Our VICELAND show Weediquette is back for a second season and host Krishna Andavolu has a crop of new stories covering marijuana's movement from the counterculture to the mainstream.

On the first episode, Krishna looks into the challenge many parents face when using pot and raising kids. In states where weed is illegal, parents who use marijuana for medical or recreational reasons fear they might lose their children to Child Protective Services. Krishna travels to Kansas to meet two mothers struggling to regain custody of their children after the state deemed they were irresponsible parents for using marijuana.
