Weediquette is a documentary television series airing on Viceland that follows host, and Vice correspondent, Krishna Andavolu as he chronicles the science, culture and economics of the legalization of marijuana.

History[edit]

Weediquette started in 2012 as a weekly column by Abdullah Saeed and continued as a web series on Vice.com. It was one of the first shows to air on Viceland when it launched in February 2016. In 2014, Andavolu interviewed Uruguayan President Jose Mujica on his farm in Uruguay and smoked a joint during the interview.[1]
