While some people celebrated National Weed Day on Monday by contemplating their navels, the people in the PR department at Showtime had no time to toke. For them, "4/20" was D-Day to promote the new season of Weeds. The network yesterday released this teaser poster featuring suburban pot dealer Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) along with the line, "The hemptress returns." Boasting a marijuana-green satin bodice and a sly smile, the character is pinned to a weed-emblazoned spider web. The poster promotes the fifth season of Weeds, which premieres June 8. Previous posters in the campaign have featured Parker posing as a pin-up girl, as Eve, in a field of flowers and in a den strewn with pot plants.
