Day three. What a whirlwind already. Three guests, one documentary viewing, one group field trip (holler @bruvs and @vinniechant!) and five students overwhelmed by an industry.that’s taking over Colorado (and their Spring Break).
Today we meet with Representative Jonathan Singer of House District 11, and get his take on Cannabis Legislation in Colorado. Then we’ll be remote editing on our third Medium post and our final project. And of course all of the action is on the #CannabisJournalism hashtag.
Welcome to day two, or Tuesday, of #CannabisJournalism. In the morning will be meeting with Josiah Hesse of The Denver Post and The Guardian, among other news outlets, and then in the afternoon with Susannah Grossman of Verdant Communications, the shop that runs public relations for Women Grow, a leading female-focused cannabis industry group. In the evening, we will sit in during a taping of Ricardo Baca’s Cannabist Show at the Denver Post. It’s going to be a homerun type day, so strap in and let’s do some learning.
#CannabisJournalism is meeting again, this time during DU’s Spring Break. We will be holding class in Sturm Hall, Room 434. It’s the EDP lab. Take the south elevator to the top floor and wind your way around.
Last night, Cannabis Journalism Professor Andrew Matranga was a guest on the Denver Post Cannabist Show with Ricardo Baca, the Post’s Marijuana Editor, and another guest, Julie Berliner of Sweet Grass Kitchen, a company whose products are infused with single strain, full-flower cannabis plant, grown in house to ensure a consistent, safe, and reliable crop-to-table confection.
They spoke about the changing face of legalization and what it’s like to cover and produce in an industry that’s constantly changing. The episode will air in a few weeks.
#CannabisJournalism will be offered again in the winter interterm, which will take place in December at the University of Denver.
