    The PBS news documentary series Frontline is gonna have a show on Marijuana.
    I believe it will be on next week, usually on Tuesdays. The promo seemed very
    much to be pro-legalization saying something like "are we fighting the right
    battle?" Also mentioning how many prisoners in jail are there for mj and how
    much money is being spent to "combat" it. I liked thier series on the "War on
    Drugs" and this should be really interesting..

    Keep tokin'

  2. I checked to PBS websight and the only time they had lised for a Fronline documentary of that nature was for last year. It was called Drug Wars. The websight is located here.

    It's listed on the website under "Future Shows", in fact it's gonna be the next one. I saw the promo after the watching "Medicating Kids" (another great show). I copied the info from the website:

    Busted: America's War on Marijuana
    04.17.2001 at 10:00pm (60 min)

    The United States government spends nearly $2.5 billion
    each year to process arrests related to marijuana production
    and sales, which often carry severe penalties. While the war
    on marijuana may be going strong do the results prove it a
    boom or a bust? FRONTLINE expolores the impact of
    current policy on stemming the tide of marijuana use and
    looks at how marijuana law enforcement is affecting
    American life.

    The have quite a bit of info on that page, but you have to go to "Upcoming programs" first. :)
