Wanted: Medical marijuana critics to write for Motor City Muckraker

marijuana budAre you a state-certified medical marijuana user? Do you have knack for writing? Do you have a good understanding of pot strains and products?

The Motor City Muckraker is looking for freelance medical pot reviewers to evaluate dispensaries, co-ops, caregivers and others who provide marijuana to patients. The reviewer would test new products, find the best smoke shops and make recommendations that are useful to the more than 115,000 registered marijuana patients and 27,000 caregivers in Michigan.

We are not advocating recreational drug use. Our mission is to educate medical pot users on new laws, dispensaries, products and the most effective strains for individual ailments.

Michigan residents voted in 2008 to legalize medical marijuana. In the past two years, voters decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana in numerous Michigan cities, including Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint, Ypsilanti and Kalamazoo.

The changes are part of a shifting attitude toward pot. Last month, President Obama said that marijuana was no more dangerous than alcohol.

Michigan residents voted in 2008 to legalize medical marijuana. Now more than 115,000 people are legally permitted to smoke pot. An additional 27,000 residents are certified to grow marijuana as a caregiver for a patient.

Although a Michigan Supreme Court decision last year prompted many dispensaries to close, plenty of medical marijuana storefronts still operate. In December, the state House approved a bill that would remove any gray areas and legalize dispensaries.

If you are interested in working as a freelancer or have further questions, send us an email at submissions@motorcitymuckraker.com with a brief description of your qualifications for reviewing medical pot and marijuana products. Writing skills are a plus.

All emails will remain private.
