Miami New Times is looking for a local freelance reporter to cover Florida's burgeoning marijuana scene. The ideal candidate will have a college degree and at least one year of experience reporting on public policy for a credible news publication.
Knowledge of pot laws in other states, as well as in Florida, is a plus. The reporter will contribute occasional reported, written, and photographed pieces containing both consumer and industry information to the New Times website, print newspaper, and e-newsletters.
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter, resumé, and clips to email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
