The Denver Post, a local Colorado newspaper, has hired a “pot editor,” according to the New York Post:

A week after the paper ran an ad seeking an editor for a marijuana Web site, the paper hired former entertainment editor Ricardo Baca. Baca said he wants to hire a critic to evaluate products on the soon-to-be-legal market.

In 2013, Colorado became among the first states to legalize the sale and recreational use of marijuana.

A friend of ours tips us off that the Westword Denver, an alternative publication, has had an anonymous marijuana critic for years. The critic’s nom de plume: William Breathes.
