OPINION Editorial

Running for County Supervisor V

entura County politics, or rather local governance in general, can be a wonder. It’s the lifting off point for many into higher office, such as Democrat Julia Brownley, who got her start running for trustee of the school district that her child had attended. She lost her first run, but persistence paid off, from her election as a trustee all the way to becoming a U.S. Representative. That is a similar story for many climbing the political ladder. In Ventura County, running for County Supervisor has become a rather fierce and divisive campaign. For instance, in 2015, then-FOOD Share Director Bonnie Weigl announced her campaign to run for District 1, covering West County. Given her affiliation to the nonprofit and funding FOOD Share would routinely request from the county, the community became divided over her decision to run. She eventually withdrew from the race. In 2016, Kelly Long ran for District 3 (covering Camarillo, Port Hueneme, Southeast Oxnard, East Oxnard Plain, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Piru, East Lockwood Valley and Eastern Portion of Naval Base Ventura County Port Hueneme) and won with 30,834 votes, compared to Carla Castilla at 28,959. The semi-quasi trick is that her predecessor, who served as supervisor for 20 years, is named Kathy Long — no relation. Although the position is nonpartisan, the difference is that the decisions by Kathy leaned left, while Kelly leans right. Kelly’s background in politics — Pleasant Valley School Board of Trustees — appears fairly neutral and typical. But a representative in her office, Matt Guthrie, was the director of CoLAB, a nonprofit dedicated to addressing overregulation of land uses and improving business relations in the ag community. He also served as the political director for Republican Jeff Gorell, who ran against Brownley and lost; and as a district representative for the California Assembly Republican Caucus. There is nothing wrong, per se, about party affiliation, but it did come across as opportunistic for someone having such a similar name as the longterm supervisor to run for office — especially given that Kathy and Kelly appear to be very different on their views on governance. There is a saying about birds of a feather when reflecting on Guthrie working for Kelly. Now, the most interesting seat thus far is District 1, with Steve Bennett terming

out after 20 years in the position. Bennett makes no qualms about his environmental activism, with policies and votes leaning left. There was, however, a big to-do during one 2018 Ventura City Council candidate forum about a response from sitting City Councilman Erik Nasarenko, who was running for reelection. While there were prepared questions for the candidates for Districts 4 and 5, the audience was afforded the opportunity to ask questions during the forum. One question, asked by Michael Anderson, financial advisor and KVTA talk show host, appeared targeted for Nasarenko: Will you be serving a full term? Candidate Spencer Noren, ambassador for the Rancho Conservancy founded by the Atmores, Richard and Bonnie, formerly Weigl, was robust in his response about his four-year commitment. The rest followed suit, with the exception of Nasarenko, who simply responded that he didn’t know. At that time, he was completing a five-year term due to changing the election years — from odd years to even. Noren, who had been video recording the meeting, cut the clip out of Nasarenko and started a whole campaign about how Nasarenko appeared unreliable. While Nasarenko has since been quiet about running for higher office, Ventura Mayor Matt LaVere has officially declared his run for Supervisor District 1. He is still in his first term. Noren, however, made it abundantly clear that he supported LaVere as Noren was running for City Council but since then, there has been no outcry over LaVere jumping from City Council to Supervisor. That seems odd since Noren tried to exploit Nasarenko’s noncommittal response about a full second term while LaVere hasn’t even completed his first four-year term on City Council before announcing his run. There is much at stake when it comes to governing Ventura County, even the city of Ventura. When it comes to politicians, however, trusting words and actions to be linear is often foolish, and that is with any politician. We are concerned about the lack of transparency and consistency when it comes to many involved in and running the local political show. But it’s hard to convince the public that they should be privy to clear and concise information about those running for office when household names triumph over newspaper editorials.

sure. There are many examples of big projects that did not work out as expected. Consider the high speed rail project — or Oxnard’s GREAT (water recycling) project. When big projects go badly, millions of dollars are lost. The consequences ultimately fall on the poor. We citizens must pay more attention to large multi-million dollar project proposals. At first, we were told that treated sewage water is processed to be 97 percent pure (prior to its release into the ocean). Recycling

advocates insisted that the cost to remove the remaining 3 percent would be minimal. However, as it turns out, the project will be very expensive — many hundreds of millions of dollars. Also, Ventura will incur significant expenditures for annual operating costs. Ventura has prepared a draft environmental impact report (EIR). If you would like to comment on the EIR, you must do so prior to April 22, 2019. For details and instructions, please direct your browser to the following web address: www.cityofventura.ca.gov/1470/ Ventura-Water-Pure Opponents of the Ventura Water-Pure Project include Venturans for Responsible & Efficient Government aka VREG. A major concern is that there is no long-term track record for Direct Potable Reuse (DPR). DPR is a process to sanitize sewage water and then pipe it directly back to households for drinking purposes. Are Ventura residents being used as guinea pigs to enhance the resumes of Ventura’s elected officials and staff ? You may review VREG’s critique at the following web address: www.vregventura.org/are-you-really-contentto-drink-sewage-when-you-dont-have-to/ Should Ventura allow the project to proceed past the point of no-return OR wait until DPR has a proven track record? There are various possibilities for phasing in DPR and/or reducing wastewater going to the estuary. In all scenarios — involving either wastewater use or disposal —a pipeline into the ocean will be required. Thus, shouldn’t Ventura build this (outfall/brine) pipeline first? It seems likely many residents will not drink the recycled water. Those that have the money will drink only bottled water — or they will install expensive equipment to filter the water before it enters their homes. Some may decide to boil the water before drinking it. In addition to the health risk, “toilet to tap” will create a massive and lethal security risk. A terrorist will be able to use any toilet in the city to flush a toxic agent that could end up in our drinking water.  At this time, it is hard to see “economic and social” justice in Ventura’s Water-Pure Project. ¿Dónde está la justicia económica y social?

