Medical marijuana is coming to South Park.
Cartman’s favorite restaurant has been shut down and a store selling medicinal marijuana moves in, on an all-new episode of South Park titled “Medicinal Fried Chicken,” premiering Wednesday, March 31 at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
State law in Colorado says it’s legal to smoke weed if you have a doctor’s recommendation. Randy is the first in line to buy some, but he’s turned away because there’s absolutely nothing wrong with him.
Randy is desperate to get a medical excuse to smoke pot, but meanwhile, Cartman will do anything to get his beloved fried chicken restaurant back.
Launched in 1997, South Park, now in its 14th season, remains the highest-rated series on Comedy Central. South Park repeats Wednesdays at 12 a.m., Thursdays at 10 p.m. and 12 a.m., and Sundays at 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.
Co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are executive producers, along with Anne Garefino, of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning show.
