Aug. 23--Denver to license pot clubs
Colorado's largest city is on the brink of licensing some of the nation's first legal marijuana clubs.
But Denver's elaborate hurdles for potential weed-friendly coffee shops and gathering places may mean the city gets few takers for the new licenses.
Denver voters approved bring-your-own-pot clubs in a ballot measure last year after city officials' dragged their feet on calls to give legal pot smokers a place to use the drug. The city plans to start accepting applications by the end of the month.
The pot club licenses don't come cheap. Applying for one costs $1,000; the license itself is $1,000 a year.
Verizon tweaks unlimited plans
Verizon is raising the price of its unlimited plan while introducing a slightly cheaper, more limited version.
Verizon's unlimited plan had cost $80 a month for one line for those who sign up for automatic payments with a checking account or debit card. Beginning today, it'll cost $85 with high-definition video -- capped at 720p for phones. Plans with DVD-quality streaming will cost $75. For a family of four, the higher-quality version costs $200 a month; the cheaper plan is $160.
Existing customers can keep their unlimited plans, but their video quality is now limited to 720p on phones as well.
Verizon will also slow the speeds of people on the cheaper unlimited plan when the network is congested.
It will do that on the pricier plan only when a customer uses more than 22 gigabytes in a month.