Ventura County cities’ rules on cannabis business Looking to partake from the comfort of your home in Ventura County? Depending on your whereabouts, it could be easy like a Sunday morning or hard like the resin at the bottom of a discarded bong. On Jan. 1, 2019, California State Law changed in order to allow cannabis deliveries into cities even if they have on the books ordinances preventing them. Thus, cities are currently working on updating existing ordinances. Some dispensaries aren’t waiting, however. Here’s how cities stand on cannabis delivery and dispensaries.

CAMARILLO Dispensaries: None Deliveries: Originally banned, save for medical cannabis deliveries by a licensed caregiver.

MOORPARK Dispensaries: None. Deliveries: Originally banned

OJAI Dispensaries: Three. Prior to the summer of 2018, only medical cannabis was allowed to be sold at dispensaries. An ordinance adopted in July allowed for recreational sales as well. Deliveries: Yes

PORT HUENEME Dispensaries: Since legalizing dispensaries for medical and recreational use in the summer of 2018, at least six dispensaries are open in the city. Deliveries: Yes

OXNARD Dispensaries: On April 4, the Planning Commission voted to present an ordinance regulating the manufacturing, testing and distribution of cannabis that will now go before the City Council. Currently, there are no dispensaries in Oxnard. Deliveries: Originally banned, save for medical cannabis deliveries by a licensed caregiver.

SIMI VALLEY Dispensaries: In 2018, voters approved a tax measure for sales of marijuana in the city, but currently there are no plans to allow recreational or medical sales. Deliveries: Originally banned

THOUSAND OAKS Dispensaries: Legendary Organics has been approved by the city to open a dispensary in neighboring Newbury Park, but there is currently no timeline for when the shop will open. Deliveries: Originally banned

VENTURA Dispensaries: None, but in March, the council weighed the option of placing a marijuana question on the 2020 ballot that could open the door for cannabis operations in the city. Deliveries: In March, the Ventura City Council voted to direct city staff to craft an ordinance that would be in compliance with new state delivery regulations. “I think it will be easier to get deliveries in Ventura after the revise.” – Ventura Mayor Matt LaVere in March 2019 on the future of cannabis deliveries in the city. — Chris O’Neal

The business of bud

Owner of From The Earth dispensary in Port Huenene talks all things marijuana by Michael Sullivan

michael@vcreporter.com

W

ith two locations, one in Santa Ana and most recently in Port Hueneme, cannabis dispensary From The Earth is creating a foundation of community partnerships while helping marijuana users safely access the natural medicine. Kintu Patel talks about his interest in the cannabis field.

Dr. Rubin utilizes his 35 years of experience as a dentist at CBDual.

Mouthwash for the people Testing facility in search of dental uses for CBD opens in Newbury Park by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

T

he rise in popularity of cannabis-derived products has led to a plethora of CBD- and THC-infused products from coffee to hamburgers. Now, a Newbury Park dentist and entrepreneur is bringing a CBD-infused mouthwash to clinical trials and is seeking volunteers. Greg Rubin, DDS, is the founder of CBDual Biotechnology Corp., owned by publicly traded THC Farmaceuticals. Rubin says that five years ago, he discovered medical features of cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, the non-psychotropic compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. With 35 years’ experience as a dentist and inventor, Rubin says that reading the literature and research on CBD’s proven ability to reduce inflammation and bone loss, as well as its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, lead him to believe that CBD would be a good tool to use in the national battle against gum disease. Periodontal disease is not rare. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in a 2012 study, nearly half of all Americans over the age of 30 have periodontitis, the advanced stage of periodontal disease. CBDual, in partnership with Newbury Park-based 1000 Smiles dental practice, opened its CBD Clinical Research Facility at the Regency Medical Plaza on April 16 with the goal of performing clinical trials on CBD-based dental hygiene products, specifically, a mouthwash. Rubin says that anyone with teeth and gums can volunteer for the clinical trial. Subjects will visit the Newbury Park office to receive their monthly allotment of the mouth wash and return for regular measurements and to record signs of clinical improvement. During a clinical trial, patient compliance is key, says Rubin, and thus supplies of the mouthwash will come equipped with a Bluetooth enabled cap that will report when the bottle is opened and how much is used. Rubin says that research conducted at the facility will be submitted to peer-reviewed scientific journals. “The ultimate goal is to develop a mouthwash with CBD that will allow you as a patient to take care of the problem at home,” said Rubin. “There’s a reason [gum disease] is the most prevalent disease in the United States. Most people think that when you brush and floss, it’s like magic wand, you won’t have a problem and that’s not true.” Gum disease is caused by bacteria. Rubin finds fault in the dentist-recommended deep cleaning every six months, likening it to washing your car only to find the following day dirt has accumulated. “We developed medications based on CBD that will allow you as a consumer to use it and to actually kill bacteria on a daily basis because that’s what we’re after,” said Rubin. Federally, cannabis-derived products are still in a gray-area regarding legality, but the CBDual mouthwash utilizes CBD derived from hemp. In 2018, the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was included in the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill, changing hemp from a controlled substance to an agricultural commodity. Rubin says that all of the pharmaceuticals produced by CBDual will use hemp-derived CBD. “Nobody has ever tested clinically how CBD works on gums,” said Rubin, noting that while animal testing has been performed, there have been no tests on humans. “We’re going to be pioneers.” If you’re interested in joining the wait list for potential inclusion in the clinical trials, visit www.cbdual.com or www.1000smiles.la, or call 805-454-1000.  F

VCReporter: Why did you get involved in this business? Patel: In the early 2010s, the emergence of cannabis shops throughout Los Angeles began to proliferate. Initially, I had no idea what the shops with the little green crosses were. I eventually visited a location to see what the fuss was about and was not impressed with what I saw, but was impressed with the amount of foot traffic the location received. It KINTU PATEL was at that point I took a keen interest in the industry. I recognized how big the cannabis industry had the potential to become and decided to get involved.

I am an advocate for marijuana use. Just like most people, through speaking with family and friends, you would be hard pressed to find where cannabis hasn’t had a positive impact on someone’s life.

What have you learned about marijuana and its health impacts?

