We can confirm the Discovery Channel will air an Oakland-based Medical Marijuana Reality Show. Weed Wars comes December 1st, 2011. We’ve noticed, over the last few months, there have been video cameras filming people legally buying weed, hash and baby marijuana plants, at the Harborside Health Center marijuana dispensary, for an upcoming reality TV show! We signed wavers to allow us to be filmed months ago. And, all our contacts working at the dispensary we’re bound by non-disclosure agreements about the taping, so we were forced to keep this shit a secret.
The cameras filming inside Oakland’s Harboside Health Center, probably the coolest, most forward-thinking, and the largest medical marijuana dispensary around, were from the Discovery Channel. The station that delivers stoner staples like Destroyed in Seconds and Explosions Gone Wrong, is set to deliver Weed Wars, a new reality TV show chronicling our pal Steve DeAngelo’s daily dealings while running a wildly popular, legal medical marijuana dispensary that services more than 800 marijuana patients a day, including us. DeAngelo is also the owner-operator of a Silicon-Valley-based marijuana dispensary, owns a weed-testing lab and a security agency, plus a few other businesses. He’s considered a leader in the medical marijuana industry and is a well-known activist…and he’s seen here holding our STICKER. (want a FREE one?)
Weed Wars, from what we hear, was originally slated to feature several California-based marijuana dispensaries in a one-off documentary type-thing, maybe that’s how the show got it’s lame name, but upon filming the action at the Harborside, producers decided to ditch all the other pot shops and focus their efforts solely on the Harborside as well as turn the whole project into an ongoing reality television show.
“Weed Wars fearlessly pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world,” says Nancy Daniels, of the 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.”
So…if you want to see where we get our beautiful weed plants and killer green bud…then tune in to Weed Wars premiering this fall on the Discovery Channel.
