Are you serious?

This show tries to make smoking weed funny. It's serious and definitely not nowhere near funny. Being high is not comical. The way weed kills your brain cells is not funny.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
