Discovery Cancels 'Weed Wars' CelebStoner / 3,21,2012 America's first reality-TV series about marijuana, Weed Wars, will not return to the Discovery Channel. The show, featuring Oakland's Harborside Health Center, debuted last December. "Nothing would please us more than to be able to continue with future episodes of Weed Wars," Harborside posted on their website yesterday. "Unfortunately, the Discovery Channel has made a much different decision and will no longer continue with future episodes. We do not know why, nor do we understand why, they made that decision." Over four one-hour episodes, Weed Wars focused on the daily operation of Harborside, the Bay Area's largest medical-marijuana dispensary. It made two of the proprietors, Steve and Andrew DeAngelo, TV stars. However, when the DeAngelos both stated they don't favor legalization of marijuana for recreational use, the show faced a backlash.

Since Weed Wars, National Geographic launched American Weed about dispensaries in Fort Collins, Colorado.
