Bud Empire

Bud Empire  

Synopsis

The green rush is coming. Medicinal marijuana until very recently has been confined to the shadows, with dealers and customers forced to stay hidden from the law or to take risks through internet transactions.

Now the industry is emerging into the light, ready to be seen as a legitimate business that already employs thousands of people across the country. In this seven part series, History Canada’s Bud Empire follows Bob Kay, one of Canada’s most charismatic marijuana advocates. An uncompromising, wily entrepreneur who’s leading the charge in this nascent, high stakes world. But the road to success is no easy journey with the law still looming large over a grey industry that is only quasi-legal.

The race to the top has begun. It starts with a bud but who can turn it into a dynasty?
