a century ago, hemp was apparently rather widely grown in Creuse, tho mostly for its fiber. The former mayor of Crocq restored an old moulin á chanvre not far from Crocq, and there's a nice walk to visit it. Look here . When we're in France, we avoid cannabis, but now we're back in California, we ca...

The regulations change every time a bureaucrat comes up with some new way to pester folks. Last year, we just needed a little sticker to show we were residents of our commune, this year (as above) one needs a card.

The gilets jaune s seem to be targeting speed cameras--apparently quite a number have been destroyed. Of course, No One is in favor of wanton destruction of (quasi-)governmental property. But :mrgreen: . There are many things in the USA which are deplorable, but we don't have (yet?) speeding tickets...

You might ask at the médiathéque (either Aubusson or Felletin). There may be a similar service in or near Guéret. The Aubusson/Felletin one does have quite a few books in English
