The New York Times has woken up on cannabis, all at once.
This is from an article today. NOT yesterday's - a different one.
“Harris” is Harris Marquesano, who died of an overdose in 2013.
If this newly skeptical attitude about cannabis continues, its importance will be hard to overstate. The Times still sets the agenda for English-speaking news organizations worldwide. It has only become more powerful as competitors like the Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal have scaled back their ambitions. (I’m not saying that because I worked there for a decade, either. At this point the door to my return is closed. And locked. And covered in sarin.)
At a minimum, the Times can probably make full national legalization of cannabis far less likely.
Whatever is driving this change - and I can easily imagine it may have come from personal experiences that high-ranking editors have had with their children - we should all welcome and encourage it.
