medicalmarijuanaThe NY Times has an article about a new local show in the L.A. area called Cannabis Planet where viewers can learn about history, cultivation, legal issues, and even cooking with marijuana.

Despite being taken off the air by one television station, the shows executive producer Brad Lane has received only positive attention and more revenue from advertisers since Cannabis Planet found a new home with another station.

“ ‘We’re trying to show the legitimacy of this plant,’ Lane stated.

“Marijuana use has been depicted in the media for decades, though its presence has waxed and waned over the decades, from Cheech & Chong’s comedy albums and films in the late 1970s and early ’80s through more recent pot-centric efforts like Dave Chappelle’s ‘Half-Baked’ and Seth Rogan’s ‘Pineapple Express.’ On television, though, it has rarely risen above the level of a plot device or punch line — until recently.”
