Tarot is both an eclectic and deep system of divination.  Join Coner for a general discussion of Tarot including how to do simple readings.

The Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act, commonly referred to as the RAVE Act, gives federal authorities the power to significantly fine an event for knowingly and “intentionally profiting” from drug use.  This vague language has been interpreted to mean that festival organizers cannot provide drug education or safety services.  Some argue that this contributes to deaths from ecstasy and other drug-related complications.
