Author’s note: Writers are naturally attracted to the feel of paper. After all, it is paper that binds us together in the written word when we publish our books. The electronic book, be it in the form of a smartphone, tablet or Kindle offers so little to the bibliophile who craves that ‘new book smell’ or yearns for the feeling of paper coursing past their fingers when turning a page. To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever experienced a paper-cut while turning the page on a Kindle. This is truly one of life’s unique experiences and one that cannot be duplicated in the electronic medium. Making notes on paper, the exemplification of the written arts with the written word is a timeless pastime.

Nearly everyone has been to their local garden store and ogled over the varieties of fresh herbs that you can grow on your windowsill garden. Who knew there were so many different kinds of basil?

 Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

Allison Margolin

The Cannabis space has certainly changed on the West Coast of the United States in the past decade or so. With this change has come certain challenges. Legal ones come to mind immediately and with any sort of cannabis legalization, there needs to be talented and intellectual people to defend high profile cases against improper charges and institute change across the boundaries of what is correct, to what is right. Criminal defense attorneys are not just born, they are nurtured. And by the very basis of their craft, the craft of cannabis, there is more and more the need to develop strategies and intellectualism for more than just a street corner drug bust. That’s where Allison Margolin comes to the table. She operates in a very studious fashion and rightfully so. One does not become successful and a go/to in the cannabis world without being the very best!

Economists once speculated that with the growth of technology, humans would have more time on our hands, and with it we’d expand into leisure activities. In fact, the opposite has happened: we’re working now more than ever. It’s hardly surprising: work gives us activities, meaning, purpose and community. But what if there’s more to life? Many feel the urge to take a step back, but it’s easier said than done. So how can we slow down while keeping up? This discussion draws insight from neuroscience, mindfulness and more to offer some answers.

You’d be hard pressed to find an authority figure when it comes to cannabis cocktails. But Warren Bobrow, the author of Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics, doesn’t think that’s because the combination is a bad idea. He should know — he literally wrote the book on the subject. He’s a strong believer in a good cannabis cocktail. It’s just that everyone else (other than a few brave bar owners) is too scared to tackle the subject.

“I don’t think anyone has had the nerve to do it, nor have they found a publisher to take that type of risk,” Bobrow tells me over the phone, chuckling. “This is not a big lucrative project. I wish it was, but there’s so much preconceived stuff about it.”
