SoCal Public TV Further Boosts HumCo Pot Rep

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 11:53 AM

Our Claim to FameSouthern California public television affiliate KCET recently produced a report on Humboldt County -- which they say is known as "the pot capital of the world" (eat it, Amsterdam!) -- and our conflicted feelings about Prop 19. The segment was picked up last week by PBS's prestigious big dog, the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. KCET Associate Producer Alexandria Gales tells the Journal that the "full version" of the story will air tonight on KCET program SoCal Connected

Here, reporter Judy Miller previews the segment in a discussion on SoCal public radio.

Question: Does such coverage further besmirch whatever's left of our county's good name? Or should we embrace it as free marketing? You decide.
