“420 To CanAmerica.” Half Of US Are Already There.

APRIL 20, 2018. 420 in America is like Earth Day a few years ago. 420 is not a police term for “active marijuana use.” But it did begin in Colorado. The Rockies now almost represent weed liberation, a budding mecca many feel is now creating the path to a sensible and widely beneficial future.
Weed in American has grown up, grown strong, and grown unrecognizable relative to its ancient roots. Cannabis is in fact a plant in human use for thousands of years. And then it came to America–oops, that was an accident.
Southern slave owners had no idea what they were starting when they imported people from Africa and the Caribbean to work their fields. Then they discovered the weed, oops, again. Then came Anslinger, culturally entrenched alcohol, propaganda, a fruitless war that plows on today, and then business. It will be business that finally drags this “Devil Weed” from the clutches of ignorance and shadow. It’s 420 in CanAmerica.

The Machine’s Fine. Then Why Do We Keep Getting Images Of Warren Buffet And Jeff Bezos? Because You Have It Set On TAROT, Not X-RAY. You’re Looking at Your Future. Come on Doc. Is That Alcohol I Smell?

FEBRUARY 1, 2018. It doesn’t have a “Tarot” setting. The next one will. Warping reality takes power. Successful medicine creates a new reality. Now perhaps it’s healthcare itself that’s about to receive a new reality called non-profit.

Healthcare’s savage and relentless cost climb can be broken–so it seems. Why else would two of the planet’s three richest people state so? And that’s exactly what Buffet, Bezos, and Dimon, have said. Dazzling.

Steering Off-road, the Lions of Winter are going non-profit, and digital. Chops proved. What do you think is going on in the high offices of high healthcare profit today? Like Ian Fleming called it. It’s a lot of tension and “Sour Stress Sweat.” Wait, is that BCBS crying for mommy? Enjoy. We are.
