The Sweetheart Balloon Rally was August 26-28, 2011 at Fairgrounds Park in Loveland, CO. The rally started in the 80s and was resurrected in 2007 to celebrate the sweetheart city. If you missed it, don't worry, the Photo Show snapped some pics of this colorful event that drew plenty of screams of delight from children and some 'oohs' & 'aahs' from some of the bigger kids.
A judge in Colorado’s 8th Judicial District decided not to allow three Loveland medical marijuana dispensaries to remain open after the city’s March 1 ban. But a case challenging the ban will continue through the court.
An 8th Judicial District Court judge heard arguments from both sides of a lawsuit today challenging the city of Loveland’s ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Loveland voters approved the medical marijuana dispensary ban last November, and it went into place on March 1. But three dispensaries are challenging it, along with unnamed medical marijuana patients. They say it violates their rights guaranteed by the state constitution. That’s despite a state law passed by the legislature last year that gives cities the right to restrict medical marijuana dispensaries.
