🗣Is it true the $10 million social equity fund for cannabis just went to the LAPD and they are offering more licenses instead of funding assistance I wouldn’t be surprised, just disappointed. Sounds like it’s business as usual in Los Angeles County. Now instead of coming around and collecting hand money from individual shop owners they can just come in and take funding allocated for the opposite effect. Glad to know that we’ve all waited years for licensing so that the police could again (now legally) rob the same folks they incarcerated/robbed pre legalization. Aye, just give them paper licenses instead and watch them drown in the taxes or poor deal structure in the jaws of sharks 🦈 🤦🏼♀️ 🖕🏽 #brokensystem #socialequity #cannabiscommunity #regs #licensing #cannabis #cultivoinc #losangeles #socialactivism #californiacannabis #warondrugs #mycountrytisofthee #notaxationwithoutrepresentation
The music of a time long past plays in my ears and my heart soars with passion for this prairie farm. As I stand with my guardian in the very footsteps of those who built this nation, I am overcome with a gratitude that aches in my throat.
The story of the immigrant farmers is one of struggle, great peril, and sacrifice. Much like the native Americans’ story before it, this land has seen so much pain. As I look over this farm I am reminded of the lives lost to create this beautiful place I call home. The wrongs committed, the blood shed, and stories woven together on this piece of God’s handiwork are humbling to recognize.
As a nation, we have become entitled and fight amongst ourselves. We have forgotten the journey of those before us that carved out America into the now free and blessed land that it is today. This 1800s farmhouse stands as a monument to our past. I hope we can learn and do better in the future, for our children’s sake and so that all of the lives before us did not suffer in vain. ♥️🇺🇸 #GodblessAmerica .

To be honest, I still don’t fully understand this but figured I would share anyhow: When I first glimpsed her a few days ago, I gasped as if encountering her for the very first time and then my eyes welled up with tears. I became hypnotized by the barge of garbage passing in front of her. I’m teary-eyed even now as I write this. #statueofliberty #freedom #verklempt #omen #signs #vision #mycountrytisofthee #itooamamerica
Making memories that are bride-requested, and even kid approved!
Huge thanks to Bethany Kelly for letting us help make your day truly special! We wish you all the best!
Her dream cake was one that was devoted to the beauty of the bride, but also paid honor to the bravery and dedication of her groom. We were beyond honored to do our part! Thank you Scott for your service!
We LOVE to honor those who serve!
Took more of an exploratory run this morning and stopped to snap a few shots of one of my favorite parks in the city, which happens to be close to home. I’ll be moving away from this place in a few months and while I’ll miss the solitude and beauty of this park, even in the dead of winter, I can’t wait to see what ground my running shoes and I cover around the country. Honor your health today by stopping for a second and appreciating the places and parts of your environment that give you energy and peace at the same time. #honoryourhealth #saucony #stravarun #naturerocks #peacefulwarrior #mindfulness #morningrunsarethebest #mycountrytisofthee #wanderlust
