You know what they say iron sharpens iron. Make sure to spend time with those who believe in your vision. Hang with those who will push you instead of pulling you down. Stick with the people who pull the magic out of you. Keep grinding! 👍🏽

Someone asked me what were my first purchases on Amazon.
Throwback Thursday to September 2001.
A couple days after 9/11.
I ordered these books.
I was in such a daze.
My dear friend Asamah from Pakistan had been beaten up badly, called terrorist & never returned back to the College of Science. I still wonder if he ever became a doctor. He was such a gentle soul.
The same week, heading to the masjid to hear my father speak.
An outraged woman rear ended my car, ran me off the road and into a ditch, as she screamed terrorist. She sped off w/ her stereotypes intact. I guess, I deserved it right, b/c I had an I love Islam sticker on my car's bumper.
I ordered these books, as I was on my want to be more enlightened flow. Small mindedness was suffocating my soul.
A couple of months later I was selected for a "Bioterrorism" project. It was a grad level water security research project. Due to my computer searches for the project, I had to meet with college faculty. They were aware of my connection with Al-Islam & my computer searches out of context raised a red flag.
All this came to my mind, when a friend asked what was your first purchases on Amazon.
I am who I am b/c what I've seen, been through & what I refuse to tolerate.

As expected, the launch of California’s adult-use marijuana program has brought significantly increased demand in marijuana products among consumers, and to meet that demand, regulators are working to approve temporary licenses across the supply chain. The infographic at the end of this article shows the growth of marijuana licenses in California during the first quarter of 2018 based on data from the Cannabiz Media License Database.
Since January 17, 2018, the number of temporary marijuana licenses granted in California grew by over 322% from 1,272 licenses on January 17, 2018 to 5,369 licenses on March 31, 2018. The growth rate during the same period broken down by type of license is below:
Cultivation licenses: 782% growth rate (from 349 to 3,077 licenses)Distributor licenses: 248% growth rate (from 176 to 613 licenses)Delivery licenses: 219% growth rate (from 52 to 166 licenses)Manufacturing licenses: 126% growth rate (from 302 to 682 licenses)Retail licenses: 126% growth rate (from 137 to 309 licenses)Microbusiness licenses: 126% growth rate (from 57 to 129 licenses)Dispensary licenses: 99% growth rate (from 184 to 366 licenses)Testing licenses: 80% growth rate (from 15 to 27 licenses)
California has been issuing an average of 65 licenses per day in 2018, and if this pace continues, there could be more than 20,000 marijuana licenses in the state by the end of the year
