Last week the Boulder Chamber made history, probably, when it presented a major award to locally based Terrapin Care Station. The chamber gave Terrapin Care Station, tts Innovative Business of the Year Award, the first award of that significance from a non-marijuana industry business organization in Colorado and perhaps in the country, the company said. “One of the most innovative things that Terrapin Care Station did was join the Boulder Chamber eight years ago,” Chris Woods, founder, owner and chief executive of Terrapin Care Station, said in a statement. “Today, we are active with chambers of commerce in every city we operate in. Every day, more and more people acknowledge the cannabis industry's contributions to communities, and so fewer people are viewing it as a fringe business that is different than any other.”

Coffman, the lone Republican on a stage filled with Democratic elected officials and candidates, told the crowd she could also be the only Republican attorney general in the country taking part in an LGBT pride event.

Let Colorado Vote, the group advocating for open primary elections in the state, celebrated legislative leadership on Monday tied to <a href="https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb17-305" target="_blank">Senate Bill 305</a> in a way that lawmakers involved with the bill suggested was little tied to experience on the ground at the Capitol. “The thousands of grassroots activists who helped enact the open primary law were frankly shocked that legislators would try a blatant end run around the voters,” Let Colorado Vote Vice Chair John Hereford was quoted in an email blast to supporters. “But thanks to the leadership of Senators Hill and Moreno and Governor Hickenlooper, the most egregious provisions of the bill were spiked. There’s still work to do, but the highest principal of [Proposition] 108 is intact — unaffiliated voters have the right to vote in a primary without being forced to affiliate with a political party.”
