How the Green Revolution Will Be Televised
There are traditional ways to find seed money for your cannabis enterprise, and then there’s the 21st-century way: by appearing on a reality-TV show.
Taking a cue from ABC’s successful Shark Tank, filmmaker Wendy Robbins and Broadway producer Karen Paull have created The Marijuana Show, an online series in which contestants pitch their companies and products to a panel of investors.
“Use a booming voice,” Robbins instructed the hopefuls at a recent New York casting call. “If you want $1.5 million, I gotta remember you.”
Pot and the NFL
No sport produces the kind of physical and psychological trauma that professional football does. That’s why former players are calling on the National Football League to recognize the benefits of cannabis.
Cannabis and the NFL are joined at the hip. Estimates suggest that more than half of the league’s players use it. That’s roughly 1,000 of the best head-smashers in the world.

Rather than joining the chorus of those who claim that cannabis is harmless in any amount and in all circumstances, he takes the more epicurean position that it is currently oversmoked and underutilized. As a founding member of Phytecs, the first company devoted to making plant-based medicines and nutraceuticals to treat the endocannabinoid system, Backes is itching to spark a new debate about how the plant can responsibly fit into a society that doesn’t outlaw or demonize it. He’s convinced of cannabis’s untapped potential, but he’s unconvinced that stoners will be leading the way to uncovering it.
