The Blue Grass Boys shows how pot growers go about doing their business in the state of Kentucky, which is the third largest producer of marijuana in the United States. It also highlights the various ways they go about hiding their activities, despite local law enforcement's seemingly relentless efforts to stop them. But some of the growers' antics seem so wacky that you can't help wonder if it's all being staged. Meanwhile, the constable's consistent failure to catch them seems a bit too far-fetched, too.

Regardless of how true to life the show is, Red and his colorful clan are likable and fun-loving. Some folks will also find the frequent Dukes of Hazzard-like police chases around the dusty mountain backroads entertaining. But these humorous moments make it easy to forget that they are breaking the law, and that their activities have real-life, negative consequences that go beyond the state line.
