This rant is about marijuana, pets and public relations. You see, a local news station asked to interview a “pet health expert” about a study that found marijuana poisoning in pets is on the rise. I was picked for the job.
My city legalized the sale of marijuana so I thought the interview would be an interesting experience. To prepare, I reviewed the study, loaded up on all sorts of marijuana facts, agonized over my TV wardrobe and drove 40 minutes to the downtown studio. I was pumped and ready for the interview.
Two questions later – one that the reporter actually answered herself – I found myself driving back home.
