Tidal Wave of Publications Aimed at Marijuana Market
Working with Weed
The LA Weekly reports on an explosion of new marijuana magazines opening up in the LA market place. Grow Magazine recently opened its own office in that area and is competing with these new publications. Many of them are created inthe mold (albeit much flimsier) of the industry leader, High Times, with bikini clad girls displaying buds… Tina Dupuy, a former comic, points out in the LA Weekly article there often there isn’t much to that kind of writing other than “‘Here’s some real good weed’ and ‘Here’s how you make a bong out of an apple.”
As a writer for Grow, Eric Sligh and I have been attempting to put out other kinds of stories such as what is it like to be raised by Marijuana farmers and domestic violence in the marijuana culture. We’d like to keep putting out these kinds of pieces. Does anyone have any suggestions?
