  1. Love seeing this!
  2. According to The Cannabist, it might take Utah sometime to join the ranks: http://www.thecannabist.co/2017/06/20/utah-medical-marijuana-research/81587/
  3. http://www.thecannabist.co/ The Denver Post has been running articles for the last few years from The Cannabist. Been full of information for me. MORE LINKS: https://www.hempbasics.com/shop/hemp-information http://www.greeleytribune.com/news/industrial-hemp-gaining-traction-in-colorados-agriculture-scene-as-viable-crop/ Click on the Greeley Tribune thread. I lived in ultra conservative Weld County and seeing this change towards a plant is nothing short of amazing.
  4. That was what I was referring to. Conservatives really need to rally behind industrial hemp. This might actually help slow or even reverse the declining rural populations of the US and help the rural economy. Even the energy industry is moving towards clean energy because they do see the writing on the wall for petroleum. Speaking of clean energy in the state of Colorado, Xcel (electric utility) has a state mandated goal of 30% energy sources being renewable by 2020 and they have consistently met past yearly goals for that. Heck CO will be at about 41% by 2021. http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/news/2017/05/30/xcel-says-company-wide-carbon-emissions-down.html Think about it...rural America leading the way with hemp and renewable energy. I hope we are able to maintain our push towards clean energy despite withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord. Plus using industrial hemp instead of wood for paper and many things would also help the environment. I'm curious what common things are made out of hemp? We ought to use this thread as a way to inform one each other about hemp & CBD. Education will help people look past the negatives of weed and be more accepted by society in the US.
  5. High likehood of coaching change after this upcoming job.

  7. Forgot to mention Facebook...CU's video staff was at a conference in Atlanta recently.
  8. Wouldn't that be good for business for the NBA?
  9. Org, you are including industrial hemp in this thread as well? https://www.leafly.com/news/cannabis-101/hemp-101-what-is-hemp-whats-it-used-for-and-why-is-it-illegal One story I read that interests related to the timber industry and chemical industry are behind the prohibition of industrial hemp in this country. Had that law or act (can't recall what it was) not gone into effect, it's very possible we would have had much more forest land than what we have today. https://www.forbes.com/sites/ashoka/2013/05/29/industrial-hemp-a-win-win-for-the-economy-and-the-environment/#1380fbab289b We would be able to decrease our reliance on China & Europe if we really grew industrial hemp in the masses again. Hemp does not require that much water and would be perfect in Colorado's climate and the rest of the west. Like Org stated, there is a lot of money to be made. https://www.leafly.com/news/politics/what-is-hemps-current-status-in-the-united-states The 2014 Federal Farm Bill allowed for industrial hemp production in states that allows for it. I still think smoking weed & eating weed isn't such a good idea but to throw away the promise of industrial hemp over the THC is really short sighted. Sorry if I hijacked this thread with industrial hemp but it is something I bring up when people from midwestern states criticize Colorado for passing Amendment 64. Take Charlotte's Web for instance.
  10. TT WR transferring to CU and will sit out the 2017 season. WR is becoming crowded in Boulder.
  11. well the Rockies have four rookie pitchers...future is bright.
  12. How have you positioned Pac-12 Networks for distribution on emerging platforms? It’s been very important for Pac-12 Networks to be nimble and to position the content for distribution on every existing platform. The beautiful thing is that a provider can choose to carry one network – the Pac-12 Network, which is the national network that offers more than 450 live events – or the national network plus the six regional channels. There’s a plethora of content available in multiple ways for a provider to choose and ultimately the consumer to choose. We aggressively pursued new distribution deals with DISH and Sling TV, for one. We have another one that’s already in place that hasn’t yet been announced, and we’re in conversations with others. - See more at: http://www.cablefax.com/programming/pac-12-networks#.WURR90Grymg.twitter Youtube, Playstation Vue, Hulu, DirecTV Now, etc.?
