County health pulls CBD products from local store

By The Acorn Staff | April 25, 2019

After suffering a concussion in January, Conejo Valley resident Christine Robert turned to cannabidiol, a cannabis derivative, to help her heal. She had seen research that looked promising, and use of the drug produced the results she was looking for.

Westlake producer speaks out

By The Acorn Staff | April 25, 2019

It is a problem

By The Acorn Staff | April 25, 2019

I was somewhat dismayed and concerned about this letter to the paper. I couldn’t fathom a reason why Mr. Robinson would be so concerned about banning plastic straws. He was curious about the quote, “If human behaviors don’t change by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean by volume than fish.” Sources for this statement and other facts […]

About cheating

By The Acorn Staff | April 25, 2019

I took the editorial staff’s advice and read John DeLuca’s letter to the editor last week. I applaud the general theme of ethics and manners, but am concerned about the severity of alleged crimes. Amusement park line cutting, parents helping with their child’s homework, restaurant reservation fudging, cheating on a golf scorecard, resume inflation, etc., all seem pretty tame compared […]
