Chon, a former Navy SEAL, smuggled the seeds for the plants out of Afghanistan. They got help in cultivating them from Ben, a graduate of University of California, Berkeley in business and botany. These seeds yielded a particularly potent strain of marijuana that soon developed a wide customer base and made Chon and Ben very wealthy, and Ben began devoting time and money to doing charity work in Africa and Asia.
