We cover the growing cannabis industry

We can’t sell you weed, but we do deliver buzz.

Alongside legalization on Oct. 17, 2018, we launched the oz. as an email newsletter out of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. We’ve since published seven print magazines!

Meet the Founder

David Wylie | Publisher

Hi! I’m a B.C.-based journalist and founder of the oz. I’ve been working in newspapers in some capacity or another for about 20 years. I love print, which is part of the reason why I publish a magazine about cannabis.

I’m an active freelance writer. I have been published in the biggest newspapers in Canada, including the National Post, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Herald and The Province. Over the course of my media career I’ve been a publisher, managing editor, news director, editor, reporter, designer, and photographer. I’ve covered news in Toronto, Ottawa, Kelowna—and everywhere in between. I’ve specialized in technology, video games, wineries, weed, energy, climate, courts, crime, and more.

I also know my way around the corporate communications world through years of experience as an advisor, spokesman, and strategist. I work as a freelance copywriter and sponsored content creator.
