[Disjointed] follows Ruth (Bates), a lifelong advocate for legalization, as she finally lives her dream as the owner of an Los Angeles cannabis dispensary. Joining her at Ruth’s Alternative Caring are three charismatic “budtenders” (Dougie Baldwin, Elizabeth Ho and Elizabeth Alderfer), her entrepreneurial twentysomething son (Aaron Moten) and a very troubled security guard who served in Afghanistan (Tone Bell).

Is everything better with weed?
That’s probably a controversial thing to assert; suffice to say that things will definitely be more interesting.
Especially, and there is completely a given, if Kathy Bates is the one dispensing your wafting tendrils of marijuana joy.
If you even doubt this, take a look at this whimsical 20 second teaser trailer for upcoming Netflix show Disjointed, which rather cleverly premiered on 4/20, a antional day for legalisation of marijuana (and, ahem, other things) in the United States.
Not much happens in the trailer narrative wise save for Kathy Bates standing at the door of the dispensary, smoking a joint with not a care in the world.
And really do we need more than that right now?
Hmmm, maybe some Cornflakes?
You can watch every single last smoke-wrapped episode of Disjointed (20 in all) on Netflix from August 25.