Studies have shown that CBD can signifi-

cantly reduce seizure frequency in those who suffer from epilepsy. I’ve personally witnessed how cannabis stimulates the appetite in patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer. I’ve come across opioid users who have used cannabis to get off opioids, helping them to lead healthy, productive lives. I’ve seen people with PTSD who use cannabis to suppress depression. The benefits are endless.

What do you think of ongoing perceptions of “reefer madness?”

There is a common misconception that cannabis users are lazy and are generally unmotivated individuals; however, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Our customers consist of some of the most productive, highly-respected members of society including doctors and lawyers in addition to customers that suffer from medical conditions that need cannabis to maintain a livable quality of life. The negative connotations are slowly being chipped away as reputable cannabis companies like From The Earth emerge. As our industry continues to benefit the economy and society by generating tax revenue and supporting the communities we are in, the negative perceptions will continue to dissipate.

Any additional thoughts you’d like to share on the importance of legal access to marijuana?

Legal access to cannabis is paramount. It isn’t right that some people have to drive over an hour to pick up a product they need. If a pharmacy or grocery store were limited only to certain cities and people had to drive an hour to pick up Advil or a gallon of milk, they would be outraged. The same should go for medical cannabis. F

Experts to explain uses, dispel misconceptions at medical marijuana conference in Ojai BY KATHY JEAN SCHULTZ

ediCannaCon, the first Ojai Medical Cannabis Conference, is set for May 4 in Ojai, and will focus on the use of Medical Marijuana. The conference is presented by the Ojai Herbal Symposium and the Sespe Creek Collective, and will welcome scientists, healthcare professionals and the general public — anyone who wants to learn about the use of medical marijuana.

— April 25, 2019

“The focus is on medical uses of cannabis,” conference organizer Lanny Kaufer told the VCReporter. “We are presenting the latest science from top experts in the field, including two medical doctors, a USC pharmacologist and a nurse.” “With cannabis now legal for recreational sales in Ojai and Port Hueneme, we know that more people are using it to address health issues, in addition to those already licensed to use it with prescriptions, under California Proposition 215, the Medical Marijuana Initiative of 1996,” Kaufer said. “Doctors, other health professionals, and patients or those self-medicating need to quickly learn as much as possible about the science behind the medical uses of cannabis, so that its use not only helps but does no harm. Our presenters know they will be addressing a mixed audience,” he said. Topics the presenters will cover include “Cannabis in Health and Disease, “The Human Endocannabinoid System,” “Medical Uses of Full-Spectrum Cannabis,” “The Entourage Effect of Cannabis,” and “The Safe and Effective Cannabis Patient Experience.”

“These topics are aimed at health professionals, patients and lay people alike — anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of medical use of cannabis including under what conditions it is an appropriate treatment and when it is not,” Kaufer said. Continuing Education Units for acupuncturists will be issued to those attending. One of the conference presenters, Dr. David Bearman, has studied cannabis for decades. Marijuana is made from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant, and “Medicinal use of cannabis is not new,” he told the VCReporter. “It’s been around for 4,000 years. In the 1800s and early 1900s, pharmacists routinely prepared cannabis treatments.” Cannabis has been mentioned in multiple medical books historically, from the Chinese Pao Ting of 2637 BCE to the United States Pharmacopoeia of 18541941. Bearman specializes in drug misuse prevention and treatments, and has treated patients in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties for many years. He is a founder of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine. “We founded AACM to counter-

DR. MARGARET PETERSON act the misuse of cannabis by prescribers who were giving it a bad name,” he said. AACM members are doctors or researchers who study cannabinoids. “All of us are concerned about quality of care. AACM is the gold standard for the education and dissemination of information.” “A common reason to prescribe cannabis is to achieve severe pain relief. Another common reason is to treat anxiety,” Bearman explained. That’s been true throughout history. “In a 1922 pharmacy text, the main reasons listed for its use were pain and anxiety. So that hasn’t changed.” The medical issues and legal confusion surrounding marijuana use are rooted in the fact that the cannabis plant contains a staggering 512 different kinds of molecules. One would need a biochemistry background to actually understand all its various capacities. “It’s very complex,” Bearman said. “The chemical structure of medicinal cannabis is so complicated.” This jam-packed reality has made cannabis an endless source of misunderstanding. For Bearman’s patients, “Cannabis treatments have proven to be useful in treating all kinds of pain and various types of seizures, headaches including migraine, some types of Attention Deficit Disorder, Crohn’s disease, osteoarthritis, insomnia, muscle conditions including multiple sclerosis, PTSD (PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, seen in many battlefield veterans and assault survivors), and anything involving inflammation.” The reason for this array of treatments is that cannabis affects the human endocannabinoid system, “the larg-

MediCannaCon, the first Ojai Medical Cannabis Conference, will take place on Saturday, May 4, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ojai Valley Woman’s Club, 441 E. Ojai Avenue in Ojai. Registration is $125 in advance until May 3, and $145 at the door on May 4. Advance tickets can only be purchased through the website or by phone. Hosted by the Ojai Herbal Symposium and Sespe Creek Collective, the conference is intended for both healthcare professionals and the general public. Medical experts will present the latest scientific findings about medical cannabis. There will be four presenters: Margaret Peterson, M.D.; David Bearman, M.D.; James D. Adams, Ph.D.; and Susan Marks, RN, BSN, PHN. Topics will include “Cannabis in Health and Disease,” “The Human Endocannabinoid System,”

