Medicinal Marijuana Shop Opens For Business In This Week's New 'South Park'
March 29th, 2010 2:24pm EDT
Cartman's favorite restaurant has been shut down and a store that sells medicinal marijuana moves in on an all-new episode of "South Park" titled "Medicinal Fried Chicken," premiering on Wednesday, March 31 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.
State Law in Colorado says it's legal to smoke pot if you have a physician's reference. 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 some weed but, meanwhile, Cartman will do anything to get his beloved fried chicken restaurant back.
