We all know what would have happened if a BuzzFeed staffer had been the one purchasing a legal ounce of “Blue Dream” in Colorado. We would today be watching a split, comparative video contrasting the high effects of legal vs. illegal marijuana.

Many years ago, before they were common, I was a news manager when we heard whispers about our area’s first illegal massage parlor. A massage was $15, but for another $10, the pitch went, you could get “completely relaxed.” You think I could get any one of a good sized group of male reporters to make me a legend – likely the first Gannett manager to approve a chit for a “happy ending?” Not one. They blew my chance at immortality.
