Re: “Is the Gazette's new marijuana series a joke?

From Christine Tatum's Facebook:

I just read that Colorado Indy report. It's ludicrous -- as are so many of the charges leveled at Chris and me.
Good thing I remain royally amused on one level:
Newsrooms see nothing wrong with allowing pot users to analyze and report on drug policy and write pro-weed columns and tell us how to baste our Thanksgiving turkeys with THC.
And then a journalist whose research has led her to very different conclusions comes along, and she's married to a doctor who stands against legalization with every major medical society in the developed world, and has spent years watching the travesties these pot-loving journalists clearly don't want to bother reporting, and everyone blows up with cries of lapses of journalism ethics when I speak or write.
It's hard for me to take them seriously.
And it's even tougher for me to care about the sentiments of a publication like The Independent, which probably derives about 15 percent of its annual revenue from marijuana-related ad sales.
