Seth Rogan was forced to cut a hardcore drug scene from the movie because it was too explicit for British viewers. The British Board of Film Classification even censored it!
He says, "We had to remove stuff from the movie to get the rating that we needed. We're actually more responsible in the U.K. than we are in the States. There's a scene in the movie when we sell to high school kids that's still in there I assume. But in the American version of the scene we also smoke weed with them and hang out.
It's a really explicit scene of us getting high with these 11-year-olds. I think for the U.K. they've kind of softened it a bit. We had no moral obligation with this movie. I mean, it's an R-rated movie, you have to be 17 in order to see it so we figure at that age you're an adult. I've been seeing R-rated movies since I was 12 years old and I'm OK! Not really."
