#230: Is Cannabis The Answer To Everything?
By Mark Isero • Issue #234 • View online
Happy Thursday and good morning, loyal readers! — that is, unless you live on the East Coast, or in Europe, or you’re Anne in Japan. If it’s not 9:10 am in your neck of the woods, hit reply and demand a correction. After all, this newsletter is growing, you deserve the best, and facts are facts.
Today’s lead article, which charts the rise of the cannabis wellness industry, and the second piece, which details the plight of the nuclear family, talk to each other in an intriguing way. They’re both about the stress and isolation of modern society, and both offer possible remedies to ameliorate the pain. If you have time to read both, it’ll be worth it. If you do, let me know what you thought!
If you’re looking for something more awe-inspiring, head directly to the bottom for an uplifting dose of grizzly bears. Then end your reading session with the absurd, a story of two middle-aged white men fighting over a few feet of a river shore. Enjoy!
+ Article Club keeps getting better and better! This month, we’re reading and discussing Paul Tough’s “Getting an A,” and Mr. Tough generously answered our questions this week, which I’ll publish as a podcast episode this Sunday. If you’re interested in what Article Club is all about, there’s still time to join. To find out more, go here, here, or sign up for our in-person or online discussions on Feb. 23.

+ Reader Annotations: After reading last week’s lead article, “How To End Traffic,” loyal reader Erik, a proud Honda Fit owner, did not appreciate that I’m thinking of limiting the time I spend in my car. He wrote, “I love my Fit! It is so reliable! But I’m concerned that the tire indicator is always on.” You and me both, Erik.
