DENVER — Colorado is known for pushing boundaries on marijuana, but health officials' decision to reject pot as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder shows the issue is far from settled. SENT: 550 words, photos. DENVER — Blair Hubbard's addiction to heroin began with the prescription painkillers she got after getting her wisdom teeth removed. The 34-year-old Denver resident took more than the recommended dose once and she found that she liked the feeling she got.

After a long and bumpy journey that began with marathon task force meetings last summer and lasted to the very last day of the 2015 legislative session, testing reduction legislation is headed to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk. Hickenlooper made clear throughout the process he would not stand for anything that would cut testing to the point of undermining Colorado’s system for holding districts, schools and teachers accountable for student performance. Senate President Bill Cadman said new and veteran lawmakers alike remarked that they had “never seen anything like this issue,” which he likened to kicking a hornet’s nest. House Bill 1323 passed easily in both chambers — 30-5 in the Senate and 55-8 in the House. — Trim reading and literacy tests for the youngest students, in kindergarten through third grade. — Preserve 9th grade PARCC English and math tests, probably the biggest point of disagreement in the testing debate. — Eliminate 11th and 12th-grade PARCC tests, and replace 10th grade.
At 11:58 a. m. , I glanced at the clock in the lobby of the Yak & Yeti Hotel in the Durbar Marg neighborhood of the Nepalese capital. I walked toward the elevator, and the floor rolled in front of me. It felt like a small boat tossed by enormous waves. I slipped and slid on the tile floor, and ran, leaning drunkenly to the left, toward the door. I looked desperately for a door frame. A hotel employee passed by me, and I reached for his arm. I followed him into the room behind the reception desk and crouched on the floor. Another hotel employee inside looked as scared as I was. A stream of water 2 feet wide rushed by the path in front of me. later, others described a foot of water from the hotel pool and dozens of goldfish from a nearby pond thrown violently into the air. I settled on the grass a few dozen feet from the hotel and felt the rolling murmurs of aftershocks — some totaling 6. 6 on the Richter scale, some sources are reporting. The hotel employees around me were as shocked as I was. Up on the third floor, Dietric Hennings had just checked into his room and was preparing to call his girlfriend. Then he felt the building slide to one side, he said. “In that moment, you realize how small you are,” Hennings said.
