Shortly after his diagnosis, frustrated by the side effects of pharmaceutical medications he said turned him into a "zombie," he started using medical marijuana to treat his symptoms.

"I was able to eat again; I could deal with the pain and not have to be completely removed from social situations," the San Diego resident told The Huffington Post. "It helped me alleviate my problems without all the complications."

Pot bank decision appears headed to Fed board

The decision of whether a Colorado credit union created just for the marijuana industry can open its doors ultimately could come from the nation's top financial policymakers.

Although the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System in Washington, D.C., typically does not involve itself with local issues handled by the nation's 12 regional reserve banks, a bank solely for marijuana money appears to be a different matter.

Whether the state-chartered Fourth Corner Credit Union gains a critical master account to operate is a determination already removed from bureaucratic hands at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, the regional banking home of several states, including Colorado, according to several people familiar with the process.

World’s First Hemp Plane To Take Off From Kitty Hawk

Canadian company Hempearth is producing the world’s first hemp plane. That’s right, an aircraft made almost entirely out of hemp. At least 75% of the plane – wings, seats, pillows, and outer shell – will be built from hemp. And, it’ll run completely on hemp-bio fuel. (Note: Henry Ford’s first Model-T car was built to run on hemp gasoline and partly constructed from hemp!) Hempearth says the plane is 2 to 3 times less expensive to fabricate than one made of fiberglass. And it’s more energy efficient to make.

This infographic shows your life — in weeks

Tim Urban has created a wonderful series of infographics over at "Wait But Why."

The graphics illustrate "your life in weeks."

If you're an American male and you make it to the average life expectancy of just over 76 years, you'll live about 3,962 weeks.

If you're a American female, you'll probably live longer — about 81 and a quarter years, or 4,225 weeks.

Either way, it's startling to see all those weeks laid out in a single chart. And it's sobering to see how relatively few of them you probably have left.

Here, for example, is Urban's chart of the "life of the typical American."

Each row is a year. Each dot in each row is a week.
