Know any budding journalists looking for work?
A job notice posted Monday by The Cannabist — a groundbreaking specialist website launched by The Denver Post as Colorado in 2014 legalized the commercial sale of cannabis for recreational use — may have an opportunity.
The Denver Post is seeking a journalist to produce stories its paper and the site, which carries news on legalization battles across the U.S. and Canada, articles on the business of growing and selling pot, as well as “pot-rooted recipes” and “gear reviews.” The job is specifically for a data journalist, and requires familiarity with “self-created visuals” — that means maps, charts and graphs, as the ad points out.
However, as some interested candidates will no doubt be disappointed to hear, “As with every Denver Post position, a qualified candidate must successfully pass a drug test,” the ad says.
Despite the legalization of cannabis in Colorado, many companies still test their staff for the narcotic — which remains a controlled substance under federal law — as The Denver Post has itself reported.
