Blockland Solutions Conference, Alcohol Addiction, Seeking Asylum

From "Believeland" to "Blockland", that's the trajectory civic and business leaders see for the the city.  They are working to transform Cleveland into the place to be for those working in the emerging blockchain technology
A conference that begins this weekend is the first step toward moving the city to the center of the conversation on blockchain innovation. We'll talk to some of the key figures involved in the Blockland Solutions conference and discuss how the digital ledger technology of blockchain could bring people to the region and create jobs.     Then, when we talk about addiction, it is opioids we hear about most.  But addiction experts say alcohol is a 'bigger' problem -- and it's growing.
