Discovery Greenlights 'Weed Wars'

MarijuanaFirst the Catholic Church, and now marijuana -- Discovery sure is taking its new programming slate in some interesting directions. The network has announced 'Weed Wars,' a new reality show about a medical marijuana dispensary.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show follows Steve DeAngelo, a pot reform activist and owner of Oakland's Harborside Health Center. The center serves 80,000 clients.

"'Weed Wars' fearlessly pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world," Nancy Daniels, executive vice president at Discovery Channel, told EW. "Like 'Gold Rush' or 'Deadliest Catch,' these are guys pursuing their own version of the American Dream."

Look for 'Weed Wars' to debut this fall.

In January, Discovery announced 'The Exorcist Files,' a look at investigations into hauntings and demonic possessions.

The 'Weed Wars' announcement comes hot on the heels of New Jersey giving the greenlight to medical marijuana laws. We smell bi-coastal potential spinoffs!

Tell us: Will you watch 'Weed Wars'?
