News, sports, weather and all the marijuana info you could ever need. With weed legal in Colorado starting next month, The Denver Post has appointed a marijuana editor.
This is Ricardo Baca, Post's former entertainment editor and music critic and the paper's new marijuana editor. He's been with the Post for 12 years. Baca says he's never been a "full-on stoner," but has partaken of marijuana in the past.
In a memo sent to staffers after the hire, the Post's news director Kevin Dale called marijuana the paper's biggest story in the coming year.
