"Weed Wars" (Discovery Channel TV show) is a reality docu-series that features the now-legal business of the country's leading medicinal cannabis dispensary from the inside.

Although it is a familiar story: a start-up business, demanding clients and the ever-looming possibility that it could all go belly up — this is not exactly a typical business. "Weed Wars" follows Oakland's Harborside Health Center, the nation's largest medicinal cannabis dispensary serving over 80,000 patients. The new series pulls back the curtain on a once illegal and still controversial world. In addition to founder and executive director Steve DeAngelo and his staff, "Weed Wars" follows the journey of the plant itself from seed germination to harvesting. Meet the growers and "patient farmers" whose job it is to provide the "medicine" — the buds — that will eventually be purchased and used by thousands of clients, many of whom feel their lives have been forever changed by the plant. From the earnest and knowledgeable front counter staff to the rigorous lab testing of the cannabis to City Hall protests and the constant police monitoring and security sweeps, the "Weed Wars" TV show offers a look at a world unlike any other.

"Weed Wars" is produced for Discovery Channel by Braverman Productions. Chuck Braverman is executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Cameo Wallace is executive producer.
