In each episode, Killer Mike will tour each of the aforementioned cities, visit marijuana dispensaries and chat with guests such as comedians Jocelyn Chia and hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy.

Also, as each episode unfolds, the audience will be able to watch statistics and data provided by the Weedmaps data team to provide further context on marijuana history, social justice, and more.

On the other hand, Chris Beals, CEO of WM Technology, operator of Weedmaps, answered via email some questions about the docuseries. Among the questions he was asked was why he launched the docuseries.

Chris Beals responded, as Cannabisn24 reviewed, that as a leader in the space for nearly 14 years it is incumbent upon them to help change perceptions about the plant, which in many ways are inaccurate.

“We continue to look for opportunities to educate and change attitudes through creative content, and Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike is no different. This docuseries is yet another way for consumers to learn about the impact of cannabis through the lens of comedy and community in different cities across the U.S.,” Beals said, according to the media outlet cited.
