Things That Actually Exist: Professional Pot Critic

Have you ever gotten in trouble at work for not being stoned? That's the type of slacking that could get William Breathes reprimanded. "William Breathes" is the pseudonym for one of the country's first "pot critics," a very lucky young man who reviews medical marijuana for the Denver Westword. As Breathes explains in the way of a job description, "I get paid to smoke pot and write about it. I can be high and my boss knows it." Before you go running to Colorado newspaper sites to look for job openings, know that Breathes has a journalism degree and, according to the paper's Managing Editor, a knowledge of basic public policy about the subject. He "can also punctuate, and he could spell, which was different than a lot of people who applied for the job." (Via CNN Money)
