NBC Senior Editor Loves Marijuana

A senior editor for NBC News is leaving the peacock to become managing editor of Marijuana.com.  Al Olson says he's been a journalist and weed advocate since he was 14 - the age he smoked his first joint.

His first professional journalism gig? Fact checker for Mother Jones.

Maybe Al should have fact-checked the NBC headline: "First Man On The Moon, Neil Young, Dies"? Or the Brian Williams script that mistook Nigeria for Kenya?  Oh Dude.... wait a minute... maybe.......
