Rolling Papers

When Colorado became the first state to legalize recreational marijuana in 2014, the Denver Post named Ricardo Baca as the world’s first marijuana editor of a major newspaper. Rolling Papers is an exciting, insightful, and at times hilarious look at how the Denver Post covered this hot national issue with a team of straight-laced staff writers and offbeat freelancers. Policy news, strain reviews, parenting advice and edible recipes are the new norm on a new beat: pot journalism.
