The Denver Post’s Search for a Pot Critic Seems to Be Going Well

Last week, the Denver Post announced it had hired its first-ever pot editor, former entertainment editor Ricardo Baca, to lead the paper's coverage of recreational marijuana, now legal in Colorado. Baca said in a Q&A with the Post that he planned to hire a marijuana critic, and included his e-mail address in a call for résumés. Unsurprisingly, he's been getting responses. Baca told CNN on Monday night he'd received about 30 to 40 résumés, but he hadn't filled the post yet. He wants someone local to Colorado, which disqualifies many aspirants, but we're confident there'll be no shortage of strong candidates in Rocky Mountain High.
