Marijuana, Inc., Inside America's Pot Industry - January 22nd on CNBC
    #187166 - 01/22/09 08:24 PM (7 years, 10 months ago)

I'm sure this was posted here before, but here's a short notice reminder people. 

Starts in about 40 minutes for me.

<span style="font-style: italic;">Inside America's Pot
Industry</span><br>
Premieres Thursday, January 22nd on <a
href="http://www.cnbc.com/id/28281668/" target="_blank">CNBC</a><br>
<br>
<span style="font-weight: bold;">ABOUT THE SHOW</span><br>
Host Trish Regan focuses primarily on Northern California, what she
calls "ground zero for marijuana."<br>
<br>
Trish Regan interviews medical cultivators, tours Oaksterdam, surveys "Mexican grows" in the mountains
and, in the most impressive segment, profiles former smuggler Bruce
Perlowin.<br>
<br>
Bruce Perlowin imported more then 100 tons of Colombian Gold
into San Francisco via fishing boats in the late '70s and early 80s.
"We saw ourselves as modern-day swashbucklers," Perlowin explains. He
made millions of dollar before getting nabbed by the FBI and spending
nine years in jail.<br>
<br>
In the NoCal segments, Mendocino is characterized as the "wild wild
West," where more than 60% of the county's economy is marijuana-based.
Regan allows for plenty of voices here, from hardened growers to weary
cops to one family that decides to move way after a grow house next
door burns down.<br>
<br>
During a copter ride over Lake County, Regan asks the pilot if they're
winning the war on marijuana. "No, we're not winning," he says blunty.
"The people that are winning are the people up here who are sustaining
a marijuana culture and that's basically what we have."<br>

Just read her bio.  She's got a fairly distinguished life.  I hope this report isn't complete bullshit.  I have a feeling it will show cannabis in a good light.

Dude, its mainstream media.  Its going to be used as propaganda to stop people from smoking weed.  Just how bad of a propaganda run is this gonna be?

half way through.  not sure what to think.  they placed emphasis on how much both apparently the federal government and state government are making money in taxes.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

Wow that really was a terrible show.  They basically took the perspective of wow look at this problem, this guy brought in this much cannabis to the country, this guy grew this much pot in northern CA, these law enforcement officials hate pot with a passion that puts MLK's passion to shame, this guy started oaksterdam.  NO really intelligent analysis of the real issues.  Piss pour.  I want to send a hateful message to the producer of that show.  just terrible. 

Anyone see the National Geographic doc about cannabis?  It was a good one.

Yeah-- them seemed to lean the spin more towards "marijuana is evil waste of human integrity" and less toward "Marijuana is obviously less harmful than Alcohol"  or "marijuana clearly helps many people across the country... gee whiz we should build a wall on the Mexico border to stymie the cartels..."  or some such happy horseshit


--------------------
So, in summation: The CIA, with a little help from the Nazis, accidentally helped invent hippies while they were trying to figure out how to brainwash communists.

Pour that on your granola and eat it, you zombie pinko bastards!"
