Marijuana is now the nation's fastest-growing industry. The legal marijuana industry brought in $2.4 billion last year, so it's certainly no longer any sort of laughing matter.

These boutiques on wheels began popping up around Colorado a few years ago but recently have picked up speed -- so much, in fact, that fellow truckers are expecting about 10 new fashion trucks by this summer.
Even if you're a just a talk-radio host, you shouldn't just say "Yap," as KHOW 630-AM's Mandy Connell did yesterday, when your special guest, in this case, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), insults the President.
Mr. Brandow hopes that by learning the real history behind our beliefs and prejudices about our companion species, and the many consequences for dogs today, we'll begin breaking the ultimate barrier to their "improvement."
Increasingly, the highly acclaimed extreme winter sports competition and festival -- which takes place this weekend in Aspen, Colo. -- has developed quite an international accent.

The same systems and organizations that have frozen us out for years now want to dictate and advise us on how we should engage to fight for our freedom.
While these proposals are encouraging, and show some sign of progress, they are not nearly enough. Today, households headed by a female and women over 60 are the two poorest demographic groups in the United States.
Would the Republican-controlled Congress shut down the Department of Homeland Security to halt Obama's program delaying deportation of undocumented immigrants whose children are U.S. citizens? Colorado's own Rep. Ken Buck would do it.
I read a lot about animal abuse, but a recent essay made me ill, and I just want to highlight some of its contents and let you decide how much you want to read and can tolerate. A number of people told me they couldn't make it to the end of the essay absent tears.
That word is admittedly a scary one. Most civilized, sane people don't want to be called homophobic. It doesn't mean that you're murdering gay people. It doesn't even mean that you're a homophobe. But...
One of the first questions that I ask athletes and coaches I work with is: Should you compete like you train or train like you compete? By far, the most frequent response is: You should compete like you train. This answer seems perfectly reasonable if you think about it.

Kiss was born with a rare neurological condition that makes him unable to pull his tongue into his mouth. The more relaxed and happy he is, the floppier the tongue. Think of it as his unique, silly smile.
Republican Sen. Cory Gardner took his slippery interview tactics to the national stage of PBS' Newshour yesterday, responding to questions with predictions of the future, not answers to the questions, leaving us thinking we got answers from our new Senator.

We know that rats and numerous other animals experience positive emotions and also that they experience deep and enduring pain. So, why are rodents and other sentient animals -- including birds, fish, reptiles, and invertebrates -- not protected?
Every event, every obstacle is part of the puzzle. I have to trust that this is all part of the big picture because it just seems too huge and traumatizing to be random.
Last year, conservative talk-radio hosts in Colorado wrapped their loving arms around a baker for discriminating against a gay couple by refusing to bake them a wedding cake.
