What's the story?

Co-produced by rapper Snoop Dogg, MARY + JANE is a scripted MTV comedy series about two 20-somethings who sell and deliver medical marijuana. Best friends Paige (Jessica Rothe) and Jordan (Scout Durwood) are working hard to build their all-female, mostly legal prescription-delivery service and rank among the best dealers in the Los Angeles area. But the best friends find that competing with other green dealers in the area isn't easy, and some of their deliveries lead to strange adventures. Nonetheless, the two are committed to making their business work. 

Is it any good?

Edgy and humorous, Mary + Jane celebrates marijuana culture by presenting the trade as lucrative and socially acceptable. Most narratives are marijuana-driven, and the cast makes sure to mention weed during the conversations that aren't.  

The endless pot-laced references get a little tired, but some of show's best moments are those that poke fun at the ever-changing (and often outlandish) trends that are part of the Los Angeles scene. It's not for everyone, but older viewers who are comfortable with the topic will appreciate what it has to offer. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the changing rules and social norms surrounding the use and sale of marijuana. Even if it's legal where you live, should kids be smoking it? Parents: How can you help kids stay smoke-free?

  • Families can talk about women on TV. How do you feel about the two leads being female? Which other shows have two female leads?