est neurotransmitter system in the human brain,” Bearman explained. The brain’s endocannabinoid system is connected to many body parts and therefore to a variety of diseases and injuries. This is why marijuana treatments are so wide-ranging. Bearman also notes that medical marijuana is helpful for some cases of autism. Of its 512 different molecules, the plant’s elements that are most familiar to the general public are tetrahydrocannabinol, called THC; and cannabidiol, or CBD. “There is an enormous range of therapeutic uses,” Bearman said. THC and CBD do not impact brain cells in the same way — they have distinct differences. THC has psychoactive effects that leave users feeling impaired, or “high,” due to its mindaltering capacity. In contrast, CBD is not mind-altering. With regard to dosage, Bearman will be talking at the conference about why “One size does not fit all.” An individual person’s problematic condition and their health determine dosage. “For some patients, a capsule that is one-half THC and one-half CBD is best. For severe pain and muscle spasm, for example, a higher percentage of THC is effective. Cancer patients are often taking the highest dose of THC. Some patients do not like THC because it leaves them feeling disoriented, and they prefer higher doses of CBD, or CDB alone with no THC. The percentage of THC and CBD, within one prescription, always depends on the individual person.” Conference presenter Susan Marks, RN, BSN, PHN, is the founder of Nurse Susan in Los Angeles, and of the DearNurseSusan.com website. She has been advising and treating patients using medical marijuana for three years. “At the conference, I’ll be talking about the patient experience,” she told the VCReporter. “I work with patients’ symptoms and diseases to figure out the best protocol for each individual.” This includes determining the best dosage, the most effective type of cannabinoid, assessing any other medications they take for possible interactions and the best route of administration. She will be addressing common misconceptions, of which there are many. “It is possible to use cannabinoids in a way that does not leave you impaired or intoxicated,” Marks said. “A common misconception is that you have to get high, and that happens with only one of more than 100 different cannabinoids. “There are many common misunderstandings about cannabis,” she said. “People ask me, ‘Do I have to smoke it?’ But there are so many ways it can be useful while not smoking it.” This is why prescribing the best route of administration for each patient is part of her practice. Swallowing cannabis as food or rubbing it on the skin are just two ways it can be used. Conference presenter Dr. James David Adams is a USC Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences. In a recent news article he authored, he describes medical marijuana’s numerous and complicated uses as something “we have only begun to explore.” To harness its full potential, “Society needs to overcome misconceptions about marijuana and look at what research clearly says about the medical value,” he writes. At the conference he will be explaining that so far, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved only a few prescription drugs that come from marijuana components, including some useful for treating nausea, multiple sclerosis and some types of epilepsy.

ACUPUNCTURISTS, NOTE:

The conference will offer Continuing Education Units for acupuncture. The conference is Continuing Education Provider #1526 as designated by the California Acupuncture Board. All five MediCannaCon events are approved for Category 1 credit; 1.5 units for Dr. Bearman’s presentation; and 1 unit each for the other presentations, totaling 5.5 CEUs. Certificates documenting CEUs earned will be issued at conference completion. Email Info@OjaiHerbal.org for further information.

Other conditions he describes as treatable with medical marijuana include cancer-induced nausea, Type 2 diabetes, two types of epilepsy, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, osteoarthritis, sleep disorders and PTSD. Like other conference presenters, Adams will discuss how THC, the ingredient that makes people high, impacts neurotransmitters in the brain. The human brain contains cannabinoid receptors, and “THC works by hijacking these natural cannabinoid receptors, triggering a profound high,” Adams writes. He also explains how recreational marijuana can be misused. For example, he sees the number of Marijuana Hyperemesis Syndrome cases rising. “Some people vomit uncontrollably after smoking marijuana regularly,” Adams writes. In addition, high levels of THC can cause anxiety and even psychosis. MHS can be treated with capsaicin, which is a nonprescription cream available at pharmacies. Although the FDA has approved a few prescription drugs that come from marijuana components, “The FDA does not

recognize marijuana as a legal product,” Adams writes. This makes funding for research difficult to find. The conference will cover very recent research findings. “One promising area is cannabis treatments for various cancers,” Bearman said. One of the new investigations is into glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer. In one study, patients receiving a cannabinoid treatment lived 180 days longer than is typical. “If Sen. John McCain had received this treatment,” Bearman said, “It’s possible Brett Kavanaugh would not be a Supreme Court judge.” ✦

hile Californians have enjoyed many freedoms since cannabis was legalized for adult use, in other parts of the country, people are still serving life sentences for cannabisrelated crimes. “It’s ridiculous,” said Chelsea Sutula, president of the Sespe Creek Collective in Ojai. “We need to shine a light on this issue and get these people out of prison as part of a bigger criminal justice reform effort that people of all political backgrounds agree needs to happen.” Deedee Kirkwood, of Camarillo, has been corresponding with several of these inmates for years, and through a new Pot Lifer Museum at Sespe Creek Collective, “we can read a little bit about them, the injustices they have faced, their efforts to make a positive difference even from the confines of prison, and how we can take simple steps to make a small difference in their lives now,” Sutula said. The Pot Lifer Museum, located in a dedicat-

ed space at Sespe Creek Collective, showcases a dozen people serving life sentences for nonviolent cannabis crimes. Materials were sourced from the personal collection of Kirkwood — also known as the Pot Fairy — who has long been nurturing meaningful relationships with people serving these life sentences. On the back wall is a partial gallery of known pot lifers. Hanging from chains in the center of the room are booklets that tell a little bit about 11 of these inmates, including letters written from prison and media articles about them. “There is a table with pre-written letters you can sign and send requesting clemency from President Trump — we will stamp them for you,” Sutula said. Additionally, there are original oil paintings and greeting cards for sale by one pot lifer, Michael Pelletier, a paraplegic who taught himself to paint in prison. Other stories told through the eyes of Kirkwood and her Pot Lifer pen pals are also on display. “The biggest misunderstanding is in the

Deedee Kirkwood and Chelsea Sutula. judgment that these individuals must have done something horrific besides just some version of a pot violation to receive a life sentence,” Kirkwood said. “What I have found to be horrific are the stories of gross injustice each one has to tell as murderers, rapists and child molesters are parole eligible and get released instead of them.” The truth is that many of these individuals are behind bars for life because they did not snitch and they did not cooperate with plea bargains, Kirkwood emphasized. “Instead they stood by their principles and were crushed by their integrity, an otherwise lost virtue,” Kirkwood said. “I honor the strength, courage and moral fiber of these individuals as they are forced to endure the nightmares they are living for a miracle plant.”

