Montclair welcomes NJ's first pot dispensary

By GEOFF MULVIHILL | Associated Press

MONTCLAIR, N.J. (AP) - It's no surprise that the town of Montclair is on the verge of being the first New Jersey community with a legal medical marijuana dispensary.

The famously liberal New York City suburb of 38,000 is sometimes called "the Upper West Side of New Jersey." But it also has the feel of other well-heeled bohemian spots such as Boulder, Colo., and Berkeley, Calif., where medical marijuana has long been available.

People who live and work in Montclair have been very mellow about the prospect of a pot dispensary. It's going to open in the middle of the main drag, next door to an abortion clinic and three doors from a smoke shop.

The five other nonprofit groups in New Jersey with permission to provide medical marijuana have struggled to find homes.

    The truth about lying

    "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." That whopper nearly cost Bill Clinton his presidency. But most of our lies history ignores. And for that, reason humans everywhere will probably go right on telling them. Americans fib hundreds of millions of times every day, at an estimated 1.67 lies per person, according to a Michigan State study. But to fabricate a lie, our minds and bodies must work harder than they would to tell a truth they already know.

    Why we yawn

    We all yawn, but why we do it has long been a mysterious phenomenon. Turns out scientists have disproved the old "getting oxygen to our brain" theory. While we often yawn when we're sleepy, it may not be the sleepiness that's causing the yawn. "It's not surprising that there's a heightened level of yawning associated with being sleepy," says Dr. Andrew Gallup, an assistant professor of psychology at SUNY Oneonta and a leading researcher on the subject of yawning.
