Dale Denton ( Seth Rogen ) is a 25-year-old process server who witnesses the dangerous drug lord Ted Jones ( Gary Cole ) and a corrupt police officer, Carol Brazier ( Rosie Perez ), committing murder. Dale panics and leaves his roach at the scene containing a rare strain of marijuana called Pineapple Express. Ted subsequently identifies Dale's roach as the strain that he had sold to only one dealer. Ted sends his two henchmen, Budlofsky and Matheson ( Kevin Corrigan and Craig Robinson ) to the dealer, Red ( Danny McBride ), who discloses that he has only sold the pot to Dale's dealer, Saul Silver ( James Franco ). Dale flees to Saul's apartment in a panic and explains what happened. After a brief conversation, Dale realizes Ted could trace the roach back to Saul. They flee to Saul's apartment, while Ted's henchmen persuade Red to arrange a meeting between Saul and Red, but this fails because Dale and Saul spend the night in the woods. After sleeping for 18 hours, Dale and Saul arrive at Red's house and hope that talking with Red in person will help them determine whether Ted has linked them, and therefore whether he is in pursuit. Instead, Dale decides that Red will reveal their whereabouts to Ted, and the three fight. Convinced that Ted's henchmen are pursuing them, they decide that they must leave the city. Dale goes to his girlfriend Angie ( Amber Heard ) at her house to warn her and her parents ( Nora Dunn and Ed Begley, Jr. ), but only Angie's father did not believe him. Ted's henchmen pursue Dale and Saul to Angie's house, and her family goes into hiding.

To leave town, Dale and Saul sell some of Saul's Pineapple Express to raise bus fare. However, a police officer later catches Dale for smoking a joint and arrests him for selling the weed to middle school kids. Dale convinces the arresting officer that Brazier is corrupt. Saul eventually rescue Dale by hijacking the squad car, while Officer Brazier hears a police radio call of Dale's arrest. Officer Brazier pursues Dale and Saul in a high speed chase, but Dale and Saul eventually evade her. Dale and Saul argued each other about the mess they have found themselves in, resulting in Dale telling Saul that they are not friends and never were. The two part ways, angry and upset. Saul visits his grandmother in an assisted living home and finds Ted's henchmen, who kidnaps Saul and takes him to Ted's lair. Dale enlists Red to help him to rescue rescue Saul from Ted, but Red backs out at the last minute and Dale is captured. While Dale and Saul are held hostage, they make up. Meanwhile, a rival Asian drug gang attacks the barn to avenge a member's death at the hands of Ted and Officer Brazier. Dale and Saul free themselves and join the conflict. Dale and Ted endure a brawl that resulted in Ted's death when one of the Asians ( Ken Jeong ) sets off a bomb that eventually destroys the barn. Matheson kills Budlofsky for refusing to kill Saul when he had the chance. When Matheson is about to kill Saul, Red bursts through the wall with his car, running over Matheson and kills him. While Saul thanks Red, Officer Brazier reaches for a gun and shot Red, seemingly killing him. The bomb goes off, first exploding Red's car and the burning car falls on top of Officer Brazier, killing her. Dale carries Saul out of the burning barn. Just as Saul awakens, Red crawls from the wreckage. The film ends when Dale, Saul, and Red go to a diner to eat their breakfast and celebrate their friendship and Saul's grandmother picks them up and takes them to a hospital.
