When you’re a reporter covering medical marijuana policy, what could possibly go wrong?
I interviewed Michael Montgomery for this story and directed the animation with Arthur Jones. Audio production by Ariane Wu. This story was produced for the Center for Investigative Reporting and was posted on The I Files. I conceived this story as the pilot episode of a storytelling series about journalists originally called OFF THE RECORD. The series was acquired by VICE Media, Inc. in August 2013 and is now called CORRESPONDENT CONFIDENTIAL. See the trailer and new episodes on VICE.com.
