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.

Marijuana Opponents Gearing Up to Attempt Potency Legislation

The most organized and widespread effort yet to battle marijuana in Colorado is underway, reports The Denver Post. The state Supreme Court last week cleared the way for a ballot measure that would set new potency and packaging limits on recreational marijuana. If passed, pot packaging would have to include warnings that the product carries a risk of “permanent loss of brain abilities.” Under the measure, pot potency would also be tightly controlled.

That means popular forms of marijuana such as vape pens and some edibles would become illegal under the law. Marijuana industry attorneys insist the law would ban 80 percent of marijuana products sold today. Supporters compare it to legislation limiting the strength of alcohol.

Legalization skeptics have tried to limit potency in the past, to no avail. Supporters will need to raise almost 100,000 signatures to put the measure on ballots.
