The 4/20 surprise teaser trailer for new Netflix comedy Disjointed showed Kathy Bates smoking a joint, and Tuesday, the streaming service released the first images from the series, which once again see Bates lighting up.

The show follows Ruth (Bates), who, after decades of advocating legalized weed, operates a Los Angeles cannabis dispensary. Her business, Ruth’s Alternative Caring, employs three so-called “budtenders,” a security guard, and her 20-something son, who will all be involved in antics, surely.

The 20-episode series from Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) and former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum premieres on Netflix Aug. 25. See the new images below.
