I suppose it was inevitable. With some states having already legalized marijuana, and many others thinking about it, pot’s become big business.

So now comes, The Marijuana Show, what the producers are saying is the first-ever marijuana reality competition show to launch on Tuesday, Nov. 18. Right now, the show will be available for viewing only on the Web, but “we shot with five pro cameras in HD in preparation for a network or cable offer,” says show director Wendy Robbins.
Isn’t a reality show about smoking pot an oxymoron? Isn’t the whole point of smoking pot to alter reality?
Whatever. For those expecting to see long-haired stoners rolling fat ones and preaching about the medical, or merely mental, merits of marijuana, this isn’t for you.
The Marijuana Show is more the white collar side of weed. Think Shark Tank meets The Apprentice. Contestants, or ganjapreneurs, pitch their ideas for marijuana-related products and services to a panel who must decide which one is worth mentorship and investment.
Snoop Dog is not on the panel, but he would have been a good choice.
“The judges are particularly interested in seeing ganjapreneurs with unique ideas in technology, apps, hemp, edibles and ancillary products; especially with solid business plans and financials,” says show co-producer Karen Paull.
There’s pot butter, pot apps, the cannabis country club, even a can of weed whipped cream to shoot single servings right into your mouth.
Apparently, smoking pot is becoming mainstream, and now can be the subject of the ultimate humiliation, a reality show where buttoned-up business men and women look to become the next marijuana millionaire.
Some might call that a buzz kill.
