Not your regular Cheech and Chong type stoner cult classic this story does tell a true tale about a kid with a dream to be more than regular Joe Blogs. After looking into his favorite pasttime of choice Nate decides to rope in his best friend Topher into a cross-border smuggling operation. Soon they have a larger crew of trusted friends moving millions of dollars of dank from Canadian farmers to the recreational markets of the USA for top dollar.
Nate’s original plan was to make money to help his hardworking single mother and support his younger brother. The dream soon turns into a nightmare as Nate and crew get caught up with the wrong people at the wrong time and ego’s get the better of some.
Unfortunately if you willing to do the crime, you must be willing to the time. After the murder of a competing cannabis smuggler the FBI tracks Nate’s crew down to the mountain forests between the US and Canada and between them many years are served.

“It’s like watching Wayne’s World,” says Cikutovich, Nate’s lawyer. “They’re videotaping themselves smoking doobies. Then they get there and there’s no Escalade, and they’re going, ‘Dude! Let’s find this guy and beat him up!’” Nate eventually bought the Escalade in Seattle, paying cash and telling the salesman he won the money gambling. Kid Cannabis Script
