‘High Profits’: New CNN Series Profiles Colorado Pot Business Owners

High Profits follows the owners of Breckenridge Cannabis Club as they build their marijuana business. Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire are described by the network as “two business-CNN logominded, dream-seeking, relentless visionaries with a plan unlike any other – to franchise marijuana.” The eight-part series will be produced by Austin-based Bat Bridge Entertainment. In the months since Colorado became the first state in the country to legalize the use and sale of recreational marijuana, BCC has grown from a $515,000-a-year medical marijuana dispensary with four employees to a $5 million-a-year business of 30 employees, CNN said, noting that the couple recently bought a competing business in a neighboring resort town. Each one-hour episode of High Profits will examine this booming new industry, following two entrepreneurs as they manage a highly lucrative chain of retail marijuana stores and one of the largest grow facilities in the state — when the product lining their shelves, and pockets, continues to be classified by the federal government as an illegal Schedule 1 drug.
