There is something to please everyone at the Oregon Coast Learning Institute’s Tuesday, Nov. 14, session, with cannabis, diamonds and money all on the agenda.

At 10 am, in “Cannabis 101,” Doctors Rachel and Janice Knox will show how cannabis can be the answer to many medical problems and make the case for it to be considered as a first-line medication. The presentation promises to show how the application of cannabis has blown the roof off neurophysiology, pharmacology and biochemistry.

At 1 pm, Kathryn Heater, owner of Diamonds by the Sea, will share her story of being the first woman to enter the De Beers house in Brussels. She will describe the diamond-cutting world, where diamonds come from and how prices are structured.

Rounding out the day’s offerings at 2 pm, Lou Boudreau will present “Money, Money, Money!,” asking fundamental questions, such as: What is it? When did it start? How does it exist and what is its future?

The Oregon Coast Learning Institute meets each Tuesday at Salishan Spa and Golf Resort, located east of the traffic light at Gleneden Beach.

Dues of $75 cover all of the 12 Tuesdays in the fall semester, and guests are always welcome to attend a full day’s presentations for free.

• Doctors Rachel and Janice Knox will also give a presentation on the medical uses of cannabis at the Newport 60 + Activity Center on Monday, Nov. 13.

The presentation, which is free and open to all, will run from 6 to 8 pm at 20 S.E. Second Street. For more information, call 541-265-9617.
