Denver is poised to overhaul the local weed industry with a pair of laws that would bring cannabis products to your door and make the lucrative business more equitable. The Denver City Council unanimously voted to approve the overhaul package Monday night. The second vote and final vote will come hours before the unofficial cannabis holiday of April 20, when Mayor Michael Hancock is expected to sign it into law. Both bills have been in the works for several years, according to Eric Escudero, spokesman for the city’s Department of Excise and Licenses. The first major change would allow marijuana dispensaries to deliver weed through third-party vendors, Escudero said. Delivery drivers would need a transporter’s license. That change would also remove Denver’s 220-store cap on new recreational pot dispensaries, which Escudero said has been in effect since 2016. In order to deliver weed or open up a new recreational shop, applicants must meet the state’s social equity criteria … [Read more...] about Denver could soon allow weed delivery, plus more recreational shops and consumption clubs

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The state of California halted the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Tuesday — on the same day that the city of Los Angeles opened up COVID-19 vaccinations to anyone age 16 and older.

(Robert Gauthier/Los Angeles Times/Getty Images) Early Tuesday morning, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Drug Administration recommended an immediate pause in the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in order to investigate a blood clot issue. That prompted both the city and county of L.A. to announce they were temporarily halting the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at all their sites.

Despite jubilation over the partial reopening of pubs in Britain, the industry — which has been under threat for decades — has seen a rapid decline over the past year of lockdowns, with some 2,500 pubs shutting down for good in 2020. On Monday, pubs were permitted by the government to open back up, however, only those with outdoor seating were actually allowed to serve their customers. The joy of finally being able to raise a glass with mates was perhaps best typified by the scenes witnessed in Soho in London, which is said to have resembled a carnival atmosphere on the first night of reopening. Hard to believe this is central London on a Monday night as opposed to some decadent festival. Spontaneous cheering. People quite literally dancing in the streets- the liberation is palpable. pic.twitter.com/gxHeuKcood — Matthew Thompson (@mattuthompson) April 12, 2021 When looking at the country at large, however, a bleaker portrait of the economic devastation inflicted … [Read more...] about Last Call: 2,500 British Pubs Closed For Good During Lockdown, as Less Than Half Reopened on Monday
A few miles north of Coal Creek Canyon, through the pines and gambel oak, and past yards, fences and hillsides dotted with “No Trespassing” signs, the Gross Dam horseshoes against two mountainsides to collect Colorado’s most precious resource: water. The Denver metro couldn’t go a day without it, Denver Water Engineering Manager Doug Raitt said as he looked across the frozen Gross Reservoir. Other amenities, sure, but not water. Demand for water in Denver is expected to increase by a third within the next decade, according to the utility’s 2014 study. That could lead to an annual shortfall of more than 34,000 acre-feet of water, enough to last 225,000 people an entire year. Wildfires, drought and climate change constantly endanger the state’s snowpack, which feeds into the utility’s reservoirs and supply streams and rivers. Long-standing conservation efforts — perhaps you’ve seen the billboards — can no longer keep pace with Denver’s growth, said Greg Fisher, Denver Water’s … [Read more...] about How to ensure Denver’s 1.5 million water customers have enough in the future?
