Discovery Channel cancels “Weed Wars” | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    This show was tying to be something that it should not have been . Instead of showing the good things tht marijuana is doing for people and how it could be beneficial in the long term, Discovery Channel portrayed a bunch of jagaloons attempting to run a legal drug business. Every employee was constantly high, although they didn’t seem to have any afflictions that would have made weed an appropriate medicine for them. Sending the stoned accountant to the Board of Review to get your taxes reduced?! Having the owner not show up to that meeting?! Everyone was constantly taking from the store’s profits, and they all seemed way too naïve to be running one of the first legal weed clinics. I’ was and still am surprised that they make the most profits out of anybody. What Discovery should have shown were people that were on the forefront of healing and someone with some actual business experience showing us how to run a weed shop successfully. Maybe discovery was trying to show the world that these fledgling industry leaders actually cannot uccessfully sell weed legally, in which case, I think they are wrong, because there are shop owners that know how to make money selling weed and go more in depth about how this medicine truly is beneficial. Either or Discovery channel, this show was meant to fail from the start.

    Im not sure how to feel about this.

    Yes it gives a non cannabis person an insight into our world, we are not criminals and are not evil people but truly how many non cannabis “people” watched that show, it would be like me watching a show surrounding alcohol, I wouldnt.

    Then there is the side where what was said on the show didnt really help any legalization and some stuff that just wasnt right about cannabis reform. These opinions of just a very small segment of our community being on a show that mainly cannabis consumers watched wasnt a message I would want out to the masses of cannabis “people”, but thats me.
