A new free monthly print magazine called Northeast Leaf is coming from four former senior High Times staffers.
The title will be published in partnership with Northwest Leaf Magazine and distributed across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine in September.
Joining the new venture are High Times’ former senior cultivation editor Dan Vinkoyetsky, EIC Michael Gianakos, director of technology Pete Thompson and advertising executive Michael Czerhoniak.
Leaf Nation founder-publisher Wes Abney stated: "With targeted media showing no signs of losing relevance, we're elated for this opportunity to bring such an amazing stable of proven veterans into the Leaf family. The world needs honest cannabis education and entertainment, and it is our promise to stay true to the plant and the people as we grow the Leaf Nation into the global leader for cannabis journalism."
Ten-year-old Northwest Leaf publishes in five markets that cover California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Maryland.
Vinkovetsky stated of the partnership, "With several popular magazines all having gone out of print, it makes perfect sense for us to continue our passion for the written word with such a respected, proven brand as The Leaf."
