The Washington Post’s Sunday magazine tackled marijuana legalization with what they called “a reported fantasy, a look at the State of Pot in America in 2020, based on research conducted in 2010.”
Written as a look back on a decade of change on the eve of an imagined Ohio vote to legalize pot, the piece rather cleverly recounts what sociologists, criminologists, economists, and cannabis entrepreneurs think could happen if Proposition 19 passes in California on Tuesday.
The package also includes a look at sophisticated boutique growers in California, transcripts of Q&As with the Post’s garden columnist and a videographer, and a reporter on the series. Accompanying videos explore the California campaign and D.C.’s medical marijuana efforts. Photo galleries offer another look at growers and their crops and an imaginary ad campaign for a marijuana boutique in Washington.
