It could have been a scene out of the Trailer Park Boys.

Cops in Halifax stopped a suspicious car without its headlights on and found a load of pot plants in the front and rear seats, and the driver's buddy in the trunk.

The Toyota was pulled over about 10 p.m. Sunday and police found the driver surrounded by 20 marijuana plants and his passenger in the trunk, "seemingly to make room for the marijuana in the front seat area" the RCMP said in a statement.

A 23-year-old man from Brookside, N.S., and a 24-year-old man from Hatchet Lake, N.S., each face charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and cultivation under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

The men will appear in Halifax court Oct. 30.
