The Boston Globe launched a new section of Globe.com dedicated to covering the politics, business, use, and impact of cannabis in the Northeast, the paper announced. The section will focus on Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Almost half of New Englanders live in a state that has recreational laws on cannabis on the books, the paper says. Another roughly 20 percent live within a one hour drive of a state that has legalized recreational use. “There is tremendous interest from those who are working within this space as well as the cannabis curious,” the paper said in its announcement.
“At launch, the Globe’s new cannabis vertical will have two full-time cannabis reporters, a digital producer, an editor, and include cannabis articles from our life-sciences partner STAT, lifestyle-focused reporting from Boston.com, and a deep bench of contributors,” said Matt Karolian, director, New Initiatives and general manager for the marijuana vertical.
