Advance

I chose an advance article from the Minnesota Daily about the event “The Great Debate: Heads Vs. Feds." The sources of the article aren't entirely clear, but he did list several names within the article. The writer included: Steven Hager, the former editor-in-chief of High Times magazine and Bob Stutman, a former New York City agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency.
The angle of the story is the dynamics of these two individuals teaming up to do this traveling event together. Also, the angle is the purpose of the event itself, being that the Minnesota State Senate Judiciary Committee passed a bill on Tuesday to protect patients using medical marijuana from arrest by a close vote.
The writer includes the what, when, where and why. But she also included several interesting facts including that about the amount of marijuana seized in the United States last year.
