It’s been 20 years since the shooting at Columbine High School. In the two decades since, #columbine has loomed large in our politics, policy and culture.
In partnership with @the1ashow and KUNC in #Colorado , we looked into how our country’s changed and how it hasn’t in the years since.

Day 40 - Luang Prabang 🇱🇦: I didn’t know a whole lot about Laos before coming, but one thing I did know was how important the Buddist religion is to their culture. Luang Prabang is full of temples, each one as unique as the next.
We were pretty ‘templed-out’ after northern Thailand and never lingered long, but it was cool seeing how they were scattered throughout the heart of the city and how the monks, locals, and tourists, all shared the same sidewalks.
I took a liking to Luang Prabang shortly after arriving and the more I explored, the more I liked it. As you’ll see coming up - I did A LOT of exploring, so were just getting started here 📷👍🏻. #liveelevated .
We’ve created a monster. Well, not us specifically, but over the past few years the media has talked lot of smack about #cannabidiol (CBD), the non-intoxicating compound of the cannabis sativa plant, and the discussion, one that began with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, has now led a vast majority of the American people to believe that this substance is a miracle cure for all sorts of ailments. And it might be just that, but then again it is hard to praise the health benefits of anything that is set to become an ingredient in fast food. Yep. In case, you haven’t heard, the @carlsjr restaurant chain plans to experiment with a #CBD -infused burger at one of its Denver locations, just in time for the 420 holiday, and all we have to say is we hope CBD can cure a stomach-ache.
Hey, what did expect? We live in a capitalist society, one where corporate hounds are always sniffing out the next opportunity to make a buck, so it should come as no surprise that the fast food slingers of the nation are looking to put CBD, which some believe is the next best thing since sliced bread, in a sauce on beef patties squished in between two pieces of, well, sliced bread. It’s the circle of hype, so to speak, a ploy to capitalize on the unofficial holiday of the cannabis culture.
