The Quest For Gnosis — Gabriel D. Roberts

This book may touch on some of those ideas in conversation, but will not be the primary focus here, instead the focus is upon equipping you with a new sense of wonder and understanding of just how big this omniverse is and just how amazing a part of it you can be. Though you will find the definition to vary within the pages of this book, the term Gnosis in its most basic form simply means knowledge. Lucy. News - The Nexian.

Can Marijuana Lift Colorado Out of the Recession? iStockphoto/Thinkstock Colorado raked in $5 million in tax revenue in 2011 from medical marijuana businesses, and its cities collected hundreds of thousands more from the budding industry.

With Colorado voters poised to legalize marijuana for recreational use this November, their tax coffers could be facing an avalanche of new funds currently being lost to the black market. But tax revenues aren’t the only potential economic benefit hinging on legal weed. If voters pass Amendment 64, which would legalize marijuana and regulate it like alcohol, the state will save $12 million in criminal and court costs in the first year, according to a report by the Colorado Center on Law & Policy.

It would also generate an estimated $24 million in excise tax revenue, all of which will go directly to the construction of new public schools. The report doesn’t delve into all the additional jobs that would be created within the marijuana market itself. Archaeology Magazine - Archaeology. PLOS Blogs Network.
