Looks like puffing pot is finally headed to prime time. A new TV show titled Cannabis Planet that’s all about medical marijuana — from cultivation to consumption and every little nugget in between — premieres tonight on a local San Diego cable channel that reaches four million households in Southern California (it can also be viewed online for 99 cents an episode here).

Segments include marijuana news bits, growing tips, features on the environmental and medicinal benefits of going green, the smokin’ grooves of house band The Shakedown and “Cooking With Cannabis,” chef Mike DeLao’s chance to highlight highly praised recipes like “Mike’s Medicated Vegan Salad.” The show is charmingly low in budget but definitely not short on ambition. “Cannabis is here to stay,” insists executive producer Brad Lane. “People need to accept that.”
