Medical marijuana store gets Discovery reality show -- EXCLUSIVE

byJames Hibberd

Discovery Channel is set to announce a potentially controversial new series: A docu-soap reality show set in the country’s largest medical marijuana distributorship and starring a pot reform activist. This fall, the network will unveil Weed Wars, where cameras follow the day-to-day dealings of a California ganja store.
The show follows Steve DeAngelo, the owner of Oakland’s Harborside Health Center, which serves 80,000 clients. According to the network, DeAngelo strives to provide patients with the highest-quality product and uses his business to promote the national regulation and taxation of cannabis.
“Weed Wars fearlessly pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world,” said Nancy Daniels, executive vp at Discovery Channel. “From the inner workings of the business to Steve’s distinctive leadership style, Weed Wars is a fascinating glimpse into this highly unique setting. Like Gold Rush or Deadliest Catch, these are guys pursuing their own version of the American Dream.”
California passed the Compassionate Use Act in 1996 that permitted legalized pot dispensaries where customers can select from a variety of toke-able or edible products if they have a doctor’s approval. Some have accused the Act of essentially legalizing marijuana. But in addition to providing relief to some patients struggling with severe illnesses, the passage has also resulted in a new breed of local-owned brick-and-mortar outlets at a time when retail stores are shutting down as commerce increasingly shifts to big box stores and Internet.
The show will follow the journey of the plant from germination to harvesting to sales at Harborside, which has opened up a second location in San Jose despite “constant police monitoring and security sweeps,” says to the network.
What do you think, will you check out Weed Wars this fall? It’s sort of like Cake Boss with pot … or not.

I really think it is a bad idea for them at this time with the way the Feds are acting and saying MJ has no medical value to giving The Feds documented proof of the way ppl are running and doing busness is just stupid. It's just asking for a bed in the pen.

I told the Mrs. that this was gonna happen, this is just the start, bums me out I'm getting so old, I really like to stick around and see how the MJ saga turns out. I figure two more presidents before MJ people get the freedom to grow without worry from the feds, anyway, I figured it would be a reality show on actual grow ops.

Saw the preview, looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Could be good for the industry if done right, but if done with all the cussing and bleeps like the other "reality" shows out there, it will be a black eye for the MJ industry.

Only time will tell.

That just sounds like an awful idea. Just going to give all the "anti MJ" people more ammo IMO. Especially if they're showing inside the dispensary and the people purchasing product.

Yea, mass media is about all about money, and money needs the largest possible audience and nothing draws a mass audience better than really stinky poo hitting the fan. So I have to believe this show will stink to high heaven and set back cannabis liberalization.
