Seth Rogen, Wiz Khalifa Launch New Shows via Pot Platform Merry Jane (EXCLUSIVE)

Merry Jane, the cannabis news and lifestyle media platform which received an Emmy nomination for its production role in VH1’s “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” has announced a new lineup of content including a new short-form series in conjunction with Wiz Khalifa and Taylor Gang, as well as new episodes of “Talking Buds,” the series helmed by Seth Rogen’s creative agency, Point Grey.

Also on tap: an interview of Floyd Mayweather, premiering ahead of the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight on August 26. In the GGN exclusive, Mayweather discusses coming out of retirement, business, sex, politics and, of course, cannabis. Also in the works is a Snoop-produced show called “Queens of the Stoned Age,” which will gather a diverse group of engaging women.

The Khalifa show combines elements of “Jackass” and “American Ninja Warrior,” with a weed theme. “Talking Buds” “humanizes various strains of cannabis, giving each a personality to creatively explain the effects of the strain when consumed,” the company stated in an announcement.

“Merry Jane will maintain its long-held tradition of collaborating with entertainment’s biggest names,” said Ted Chung, co-founder of Merry Jane. “Our goal is to change cultural and social perceptions of cannabis, and this nomination shows that we are doing exactly that. … Merry Jane has reached hundreds of millions of people across the globe, bringing cannabis related content to a mainstream audience. By showcasing the realities of modern culture through insightful and engaging programming, Merry Jane will continue to lead the fight to remove stigmas around cannabis and push for full legalization.”
