CONTACT Making another note ... - Dr. Christian Thurstone

For those of us keeping score at home: Michael Roberts and his editors at Denver alt-weekly Westword on July 30 published a third report mentioning Dr. Thurstone by name (and running a photo of him) without giving him a chance to respond or comment before publication.

In the world of responsible journalism, this is indefensible practice — but seeing that we’re talking Westword, it’s also understandable given how much this publication counts on the marijuana industry to make its ends meet.

You can read more about Mr. Roberts and Westword here and here — and, perhaps, consider yourself forewarned.
