WHAT IS EAST COAST GROW?
East Coast Grow is a dramatic comedy series about DC's marijuana industry. The series follows a group of industry professionals as they attempt to navigate DC's landscape of medical cultivation and broader legalization with well-intentioned enthusiasm, which often results in more trouble than they expect.
DC is a town where ambitious young people have long been gravitating in hopes of elevating themselves through the ranks of power. It is also a town with a unique local culture and history completely separate from politics and business interests. East Coast Grow explores these two worlds through the scope of the city’s new marijuana industry, catalyzed by the medical field and broader legalization. The industry is rooted in its own political fights and entrepreneurial ambitions, the hurdles of which continue to impact how residents and patients benefit from it. And as the first East Coast city to legalize marijuana, the example it sets will likely impact those to follow.
