Help "Weeds" Find its Weed

Yes we've been watching "Weeds". Finally Showtime has decided to get with the program and actually take advantage of the success of original, edgy shows on HBO.

It makes us wonder why Showtime isn't taking the next step and actually having an edgy, daily broadcast like, oh... The Howard Stern show -- which was once highly-rated on E!, censored, but now only available on cable stations that have deals with OnDemand. A network like Showtime could broadcast the show live on Showtime in the mornings and rebroadcast it again during prime time on Showtime2 or Showtime3, giving people an alternative when the networks' prime-time offerrings are lacking.

Anyway, today's 4:20 Video is some viral underground hep marketing ploy to get us to post this perfectly-edited YouTube spot on our blog. And even though the weed is obviously fake we're still very curious of what the buds were made of, since that guy who looks like Silent Bob sure seemed eager to take it back home to his basement.
