New CNBC Documentary Explores Colorado’s $600 Million Marijuana Industry

A CNBC documentary — ‘Marijuana Country: The Cannabis Boom,’ — was released on Monday. The movie sets out to explore many unique avenues of Colorado’s widely watched and much publicized legal marijuana market.

CNBC correspondent Harry Smith interviews professionals, patients, and politicians about the intricacies of the nascent industry.

Smith uncovers modern cannabis culture in a way that mainstream media outlets often fall short of, with entire sections dedicated to the profiling of successful ganjapreneurs in Colorado and the struggles of a “medical refugee” family, who came to Colorado to have legal access to the high-CBD marijuana strain, Charlotte’s Web. Smith also investigates the legal market’s impact on the black market, which remains a very real option in Colorado.

The documentary premiered Monday evening, but is available at with your cable provider login.
