Lately the Discovery Channel has been promoting a block of programming they call “Weed Wednesdays” featuring two shows, Pot Cops and Weed Country. Pot Cops is exactly what the title says, a show that follows police as they arrest marijuana growers. Weed Country pretends to show both sides of the equation by featuring interviews with pot growers in addition to cops, but the growers they feature come off as money-hungry opportunists and are not representative of our culture. The Discovery Channel is guilty of the worst kind of exploitation: They are making money off of persecution.
