Weeds, the Showtime show featuring housewife turned pot dealer, Nancy Botwin, started this season of strong with an average of over 6 million viewers. So of course, Showtime is guaranteeing stoner and non-stoner fans a like more new seasons in the future.
Weeds has been growing a cult following since it's first amazing season in 2005.

Weeds proves that audiences loves these shows as much as we do,“ said Showtime President of Entertainment David Nevins in a statement. “There are definitely more comedic adventures in store for [this] fascinating, complex [woman].

It seems the controversial subject matter has been nothing but a popularity booster for the show. Though to be honest there are at least a few times where I've hesitated to say "I love Weeds" with too much enthusiasm. Just in case.
