COLORADO MEDICAL MARIJUANA SHOP

An alternative newspaper in Denver named “Westword” recently posted an ad for what an AP article is  calling possibly “the sweetest job in journalism” – marijuana critic and reviewer. Like California, Colorado has approved medical marijuana. Since the passage of their own medical marijuana law, Colorado has seen an explosion of “pot shops.” The paper is starting a column called “Mile Highs and Lows” to review those shops.

Fourteen states have leglized some form of medical marijuana, the use of which is now so popular that there are five iPhone apps to locate the closest shop to buy marijuana legally. The paper has reportedly received hundreds of applications for its marijuana reviewer job. Some applicants have even offered to do the job for free.
