After her husband's unexpected death and subsequent financial woes, suburban mom Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) embraces a new profession: the neighborhood marijuana dealer. As it seems like everyone secretly wants what she's selling, even city councilman Doug Wilson (Kevin Nealon), Nancy is faced with keeping her family life in check and her enterprise a secret from her neighbor, pseudo-friend, and P.T.A. President, Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins).Written by

The character of Doug was only supposed to be in the pilot, but the producers liked Kevin Nealon's performance, and the comedic aspect of the character so much, that he was kept on the show. See more »
During seasons 2 through 5, several episodes feature a DEA agent named Roy Till with the rank of Captain. The Drug Enforcement Administration, a federal agency within the Department of Justice, has no such rank. See more »
What a clever, well written show. Immensely watchable and well acted. Mary Louise Parker is perfect in the role of a Yuppie, widowed woman making ends meet by selling Marijuana. The show highlights well the difficulties for single women not just at the upper end of the economic spectrum, but those not quite as well off. The language, although at times is strong, is realistic and appropriate.
All of the roles are interesting. Elizabeth Perkins plays the role of the acerbic friend who never quite realized her life ambitions. Her one daughter is overweight, the other just hates her, and her husband is sleeping with the Asian American tennis pro.
Every episode offers something new. I will definitely keep on looking for the next episode.
