Poetry That Will Empower and Inspire You

Salt Water, the new poetry collection by Brianna Wiest, is a must-have book on your journey to healing. Grab a cup of tea and let these essential, purifying prose calm your mind and filter out the noise.

Salt Water is a slow deep breath, in and out. It sits in a new genre of poetry, somewhere between artistic self-expression and candid self-help. It is a meditation on acceptance, growth, and what it means to be human. Salt Water is the note you wrote to yourself years ago, which you find again when you most need it, that reminds you ‘it’s going to be okay.’”
—Lee Crutchley, Author of “How To Be Happy, Or At Least Less Sad”

Wikileaf: Making it easier to find weed 💚

With Wikileaf I can pull up a map of my location and compare prices at dispensaries near me. When I first downloaded the app, I used it to read reviews and found a new shop that is now the only one I will go to when I’m at home.

I may not have discovered this discrepancy on my own, and it’s nice there finally is a Yelp for weed. 💚
