Up in Weed Smoke While two potheads are looking to promote weed, they are being followed by a team of less than efficient policemen. Cheech and Chong make their film debut in this riotous rock. Two brothers who can feel each others ‘pain and pleasure mess up the stoners world.
Cheech & Chong had been a Counterculture comedy team for about ten years before they started reworking some of their material for their first film. Much of the film was shot in Los Angeles Ca, including scenes set in Mexico. Scenes set on the Mexican border were actually filmed at the border in Arizona.
In an attempt to procure Marijuana, they visit Pedro’s cousin Strawberry, a Vietnam war veteran. They narrowly escape a Police raid on Strawberry’s house while Strawberry has a flashback and thinks the police are the Cong, but are soon deported to Mexicans by the INS , along with Pedro’s relatives, who actually called the INS on themselves, so they could get a free ride to a wedding in Tijuana. In order to get back to the United States they arrange to pick up a vehicle from Pedro’s shop, but arrive at the wrong address, a disguised Ganja warehouse.
They end up unknowingly involved in a plot to smuggle a van constructed completely out of “fiber weed” (hardened THC resin derived from marijuana – a play on the word pot from Mexico to LA, with an inept police unit, led by the overly zealous Sgt. Stickered hot on their heels. At the Mexican-American border, they almost get arrested but attention is diverted to a group of nuns (Man had thrown away his joint, in order to not be caught by the border patrol, which fell into the nun’s car by accident). The duo then narrowly cross the border into America and pass Stickered who is giving an interview to a newswoman. Stammered then finds out from his unit that they apprehended the wrong group and they begin to chase after Pedro and Man. They don’t get far, however, after one of Steno’s men accidentally shoots one of the tires to the car they were in.
I distinctly have two early weed smoking memories. The first is when my friends first smoked weed. We were thirteen and all at a party right after sleepover camp had ended. We had a plan to try smoking weed for the first time with a group of guys a year older. I was the ringleader of this plan until it came time to light up and I completely chickened out. I went so far as to start crying on the curb outside of the house because I was so high on weed.
We just went out somewhere, tied the boat to a tree, sat there and got high smoking off the glass weed pipes. But then we realized we were too high, because we got really high and we had to go back to my house, and my mom was there. We were in a real predicament, and we weren’t sure what we were going to do. So we came up with a plan to park the boat on the dock and run as fast as humanly possible and dive into the swimming pool full of weed smokers.
“The fact is, squire, the moment a man takes to a pipe, he becomes a philosopher. It’s the poor man’s friend; it calms the mind, soothes the temper, and makes a man patient under difficulties. It has made more good men, good husbands, kind masters, indulgent fathers, than any other blessed thing on this universal earth.”
-Sam Slick, the clock maker
“After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.” when it come to buying a new glass pipe go to the pipe depot the largest pipe store online.
