Illegal smiles: Pot comedy returns

July 29, 2008
Variety reports today that "Up in Smoke" comedy legends Cheech and Chong will be hitting the road for the first time in 25 years. Their national tour, titled "Hey, What's that Smell?" will be announced tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the latest comedy from Judd ("Knocked Up") Apatow arrives in theaters soon. "Pineapple Express," about a stoner (Seth Rogen, big surprise) and his dealer on the run, opens next week.

A trend? A reflection of how pot has become an acceptable part of society? Or is it just fun to watch wasted people? And can "Bill and Ted!: The Musical" be far behind?

Your thoughts?
