean that the police know where you go, with whom, and when: the automatic license plate reader. These cameras are innocuously placed all across small-town America to catch known criminals, but as lawyer and TED Fellow Catherine Crump shows, the data they collect in aggregate could have disastrous consequences for everyone the world over.
