I like that the show has portrayed the rapid change in life that drugs brought into Nancy's life. She was grieving, and she was naive to think she could just sell a little weed in her suburb, and everything would be "normal." She had a major void in her life and went along with everything that spun her life out of control without much hesitation. More weed, associates she knew for years were eclipsed by hardened criminals she barely knew. She married a Drug Enforcement agent, not out of love but out of protecting her business.
That rapid change, while grieving...adding murder, criminals and casual sexual encounters in the mix? How can that all be realistically sustained in a quaint little suburb, as a "normal" life for the kids?
While Weeds isn't a Sopranos' level of the anti-hero/protagonist, it definitely has that influence. To me, Nancy is a Tony-Soprano-like character in a sense.
