City Council kills pot vote, RMJ tops MMJ for first time and more

Last week, Colorado Springs City Council voted 6 to 3 to kill an ordinance that would have allowed locals to vote in April on whether the city should accept recreational-marijuana stores. The idea was brought months ago by local advocacy group Every Vote Counts, but Councilor Jill Gaebler was left as the sole proponent after group members did not appear at subsequent meetings, including last Tuesday's, when Gaebler joined Councilors Jan Martin and Helen Collins as the only votes in favor of referral.

Obama outlines plans to deafeat ISIL; Middle East expert fears...

Colorado College political science professor David Hendrickson believes the American people changed their minds about going to war at the moment video surfaced from ISIS showing the beheadings of two American journalists. "The fact that public opinion changed with the beheadings of the journalists is disturbing because once they [the American people] see the effects of an expanded war they may recall why they became disaffected with the Iraq War in the first place," Hendrickson said.
