Pot Barons of Colorado : A Personal Gripe About a Genuinely Cool Concept


Television


First of all, the show tends to be fairly informative and legitimately interesting, from the fully in depth look at the bureaucratic hurdles to the difference between producing medical grade versus recreational grade Marijuana to the edibles industry and the use of what is essentially the 'trim' to support the edible industry to the partnership between growers and retailers. All of this is both fascinating and educational.

But I am getting mighty dammed tired of the sheer, unadulterated whiteness of the show, and the inherent level of first world problems that come up, especially when you consider that it's wedged up against Lockup, which is where all the black people end up, and Colorado has been featured there, and I am more than willing to bet there's a substantial number of people of several ethnicities who would be great potential 'ganjapreneaurs' were it not for the inequalities in enforcement prior to legalization.

Sorry, I had to get that out of my system. Great show, oozes privilege, and is utterly unaware of it. My roommate ranted about it, and I calmed her down, but that stuck with me.
