High Times Needs Good Feature Writers

High Times

What might seem surprising at first (pot has its own magazine?) makes sense in hindsight: marijuana has already inspired its own class of cuisine (Ganja Gourmet, anyone?) and two states have legalized it for recreational use.  With the drug increasingly pervading society, High Times is here to educate.

“Our targeted reader is the intelligent marijuana consumer, someone who is interested in the culture of the drug, from music to politics,” said editor-in-chief Chris Simunek.

So what, exactly, will readers find inside the pages of this pot-lover’s guide? Yes, there is the regular weed-loving musician profile, but you’ll also find articles on how to grow the plant at home, spotlights on the best new strains, in-depth reports on the current war on drugs and detailed accounts of the drug’s health benefits. Added Simunek, “Our mission is to tell the truth about marijuana.”

Hear that? It’s time to get rollin’, journos. For more details on how to land a byline, read How To Pitch: High Times.
