The job market goes to pot

Gone to pot

Inquire within: Denver, Colo., held a marijuana industry job fair, with companies seeking employees with relevant experience (Page A13).

Job-seekers looking forward to a similar career fair in Washington state should prepare their resumes now. We recommend a nice-quality paper stock made from hemp; a businesslike type font besides Comic Sans and no Doritos-dust fingerprints.

Kilory was here, too: When arrested, a vandal who scrawled “I love Rachael” at a prehistoric cave site in Nevada faces 10 years in prison (Page A12).

On the bright side, his prison cell graffiti about Rachael will be studied by archeologists 5,000 years from now.

Shocked! Shocked! An upscale Las Vegas resort has agreed to pay a $500,000 fine after some of its employees were caught in a sting selling drugs and providing prostitutes to undercover officers. The resort also said it would change its training procedures to prevent future misconduct (Page A12).

Wording in the employee manual will explicitly remind employees, before providing drugs or hookers, to ask, “Are you a cop?”
