The creators of The Marijuana Show talk about the latest trends in the pot business.

A ten-year-old CEO pitches his “Paw Puddy” dog bones to perk up your ailing pup. A man drives cross country in his car made of hemp. A hyrdroponic farmer explains how to grow cannabis—or tomatoes—with only 3% of the water normally required. These are some of the contestants you’ll see on the second season of The Marijuana Show, a reality show its creators call “Shark Tank for Gangapreneurs.”

You’d think The Marijuana Show would be about escapism, but show creators and producers Karen J. Paull and Wendy Robbins claim gangapreneurs are the hardest working people they’ve met.
