    • Chappelle's been more amendable, but he agreed the Executive Meddling hurt the final product, saying the more juvenile tone turned it into "a weed movie for kids."
  • What Could Have Been: Harrison Ford was originally planned to be in one of the "Types of smokers" cameos but declined the offer.
    • Snoop Dogg was originally slated to play "Sir Smoka Lot", but the studio saved money by having Dave Chapelle play the part. Snoop wound up in the film anyway, though.
