I have to disagree about half-baked. This is Holllywood's hackneyed version of "Just say no." Why do these films insist on calling cannabis a "gateway drug?" THink about the ending of half-baked. Chapelle's character gives up his medicine for his girl, because she thinks her grandmother died from using MJ.His girlfriend gives this film a strange sense of inarticulate morality against cannabis. Half Baked ends up like reefer madness. didn't care for it.
