Colorado marijuana-legalization measure raises question of pot tourism10.18.11

Colorado’s legalization of limited possession of marijuana — if voters approve it this November — would bring the attention of the nation to the state, both sides of the issue agreed Wednesday.

Where they disagreed, though, is whether that attention would be a good thing.

In a debate co-hosted by The Denver Post and 9News, Amendment 64 opponent Happy Haynes said the measure would attract illegal-drug dealers, hurt Colorado’s brand among businesses and bring in unwanted marijuana tourists. Proponent Betty Aldworth saw it differently, saying there is no evidence the measure would harm the state’s business climate and that any marijuana-motivated visitors would be welcome.

“Those are tourism dollars, are they not?” Aldworth asked.

Haynes said the state should be more discriminating.

“The idea that any dollars that we get are OK, I’m not in favor of swelling our state coffers … with money because people are getting high,” she said.

Amendment 64 would make legal possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for adults 21 and older and also allow adults to grow up to six marijuana plants in their home. But it would also allow for specially licensed marijuana stores, which could sell to anyone 21 and older who presents “government-issued identification to determine the consumer’s age.”

Your Skin Is What You Eat09.17.11

Chicago Skin Care Expert Says Nutrition Matters

The trick to beautiful, age defying skin, and soft, gorgeous hair isn’t just in what you apply, it’s what you eat.

Skin Care Plus

The foods that are good for the skin and hair are high in antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins C and E. Here’s a list of some of the foods that help make you beautiful from within, and the reasons why:

– Fruits high in vitamin C like kiwi, oranges, blueberries and grapefruits. Vitamin C has always been on top of everyone’s list of essential vitamins and minerals. Not only does Vitamin C help you get better when you’re down with the flu, it also stimulates the production of collagen in the body.

Collagen, which can be found in all the parts of the body but predominantly in the skin, bones, teeth and hair, helps maintain the skin’s firmness. Vitamin C is also known to prevent the skin from looking aged.

– Nuts and seeds. Walnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E, the vitamin that reduces skin flare-ups and makes hair healthy. They contain nutrients that prevent inflammation as well as enhance immunity. Not only will you have vibrant skin, you’re also protecting yourself against cold and flu.

– Dark chocolate. Before you get all excited about how chocolate can be good for your skin, remember that only those chocolates with high levels of cocoa flavanols, phytonutrient compounds that have an antioxidant effect, like the ones with at least 60 percent cacao, fit in this criteria. A small piece of dark chocolate hydrates the skin, leaving it soft and supple.

– Sweet potatoes. This wonder food contains beta carotene for healthy, bright eyes, and antioxidants that help prevent the skin from aging. Eating sweet potatoes regularly keeps us young and sharp. Who doesn’t want that?

– Spinach. The nutrients packed in this green leafy vegetable give us an overall sense of well-being on top of its beautifying properties. It’s a good source of all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients we need for younger looking skin and hair.

– Wild salmon. Salmon that hasn’t been grown in fish farms is one of the best sources for omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 keeps your skin moisturized and prevents acne breakouts. It is also good for your heart, so go ahead and indulge.
