Marijuana News: Denver OKs Pot in Bars, Restaurants

Nov 16, 2016, 12:33 pm EST

There’s good marijuana news for consumers in Denver, Colorado today.

The new marijuana news is that Denver is now allowing customers to consume weed while in bars, restaurants and other local public areas. The decision was made via Proposition 300 that was voted on recently. The votes for approval and rejection of the law was so close it took a week before the new law was confirmed.

While this new bit of marijuana news likely has weed fans preparing to smoke in public, that isn’t the case. When in a restaurant or bar that allows weed, customers still won’t be able to smoke it. However, business owners can set up special smoking areas outside of their locations. Read

9 Best Quotes From Hillary Clinton’s Concession Speech

Nov 9, 2016, 3:41 pm EST

Hillary Clinton’s concession speech this morning was heartfelt and emotional.

The bid to become the first woman president in U.S. history came short from the Democrat as she lost the electoral vote despite winning the popular vote. Here are some of the best quotes from her speech earlier today:

    “Last night, I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans.” “I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it too, and so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort. This is painful and it will be for a long time.” “I want you to remember this: Our campaign was never about one person or even one election, it was about the country we love and about building an America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted.” “We’ve spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the American Dream is big enough for everyone — for people of all races and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities. For everyone.” “I have, as Tim said, spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in. I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks. Sometimes, really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public and political careers. You will have successes and setbacks, too.” “This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.” “Now, I — I know — I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.” “And to all the women, and especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me, I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.” “So my friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come. And there is more work to do. I am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election. May God bless you and may God bless the United States of America.”

Tim Kaine spoke before her, speaking from the heart as well: “I’m going to tell you something, here’s what I’ve come to know so well about Hillary. The team that she has assembled over the years of people that are so deeply loyal to her because she’s so deeply loyal to them is inspiring.” Read

Can Donald Trump Repeal Obamacare?

Nov 9, 2016, 1:38 pm EST

Now that the 2016 presidential election has come to an end, many Americans are likely wondering “Can Donald Trump repeal Obamacare?”

The short answer to “Can Donald Trump repeal Obamacare?” is “Yes.” However, it could take a lot of work and Donald Trump may not be able to get the support needed to do so as President of the United States. While the Senate is now controlled by Republicans, they don’t have the 60 votes that would be needed to enact a full repeal of Obamacare.

This means that Donald Trump may have to use other methods to take Obamacare apart. For example, some parts of the Affordable Care Act could be destroyed via executive orders. As President, Trump could also try and push for certain parts of the act to be changed, which could solve some problems that Republicans have with the system, while not completely repealing it, reports NewsWeek.
