Wanted: Pot reviewer

No word on whether the job pays in Cheetos


A Colorado alternative paper, Westword, has received more than 100 applications for the “meagerly compensated” job of marijuana reporter. The state, which allows medical marijuana to be sold to those with prescriptions, is experiencing a boom in marijuana shops catering to all price points and social brackets. So in addition to commenting on the attributes of White Widow and Afghan Gold Seal, the journalist will also spend considerable time evaluating the various stores. “After all, we can’t have our reviewer be stoned all the time,” says the job posting.
