Episode Recap

While promoting the community garden in the still-undeveloped pit, Leslie discovers a crop of marijuana and immediately assumes that it will hamper her political ambitions. Rather than report the offending horticultural project to the police, she recruits Tom to help her catch the villains by staking out the pit in an attempting to apprehend them personally.

Meanwhile, Ann goes out on her first date with Mark after clearing it with Leslie. Despite her attraction for Mark, she still feels somewhat uncomfortable dating someone that had a previous relationship (albeit a one-night-stand) with Leslie. Unknown to Ann, Leslie took a bit of time off from her stakeout to "test" her camera....on Mark while he was on his way to pick up Ann.
