Things are about to get a lot higher at Mile High City's paper of record, The Denver Post.
Steve McMillan, public policy editor for the Denver paper, tweeted this late Wednesday:

"The Denver Post is hiring an editor to oversee the development and maintenance of a recreational marijuana website," the photo of the ad reads.
At the time of publishing, the full job description had not been added to the Digital First Media job board, the owner of The Denver Post.
In 2012, Colorado voters made the limited sale, possession and growing of marijuana for recreational purposes legal for adults 21 and over. A64 states that adults can possess up to an ounce of pot, can grow as many as six marijuana plants at home (with only three flowering at any given time), but home-grown marijuana can only be for personal use and cannot be sold. However, adults can gift one another up to an ounce of pot.
The first recreational marijuana shops in Colorado will open their doors for the first time in U.S. history on Jan. 1, 2014. It is expected that more than 100 will make history on that day.