According to Sutula, these people are largely victims of multiple broken systems and, in the end, people are profiting from their incarceration. “In reality, there is wide acknowledgement that our prison system needs serious reform,” Sutula noted. “Both the ACLU and Trump administration support the FIRST STEP [Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person] Act to reform outdated mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines. Whatever crimes these people may have been convicted of, the punishment does not fit the crime. The punishment is cruel and excessive.” In conjunction with the museum, the Pot Fairy Gift Shop gives patrons an opportunity to support pot lifers. For instance, handmade handbags, tees, necklaces and aprons are available, with proceeds from all purchases going to prisoners’ commissary accounts. “One hundred percent of the donations from purchases of these items are put on pot lifers’ commissary accounts for necessities like soap, combs, toothbrushes, phone calls home, postage stamps, emails and palatable water,” Kirkwood said. She noted that Fate Winslow #112270 in Angola, Louisiana, has a job of cleaning up the dorm, earning him $.03 an hour, which adds up to $.80 a week. “In three weeks he can afford a jar of peanut butter to make it through the hard meals,” Kirkwood said. “You can only imagine the positive impact on these pot lifers when they receive a donation and to know they are not forgotten.” “As pot lifer Michael Pelletier says, ‘having a life sentence is a feeling of dying every day. It’s worse than death that happens one time. It’s a living death’,” Kirkwood said. The ultimate goal of the museum is to call attention to the problem, advocate for their life sentences to be commuted, and get them out of jail, Sutula said. “And in the meantime help them survive being there,” she added. “Give them hope that they are not forgotten.” Kirkwood, who is 70 years old, said, “all my life, I’ve been searching for my higher calling. . . . Recently the search ended when I discovered there are human beings today serving life sentences for cannabis-only related offenses. These offenses were nonviolent and void of a victim or family of any victim.” As a pot smoker for 50 years, “this sudden awareness that someone will die in prison for the same miracle plant that nurtures my wellbeing made me outraged,” she emphasized. “The outrage never subsided, which resulted in a passion and compassion that has propelled me to create the Pot Lifer Museum and Pot Fairy Gift Shop. This museum is one way I’ve come up with to make public this secret of the criminal justice system and join forces with other freedom fighters to get them home free.” ✦ The Pot Lifer Museum is located inside Sespe Creek Collective, 408 Bryant Circle, suite C, in Ojai. Guests must be 21+ with a valid ID or 18+ with a valid recommendation to enter. For more information visit www.sespe.org.

Quality over quantity NYC hardcore band Show Me The Body packs a punch in a short show by Alan Sculley for Last Word Features

D

on’t go to see Show Me The Body expecting some sort of Springsteenesque show that rocks on for three hours or more. The New York City-based trio doesn’t stay on stage much longer than a half hour, which on the current tour is enough time to play Dog Whistle, the new Show Me The Body album, in its entirety, plus a couple of older tunes. “We still haven’t done sets like over 35 minutes. We really like to keep it short,” frontman Julian Cashwan Pratt said in a mid-April phone interview. “Before, whenever we got to Europe, Europeans are, just because I think they’re less exposed to American hardcore or punk music, they’re always like ‘Oh my God, you only played for 30 minutes!’ That can be funny. So we got a really cool tour manager out in France, who like pulls up with us to all of our festivals and argues with all the French promoters, [telling the promoters] ‘If they played more, they’d die.’ He’s pretty cool. It’s always a battle of doing more, but we only do what the f*** we can.” It would be a mistake, though, to consider the brevity of a Show Me The Body concert a sign that the band members aren’t invested in their music or their fan base. For one thing, the shows are physically

demanding, and the sonic overload of the music could take a toll on audiences, too, if the shows lasted longer. And as Pratt explained, the guys in Show Me The Body want nothing more than to create a community of fans that share the kind of strong connection to the band that acts like the Grateful Dead, Slayer or 311 enjoy with their fan bases. Pratt provided an example of this ethic early in the interview, noting he would soon join his bandmates, Harlan Steed and Noah Cohen-Corbett, for a drive from Utah to Boise, Idaho, for a gig that wasn’t initially on the schedule. “We would have an off day, but some kid hit us up and kind of figured we’d be driving through Idaho,” Pratt explained. “We drove through Idaho, I guess, twice [before] now just to get to California. The kid hit us up and was like ‘Yo, you’re probably going to be near Boise. If you want to like come and play this punk house we have out here . . .’ So we said yeah, because we do a lot of club shows now and

— Julian Cashwan Pratt have a booking agent and stuff. But it really is always the kids who really come through with the best-feeling stuff, you know what I mean? You book a show through a kid and he’s got him and his friends and they’re all super down to go [to the show] and tell all their homies. So we still try to do that as much as possible.” In fact, Pratt and his bandmates so enjoy getting up close and personal with fans that during the years when the group was playing around New York City, many of the gigs weren’t in clubs, but for instance, under bridge overpasses, alleys, in basements — pretty much any place where the group could set up and gather together a group of people to share in the music and the band’s messages of inclusion, tolerance and respect. Pratt and Steed, now in their mid-20s, started Show Me The Body when they were just starting high school. From the beginning, they wanted to create a sound they could call their own. “This whole project is really like me and him putting our brains together and establishing a vocabulary, like a new language, togeth-

