When Orange County's independent TV station KDOC dumped Cannabis Planet, it wasn't too hard for executive producer Brad Lane to find a willing provider. As of August 13th, the half-hour show has been airing twice weekly on another local indie station, KJLA, which reaches around five million SoCal households, according to the New York Times in a profile of the show.

The show "focuses on medical, agricultural and industrial uses of the hemp plant, purposely ignoring marijuana’s recreational aspects," reports the Times, noting that viewers see very little smoking.
