November is Alzheimer's and Family Caregiver Awareness month - among other things - with no end in sight, we must be open to new ideas, to look at things that have been arbitrarily put on a "forbidden list". Many of you know that cannabis eased our family journey through dementia. Psilocybin is proven to re-grow neuronal connections. But most ppl aren't open to trying such taboo things because they believe their government when it said they are bad...much to all of our detriment. I'm glad that TIME published this families story. It's not about cannabis, but it expresses the great need for a complete system overhaul to address the coming tsunami.

This spectacle, I imagine, is what my father would have wryly dubbed the “zombie apocalypse”: the living dead wandering America’s streets as their brains are slowly eaten.
