Colorado tries to fight homeless problem that may have been triggered by pot law

The City of DEN is grappling with a growing homeless problem, and some people blame marijuana legalization for attracting a growing number of drug users now living on the street. CO’s homeless population jumped thirteen percent from two thousand and fifteen to two thousand and sixteen, despite that nationally, homelessness declined by three percent during the same time period, according the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. While some blame pot laws, others place the blame on the state’s housing dearth.

The state’s booming economy has brought in people from all over the country. So many, that home and apartment construction has not kept pace, meaning even some people with jobs find themselves living on the streets of cities like DEN. “As our unemployment rate continues to decline,” explains DEN’s homeless czar Erik Solivan, “we have a number of service workers, folks working at construction sites, working at our ballparks, and our service industry, who cannot afford the rent.” A homeless man in CO.

five-Star leader Luigi Di Maio said he and League chief Matteo Salvini had completed their review of the program drawn up by party officials and they would present it to President Sergio Mattarella by Monday. A five-Star source had said the program contained no reference to a possible exit from the euro or “anything that could cause any concern regarding IT’s euro membership”. five-Star has moderated its position over the last year, but the League still wants to leave the euro zone as soon as politically feasible.

Solivan says 3 quarters of the city’s homeless work. Following complaints from downtown businesses, DEN instituted an urban camping ban to keep people from spending the night on city sidewalks, in parks and other public spaces. Last year, the city began a series of sweeps to enforce the camping ban, gathering up tents, sleeping bags and other belongings from homeless people to put into storage. “They took all my stuff,” complains Charlie Berry, who says he’s been homeless for several years because of a double hernia operation that didn’t work. “All my clothes and all my bedding and everything, and (they) threw it in the trash and hauled it away like it was nothing.”

The accord has yet to be made public and still needs to be ratified by both parties’ members as well as approval by Mattarella. The parties had made progress on agreeing a prime minister, Di Maio said, but he did not give a name. Salvini said the new premier would be neither him nor Di Maio. A draft of the accord reviewed by Reuters earlier on Thursday spelt out a plan to cut taxes, increase welfare payments for the poor and scrap an unpopular pension reform which seems incompatible with EU rules on fiscal discipline. IT is the euro zone’s third-largest economy. News of the draft accord has caused concern in BRU, where European Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis told the EU parliament on Thursday that IT’s new government should stick to fiscal discipline and keep reducing public debt. IT’s borrowing costs have been rising as details of the accord emerge, though they stabilized after a sell-off on Wednesday. IT’s main share index closed up zero.three percent and the gap between the yields on IT’s benchmark bonds and safer German bonds retreated after briefly widening on Thursday to their widest since early January.

Lane, 1 of the attorneys involved in a federal class-action lawsuit against the city on behalf of the homeless. Lane says DEN’s actions violated people’s constitutional right to due process. “If somebody’s there, they get a receipt for their property. If nobody’s there, their property is simply taken and essentially their home has been removed from them.”

Ratings agency DBrazilS warned that the parties’ proposals could threaten IT’s sovereign credit rating and comments by the League’s economics chief sparked a plunge in the share price of troubled bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena. Claudio Borghi said Monte Paschi will remain in public hands following a bailout last year and branch closures planned by the outgoing center-left government would be rolled back. Outgoing Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni told EU leaders in BG that he and other leaders were worried that fundamental issues such as the need to safeguard public accounts were now up for political discussion.

A hand-scrawled sign in Durango, CO asking people to donate to homeless groups rather than to panhandlers directly.   Though there are no hard statistics to back it up, some people – including Charlie Berry, who grew up in DEN – say some of the homeless have come to CO for legalized marijuana. “When you legalize marijuana you open the door to a whole new level of hell.”

French President Emmanuel Macron said the nascent Italian government was made up of “heterogeneous and paradoxical” forces, but expressed confidence that Mattarella would ensure IT continued to work constructively in the EU. Mattarella has repeatedly stressed the importance of maintaining a strong, pro-European stance. The draft pact proposed a new “universal income” for the poor costed at seventeen billion euros, while it said a planned softening of an unpopular pension reform would cost five billion.

Since DEN began cracking down, homeowners and businesses on the periphery of downtown say the problem has just moved outward to where they are located. “I’ve definitely seen a real high increase of homeless throughout this certain area right here,” says Kyle Hollingsworth, manager of the Chalet Bed and Breakfast, east of the state capitol building.  “It definitely does affect the business. There’ll be people hanging out here, they might be doing drugs, they might be drinking, they might be being loud and obnoxious. It definitely scares a lot of the people away.”

The plan promised to introduce a 1five percent flat tax rate for businesses and 2 tax rates of 1five and 2zero percent for individuals — a reform long promoted by the League. Economists say this would cost well over fivezero billion euros in lost revenues.

Hollingsworth and other business owners and homeowners say there are serious health and safety issues created by the trash, drug paraphernalia and human waste left on their lawns by people camping out overnight. One homeowner, who did not want her name used, told Fox News she woke up 1 morning to see a homeless man peeing right in front of her window.

It was not clear when these and other measures would be adopted, and there was still no word on the thorny issue of who would be prime minister. Neither Salvini nor Di Maio wants the other to get the job. Additional reporting by Huw Jones, Crispian Balmer and Gavin Jones; Editing by David Stamp and Richard Balmforth

Solutions are not simple. DEN has several shelters for the homeless, but Berry says many avoid them because alcohol and drugs are not allowed, and because only a small amount of personal belongings can be taken in. “You can’t bring your stuff inside so you have to leave it outside,” he said. “Basically, you might as well put a ‘free’ sign on it you know?”

The city said it is committed to dealing with the growing problem. In January, Mayor Michael Hancock announced the hiring of Solivan to head a newly created housing coordination office. Solivan said DEN is working on several new programs to try to people get off the streets. “Programs like our sidewalk storage (lockers). They can store their materials on the sidewalk, get access to it two4 hours a day,” he said.”

The last idea is based on programs like the 1 in Seattle, which provides temporary shelters for homeless people complete with plumbing, kitchens and locks to protect belongings until more permanent housing can be found.  Alicia Acuna joined Fox News Channel (FNew Caledonia) in one thousand, nine hundred and ninety-seven and currently serves as a general assignment reporter based in the network’s DEN bureau.

  1. Horrible decision to bring her into the mix
    Joke of the day ?
    The problem with saying something is “debunked by ‘leading’ scientists” is that you can turn around and find just as many scientists who take the opposite side in this debate. Like the global warming/climate change issue, this is not settled debate, and there are just as many who have good points on both sides of the issue. I understand that people do not like the opposing sides in these debates, but it is not fair to allow only one side to be heard until scientists can prove CONCLUSIVELY that vaccinations are a good thing without any dangerous side effects, or that climate change is caused to a large degree by man, and has a man-made basis. All points of view should be shared equally so people can make their own minds for themselves.
