In their continuing effort to be controversial, Discovery Channel is apparently soon going to announce a new show for their line-up that will be similar to Storage Wars; only, it'll take place in an Oakland medical marijuana dispensary shop, and will be called Weed Wars. And with that, a million stoners' ears just perked up.
The store being featured, Harborside Health Center, calls itself the largest legal retailer of cannibas. The show will follow the owner of said store, Steve DeAngelo, and focus on how the product is prepared and ultimately sold.
Nancy Daniels, Executive Vice President at the Discovery Channel, had this to say about the series: "Weed Wars fearlessly pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world. 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."
