This is what happens when people get high on their own supply.

When Nova Scotia RCMP stopped a car on Sunday for driving with no headlights, they realized the vehicle had a much larger problem: Stuffed inside were giant marijuana plants that were literally pressing into the windows.

But here’s the kicker: When authorities popped the trunk, inside was the driver’s buddy.

“The driver of the Toyota Corolla was overcrowded by 20 marijuana plants which were loaded into the front and rear seats of his vehicle,” RCMP Sgt. Alain LeBlanc said in a statement. “A passenger was located in the trunk of the car, seemingly to make room for the marijuana in the front seat area.”

How the two suspects expected to evade police with large illegal plants sitting in plain sight remains to be seen, but they’re now both due in court on October 30. Both men are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and cultivation.

You have to wonder, why didn’t the guy in the trunk just stay home?
