There's a new show in town; and it's looking for people with high aspirations.

The creators of a new reality show are hoping to cash in on the legal marijuana industry in Colorado. It's called “The Marijuana Show” and is being pitched as a cross between “Shark Tank” and “The Apprentice.”

Nate Johnson owns the Queen Anne Cannabis club in Seattle. He says since clinching the division demand for “beast mode” a strain of marijuana named for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has skyrocketed. Another big seller is green and blue pot laced cupcakes. But dispensary owners aren't the only one enjoying the idea of two pot friendly states going head to head.  read more »
