Sunday's show was hosted by Laytonville High School students. The topic was "Reactions to Drug Education." The hosts were various students who had listened to Ralph Cantor on cannabis/alcohol and the developing brain. What did they learn? Is it important? What do they now know that their parents do not know? Do they consider marijuana use in high school a problem? I found they had interesting insights into drugs in the schools and drug education. Really worth hearing, and thinking about how important honest drug education in the schools is.
Mendocino Works, our new program about the nurture of healthy, homegrown startups, explored an innovative Angel Challenge competition in Norway where investors and entrepreneurs size each other up over multiple meetings before funds are awarded. Host Jeff Parker interviewed the program’s founder in Oslo, then interviewed two seasoned advocates who are adapting the model for rural US communities like Mendocino.
