Financial news cable network CNBC has not yet concluded its campaign to educate its viewers about marijuana. The self-proclaimed premier global business channel today announced that “Marijuana USA” is set to debut on Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. Eastern. From the press release:
On the case is Trish Regan, the CNBC reporter whose book, Joint Ventures: Inside America’s Almost Legal Marijuana Industry will be out soon. “Marijuana USA” is an apparent follow-up to “Marijuana Inc.” — a documentary about California’s “Emerald Triangle,” the marijuana capital of America, another Trish Regan production.
Why is CNBC so obsessed with pot? We’ll be tuning in to “investigate.”
