Non High Times?


Cheech and Chong may have joked about marijuana in their movies, but the comedians say they didn't touch the stuff when the cameras were rolling.

"We tried one time and we wasted so much film," said Tommy Chong, recalling a scene in "Up in Smoke." "We were in the car waiting for the cue, you know. And the camera's rolling and we're sitting there, you know, and neither one of us heard the cue."

Chong said he isn't ashamed of introducing millions of Vietnam-era kids to marijuana. "When you think of how many kids died drinking alcohol, I feel I've saved millions of lives," he said.

--Is anyone really buying this?

I buy it. Those movies are hilarious, and gave a much needed break from that post vietnam mentality.

Keep in mind that 30 years ago they hadn't seen anything like it, and this was ultra-risque.

It reminds me of my olf professor. He said that he went on sabbatical in 1968 and when he came back in 1969 the students no longer stood when he came into the room. They stopped caring, or at least being robots.

I think they helped contribute to a much needed change to our society.

"Up in Smoke" was awesome. Oh, and that picture is of Cheech, but you quoted Chong. I'm not sure if you knew that.

Cheech and Chong were hilarious back in the day. I still think their routines and movies are hilarious. Whether or not they were actually baked at the time of filming is neither here nor there. I suppose it's sort of like the legend of the Rat Pack. Dean might've acted drunk, but some have said he was really drinking iced tea on stage. Perhaps Cheech & Chong were able to pull the same thing.
