Noble DraKoln, Chief of Business Development for DMH stated, "DMH stays on the cutting edge of Pop Culture with a focus on Hip and RnB. With the surge in legalization of Marijuana across the United States we see the 'Cannabis Culture' as one of the fastest growing marketplaces that will open up extraordinary sponsor and advertising revenue potential. WeedTv offers a phenomenal opportunity to DMH to enter this marketplace and use our existing consumer base to drive viewers. It was very important to us to see that Players Network, the owner of WeedTv, is an established broadcast company with existing distribution relationships that would extend and expand our brands. We look forward to working with the Players Network and WeedTv team to grow this opportunity and eventually launch a standalone WeedTV magazine."

Mark Bradley, CEO of Players Network stated, "To say we are excited about DMH would be a significant understatement. They are an ideal partner to develop the "WeedTv Magazine" as well as to help us develop new promotional campaigns and contests to build audience and subscription membership in the future. Having the WeedTv Magazine allows a perfect vertical media extension that will be cross promoted, where viewers can both read articles in WeedTv Magazine or go to WeedTv and watch a related video story. Bradley adds, having two complementary media platforms and one with a mature loyal readership developed by TRUE of 15 years will offer immediate increased opportunities to our advertisers and sponsors.
