LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabis Planet, an educational television program about the
The premier episode will feature actor Cooper Andrews from AMC's The Walking Dead, who is relatively new to cannabis, explains why he chooses to use the plant as a medicine. Harvard's Dr. Lester Grinspoon is also featured discussing cannabis and autism, as is a father whose son suffers from Dravet's syndrome. Cannabis cooking with Chef Mike Delao, Hemp Facts with newscaster Pat Finerty and the "Higher Perspective", an esoteric look at the plant from comedian Ngaio Bealum round out the programming.
"We are very excited to help bring this important message of cannabis and hemp education directly into the living rooms of mainstream America," stated Greg Bozzani, CEO of Bozzani Motors, (one of the shows sponsors).
"Cannabis Planet is known as the '20/20 of 420' and we are proud to be a supporter of this topic, helping people to learn about the facts and benefits of the cannabis plant," Bozzani said.
Cannabis Planet intended to broadcast on both ATT/Direct TV and DISH Network, yet both networks refused to air the programming. The new distribution strategy for the show is to broadcast on major independent, full-power transmission stations around the country whose signals become "must-carry" to all television services within each specific market. Therefore, all TV households are able to receive the broadcast signal and watch the program, including DISH & ATT/Direct TV subscribers.
"Being banned is nothing new to us," claims Lane, "We have been banned by NASCAR, ATT/Direct TV, DISH Network, and a bunch of other independent stations who fear the would-be repercussions from the FCC. My question is why? The same government that prohibits this plant, listing it as a Schedule I drug with no medicinal value, also owns four patents on the medical efficacy of the plant!" Lane continued. "Someone has some explaining to do and Cannabis Planet asks those questions."
Banned by the major satellite services, Cannabis Planet will still reach them by broadcasting on independent stations into the following television markets premiering the weekend 10/14/17 – 10/15/17. Los Angeles (KJLA), Chicago (WOCK), San Francisco (KOFY), Philadelphia (WACP), Washington D.C. (WMDE), & Palm Beach (WHDT). The program is also available online at www.CannabisPlanet.com.
Cannabis Planet wanted to also broadcast on a New York station and on KHSV in Las Vegas (where cannabis is legal medicinally and recreationally) yet both stations refused to air the programming, claiming it was against their network policies.
