|Video screenshot shows Hughes outside pot store.|
Reporter and self-described "fuddy-duddy" Trevor Hughes documented his first-ever marijuana purchase (not first legal purchase, but first in his entire life!) in a Fort Collins Coloradoan video about the booming pot industry now that recreational use is legal in the state.
Best part of the assignment: The paper reimbursed him for the $27 he paid for a gram of Blue Dream at the Medicine Man marijuana store in east Denver, with the understanding he'd immediately turn it over to the local sheriff to be destroyed. (Doubters take note: He videotaped that part, too.)
Hughes closes his video with the first thing that came to my mind: "Now, where's that expense report?"
