    For the International Church of Cannabis in Denver, there were three reasons to celebrate on Thursday. First, it was opening day. The church, a more than century-old building recently adorned with brightly colored paintings by the artists Kenny Scharf and Okuda San Miguel, welcomed the public early in the afternoon, at which time no cannabis consumption was allowed inside. “It seemed to be a nice steady flow of people,” said Lee Molloy, a founder of the church and a member, who estimated that a couple of hundred people had come by.

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado's legislative leaders knew they faced a hard sell when they unveiled a bipartisan measure to ask voters for a sales tax hike and a bond issue to generate billions of dollars for transportation. That hard sell was on full display before the Democrat-led House initially approved the bill on party lines Thursday. Even after that approval, Republicans kept trying to change the bill.

    The population of Denver has been steadily growing over the past few years, but not enough of its new inhabitants want to work in the restaurant industry. The reason? The higher-paying jobs are in weed, man. New eateries are popping up all over Denver to meet the increased demand of residents and tourists, but restaurant owners claim they’re having a hard time filling their kitchens with able-bodied workers, Bloomberg reports. “Our work force is being drained by the pot industry,” Denver restaurateur Bryan Dayton told the site. “Enter the weed business, which pays $22 an hour with full benefits,” added...

    DENVER — Each morning Yadira Sanchez and her three children awaken to the roar of traffic and the plumes of exhaust that spill from the highway that cuts through their neighborhood. Now, Ms. Sanchez and her family are confronting a plan to triple the width of this state’s main east-west artery, sending tens of thousands more cars by their door. Denver was the fastest-growing large city in America in 2015, with a population of nearly 700,000, and the scene of a tech and marijuana boom that has drawn 1,000 new households a month. But as in other cities, its highways...

    Roughly six months ago, Ever Valles was arrested by Denver police on charges of illegal possession of a weapon and vehicle theft. The suspect was reportedly flagged by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as an “immigration enforcement priority," given his known gang affiliation. A detainer request was put on Valles, asking the city of Denver, a so-called “sanctuary city” to notify them before he was released, so they could take him into custody. However, Denver released Valles December 20, and ICE claims they were not properly notified. Almost two months later, tragedy struck. On February 17, Valles was charged with first-degree...

    ICE had a detainer on him, but claims Denver Sheriff's Dept didn't notify them. Denver claims they did, but their "proof" is a 2-page PDF of a FAX showing they released him on 12/20/16 11:30pm, yet the FAX is dated 12/20/16 11:35PM! Liars. You released him close to midnight and faxed ICE 5 minutes later. And notice this is the 3rd Denver Light Rail incident in the past month or so. One was a Muslim convert (had jihadi lit at home) murdering an employee who was giving directions to 2 women. Other was video of a TDS black woman screaming...

She now faces separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6. Vizguerra’s attorney appeared in court for her, saying she probably would have been taken into custody if she appeared. She is now taking...

    The Justice Department reached a settlement this week with the Denver Sheriff Department, after they allegedly discriminated against work-authorized immigrants by only considering the applications of U.S. citizens. “The Denver Sheriff Department discriminated based on citizenship status by requiring applicants for deputy sheriff positions to be U.S. citizens and publishing job postings with U.S. citizenship requirements, in violation of the INA (Immigration and Nationality Act),” a statement from the DOJ reads.  INA prohibits employers from limiting jobs to U.S. citizens (except where they are required to do so by law).
