Medical marijuana in Denver on CNN's mind again during Jim Spellman's "Reefer Row" tour

It was just last July when Westword marijuana reviewer William Breathes was interviewed by CNN about Denver's medical cannabis scene -- and even though MMJ isn't supposed to be addictive, the network appears to be hooked on the subject.

How else to explain the latest report by correspondent Jim Spellman, in which he inspects dispensaries on South Broadway, dubbed "Reefer Row"?

In the piece, Spellman chats at length with Lotus Medical's Shawna Santus and references both Breathes (although not be name this time) and Westword. He counts more than a hundred weed-related ads in a recent issue -- for which our sales staffers are eternally grateful.
