Get the Weed/ Misión No Oficial
In this hilarious mockumentary, President Jose Mujica (played by Pepe himself) orders a secret mission to find 50 tonnes of cannabis to supply Uruguay after its historic legalisation.
A pharmacist, famous for his “special” brownies, is enlisted to travel to the USA as the head of the fake Uruguayan Chamber of Legal Marijuana. He assembles a motley crew, including his mother, and heads to a marijuana festival in Colorado, holds clandestine meetings with government officials, all the while assuring everyone he is not a narco!
