Leafbuyer.com Brings Online Pot Shopping To The Cannabist

COLORADO:  Leafbuyer.com, a selected-deals website, announced that it has been selected by The Cannabist as its official deals partner.

Beginning August 2016, a new online widget will allow users to find Leafbuyer deals on cannabis-related products without ever leaving The Cannabist’s website. Consumers will benefit from the sophisticated tool that aggregates cannabis deals into an easy to use online application.

The new feature allows visitors to search for marijuana flower and concentrate deals at dispensaries and exclusive deals at grow stores or head shops. Leafbuyer will roll out the feature to all readers of thecannabist.co website and will broadcast deals in their top 12 markets. More markets will be brought online in the next 3 to 6 months. The Leafbuyer deals database is the largest in the cannabis market, with nearly 10,000 active offers.

Denver Still Sorting 4/20 Rally Permit For Civic Center

COLORADO: Denver parks officials have denied a permit for a 4/20 rally to an organizer who had been given first consideration for Civic Center on April 20. Now the city is working out details with a second applicant who had been shut out.

The latest twist comes five weeks after first applicant Robert Chase told Denver Parks and Recreation that he would not provide requested details about portable toilets, emergency medical arrangements, crowd monitors, a site plan or trash cleanup. He said he didn’t think those were needed for what he planned as a simple protest rally of continuing criminalization of cannabis under some federal and even state laws despite Colorado’s voter-passed recreational marijuana legalization amendment.

Parks and Rec Executive Director Lauri Dannemiller wrote again to Chase on Feb. 27, making clear that those detailed plans would be a requirement.

So, what exactly will a “sex columnist, with a weed focus” write about? Here’s what’s required for the job:

Our new freelance columnist will write about sex, relationships, intimacy, gender issues and more as it all relates to a world where marijuana is becoming legal — and oftentimes present in the bedroom.
