estonian film museum by andrés gallardo albajar

We're really digging these 'Wes Anderson-y' shots of the Estonian Film Museum by photographer Andrés Gallardo Albajar.  BOA Architects created this beautiful, modern structure and Andres does a perfect job of showcasing the many different facets through his lens. Our personal favorite shots are of the 210-seat cinema and conference hall with not one soul in the frame.

cannabis addiction is not heroin addiction. that doesn’t make it any less real.

When I tell people that I am a clinical psychologist who treats people with cannabis addiction, the response that I receive can often be disbelief. “Marijuana is a natural and medicinal plant,” people tend to voice. Versions of this argument can also be found in almost every comment section of any cannabis-related news story. This is correct—cannabis is natural. Cannabis can also have medicinal benefits for problems such as certain kinds of pain and chemotherapy-induced side effects. There is even upcoming research on the use of cannabis and cannabis derivatives in the treatment of particular psychiatric disorders, such as those involving post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and depressive symptoms (though this is both a complex and contentious area of research). Nevertheless, the fact that can

a team that now has a licence to grow cannabis

Last year in April, senior narcotics officers were discussing the drug problem in Himachal Pradesh at a conference organised by the Institute for Narcotics Studies and Analysis, a think-tank. Most of the talk centred around drug busts and how to tackle marijuana (and opium) farms. Here, Jahan Peston Jamas, 27, went up to talk about legitimising and strengthening the cannabis farms.

investor interest in cultivating medical cannabis in greece | business

Five consortiums with investment plans to cultivate cannabis for medical use, adding up to over 1 billion euros on paper, have already knocked on the door of Deputy Economy Minister Stergios Pitsiorlas.A few days ago the Greek Parliament approved the law for the production, manufacturing and sale of medical products containing cannabis, paving the way for attracting investment in a new and largely misunderstood activity.
