When lazy pothead Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) stops by the apartment of his dealer Saul Silver (James Franco), Saul offers him a rare strain of marijuana, Pineapple Express. Dale and Saul smoke for a few minutes, and then Dale, who is a process server, heads out to serve his subpoena on drug lord Ted Jones (Gary Cole). While waiting to approach Jones, Dale witnesses crooked cop Carol (Rosie Perez) and Jones kill a man. Dale panics and flees the scene, leaving behind his still-smoldering joint. Jones finds the joint, gets help from middle man Red (Danny McBride), and tracks it back to Saul and Dean. Now, hit men appear on the scene, and Dale and Saul try to escape while bullets and body parts fly through the air.
