Hi Friends!! I just finished a weekend full of beautiful celebrations for all of the people that I love. There is really nothing better than a weekend filled with catching up with friends and family from all over. It was back to back events and running around and lots of decorating, but I would not trade it for the world!! We started out on Friday by going to The Whisky X a new event to Denver – typically when events are just getting off the ground it takes a while for them to gain momentum. When we arrived, we couldn’t believe how many people were there, excited to get in and sample all of the Whisk(e)y and food. Side note, …

Recreational marijuana is saving lives in Colorado, study finds

In Legal Marijuana by Growing DenverLeave a Comment

Marijuana legalization in Colorado led to a “reversal” of opiate overdose deaths in that state, according to new research published in the American Journal of Public Health. “After Colorado’s legalization of recreational cannabis sale and use, opioid-related deaths decreased more than 6% in the following 2 years,” write authors Melvin D. Livingston, Tracey E. Barnett, Chris Delcher and Alexander C. Wagenaar. The authors stress that their results are preliminary, given that their study encompasses only two years of data after the state’s first recreational marijuana shops opened in 2014. While numerous studies have shown an association between medical marijuana legalization and opioid overdose deaths, this report is one of the first to look at the impact of recreational marijuana laws …

The NFL doesn’t know what a catch is and now seems confused about fumbles, too

Order was restored, in a way, in the AFC East on Sunday at the Meadowlands. The New England Patriots, the team that began the season amid speculation about going undefeated en route to yet another Super Bowl title, beat the New York Jets, the team that went into Week 1 being accused of tanking, to move into first place in the surprisingly competitive division. But, in truth, what happened in the Patriots’ 24-17 victory was all about further chaos. For a number of years now, no one has seemed to know what is a legal catch and what isn’t in the NFL. And now, it appears no one knows what is a fumble through the end zone and what isn’t, …

Dodgers’ dominant bullpen is baffling foes in NL playoffs

In News by Growing DenverLeave a Comment

LOS ANGELES — A year ago, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was attempting to get through the late innings of tight playoff games with long appearances by closer Kenley Jansen, a hodgepodge of veteran relievers and one desperate bailout from ace Clayton Kershaw. One October later, Los Angeles’ bullpen is downright dominant as the team steamrolls toward the World Series. After excelling in the unbeaten Dodgers’ three-game NL Division Series sweep of Arizona, those relievers have retired 24 of 25 batters without allowing a hit or a run in the NL Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs. The bullpen hasn’t allowed a hit in its last 8 2/3 innings of work overall, giving the Dodgers extraordinary faith in their relievers heading …
