Remember when that KFC joint in Palms was turned into a medical marijuana dispensary last year? Now it's getting some pop culture, OG Kush love, thanks to the latest episode of South Park.

In the episode, two new Colorado laws went into effect, legalizing medical marijuana and banning fast food in low income areas, meaning it was banned throughout the whole state. Cartman freaks and finds himself immersed in the dangerous black market world of Kentucky Fried Chicken. As for marijuana, some found an interesting way to give themselves testicular cancer. It's ridiculous. It's hilarious. You can watch it here.

It's all a nice commentary on California, where laws have gone into affect banning fast food in low income communities and medical marijuana dispensaries are a big controversial deal.
