Together they run a business supplying high quality marijuana grown from seed which Chon obtained in Afghanistan. The business becomes so lucrative that the Mexican 'Baja Cartel' run by La Reina Elena (Salma Hayek) gets envious of their product and makes them an offer they unwisely refuse. Peaceful… Read more
