KVMR Town Hall Forum: Teens and Marijuana A Discussion

Date 25 May 2018

Teens and Marijuana: A Discussion
The legalization of recreational cannabis/marijuana in California this year has stirred up plenty of controversial news. One aspect of the new law that hasn’t been given as much attention, is how it impacts our young people, especially teens. We, as parents, educators, and community citizens need to understand the differences in the cannabis industry today regarding dosages, edibles, and access. What are the possible solutions to keep our students healthy, happy, and engaged with their lives and futures?

A panel of local experts offered their perspective and thoughts on the dangers of marijuana and the teen brain, how to effectively use it medically, and how to communicate with our teens about marijuana safety.

Our panelists include Marlene Mahurin, TUPE (Tobacco Use Prevention Education) Project Coordinator, Ken Cutler, MD, MPH Nevada County Public Health, Forrest Hurd, Founder/Director of Caladrius Network, Hezekiah Allen, California Growers Association, Annie Keeling, parenting expert, and Glory Rain, student at Northpoint Academy.

This event was held on May 1, 2018, and moderated by Paul Emery.

Poetry 'Lovefest' featuring Gary Snyder & Will Staple

Date 28 April 2018

Poetry 'Lovefest' featuring Gary Snyder & Will Staple.
It was a veritable poetry lovefest they had on the San Juan Ridge earlier this month featuring readings by legendary poets Gary Snyder and Will Staple. And there's good reason for a lovefest, since it is National Poetry Month, and the event was a benefit for not only Nevada County Arts' second annual Sierra Poetry Festival but for the grassroots San Juan Ridge Community Library as well.
