Weeds is a comedy/drama/satire based around an american widow (Nancy Botwin) with 2 children who begins selling cannabis for financial gain after the death of her husband. Her family become involved in more and more illegal activities as the show progresses.
The story in this serial is not about fighting against drugs and not about how harmful drug addiction is. It illustrates a totally different point of view. Nancy Botwin lives exactly in that American suburb were everyoneâ€™s got â€œa skeleton in his closetâ€. She is a widow with two quite original children. The older one, Silas, is a smart and interesting boy with constant problems in love, the younger one, Shane, is a whole different story, as he goes after his mother all the time asking her to give him antidepressants in great numbers. Back to mother â€“ Nancy hasnâ€™t found any other way to feed her family than selling marihuana which she gets from the local dealers â€“ an African American family where Heylia is in charge of everything and gets help from Conrad who seems to have some feelings to Nancy. When the actual marihuana trader appears, Nancyâ€™s neighbors â€“ advocates, financiers and other people â€“ start turning their backs on her. Overall, one can imagine this picture, greatly stuffed with black humor, comic insertions and tragicomic twists.Read more »
