GOOD MEDICINE is a "workplace comedy with weed." Everyone knows where to get weed in LA. But the 'Dharma Collective'- a run-down Craftsman house in Hollywood, California- is where can you get the best weed, the biggest laughs and the family you wish you had. It may not be the cleanest or classiest medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles, but it is the funniest. Dharma Collective is owned by fearless Zen leader OM, a mellow guy with a secret lonely streak; it's staffed by kickass roller-derby chick TINA KUSH, wannabe playah RAJ, single struggling actress SAM and hipster music producer ATARI. GOOD MEDICINE follows their wild adventures as they get high- and hopefully find their higher purpose.
