CALIFORNIA: Whoever said, “money doesn’t grow on trees” never met Darius, Pat and their friends. Fans of comedy have a hilarious new film to celebrate – Hollyweed Films presents “Grow House” starring DeRay Davis, Lil’ Duval, Martin Starr, Snoop Dogg, Faizon Love, Malcolm McDowell, and Lin Shaye, as well as features a cameo by Charlamagne Tha God.
Written and directed by Mark “DJ Pooh” Jordan, “Grow House” will be released in theaters April 20, 2017.
There’s a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of California and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald’s. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Pat (DeRay Davis – “EMPIRE”, “21 Jump Street”, “GI Joe”) and Darius (Lil Duval – “Scary Movie 5″,”Meet the Blacks”), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. Only one problem, knowing how to smoke marijuana doesn’t mean you know how to grow it.
After taking a trip to “Dr. Doobie” (Malcolm McDowell – “Entourage”, “The Mentalist”, “Home Alone”) to become legally certified growers, they gain access to a Bel Air mansion to use as a “grow house.” Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.
