Denver Becomes First US City To Decriminalize Psychedelic Mushrooms

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Reason: In a surprise turn of events, a Denver ballot initiative to effectively decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, previously thought to have failed, now appears to have narrowly passed after all. This would make the Mile High City the first in the U.S. to decriminalize psilocybin. If the unofficial final tally holds, Denver law enforcement will be directed to treat psychedelic mushrooms owned for personal possession as the lowest enforcement priority. ...

Best cocktail bars in Denver

Denver is a wonderful city to visit for many reasons. It’s beautiful, it has some of the best recreational cannabis dispensaries in the US, and it has an excellent restaurant and bar scene. Over the past few years, it’s also become a destination-worthy cocktail city. Along with classic bars that have been around since Prohibition, it seems like a new cocktail haunt is opening every other week in Denver. The city’s cocktail community is tightly knit, and it’s clear that there is a lot of suppo...

4/20 alert: Carl’s Jr. tests CBD burger on April 20 in Colorado that costs $4.20

The Calgary Flames Have More To Give

from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun, He might be the exception. Otherwise, Mike Smith nailed it. “I don’t think we have played our best hockey yet,” said the Calgary Flames’ starting (and suddenly starring) netminder after Saturday’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche at the Saddledome, a result that evens their best-of-seven playoff series at one win apiece. “I think everyone in here will tell you the same thing. I think we were a little tentative tonight. We were...

Traveling to Denver for the Month of Photography 2019

  There was a time, years ago, when I wrote travel pieces in the column. I regaled with tales of cities near and far. I also reviewed photography exhibitions, and for years I interviewed photo industry types, transcribed them myself, (yes, it was laborious,) and shared lightly-edited-long-reads with you, our loyal audience. That this column has evolved into mostly book reviews, with a few portfolio review stories sprinkled in is mostly a function of habit, and the fact that I am a much busier pe...

Jets Slumping at Worst Possible Time

Indeed, reaching peak performance at the right time and entering the postseason with confidence are paramount for any team entertaining notions of hosting pro hockey’s top prize. Therefore, it’s not ideal that Winnipeg Jets’ head coach Paul Maurice, over the past few weeks as what’s supposed to be a deep Stanley Cup Run inches ever-closer, has described his team’s play as...

How Nate Armstrong Recommends Raising Rent Prices Efficiently

Raising rent for tenants is one of the sensitive topics that most landlords dislike. It can create a situation where tenants may feel blindsided by the unforeseen increase in costs. Nevertheless, property owners are often forced to raise the rent in order to keep up with the rising standard of living. For instance, supplies and overhead expenses are climbing every year. As a consequence, landlords will lose more of their revenues. Given their business-oriented mindset, it’s completely understan...
