This small little mission can be played by all three characters. Each has their own outcome.

[edit] Michael

This mission can be triggered by Michael.

[edit] Walkthrough

Follow the ? in Legion Square and Michael comes across this man wanting to legalize the use of Marijuana. After a brief conversation, the man offers Michael a joint. After being initially reluctant, Michael takes a puff of it and immediately feels the effects. A minigun appears in his hands and aliens are coming for him trying to vaporize or abduct him. Michael needs to kill all the aliens before getting vaporized. After killing the aliens, reality returns to Michael and he leaves the man and wanders off.

[edit] Trevor

This mission can be triggered by Trevor.

[edit] Walkthrough

Send Trevor to the "B" that is in Legion Square, Downtown Los Santos. Approac Barry at his table to trigger a cutscene: again, Barry is preaching his noble cause to get Marijuana legalized. Trevor is not a fan of the movement , but he agrees to take a puff of Barry's wares. This triggers a visualization of his worst nightmare; clowns.

Trevor wields an Assault Shotgun for the duration of the mission, use it to kill all the clowns that appear. Be particularly aware of the Clown Vans that appear and blown them up at the first opportunity before it starts to spawn more clowns. Look for dancing clowns as well (killing six of these will aid in achieving 100% for this mission). Keep on killing clowns until the effects of the drug wear off.

[edit] Conditions for Failure

Get shot to death by clowns.

[edit] Franklin

This mission can be triggered by Franklin.

[edit] Walkthrough

Send Franklin to the "B" on Sinner Street and approach Barry who is organizing a public smoke-in. This triggers a cutscene: Barry wants Franklin to help "collect the supplies" for the demonstration. He then entices Franklin to taste the product however this yields a different effect than experienced by Trevor or Michael.

Not long after the meeting with Barry, he will send a text to Franklin with the information on where to collect the vehicles with the hidden stashes. Two green circles appear on Franklin's map: One in La Puerta Industrial area just west of the Maze Bank Center, and the other in the Murrieta Heights industrial area. You can go to either in any order you wish.

[edit] Conditions for Failure

You cannot fail this mission

[edit] The Pick Up

This mission can be triggered by Franklin.

[edit] Walkthrough

Not long after Franklin as met Barry (see: "Grass Roots - Franklin"), Barry sends a text to Franklin giving him the locations of the hidden stashes. This puts two green circles on the map. Send Franklin to the Eastern-most circle and drive into the lumberyard off of El Rancho Boulevard in Murrieta Heights. Find the Duneloader pickup truck at the north end of the lumberyard. Franklin automatically calls Barry and reports the find. Barry wants the truck delivered to Vespucci and warns that the cops are sniffing around. When Franklin hangs up, an on screen counter appears that counts down from 04:00.

When the yellow route appears, immediately open your Menu map and place the purple waypoint marker on the destination blip to Barry's apartment just off Bay City Avenue in Vespucci. The reason for this is as you travel there you may trigger a Wanted Level. When that kicks in, any yellow destination route/marker disappears. Because this is a timed trip you want to roughly follow the purple route there while losing the cops. Use the waypoint to keep on track even as you make evasive maneuvers.

When you finally lose the cops, the yellow route reappears and you can follow it again. When you arrive, Franklin automatically reports the delivery to Barry. Leave the area to complete the mission.

Avoid a wanted level!
To earn 100% in this mission, complete it by not gaining a wanted level. To do this avoid all police patrols staking out the area. Turn right immediately after entering the vehicle, drive toward the LS River, make a jump into the river bed and follow the canal for a while before emerging. Or you can turn right twice from the starting point and drive through the construction barriers at the lot's edge, and rejoin the road at the road underneath the overpass.

[edit] Conditions for Failure

  • Franklin gets arrested
  • You die

[edit] 100%

  • Mission Time: Complete within 02:45
  • Unwanted Outcome: Complete without gaining a wanted level

[edit] The Drag

This mission can be triggered by Franklin.

[edit] Walkthrough

Not long after Franklin's meeting with Barry (see: "Grass Roots - Franklin") Barry sends a text with the information on where to find the hidden stashes of drugs. This puts two green circles on the map. Send Franklin to the Westernmost circle and enter Rogers Salvage and Scrap. As you pull into the Salvage yard a blue blip appears on your radar; follow it to a beat up Albany Emperor between several barricades. Get in the Emperor - it won't start up. After several tries, Franklin automatically calls barry, who claims he needs the car as well as the stash.

Get out of the car and go across the salvage yard to find a tow truck. Get in it and lower the hook, and back up to hook the front of the Albany onto the rear of the towtruck. Haul the stash car along the yellow route to Barry's apartment in Vespucci just of Bay City Avenue. When you reach the destination marker, unhook the car and drive away in the tow truck. Franklin automatically calls Barry to report the successful delivery and the mission ends.

  • Mission Time: Complete within 01:30
