  1. Shocking, I tell you. Encouraging illegal activity..

    the official site ‘exclusive clip’ has the actors discussing ripping a cd to make a mix tape! Think of the children!

    That said, you know some video store clerk is going to ‘win’ it.

  2. I doubt the gummint will go after them. I also think if they don’t legalize pot very quickly, Mexico WILL collapse and there really will be hordes of refugees flooding the border. More than they can stop.

  3. GASP. MARIJUANA?! SHOCKED AND AWED.

    What has this world come to? Stoner Olympians…planes pretending to be boats…African-American President…they are all signs that the end is NEAR!

  4. This is actually surprising. Some countries, such as Australia claim global jurisdiction for their anti-drug laws. While I believe in the responsible exercise of personal freedom, I would not be surprised to see some nanny state prosecuting a contest winner.

  5. To enter the competition email […] with “Golden Ticket” in the subject box and we will open a DVD for you.

    Starting up bulk email program…

  6. It’s too bad that the movie was a pretty big snore-fest. The early 90’s nostalgia was the only thing it had going for it – strip that away and it’s just another lackluster coming of age film.

  7. This is actually surprising. Some countries, such as Australia claim global jurisdiction for their anti-drug laws. While I believe in the responsible exercise of personal freedom, I would not be surprised to see some nanny state prosecuting a contest winner.

    Source please? I don’t see how this is even possible when every state has different drug laws.

  8. The Onion article predicted that by 2005 people would be nostalgic for things that hadn’t yet happened. But doesn’t everyone think forward longingly to those halcyon early days of the singularity; before time shifting becomes so common

  9. Oh boy! A 1/1000 chance at a gram of pot. And even if you lose, you’ll still be the proud owner of what’s widely reported to be a mediocre movie. Hurrah!
