High Times for 'High Times'

Friday, December 13, 2013

Transcript

Unlike The Denver Post, High Times is not a new comer to the marijuana game, having covered the beat for 39 years. Bob talks with High Times editor-in-chief Chris Simunek about how the magazine reports on the world of marijuana, and whether pot coverage going mainstream will change High Times.

Can you tell me the name of the music that plays at the very end of this segment? I would love to find it. Thank You!

I thought the story was charming.

The interviewees were good sports, thoughtful and introspective, certainly not like Bill O'Reilly (briefly clipped having an apoplectic reaction to the idea of legal pot).

In a way, the "are you high now, do you get high at work? questions are what scientists have to put up with constantly, as in "do you believe that humans are descendants of apes? do you believe that human activity is modifying the atmosphere, and climate?" 500 years ago asserting that the Earth orbited the Sun could get you in a lot of trouble.

Why does every media person ask the pot people 1. Are you high now? and 2. Do you get high at work?
I have heard scores of wine reviews and NEVER heard the reviewer asked if they were sloshed.
Get a life.
