The Discovery Channel's Weed Wars is no more. According to a post on the Harborside Health Center website, "Nothing would please us more than to be able to continue with future episodes of Weed Wars. Unfortunately the Discovery Channel has made a much different decision and will no longer continue with future episodes. We do not know why, nor do we understand why, they made that decision."

Weed Wars brought Americans inside Harborside for a look at the normalization of cannabis in the U.S. Many viewers were truly stunned at the tableau: dozens of lab-tested strains; the peaceful, bank-like environment. The New York Times seemed downright jealous. And they should be. Oakland has it better than almost any place on Earth when it comes to access to medical cannabis.
