In a sign of the times, two of Colorado’s more well-known political reporters are leaving their jobs to work in the marijuana industry.

Peter Marcus, who currently writes for the Gazette-owned, will become communications director for Terrapin Care Station — a Boulder-based cannabis company that’s expanding into Pennsylvania and Oregon. There, he’ll craft the company’s messaging and establish, according to a press release, “a one-stop online resource for journalists, elected officials, policymakers, industry leaders and business owners, and the general public, where marijuana news, counterpoints, opinions, facts, and data will be presented for free use and consumption.”

Kristen Wyatt, a career writer for the Associated Press, will soon join Marijuana Business Daily, which publishes online and magazine content for a business-oriented readership, in addition to offering other industry resources like conferences, directories and research. She’ll be covering hemp from an agricultural and business perspective.
