The Denver alternative weekly, Westword, just put out an open call for a Medical Marajuana critic:
Do you have a medical condition that necessitates marijuana? Do you have a way with words? If so, Westword wants you to join the ranks as our freelance marijuana-dispensary reviewer.
To provide an objective resource on the state’s burgeoning medical marijuana scene, Westword has launched “Mile Highs and Lows,” a weekly review of Colorado marijuana dispensaries. Now we’re looking for just the right person to take the reins.
The job is simple: Visit a different dispensary each week (without revealing you’re working for Westword) and pen concise, impartial and snappy accounts of your experiences. Keep in mind this isn’t about assessing the quality of the medicine on site; it’s about evaluating the quality of the establishment. After all, we can’t have our reviewer be stoned all the time.
The perfect candidate will be a talented writer who’s not about to play favorites — and, of course, someone who has a state medical marijuana ID (or the ability and need to obtain one). Compensation will be meager — and no, we can’t expense your purchases, although that would be pretty cool.
Think you’ve got what it takes? Send a resume (informal is okay; handwritten on rolling papers isn’t) and a one-paragraph essay on “What Marijuana Means to Me” to joe[dot][email protected] The more creative the better — so get rolling.
(Fair warning: Because we think it might be really funny, we reserve the right to publish any samples we receive, though we won’t use any full names without permission).
Next to that island caretaker/blogger position for the Queenslad tourist bureau, is this the best job ever? I mean almost…. I can think of a few other jobs that rank pretty high up there with critical weed-smoking.
Driving a Bud-light zamboni = totally cool.
Being a sexy ice sculptor= totally cool.
Being a Professional Historical Reenactor (Civil and Spanish American Wars only)= totally cool.
Being a glamorous and elegant Las Vegas A-list show girl= totally cool.
Essentially with the aforementioned I realize that I am describing the job of touring with Michael Flatley aka The Lord of The Dance-an experience that captures the essence of ice smoothing, sensual dancing and a battle mentality all at once. This would be the best job ever- even better than being a professional weed critic.
What’s the coolest job you can think of?