er,” Pratt said. “It makes us both stronger, learning a lot from each other.” Always fans of hardcore, punk and hiphop, those influences have filtered through the band’s music since the early days when Gabriel Millman was the drummer. He left Show Me The Body five years ago (although Millman still serves as in-house producer for the group), with Cohen-Corbett taking over on drums. But those styles get re-shaped — often radically — by the way the trio creates sound in the studio. Pratt primarily plays banjo, but you’ll only hear moments here and there that sound like that instrument across the three Show Me The Body releases — the albums Body War (2016) and Dog Whistle and the 2017 mixtape, Corpus I. The same can be said for Steed’s bass. Using pedals, distortion, feedback, computer programming and other means to manipulate the usual tones of banjo, bass and other instruments, the finished songs often feature walls of thick, grainy sound that serve as backdrops under the riffs and other instrumental parts that bring a measure of melody to the songs. Meanwhile, Pratt’s urgent, sometimes unhinged vocals and Cohen-Corbett’s aggressive drumming add passion and energy to songs that are generally aggressive, dissonant and just plain sludgy and noisy — yet fascinating and immersive at the same time. Pratt feels that with Dog Whistle, Show Me The Body took an important step forward in their musical development. Where on the previous releases, certain songs were identifiable as punk, hip-hop or hardcore, the new album blends those styles more seamlessly into a sound that isn’t so definable and is considerably more original and unique. “This album actually has more samples and more electronics on it than Body War,” Pratt explained. “But the thing about it is that it’s all interwoven, I think, a lot more and a lot better than on Body War.” Even with all of the sonic manipulation, Pratt said the group can replicate their songs quite faithfully on stage. “When we record, we don’t do anything we wouldn’t be able to do live. That’s a big component while we’re recording. It’s not just about replication, but it’s sort of like keeping a human element on the record,” he said. “Even when the music . . . becomes post-human, like electronic or something like that, we always try to keep the element of humanity there so that it can be replicated in a human situation.” The band’s music and work ethic appear to be paying off as Show Me The Body crosses the country on the current first leg of touring in support of Dog Whistle. And it’s drawing better than ever at the shows. “We don’t play straight-ahead hardcore or punk or electronic music. We really do our own thing. So that made our growing process a lot longer than other bands,” Pratt said. “But it really feels wonderful because after this album, we’re starting to, like, pack out 300-person rooms, which is not crazy, but it’s a big deal for us. It really feels great to be really able to cultivate like our own community of fans. “This is the best tour we’ve ever headlined,” he said. “We’re getting the best response we’ve F ever gotten in America, that’s for sure.” Show Me The Body performs with Enemy on Thursday, April 25, at 7 p.m at The Tavern, 211 E. Santa Clara St., Ventura, 805-643-3264, thetavernvta.com. For tickets and more information, visit Show Me The Body on Facebook or at corpus. nyc/smtb.

Being that it was somewhat gloomy, the so-called Rainbow Bowls caught my attention. Vietnamese Pho is offered here in two iterations, traditional with a beef bone broth or with a vegan broth ($12).

performed the minimum required regimen of exercise for the day, we also ordered from the small plates menu. The Muhummara ($8) is a Middle Eastern roasted red pepper dip served with house pickles and your choice of naan (traditional or vegan and gluten-free). To round-out the meal, we chose from the Japanese grill (Yakitori) inspired menu the veg/tofu skewer ($2.50) and shishito peppers skewer ($2). I also chose one of Sage’s many elixirs: a Calm Spirit. The beverage is a concoction made with your choice of milk (dairy, coconut or almond), fat (coconut oil, cocoa butter or ghee) and sweetener (coconut sugar, honey or monkfruit). We managed to find a table and patiently waited for our food, knowing that everything was made to order. We didn’t have to wait long. The Muhummara arrived promptly alongside the skewers. The roasted red pepper dip paired with Sage’s freshly made naan was a revelation, leading me to ask where had this dip been all of my life? The shishito peppers were perfectly charred, served with a splash of lemon and ponzu, and the veggie skewers were plump with farm-fresh mushrooms and crispy tofu. Our respective soups came next. The hot pot had been described as vegetarian on the menu, owing to egg in the homemade noodles. Knowing what I know about kimchi, however, I asked the chef if fish sauce or shrimp were used in its making. Neither, he told me. Sage makes a vegan kimchi by hand-rubbing Napa cabbage and utilizing apples to give it a traditional taste. Consider it a victory for Sage: The kimchi was spot-on and delicious, mingling in the hot broth with crunchy radish and plump noodles. The pho was a hit as well, a subtle broth with just enough heat from the jalapeño to keep it honest. There’s an option to add a poached egg for $2, if you’re looking to try Sage’s locally sourced, grain-fed options. Sage offers a plethora of brunch and breakfast items as well, from biscuits and gravy ($8) to vegan garnachas ($9) topped with black beans and vegan chorizo. Sage’s menu picks and chooses items from across the globe and does so without seeming overburdened. It takes a delicate touch to fulfill the promise of its name, “mindful meals.” Perhaps adding memorable to the name would be well suited, as I still cannot stop thinking about how good the kimchi was and that Muhummara still floats around in my dreams. ♦

ADVICE GODDESS 

Rags against The Machine

I’

m a slim woman in my early 40s — successful in my field — and I am always in jeans, a vintage ripped T-shirt, and boots. I mean, ALWAYS. Granted, I have an extremely expensive handbag and perfectly highlighted blonde hair, and I always wear winged eyeliner. My friends say that going “underdressed” like this is disrespectful and inappropriate for (corporate-type) business meetings. Are they right, or is rocking your own thing no matter what a sign of confidence? (P.S. I’d kill myself before I’d wear a blazer.) —Punk Rock Corporate There’s actually something to be said for a person who goes into an important business meeting dressed

by amy alkon like one of their LinkedIn endorsements is “Aggressive Panhandling.” Sure, to a lot of people, it looks like career suicide in progress. However, research by Harvard Business School’s Francesca Gino suggests that rebelling against norms for business attire can make you come off as higher status than people who dress all junior CEO. Gino ran a number of experiments that led her to this conclusion, but my favorite is from a seminar on negotiations she taught at Harvard to two different groups of bigwigs in business, government and philanthropy. For each session, she dressed in the requisite “business boring” — a dark blue Hugo Boss suit and a white silk blouse. But then, for her second session, she paired this outfit with a pair of red Converse high-tops. As she made her way to the classroom, a few fellow professors did give her the WTF-eye. However, seminar participants, surveyed after each session, guessed that she was higher in status and had a pricier consulting rate when she was wearing the red sneaks. Gino explains that a person who is seen to be deliberately violating workplace wardrobe norms sends a message that they are so powerful that they can shrug off the potential costs of not following convention.

