MADD on Prop. 22 + Wedding gowns at the Capitol + Parents for split roll, affirmative action

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

FIRST UP — Sen. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg, isn’t shy when it comes to touting the quality of one of his district’s most famous crops.

“World class cannabis comes from the Emerald Triangle (of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties),” he said.

Now that recognition is about to be official and enforce by law.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a law, authored by McGuire and inspired by the wine industry, that ties the coveted “appellation of origin” label to the sun and soil of a region.

If you’re a cannabis connoisseur, that’s a big deal. It means Emerald Triangle farmers can market their product to tout their North Coast roots, and potentially gain an advantage over competitors.

Parents have been advised to ensure children wear extra layers since windows will be open for ventilation

In a letter to parents last week, the city’s chief education officer Andy Gray said: “Classrooms will require to maintain adequate ventilation and, while school heating systems will be fully utilised, it would be wise to consider extra layers of clothing.”

John Dickie, director of Child Poverty Action Group Scotland, said the policy was understandable but highlighted the need for extra support.

“It reinforces the case for additional financial support to be made available to struggling low-income families. They are the ones who have been hardest hit by the economic impact of the pandemic.

Parents are impressed with mum’s four-gift rule for birthdays

Try this for your kids’ birthdays (Picture: Facebook)

A savvy mum from Australia has shared the hack she uses when sorting out birthday presents for the kids.

Mum Jypsie said when picking out the gifts, she considers four things – something her daughter wants, needs, can read, and can wear.

Jypsie wrote on a Facebook group that her daughter was turning five and wanted a skipping rope, hair chalk, and a secret diary.

The daughter also picked out sandals, a swimming costume, a pair of shorts to wear, and chose a fairy book to read.

The youngster also needed a new toothbrush. 

Jypsie also chose to book a haircut for the little girl as she wanted the youngster to experience new things.

Though the simple hack has wowed other parents who said they’d be trying it out with their children, it’s not a new concept.

DWTS’ Johnny Weir Gives His Parents the Ultimate Thank You Gift for Their Years of Sacrifice to Get Him to the Olympics

Disney night was an emotional one for Johnny Weir on Dancing With the Stars. In the video package before he took to the ballroom floor to dance the rumba with his professional partner Britt Stewart, he talked about the sacrifices his parents made for him, things like selling their cars, so that they could pay for professional trainers who would help him get to the Olympics.

“Family is very important to me and that’s something that I rarely get to talk about, because I’m commentating on the Olympics, or performing, or wearing crazy outfits that people like to talk about,” Weir told Parade.com after he danced. “I feel so honored that I was able to present my family in such a true and beautiful way as I did tonight.”

He also revealed that now that he is successful—he is a two-time Olympian and a television commentator—he has returned
