A multimedia news site about a global issue. Incubating at the Made in NY Media Center in DUMBO with support from the Brown Institute for Media Innovation, a partnership between Columbia Journalism School and the Stanford School of Engineering.
Cannabis Wire was born in the summer of 2012 after two years of reporting on cannabis across America. The site wasn't up and running for long before we got a book deal from The New Press to write A New Leaf: The End of Cannabis Prohibition, which was published in February 2014. A New Leaf received great praise, including a review in The New York Review of Books. We appeared as experts on WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show and on the History Channel documentary Hooked. We spoke about our book at The Cato Institute and at universities from coast to coast.
Most importantly, despite being on the back burner while we wrote the book, Cannabis Wire never left our minds. So we're back, and preparing for relaunch.
See you in 2015.
