KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

Pot Prices Tumble in Colorado

Prices for pot are plummeting in Colorado, reports Business Insider.

Last October the cost of a wholesale pound of cannabis sat at around $2,500. Since then the price has been cut by $1,000, falling to around $1,400.

John Manlove is the director of sales at Tradiv, an online marijuana-distribution platform. He says in less than a year, we've seen wholesale prices drop to nearly half of their previous totals. That’s because the market is flooded. And the massive amounts of marijuana hitting the market in Colorado are causing a steady decline in wholesale prices.

Colorado isn’t alone in experiencing this sort of freefall. Prices have been dropping wherever there's a legal market for marijuana, including Washington State. To help stabilize the market, Denver's municipal government extended a moratorium on granting licenses to new retail dispensaries. However, this move has allowed a small group of large-scale cannabis business owners to consolidate the remaining licenses.
