New Weed-Themed Shows from Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa on Deck at Merry Jane

*Merry Jane, the cannabis news and lifestyle media company which earned an Emmy nod for its production role in VH1’s “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” has announced a new lineup of content including a project with Wiz Khalifa and Taylor Gang and a female-themed series from Snoop Dogg.

According to Variety, the unnamed Khalifa show combines elements of “Jackass” and “American Ninja Warrior,” with a weed theme.

The Snoop-produced series, called “Queens of the Stoned Age,” will reportedly gather a diverse group of engaging women.

Also in the works are “Talking Buds” helmed by Seth Rogen’s creative agency, Point Grey. The series “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.

Also on tap is an interview of Floyd Mayweather, premiering ahead of the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight on Saturday August 26. In the GGN exclusive, Mayweather discusses coming out of retirement, business, sex, politics and, of course, weed.

“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.”
