"WEEDS is smart and satirical without ever stopping to cheap stoner slapstick."
Total Film - 10/01/2007 3 stars out of 5 -- "Mary-Louise Parker is snark and sass personified....A funky blend of laughs, cultural satire and the odd teary moment."

This intelligent comedy airing on the Showtime Channel stars Mary Louise Parker (ANGELS IN AMERICA) as Nancy Botwin, a recently widowed mother of two who finds herself in difficult financial straits. Her ingenious solution is to become the local pot dealer. Nancy's business really takes off, but she struggles to maintain her normal life and keep her secret from best friend and PTA president Celia (Elizabeth Perkins, BIG, MUST LOVE DOGS). Tonye Patano (LITTLE MANHATTAN) plays Nancy's streetwise dealer, with whom she has a tenuous friendship.