Anthropologists and zoologists call this a costly signal: a trait or behavior that’s so wastefully extravagant and/or survival-threatening that only the highest-quality, most mojo-rific people or critters could afford to display it. This, in turn, suggests to observers (whether predators or predatory executives) that it’s more likely to be legit — and not false advertising. So, it seems your dressing all hobo honcho could actually ramp up your status in others’ eyes. And let’s say someone suspects you’re dressing this way because you’ve lost it

prised if, post-meeting, as you’re making a call on a bench outside the building, two kindly old ladies drop a Ziploc in your lap with socks, a granola bar, and directions to the nearest shelters.

Eye will always love you I’ve long been a “Shallow Hal,” attracted to women’s youth and physical beauty and less concerned with integrity. Not surprisingly, I keep getting into relationships with women who aren’t very good people. How can I stop being so superficial? —Man With Eyes

Rebelling against norms for business attire can make you come off as higher status than people who dress all junior CEO. on some level — psychologically or financially. Gino writes in her book Rebel Talent that to signal status, it’s critical that people believe an individual is “consciously choosing not to conform” and willing to assume the possible costs of that. Well, with that pricey handbag (plus the megabucks highlights and Instagram influencer winged eyeliner), you swat away any suspicions that your poorgeoisie-wear reflects actual impoverishment. Just don’t be sur-

It isn’t wrong to initially be looks-driven: “Now, she’s a woman I wanna have sex with!” — as opposed to “Now, she’s a woman I wanna debate on Jeremy Bentham’s views on utilitarianism!” Also, you should no more feel guilty for being drawn to young women than you would for having your taste buds be more “All aboard, baby!” for chocolate cake than for a “burger” made out of broccolini. This preference evolved to solve the “How do I pass on my genes?” problem for our male ancestors. (And no, the answer to that would not have been “Date grannies!”) However, it helps to understand what psychologist Daniel Kahneman

has explained as our two thinking systems — fast and slow. Our fast system is emotion-driven, rising up automatically, and is often home to toddler-like demands: “Gimme cake!” Our slow system, the home of rational thought, needs to be forced to do its job — examining our impulses and assessing whether it’s wise for us to run with them. In other words, your problem comes from running with your initial impulse without putting it through the Department of Reasoning. Though it’s natural to be led by your eyes, you need to implement a next step — assessing the character of these foxerellas before you turn them into girlfriends. (This starts with generating standards so you can determine whether a woman meets or misses them.) In short, when you tell some babe, “Honey, everything looks good on you!” one would hope that you don’t eventually learn whether “everything” includes a police-issued spit mask.  ♦ (c)2019, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

In the U.S., the day after Thanksgiving typically features a spectacular shopping orgy. On “Black Friday,” stores sell their products at steep discounts and consumers spend their money extravagantly. But the creators of the game Cards Against Humanity have consistently satirized the tradition. In 2013, for example, they staged a Black Friday “anti-sale,” for which they raised their prices. The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to try something similar. Is it possible you’re undercharging for your products and services and skills? If so, consider asking for more. Reassess your true worth and seek appropriate rewards.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

Whether or not you believe in magic, magic believes in you right now. Will you take advantage of the fancy gifts it has to offer? I guess it’s possible that you’re not interested in seeing deeper into the secret hearts of those you care for. Maybe you’ll go “ho-hum” when shown how to recognize a half-hidden opportunity that could bring vitalizing changes. And you may think it’s not very practical to romance the fire and the water at the same time. But if you’re interested, all that good stuff will be available for you. P.S. To maximize the effects of the magic, believe in it.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

In 1815, the most ferocious volcanic eruption in human history exploded from Mount Tambora in what’s now known as Indonesia. It flung gas and ash all over the planet, causing weird weather for three years. Sunlight dimmed, temperatures plummeted, skies were tumultuous, and intense storms proliferated. Yet these conditions ignited the imagination of author Mary Shelley, inspiring her to write what was to become her most notable work, Frankenstein. I

— April 25, 2019

by rob brezsny

suspect that you, too, will ultimately generate at least one productive marvel in response to the unusual events of the coming weeks.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

For over 40 years, Cancerian musician Carlos Santana has made music that blends rock and roll with Latin and African rhythms. In the early years, his creations sold well, but by the mid-1980s his commercial success declined. For a decade, he floundered. His fortunes began to improve after a spectacular meditation session. Santana says he was contacted by the archangel Metatron, who told him how to generate material for a new album. The result was Supernatural, which sold 30 million copies and won nine Grammy Awards. I mention this, Cancerian, because I suspect that you could soon experience a more modest but still rousing variation of Santana’s visitation. Are you interested? If so, the next seven weeks will be a good time to seek it out—and be very receptive to its possibility.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

“Expergefactor” is an old English word that has fallen out of use. In its original sense, it meant something that wakes you up, like an alarm clock or thunderstorm or your partner’s snoring. But I want to revive “expergefactor” and expand its meaning. In its new version, it will refer to an exciting possibility or beloved goal that consistently motivates you to spring out of bed in the morning and get your day started. Your expergefactor could be an adventure you’re planning or a masterpiece you’re working on or a relationship that fills you with curiosity and enchantment. In my astrological opinion, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to identify and fine-tune an expergefactor that will serve you well for a long time.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

We live in a cultural moment when satire, sarcasm, cynicism, and irony are prized as supreme emblems of intelligence. If you say that you value sincerity and earnestness, you risk being considered naive and unsophisticated. Nevertheless, the current astrological omens suggest that you will generate good fortune for yourself in the coming weeks by making liberal use of sincerity and earnestness. So please try not to fall into the easy trap of relying on satire, sarcasm, cynicism and irony to express yourself. As much as is practical, be kindly frank and compassionately truthful and empathetically genuine. (P.S. It’s a strategy that will serve your selfish aims quite well.)

