Colorado’s Cannabis Business Office to promote social equity

DENVER — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has announced the creation of a Cannabis Business Office to promote social equity, provide financial and technical assistance to entrepreneurs and create jobs in the state’s $2.2 billion marijuana industry.

The office was authorized by legislation passed during the Legislature’s 2021 session that provides an initial $4 million from the state’s marijuana cash tax fund for its operations.

Boulder scientist warns 5G networks could hurt weather forecasting

With 5G wireless networks quickly moving toward wide-scale circulation, Boulder weather analysis experts are expressing concern over its potential to interfere with forecast data from satellites.
