STONED KIDS

Medical marijuana is legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia, but there are still use cases that are very controversial, like medical marijuana for children. Some claim it’s a wonder drug for epilepsy, severe autism, and even to quell the harsh side effects of chemotherapy, while others decry pumping marijuana into still-growing bodies. We went to the small town of Pendleton, Oregon, where medical marijuana is legal, to visit Mykayla Comstock, an eight-year-old leukemia patient who takes massive amounts of weed to treat her illness. Her family, and many people we met along the way, believe not only in the palliative aspects of the drug, but also in marijuana’s curative effect—that pot can literally shrink tumors.

Watch this interesting docu.

Smile as soon as you wake up. It’ll get you in a good mood for the rest of the day.

DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.

This is how our brain works when we go on a date to meet our crush. It’s interesting how our left-brain and right-brain function when it comes to making decisions and taking actions. Most of you may already know that the left-brain controls our rational thinking, it tells us to be logical and well-planned; the right-brain is more about our emotions and creativity. 

Is this so, so, so funny just to me or? :D This video is so good, and so true.

The opposite of deja vu is ‘jamais vu.’ Jamais vu is not remembering something you always see.
