Cannabis Planet TV Airs Saturday With Help of Robert Platshorn

God's green plant now has a friend in cable television as the new show Cannabis Planet TV debuts on several stations across the United States, including South Florida's WHDT. The man who is partly responsible for getting it aired is Palm Beach pot activist and convicted smuggler Robert Platshorn, who is the program's media director.

Los Angeles-based Executive Producer Brad Lane began airing the program to promote the benefits of marijuana. Cannabis Planet TV debuted on station KJLA in July 2009, but since then, Lane has had trouble getting it aired on TV stations beyond California because its content was deemed too controversial.
