San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 05, 2014

The United States Weed Channel, Inc. today announced the launch of a special video channel that provides educational and entertainment programming strictly based around cannabis content. The channel, now available on Roku is also being prepped for distribution on Amazon, Apple, Google and other streaming networks.

The U.S. Weed Channel (USWC) is the brainchild of entrepreneur and activist Shane Doull, who was arrested twice and forced to close down his medical cannabis dispensary and face California’s Superior Court system. “I did everything correctly–to the letter of the law and still was arrested,” states Doull. “When law enforcement can’t get it right, it sends the wrong signal to the general public. I felt it was important to have an outlet to inform the American public about everything related to marijuana.”

Twenty states and the District of Columbia already have legalized medical or recreational marijuana. (Missouri legislators have approved a limited bill to allow the use of hemp extract to treat some people with epilepsy; it is awaiting Gov. Jay Nixon’s signature.) Several states – including Florida (medicinal), New York (medicinal) and California (recreational) – are considering some form of legalization. Poll after poll reveal a march toward legalization, with a recent CNN national survey showing 55 percent of all Americans now favor it, compared to just 16 percent some 25 years ago.

USWC’s series of free programs keeps the adult viewer up-to-date with information related to the legalization of marijuana, provides factual knowledge in an educational format, safety tips, newscasts, medical updates and insightfully analyzes recent social acceptance. The channel also provides a lighter look at marijuana activity as well, with shows such as the “420 Honeys Gameshow”, “Happy Farmers”, “Comfort Cannabis Cookery” and even a “Chill Channel” where you can just watch the grass grow, literally.

USWC is advertiser and viewer-donation supported, thus free to the general public. However, viewers are encouraged to join the the ‘Be A Bud Club’ where members can receive prizes, free products from supporting advertisers, gain access to live events before other viewers and other benefits.
