Craig (Ice Cube) has just been fired but has no motivation to find a new job, and his friend Smokey (Chris Tucker) lives to smoke joints. Smokey has his own problems involving $200 worth of marijuana that he was given to sell but smoked himself. Now he has no money to pay the dope dealer, and payment is due that night.
