Later this year—once Arizona’s medical-marijuana system is functioning—the Tucson Weekly will need the services of a medical-marijuana critic. This individual will review Southern Arizona’s dispensaries, clinics and other medical-marijuana-related businesses for the Tucson Weekly and TucsonWeekly.com.
Prospective reviewers must have:
• A prescription for medical marijuana, for a legitimate medical condition.
• Some writing experience.
• No serious conflicts of interests. In other words, prospective reviewers should have no direct financial links to medical-marijuana businesses, and no close personal links to an individual or individuals running a medical-marijuana business.
• A driving record with no major convictions, including DUI.
This is an independent-contractor (i.e., freelance) position. We will make an exception to the Tucson Weekly’s no-pseudonym policy and will allow the critic to use a pen name in his/her byline.
Send a resume, cover letter and clips/writing samples to Jimmy Boegle at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than noon on Wednesday, June 1.
