So, in the spirit of all things pot in Illinois, we’ve got some ideas for when you’re stuck at home due to the snow, cold, and generally crappy weather. Hopefully you’ll be enduring this weather with some fine cannabis products from a location we’ve told you about here and here, or maybe even after a creative dinner. If you’re into catching some good TV, here’s the best weed shows on Netflix: Best marijuana comedies.
Weed Shows on Netflix: Best marijuana comedies
Disjointed – this comedy is the brainchild of Chuck Lorre, the creator of Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory. Starring Kathy Bates, this comedy follows the trials and tribulations of Ruth Whitefeather Feldman and her dispensary Alternative Caring. This takes place, of course, in the newly legal cannabis world in California. Highlights are the “Strain of the Day,” bits on YouTube, and the goofy pair known as Dank and Dabby. Though recently canceled, the show has some funny moments that are worth streaming. Check it out here.
Weeds – this one was a bit ahead of the curve, and ran for many seasons back in the aughts. The show follows the chaos of Nancy Botwin, a widow turned weed dealer in California. The show actually takes place before legalization, so many of the episodes and seasons are centered around shady deals and dodging law enforcement. There’s also interaction with the Mexican Cartel and the Russian Mob. Good times, check this out.
Family Business – this one is a french comedy that just came out in 2019. After learning France is about to legalize pot, a down-on-his-luck entrepreneur and his family race to turn their butcher shop into a weed shop. Created by Igor Gotesman, the show is a mix between How to Sell Drugs Online and The Middle. Interested? Check it out.
Just like everything else in the weed world, entertainment about marijuana is getting more sophisticated, and in turn, funnier. Look for dramas and documentaries to come on the scene as well, especially as we get more streaming channels. This ain’t your daddy’s weed any longer. Happy binge watching, and expect to see more weed content to come out soon.
