A young journalist, fresh from the drug culture of the 60s, arrives in Las Vegas (1971) to cover the annual bikers race out in the desert with his good friend, Dr. Gonzo (a lawyer).
Both arrive in a fancy white sports car (dubbed the Great White Shark) zonked out on drugs and remain that way, receiving a new assignment to cover the annual Law Enforcement Meeting On Drugs and generally scaring the tourists, and annoying the natives.
Along the way crazy stuff happens, usually with our protagonists sniffing, smoking, or chewing something. They pick up a hitchhiker, ruin a hotel room, and harrass a car full of poor, old Southern folk (all under the safety of a fake name, of course).
