Netflix is getting into the drug business

Posted: 28 August 2017 1:49 pm News


Smoking is the next frontier for the streaming giant.

No longer content with dominating the world of streaming TV, Netflix has decided to add weed-farmer to its resume.

To promote its new comedy series Disjointed, which sees Kathy Bates running a cannabis shop in Los Angeles, the streaming service is developing unique strains of marijuana inspired by its most weed-happy shows. Along with Disjointed itself, BoJack Horseman will be getting a strain called ‘Prickly Muffin’, Arrested Development will huff the ‘Banana Stand Kush’ and Orange is the New Black will get feisty with the ‘Poussey Riot’.

Unfortunately, you won’t be signing up to an all-you-can-smoke subscription service any time soon, as US federal regulations mean Netflix can’t sell marijuana by mail order. Instead, these promotional strains will be on sale at a pop-up shop at Alternative Health Herbal Services in West Hollywood.

We’ve seen some weird promotions before, but we can safely say this one hits a new high.
