Flack Job of the Week: Even Weed Needs a Spokesman

Today we inagurate a new feature, perfectly designed for slow Fridays in DC (at least until the Bush Administration does a Friday afternoon bad news dump). The Flack Job of the Week highlights a communications job opening that ambitious DC career climbers might want to take a look at. This week's job comes from Roll Call Jobs:

Job Title Assistant Director of Communications
Employer Marijuana Policy Project
Posted 09/14/06
Job Description

COMMUNICATIONS. Ast Dir of Comm for fast-paced, respected marijuana policy reform lobby. Strong writing & speaking skills req. $35K.

Actually, the disappointing part is how boring this job announcement is. Some alternative slogans, courtesy of PF contributors:

"Positions reports directly to Mary Jane."
"Does your job give you a high? This one will!"
"We don't mean to be blunt, but we need someone immediately."
"This position requires frequent joint projects with colleagues."
"Must be able to attend daily staff meeting at 4:20 p.m."
