A suburban New York City mother of two has been arrested and charged with cultivating an estimated 3,000 marijuana plants valued about $3 million — a near-real-life tale of Showtime’s dark comedy-drama, according to The Washington Times.

Andrea Sanderlin, 45, pleaded not guilty to all charges. Investigators say she dubbed her alleged marijuana business “Fantastic Enterprises” and ran it out of a warehouse in the city, The Times reports.
