Malibu resident Jadwiga Kofin suffers from anxiety and intermittent restless legs and hands. These ailments cause her distress and the only way she has been able to get relief from these symptoms has been with medical marijuana.
“It’s changed my life completely,” Kofin said. “I’d probably be a little ball of anxiety and chaos if it wasn’t for marijuana in my life.”
Kofin has had to travel to other cities such as Venice to get what she calls her medicine. But that changed last week with the grand opening of a marijuana dispensary where she lives.

Ciara, Amber and Jade Collins sat silent in the car. Palpable anxiety filled the air between the triplets — a staunch contrast from the chorus of laughs, shouts and bubbly conversations that usually characterized their car rides together. 

Halfway through their senior year at Malibu High School, the girls were on their way to take the ACT for the first time; a test that would make or break their college applications.

Stewart has lived most of his life in Malibu. He attended pre-school at the Malibu Presbyterian Church and then Webster Elementary School. Stewart enjoyed many fun years at Webster, but none was more memorable than his third-grade year, when his teacher was his mother, Kris. At Webster, Scott first learned about the Supreme Court in a class taught by Principal Phil Cott.

A common adage says it takes a village to raise a child, and it’s not far-fetched to think the same for a small business – a small village, or a close-knit town such as Malibu, may be exactly what it takes to get a small business off the ground.

That’s at least the experience of Ann Ryan, a Malibu resident of nearly 20 years, who, with her daughter Beth Levine, started what is now Beachy Cream Organic Ice Cream.