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

“Most people don’t find their creativity,” mourned Libran author Truman Capote. “There are more unsung geniuses that don’t even know they have great talent.” If that describes you even a little bit, I’m happy to let you know that you’re close to stumbling upon events and insights that could change that. If you respond to the prompts of these unexpected openings, you will rouse a partially dormant aspect of your genius, as well as a half-inert stash of creativity and a semi-latent cache of imaginativity.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Do you know the word “sfumato”? Its literal meaning in Italian is “smoked.” When used to describe a painting, it refers to blurred borders between objects or fuzzy transitions between areas of different colors. All the forms are soft and hazy. I bring this to your attention because I suspect the coming weeks will be a sfumato-like time for you. You may find it a challenge to make precise distinctions. Future and past may overlap, as well as beginnings and endings. That doesn’t have to be a problem as

long as you’re willing to go with the amorphous flow. In fact, it could even be pleasurable and useful. You might be able to connect with influences from which you’ve previously been shut off. You could blend your energies together better with people who’ve been unavailable.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

“You have a right to experiment with your life,” declared author Anaïs Nin. I agree. You don’t necessarily have to be what you started out to be. You can change your mind about goals that you may at one time have thought were permanent. I suspect you could be at one of these pivot points right now, Sagittarius. Are there any experiments you’d like to try? If so, keep in mind this further counsel from Nin. It’s possible “you will make mistakes. And they are right, too.”

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

You have one main task to accomplish in the coming weeks, Capricorn. It’ll be simple and natural if you devote yourself to it wholeheartedly. The only way it could possibly become complicated and challenging is if you allow your focus to be diffused by less important matters. Ready for your assignment? It’s articulated in this poem by Rupi Kaur: “bloom beautifully / dangerously / loudly / bloom softly / however you need / just bloom.”

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

When the forces of the Roman empire occupied the British Isles from the years 43 to 410, they built 2,000 miles of roads. Their methods were sophisticated. That’s why few new roads were built in England until the eighteenth century, and many of the same paths are still visible and available today. In this spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I recommend that you make good use of an old system or network in the coming weeks. This is one time when

the past has blessings to offer the future.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

“I’m not enigmatic and intriguing enough,” writes a Piscean blogger named RiddleMaster. “I really must work harder. Maybe I’ll start wearing ankle-length black leather coats, billowing silk scarves imprinted with alchemical symbols, and wide-brimmed hats. I’ll listen to Cambodian folk songs and read rare books in ancient Sanskrit. When someone dares to speak to me, I’ll utter cryptic declarations like, ‘The prophecies will be fulfilled soon enough.’ “ I understand RiddleMaster’s feelings. You Pisceans need mystery almost as much as you need food. But I believe you should set aside that drive for a few weeks. The time has come for you to show the world who you are with crisp candor. Homework: Compose an exciting prayer in which you ask for something you’re not “supposed” to. FreeWillAstrology.com

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1404 SOUTH F STREET, OXNARD, CA 93033 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $394,450.09 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the prop-

erty itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

Before you choose a treatment program, see why TRIBE was voted Best Rehab in Ventura County Full and partial day programs for mental health and substance use disorders

“Our daughter found Tribe, but a short while after starting she walked out the door late one night. The director called us and our hearts sank. We asked if she was kicked out. “We don’t kick out alcoholics for alcoholic behavior,” she said. Nancy stood by her words and touched our hearts.” Jill O., Oxnard “The staff is caring, inclusive, understanding and yet totally direct, transparent and candid. I LOVE being a part of this Tribe!” Jamie L., Canyon Country “After 10 years of multiple “rehab” facilities and lots and lots of money wasted, FINALLY found a place that works!” Jon M., Westlake Village “During the most painful and dangerous turn in our son’s journey, Tribe offered what I’ve not seen in other programs – the unbridled presence of genuine Love that guides their professional process. As a licensed therapist for over 30 years, I found this healing bridge of love built a stronger connection with his authentic self.” Gavin F., Ventura “We are seeing results with Tribe! So proud of our daughter.” Pam H., Canyon Country “I came completely broken internally and externally. I’ve struggled with substance abuse issues and mental health issues all of my life and have been to several programs that never seemed to rehabilitate the part of me that needed the most care, and that was love.” Merry M., Camarillo

“Our 30-year old son has conquered his 12 year addiction to alcohol! Tribe is a strong program with a lot of love, medicine and intense immersion in advanced techniques.” L. B., Malibu “After attending multiple rehabs, Tribe is the place that worked for me. I’m currently 518 days sober. Nancy helped my family understand the disease process in depth, and she reconnected me with my sister and my parents. Today I have genuine relationships with my immediate family, something I could never have imagined prior to Tribe.” Kathryn H, Carpinteria “My son thrived during his stay at Tribe. The atmosphere, meetings, healthy living and activities provided the conditions necessary for a healthy recovery.” J.T., Mission Viejo “Addiction is messy and far from perfect…I owe Nancy my life. The individualized care and therapy is incomparable. EMDR, individual and family sessions, music and art therapy, psycho education by PhD holders. I used to not be able to leave my house, now I’m a fully functioning, contributing member of society.” Debbie D., Ventura “Out of 11 rehabs, finally my son has found a program and “home” that works.” Melissa S., Arroyo Grande “The 3-day workshop with clients and their families is a life changing event.” Roberta S., Ventura

“The problem is not always about drug addiction, but about self-esteem.” Jason J., Ventura “Thanks so much TRIBE for helping us get our wonderful son back to sanity!” Liz B., Malibu “Tribe has one of the most innovative approaches to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.” Elizabeth K., Santa Cruz “I have seen the magic of hope alive in this program and would trust them with my life. Tribe is a gift to our community.” Jen M., Manhattan Beach “Nancy is able to pull the covers off the client, exposing the co-occurring mental illness that usually is the source of addiction. Tribe has created an environment of containment that is safe, caring and filled with possibilities for growth. Thank you Tribe! Trudie T., Ojai

“Life changing.” Staci C., Thousand Oaks

“I don’t know where or what status I would be in if we did not seek help and how lucky are we to find the Tribe family.” Upu L., Gardena

“My son has been to many rehabs, and does well while in a structured environment. The problem is when he gets out. Tribe taught my son how to adjust to life clean and sober. They got him where he needed to be to succeed. Thank you Tribe.” Teri B., Placentia
