Steve DeAngelo is about to join the ranks of  Nancy Botwin and Walter White as cable TV's favorite drug dealer. The only difference is, is that Steve's a real person, not a fictional character. His business, Oakland’s Harborside Health Center, the largest medical-marijuana distributor in the country, is about to become the subject of a new Discovery Channel reality series. Weed Wars (yes, it's really called that) will focus on the day-to-day operations of the center, as it strives to serve 80,000 clients high-quality cannabis. 

The docu-soap will definitely tackle some controversial ground, given the varying nature of drug laws around the country. But kudos for Discovery for picking up a series that documents this topical issue. Here's hoping it airs back-to-back with a show about cake to further guarantee the stoner demographic tunes in.
