Storyline

When ninety-six year old medical marijuana patient Grace Murphy passes away, stoner Bud Parker and his coworkers Tyrell and Royce, the ex-narcotics officer, must clean out her wrecked house. But when Royce's partner, Rodney the racist police dog, finds Grace's secret marijuana grow room the guys decide to turn the house into a marijuana speakeasy. However, many obstacles stand in the way of their "tokeasy" including the sexual harassing ghost of Grace, Dr. Bobby the fake marijuana doctor, and a town full of closet potheads stuck in a social limbo of legal and non-legal marijuana use.

Stoner film with intelligent undertones.
24 June 2012 | by ActorMartinezDotComSee all my reviews

Tokeasy follows the hapless adventures of a crime scene cleanup crew (Joshua Ray, Chaz Grundy, and Scott Jones) as they try to survive in a world of prohibition. Marijuana prohibition that is. By highlighting the parallels with alcohol prohibition, Tokeasy creates an intelligent examination of current drug policy and completely slathers it with moronic comedy. It's like taking the finest steak and deep frying it into a sinful pleasure.

And before you write Tokeasy off as just another stoner comedy, consider that the entire story is based on Dafne, the very first opera.

But enough with the brains, let's talk about the laughs. The lead actors, Ray, Grundy and Jones move with a well oiled chemistry and inadvertently end up with an old speakeasy that been upgraded for smoking rather than drinking. Of course, a building that old would certainly have a ghost and a la Dafne, this is a different sort of haunting altogether. Let's just say that the Drug Enforment Agency becomes the least of our hero's worries.

Considering the long lines at the theater to see Tokeasy I give it ten stars, and take away two stars to be fair since I play a supporting role myself. Watch for Tokeasy, because it's popular enough that you'll have a chance to see it soon.
