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.

The Underground Sound: 8/25/13: Poets Bill Gainer and Joe Hall

Date 3 October 2013

Tune in as Meri St. Mary talks with Poets Bill Gainer & Joe Hall, both of whom are very active in the poetry scene spanning the USA. The Poets in general are a very motivated bunch & there are readings virtually every night in a city/town near you. There are a plethora of chapbooks available at readings as well as published works available at fine bookstores that support independent & underground press as well as from the poets directly! Both Bill Gainer & Joe Hall read from their latest books: “The Fine Art Of Poisoning” & “The Devotional Poems” in this hour that goes by so fast you will want to listen again & again. Is it possible to delve into the mind of a poet or is it enough to hear their take on life that is original and uniquely their own perspective? Ponder on this & revel in their words poetically put. NOW, is the pen mightier than the sword? Well, that’s for you to decide!!!!
