Marijuana intern wanted, apply within

We have so much marijuana at Westword, we don't know what to do with it.

Marijuana news, that is.

We're looking to bring on our second-ever pot-specific intern. You don't need to be a medical marijuana cardholder or anything like that, but some working knowledge of cannabis and the cannabis industry wouldn't hurt your chances of being selected.

Ideally, you're someone who has experience with news writing, blogging and coming up with your own stories. Most importantly: You need to earn college credits towards a degree for this, because we don't pay. Not even in weed, since The Man apparently frowns upon that.

(Furiously shakes fist at The Man.)

That said, you'll get valuable experience rolling my joints and running back and forth to the Capitol to sit in lengthy committee meetings.

Seriously though, there's a lot to be done. You'll help with dispensary listings, create blog posts, work on special sections like our Chronic-le dispensary guide, and cover breaking and spot news in the cannabis world (no really, it happens sometimes) for Westword as well as our sister blog, Toke of the Town.

Best of all: we don't test you for weed (or anything else, for that matter). You are a college student, after all. It's your duty to be smoking copious amounts of cannabis, skipping class and perfecting your Frisbee golf game.

Those interested should first check with your program to make sure that you can get course credit for working with us.

If your ed supervisors say being our pot news intern is okay (even if it's with a scowl), send us over your resume or CV to marijuana@westword.com along with 420 words or so on why you'd be a perfect fit for this position.

Sound good? Great. Now put down the bong and start writing.

Dear Westword,

You don't need another marijuana writer; you need fewer articles on marijuana.  Seriously, it's boring.

I have a better idea Wil and the Wastword.  You quit and become my intern.  I will do the big boy reporting, you know voter fraud, millions extorted, public document distruction etc. etc. and you can still go around selling adds and doing cannabis reviews everyone's a winner, you get to smoke, Patti can preted she is a real hard hitting news editor and I can report the truth to the people.  You see everyone win.  Or you could go on reporting state propaganda mixed with food and cannabis reviews and entertainment unless the state passes cannabis ad bans then your fuck.

Why don't you hire that simpering lying know-nothing imbecile suka1 ?

He represents the Stoner "Culture" of willful ignorance to a tee.

@2006KLIDstupidstoner Good idea with your own business setting up small grows in people's homes. Start with an ad on Craigslist or the back page of Westword! Some don't want to wait until the retail stores open since it's legal to grow your own now.

@CoreyDonahue Give me a break. Voice Media Group publishes ALTERNATIVE weeklys around the country.  You're in the wrong place dumbass.  I'm surprised you didn't include Stewart and Colbert in your rant.  Idiot

@CoreyDonahue ... or just let the Marijuana McLawyers email in their own Propaganda Press Releases for direct publication, and cut out the middle man along with the typos and math fails.

@Southsider @CoreyDonahue Voice Media Group is an alternative publication company? Cool so does that make News Coperation an alternative  publication as well?  So, where are the emails from Matt Cook and the calls between Nixonlooper and the DOJ regarding A64 if your so smart southsider.

@DonkeyHotay@CoreyDonahueThe numbers are staggering! Colorado Medical Marijuana patients are NOT renewing their permits in spite of a sixty percent reduction in the annual registration fee. Market shares are in a frenzy and the Denver Dispensary Price Wars continue to heat up as ounces now sell for as low as $125.

@DonkeyHotay - Why don't you apply? I don't think there is anyone around who trolls the westword mmj section as much as you. 

You can start calling and collecting the mmc licenses that you seem so bent on WB obtaining during his reviews. You get to spend your own money and you could probably ignore WB's observations of the mmc and just concentrate on the medicine. Or whatever, I don't know what your major gripe is this week.

Okay, now go ahead and look down your nose at a random comment and think of a snide remark. We're waiting!
