This seemed like a first attempt to make a movie similar to Kevin Smith's "Clerks" (which was a really good movie!) This is an example of having a good movie idea then executing it poorly. I can kind of see where the director was wanting to go with this but it was very boring to watch. I thought that the actor's performances were good but the story just wasn't funny.
The synopsis on IMDb states that this movie is "a mix of ultra-realistic vérité and stoner comedy." None of it was realistic and stating that its vérité is misleading. This movie was "real" in the sense that it covered some real-life situations but it made me feel like I was in a waiting room watching a looped public-service announcement. I didn't even get a chuckle out of anything anyone said or did. Calling it a comedy was a bad choice of words.
Stoner movies are usually off-the-wall and goofy because face it, most people like watching these movies while they're high. I can't even recommend it for that quality. There was nothing enjoyable in it at all and when I thought it might start getting funny the movie ended.
I hate writing negative reviews but when I saw the rating of 7.8 I had to say something.

A mix of ultra-realistic vérité and stoner comedy, 'Bad Batch' follows an unlikely group of college students who gorge themselves on possibly the strongest pot brownies known to man one night.
