CannabisTV Censored, No Longer Airing On TV:
For more than 5 years now, I've dedicated many hundreds of hours and thousands dollars of my own money in the effort to create CannabisTV as an archive of the many thousands of videos about hemp and cannabis in an effort to educate and help those in need. I created thousands of DVDs that were handed out at local events and cannabis resource centers in Southern Oregon. My one hour show also aired weekly on RVTV, the local public access station operated by Southern Oregon University, but that partnership has unfortunately ended as of October 2013.
I have repeatedly had to dispute having CannabisTV classified as "Adult Material" that can't be shown before 10pm due to policies of RVTV. I had successfully explained that CannabisTV is an informative, educational show about health and wellness and was able to keep my Wednesday 8pm timeslot. Recently RVTV again implemented de-facto censorship by moving the show to midnight and reclassified the show as "Adult Material" again, citing the fact that illegal drug use was shown.
RVTV is being hypocritical though since other shows have displayed use of the drug Peyote which is also illegal. Add to that, the fact that images or video of illegal acts are shown daily on the news, things like arson, robbery, assault, murder and all sorts of other things, that what reporting the news involves, not advocating violence or illegal acts.
As a result of this decision based on ignorance and prejudice, CannabisTV will no longer air on RVTV or be available for online streaming via the RVTV website. You can still find new videos about cannabis, marijuana, hemp and the like on Youtube. When I started CTV 5 years ago, not many videos were available online for quick easy access to the truth about cannabis but we've now reached a tipping point and the end of this 75+ years of failed Cannabis Prohibition will soon come, though it's long overdue.
Please continue your efforts to educate people on how cannabis may help those in need of an alternative to the nasty prescription pills, there is a better option and it is medical cannabis. I will continue my efforts here in Oregon to crush the resistance that is trying to stop the implementation of medical cannabis dispensaries, so that we can provide a safe, steady supply of medicine to those who need it. The end of cannabis prohibition is within our sight, but we must continue the fight. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, and I will not rest while others with illnesses suffer in pain.
