Denver Post editor Greg Moore talks mainstream marijuana journalism

The Denver Post was approached by Colorado filmmaker Mitch Dickman to document the newspaper’s coverage of the first year of legal recreational marijuana after Denver Post Editor Greg Moore and the paper decided to create an online vertical, The Cannabist, dedicated to covering the blossoming industry.

Longtime Denver Post music critic and entertainment editor Ricardo Baca was named Marijuana Editor for the first-of-its-kind publication that launched in December 2013, and the rest is history.

Director of DPtv Molly Hughes goes Behind the Headlines with Moore to talk about the “Rolling Papers” film crew following him and his staff for the historic first year.

See the trailer for “Rolling Papers,” which debuts in theaters on Feb. 19, 2016.
