"The Cannabusiness Report" explores some of the biggest questions surrounding cannabis culture and the booming industry evolving around it with FUSION's Ryan Nerz. In a special four-part series Nerz gives an insider's perspective on the mainstreaming of marijuana in the United States and beyond — from the entrepreneurs, or better yet Ganjapreneurs, who have made millions off marijuana to how technology is shaping the evolving industry. Nerz is a Yale-educated journalist who has written for NPR, Esquire, and the History Channel. Nerz is the author of MARIJUANAMERICA: One Man's Quest to Understand America's Dysfunctional Love Affair with Weed.

Fusion TV is a television cable and satellite news and satire channel owned by Fusion Media Group, an American multi-platform media company that is owned by Univision Communications, which relies in part on the resources of its parent company's news division, Noticias Univision. In addition to conventional television distribution, Fusion is also streamed online and on mobile platforms to subscribers of participating cable and satellite providers. Launched on October 28, 2013, the network's content features news, lifestyle, pop culture, satire and entertainment aimed at English-speaking millennials, including those of a Hispanic background; the channel is Univision's first major push into English-language programming. Fusion is based out of “NewsPort”, a converted studio facility at 8551 NW 30th Terrace in the Miami suburb of Doral, Florida that it shares with Noticias Univision and Univision flagship station WLTV-DT; it maintains additional studios in Los Angeles and bureaus in Mexico City, New York City, and Washington, D.C.
The Cannabusiness Report - Background - Netflix
Apart from being Univision Communications' first attempt in the world of English-language cable networks before El Rey Network, Fusion is ABC News' third attempt in the world of 24-hour cable news. In 1982, ABC News and Group W (then a division of Westinghouse) first launched a 24-hour news channel called Satellite News Channel. But due to low clearance from cable systems, both of them sold the channel after just over a year on the air to CNN (a subsidiary of Turner Broadcasting System, which has been under Time Warner's control since 1996), which shut it down. Twenty-two years later, in 2004, ABC News launched ABC News Now, which encountered the same problem.
