Your attention, please: The WeedLife Network is looking for journalists across the country, and across a wide spectrum of media platforms, to help keep our audience up-to-date on cannabis-related issues.
 
The legalization of marijuana for both recreational and medical use is a national issue, and we want to know what’s going on in your region when it comes to cannabis-related events, breaking news, etc.
 
This is not for bloggers or columnists, but for journalists – both established and newbies -- who would like to see their work appear across several rapidly-growing websites devoted to all things marijuana. That means writing objectively, preferably in short, declarative sentences and paying attention to the facts, while using information from several reputable sources.
 
We can’t pay you for your efforts, and that sucks. But your work will be looked at and edited by veteran journalists with decades of experience in video, print and Internet communications. And those journalists will give you positive critiques of your work as we go along, to help you hone your skills and perhaps prepare you for other ventures.
 
Written articles, once approved by editors, will be posted on WeedWorthy.com, one of The WeedLife Network’s most popular web sites.
 
And any videos that you shoot for us – whether a minute-long glimpse of a rally, festival, etc. or an extended interview with a newsmaker – will live on our video web site, SmokeUps.com. Depending on the video’s content, it might also end up as a print article on WeedWorthy.
 
If you’re interested, please email us to start the process: Send a note describing yourself, your background, where you live and your article/video ideas to:
 

 
We’ll get back to you as soon as possible. 
 
Thanks in advance; we look forward to hearing from you.
