Ride-sharing firm Uber pulling out of San Antonio over regulations

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 06:35
By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Ride-sharing firm Uber plans to pull its service in San Antonio as of April 1 after the city council there voted to revise some of the city's transportation regulations, but not enough for Uber's liking, the company said on Thursday. In December, after nearly a year of sometimes heated debate, San Antonio approved rules that would give smartphone-enabled ride services the right to compete with regular taxi drivers, but with regulations largely fashioned by the taxi industry. San Antonio, the seventh largest U.S. city in terms of population and with a major convention trade, later rolled back many of the regulations.

Ten sheriffs challenge Colorado marijuana laws in federal court

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 05:43
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Six Colorado sheriffs and four from neighboring states challenged Colorado's marijuana legalization in federal court on Thursday, saying the voter-approved measure violates the U.S. Constitution and their oath of office. Pot is illegal under federal law, but Colorado and Washington became the first U.S. states to legalize recreational use by adults in landmark ballots in 2012. The sheriffs filed their civil action in U.S. District Court in Denver, naming Governor John Hickenlooper as defendant. "The Constitution and the federal anti-drug laws do not permit the development of a patchwork of state and local pro-drug policies and licensed-distribution schemes throughout the country which conflict with federal laws," it said.
