Hated by prohibitionists and loved by its consumers and advocates, marijuana is considered taboo despite that it’s one of the least harmful drugs you can find.

Death by caffeine or Tylenol is more likely than death by marijuana, as the herb has never claimed a single life. Nevertheless, it remains a target of politicians and “ordinary” people who think, misguidedly might I add, that it represents society’s worst problems.

There was plenty of fear to go around when Colorado legalized cannabis, with wild claims ranging from “it’ll bring in more crime!” to “children will start using it!”, none of which has happened. Instead, it’s helped the state in countless ways that make legalization look viable.

The following are 25 facts about legalization in Colorado for those looking to visit or those interested in how it’s helped the state thrive. Continue reading Marijuana Legalization in Colorado: 25 Facts


Image Study of our Moon Finds “Unusual Structures” & Potential “Passageways” Leading Underground

By Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Members of the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) have recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. Titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C,” it argues that these features might be artificial in origin, meaning someone other than a human being built them and put them there.

Contrary to popular belief, reports of artificial structures on the moon are both common and persistent.  Among the first were from George Leonard’s 1976 book, Somebody Else is on the Moon, and Fred Steckling’s 1981 book, We Discovered Alien Bases on The Moon. There are many more, and from many credible sources, which we will get to later in the article.

You Don’t Need to Do Big Things to Change the World

By Caroline M. Harper,  Tiny Buddha, Thanks to Conscious Life News

“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.” ~Mother Teresa

Life is complicated. The world’s problems are extremely complex. But what if you could help solve the world’s problems? What if you were a world changer?

Seems rather daunting, doesn’t it? Me? Change the world?! I used to feel like an ostrich, burying my head in the sand and trying to ignore all the hurt and evil in the world, because I felt helpless, like there wasn’t anything I could do.

I didn’t always feel that way though. There was a time when I felt I could make a difference… Continue reading You Don’t Need to Do Big Things to Change the World

Humpty Trumpty and the Shear in the Matrix

By Zen Gardner, Waking Times


Hey Z, I don’t know if it has occurred to you as well, but the reaction to Trump’s support and presidency is divided by such polar opposites as to be a possible indication of alternative timelines among us.

His vulgarity, misogynist, and racist tendencies have been on full display for everyone to see. Yet, there are those who still think that his populist rhetoric will circumvent all that and keep him on a pedestal of acclaim. I just don’t get it. I think he’s bordering on insanity.

What’s your take on it? – Mark Continue reading Humpty Trumpty and the Shear in the Matrix

Panera Kept Promise, New Menu is Now 100% Clean

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

Big news! Panera Bread Menu is Now 100% Clean. Panera has kept its promise to phase out artificial ingredients, artificial food dyes, preservatives and ingredients no one can pronounce.

Even as late as 2014, the chain failed to live up to their $70 million dollar ad campaign: Live Consciously. Eat Deliciously. Not with their GMOs, MSG, chemical preservatives, nitrates and many, hidden ingredients.

However, not only have they met their aggressive deadline to roll out a new “100% Clean” menu by 2017, but they have actually sworn off at least 96 ingredients including FD&C colors, sodium benzoate, sodium nitrite, sodium phosphate, MSG and its hidden counterparts, artificial flavors and sweeteners, propylene glycol and other petro-derived chemicals, aluminum-based ingredients and more. They had to work with hundreds of vendors and review 450 ingredients to make this deep change. Continue reading Panera Kept Promise, New Menu is Now 100% Clean

Are you focusing on the important things in life? While it’s good to keep busy, its crucial to focus on improving the quality of life versus the quantity of what we have or what we do.

Is It Time To Stop Being The Lone Wolf In Your Ascension Journey?

By Jelelle Awen,

You are not alone. You were not meant to do this journey alone. You come from a Divine Source that invites you to embrace and remember this. In this embracement, you no longer feel alone. Divine Source is the home frequency for which you can return over and over to remind yourself of where you came and where you will eventually return.

In your lone wolf self is the habit to be overly self sufficient. It has been a necessary phase that your soul chose in order to navigate the denser frequencies of third dimensional reality. This lone wolf energy, this self protection, has been necessary to move through life with an overloaded emotional pain body and undigested karmic infused soul field. It is overloaded and feels tired from caring this ‘burden’ alone. This lone wolf needs to feel that there is a higher self you that is ready and able to ask for help to carry the load of what you are here to heal and feel as a soul.

Deja Vu, Quantum Entanglement And Tuning Into The Magic Of Synchronicity

By Luke Miller, Truth Theory

Synchronicity is a term which was famously coined by psychologist and mystic Carl Jung- the definition is when 2 or more seemingly unrelated incidents occur which at first glance may seem coincidental, but upon further inspection have some kind of relation to each other.

Deja Vu

Number codes are quite frequent – possibly the most frequently reported is that of seeing 11:11, but it also goes a lot further than just numbers. Synchronicity can be a feeling too, and depending on your beliefs in reincarnation could very well continue from one lifetime to the next, one may call it deja vu, and while there is no scientific way to prove that deja vu is past life regression it could very well be the case.

Wind-Powered Device Pulls Up to 10 Gallons of Pure Drinking Water a Day — From Thin Air

By Carolanne Wright, Wake Up World

In the West, it’s easy to take our access to clean water for granted. With modern plumbing, fresh water is at our fingertips with the turn of the tap. But in many developing countries, pollution and waterborne diseases are an unfortunate reality. Around the world, 1.1 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water, and 2.6 billion suffer from inadequate sewage. Women spend hours of their day collecting water from distant and oftentimes polluted sources. Every minute a child dies of a water-related illness. More than 840,000 people die each year from diseases related to tainted water.

And this problem is not only a Third World issue. Even in industrialized countries, we don’t have to look much farther than Flint, Michigan to see the devastating effect poor water quality can have on the health and well-being of a community.

This is why a low-cost, wind-powered invention that harvests up to 10 gallons of clean water a day — from thin air — is causing such a stir. Continue reading Wind-Powered Device Pulls Up to 10 Gallons of Pure Drinking Water a Day — From Thin Air

California on the Verge of $7 Billion Legalized Pot Industry

By Christina Sarich, The Mind Unleashed

With some Californians threatening to secede due to Trump’s controversial policies, the state may not need the federal funds which our newly elected President plans to withhold if California refuses to comply with his demands for ‘Sanctuary Cities,’ places where illegal immigrants are thought to be given refuge. The legalized marijuana industry will provide California with a projected $7 billion dollars, rivaling the industries of Washington and Colorado.
