Discovery Channel’s marijuana reality show still a go, despite massive tax bill
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/10/06/discovery-channel... /

Despite recently receiving an enormous tax bill from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Oakland’s Harborside Health Center will still be the subject of a Discovery Channel reality show this winter.

“As they say, the show must go on,” Joshua Weinberg, Discovery Channel’s vice president of communications, explained in an email to Raw Story. “Weed Wars will premiere on Discovery Channel as planned.”

Harborside owes the IRS $2.5 million in back taxes, thanks to the recent enforcement of a federal law that prohibits organizations that traffic in “controlled substances” from taking tax deductions.
