Since it launched in 2008, Vanguard has become a trademark investigative documentary series on cable and has been nominated for five Emmys, and received prestigious awards for journalism including the Livingston Award, the Prism Award, the DuPont Award and the 2010 Peabody Award and the 2010 Television Academy Honor.
And in this case, on Monday, November 28 at 9 pm ET/PT, Current TV’s award-winning investigative series “Vanguard” will present “The War on Weed.” In this episode, Christof Putzel takes a look at how America’s biggest cities are taking very different approaches to weed. It’s high times in LA (and California) where laws have been dramatically relaxed in recent years. In contrast, New York is seeing more and more of its citizens arrested for low-level pot offenses, disproportionately affecting minorities. It is a big business in Denver where local government supports the economic benefits of the plant and in Seattle, while marijuana is illegal; local officials have made enforcing the law the lowest priority for the police.
