Download our doctor’s booklets explaining the use of cannabis as a relaxant and/or anti-depressant to help you get a physicians statement even if you’re healthy!
Our mission is to deliver compassion to the healthy and coverage to the sick. Our goal is to teach the world that healthy people use medicine too, that recreation is a subset of medicine, that there are many herbs that can be used for preventive medicine and performance enhancement and that there is no such thing as an illegitimate cannabis user … no such thing as the “non-medicinal” use of drugs … there is only abuse and beneficial use. The whole human race would benefit medicinally, economically and spiritually from a broader definition of “medicine”. As was noted in “Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rocky Mountains” by Terry Willard PHD, “Medicine, in the Indian sense, connected most things that were good.” Anyone can learn what is good and not good about herbs. And you don’t need to be a doctor to practice medicine - ok, maybe you need to be a doctor to play with pills, knives and needles, but medicine is so much more than that. To be a herb dealer, you need to know about what you’re selling, you need to know what a fair price is and you need to know how to avoid poisoning people - these are skills anyone can learn. The Stressed And Depressed Association promises to devote 10% of all sales of cannabis that is sold to those with anxiety and depression to go towards providing poor people with more serious and life-threatening ailments with free cannabis. We must all become the dispensaries we wish to see in the world.
Doomed Antarctic Explorer's Last Photos Up for Auction
Photographs taken by explorer Robert Falcon Scott during his ill-fated trip to Antarctica are being auctioned off in London today.
The photos depict day-to-day life at the base camp on Antarctica’s Ross Island in the months leading up to Scott’s trek to the South Pole in 1911 — a journey from which he never returned. Scott and four other men from the so-called Terra Nova expedition perished on the long walk back from Earth’s southernmost point. But the explorer’s photos lived on, thanks to Herbert Ponting, the chief photographer for the Terra Nova mission.
As Scott and his team trudged toward the South Pole, Ponting stayed behind at the Ross Island base camp, where a relief party brought Scott’s camera before the captain became stranded in the snow. Ponting developed the negatives in the camp’s tiny darkroom and sent the photos home to England. Read more.

Few relationships in Shirley Temple’s childhood would match the special chemistry and affection shared by her and legendary tap dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. While on screen together for so many iconic moments, especially as dance partners, offscreen they were the closest of friends. He was “Uncle Billy” and she was “Darlin.” In 1936 Robinson presented Shirley with one of the most prized gifts of her childhood, a motorized custom car in “Shirley Size” by the Knickerbocker Motor Co. Upon receiving it Shirley proceeded to drive the car around the Fox Studio lot with Robinson hanging on for dear life as seen in this photo. The car, emblazoned with “Shirley Temple” in red on each side (the motor long since removed though as young Shirley had a tendency to just miss running into people!) will be seen at both the exhibits around the U.S. and offered at the July 14 auction event in Kansas City along with a series of original photographs of Shirley happily in the drivers seat.
