The Wait is Over
The City of Boulder cordially invites the Boulder community to celebrate the completion of the Diagonal Highway Transportation Improvements Project. Festivities will take place between 28th Street and Independence Road. Come scope out the new art!
The project transformed a critical section of the Diagonal Highway into a multi-modal corridor and gateway to and from Boulder, with a new roadway surface, multi-use path, off-street protected bicycle lanes and upgraded transit stops, while maintaining the existing vehicular lanes. The improvements contribute to a safer and more efficient travel experience for drivers, transit users, pedestrians, cyclists, and our Farm guests. (more…)
‘World’s Largest’ Cannabis Career Fair Returns to Denver
BOULDER, Colorado, January 18, 2016 – The legal cannabis industry is responsible for the creation of over an estimated 123,000 full-time jobs in the United States, according to Leafly. This year, it is expected that the demand for cannabis industry jobs will double. In 2016, marijuana sales were over $1 billion ($1 billion in the first ten months), and it is projected that in 2017 this number will continue to rise. For those looking to get to get into the industry, there is a plethora of options.
Some of the jobs that will be available in a wide variety of areas are:
- Finance and Banking
- Web Development
If you’ve ever wanted to work in the cannabis industry, now’s your chance. Vangst Talent is hosting a Cannabis Career Summit and Product Showcase on Thursday, January 19th in Denver at City Hall, located at 1144 Broadway. Over 30 companies will be present, with over 100 positions available. The event will take place from 2:00 – 8:00 pm. The entry price is $10 at the door or FREE with a valid MED-licensed badge.

Cannabidiol (CBD) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD has been linked to veterans for more than three decades. In addition to our veterans, anyone who has been through a traumatic experience may suffer from PTSD today. Most commonly, however, it is our veterans who suffer and must live with this condition. The answer to helping our veterans in the past has been to prescribe them a cocktail of various prescription drugs combined with endless rounds of counseling.
According to the National Center for PTSD:
- “Post-traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental health problem that can occur after a traumatic event like war, assault, or disaster.”
- An estimated 7.8% of Americans (22,260,000 according to the population as of 2014) at some point in their lives will experience PTSD.
- Women, on average, have twice the risk (10.4%) compared to men when it comes to developing PTSD.

50 Colorado Schools to Receive Surplus Marijuana Tax Money
With over $40 million already being used to fund school construction, Colorado state officials are using part of a whopping $66 million dollars of surplus marijuana tax revenue to fund bully prevention. Too much money? What an interesting problem to have.
That extra marijuana tax money could have been returned to taxpayers, however, Colorado residents voted in favor of Proposition BB allowing the state to keep the excess marijuana taxes. It wasn’t until now the 2011 grant plan was able to be put into motion thanks to the extra funds.
Demystifying the Colorado Cannabis Equivalency Law
As we set further into the ever-changing cannabis movement, we as consumers and connoisseurs face many new rules, law changes, and regulation updates. Colorado recently increased the recreational flower purchase limit to one ounce for in-state and out-of-state residents. But what about cannabis concentrates and edibles?
With the new Colorado state marijuana equivalency purchase changes that went into effect October 1st, 2016, cannabis consumers throughout the state are finding it difficult to figure out how much they can actually purchase. As pioneers in the Colorado cannabis industry we are here to steer you in the right direction.

Today, the world’s premier reggae and world-music group, The Wailers, continue to spread the positive vibrations of Marley’s musical legacy through live performances around the world. The Wailers will be jamming live this Friday at 8:30pm in Roosevelt Park in Longmont.
Relax this Labor Day, You’ve Earned It

Two Leading Boulder Companies Concoct Delicious Knick Knacks – The Growing Kitchen & The Farm
To get into the proper head space for our weekend camping trip, my partner and I ate one of The Farm’s sativa Knick Knacks.

Vote “Yes” on 300: One Step Closer to Creating a Cannabis Lovers’ Paradise
Election day is a time-honored tradition for heated debates—sometimes between friends and family—an overload of opinions on Facebook, and a smattering of bumper stickers that might later harbor some regrets. While we are all well aware that the presidential election is coming up, the media attention to it may have cast a shadow over an important local issue for our industry.
On November 8th, the city of Denver, Colorado is excited to be voting on Ordinance 300, Denver’s Neighborhood-Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program (NSCCPP), proposes to allow locals and tourists to consume cannabis publicly.
- A “yes” vote supports temporarily allowing most businesses to establish certain designated areas or designated venues in which marijuana could be consumed.
- A “no” vote opposes allowing such designated areas for public consumption of marijuana.
