Denver Newspaper Hires Professional Pot Critic

Denver is at the peak of a citywide pot boom.

It all started after the U.S. Attorney General's office — in a shift of policy since the Bush administration — announced in 2009 that it would not prosecute marijuana users if their state permits use of the drug for medical reasons.

"It just blew up from there," William Breathes tells Weekends On All Things Considered host Guy Raz. [...]

So Breathes — employed by Westword, Denver's weekly alternative newspaper — became perhaps the first professional marijuana critic in the country. William Breathes is his pen name, of course. Like a food critic, he remains anonymous to the businesses he reviews.
