After Craig gets unceremoniously dumped from his job, he and his boy Smokey ease the pain with a little herbal therapy. The two spend the rest of that unremarkable Friday kicking it on the porch, dealing with a murderer’s row of the neighborhood’s weirdos, girls and wannabe hoods. All that changes when Smokey’s supplier rolls up demanding $200 for the weed they smoked. The two spend the rest of the day scrapping together cash by any means necessary, even if it means taking down the neighborhood tough, Deebo.
