Who is the next marijuana millionaire? 'The Marijuana Show' features ganja-preneurs

DENVER - Have you seen ABC’s "Shark Tank?" It's the show that gives entrepreneurs a shot at making their dreams come true. But what about ganja-preneurs?

At "The Marijuana Show," it's all lights, cameras and cannabis, as contestants prepare to battle it out for millions of dollars.

“My family has put their life savings into about $400,000. So we're all in,” said entrepreneur Luke Johnson of Cloud CO Farms.

Johnson is one of more than a dozen contestants from all over the country who are in Colorado this week pitching their ideas and hoping to make some green. 

“People have risked everything,” said producer and director Wendy Robbins of “The Marijuana Show.”

Just like “Shark Tank,” four investors will decide who deserves a deal and who deserves to go home.

“We have over $10 million available to people over the next couple days," she said. 

Bruce Dietzen is one of the contestants hoping to take his budding business to the next level. Dietzen is the founder of Renew Sports Cars. He makes cars made out of cannabis.

“The body is made out of cannabis hemp,” he said.

Colorado's own Luke Johnson is also looking for a deal. Johnson is a cannabis farmer from Alamosa, hoping to produce cannabis oil for medicinal purposes.

“The farm will be cultivating 137-acres of CBD-rich non-psychoactive cannabis,” he said. “I'm definitely excited. I hope we can work out a deal and mostly looking forward to just trying to help as many people as we possibly can.”

Season 2 airs online this winter on streaming sites or on "The Marijuana Show" website.
