The High Court is a comedy television series that premiered on Comedy Central in 2017. The show is hosted by comedian and cannabis enthusiast Doug Benson, who also serves as the judge on the show. Each episode of The High Court features Benson presiding over real cases that have been submitted by the show's viewers. The cases can be anything from a dispute between roommates over who should do the dishes to a disagreement between friends over who owes whom money. The catch is that Benson and his two bailiffs, Geoff Tate and Tiffany Haddish, are all high on marijuana throughout each episode.

The show opens with Benson introducing the case and explaining the charges against each party. He then proceeds to ask each party a series of questions about the case while smoking a joint. Benson's questioning is often humorous and off-the-cuff, as he uses his stoned state to come up with outlandish scenarios and hypotheticals. Tate and Haddish also chime in with their own observations and jokes, often causing Benson to break into fits of laughter.

Once Benson feels that he has enough information to make a ruling, he takes a brief break to smoke another joint and deliberate. When he returns, he delivers his verdict, which is often surprising and hilarious. Benson's rulings tend to be based more on his personal opinions and sense of humor than on any legal precedent or logic, which adds to the show's overall comedic effect.

The High Court is a unique twist on the traditional courtroom show format, as it combines elements of reality TV, comedy, and stoner culture. The show's emphasis on marijuana use and its irreverent tone make it a hit with younger viewers and those who enjoy offbeat humor.

Despite its unconventional premise, The High Court manages to be both entertaining and informative. Each episode offers insights into how different legal disputes can be resolved, while also providing a platform for Benson and his bailiffs to riff on current events, pop culture, and whatever else comes to mind.

Overall, The High Court is a fun and irreverent show that is perfect for those who enjoy offbeat humor and are open to a more unconventional approach to legal disputes. The show's hilarious mix of comedy and cannabis make it a must-watch for anyone looking for a good laugh.

The High Court is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on February 27, 2017.
