Check it out, Michael Phelps: British movie company Revolver Entertainment is offering a gram of cannabis for buyers of its DVDs. From Ananova:
A British film company is offering an unusual competition with its latest DVD – the chance to win a bag of marijuana. Revolver Entertainment is putting a Willy Wonka-style golden ticket in one of the first 1,000 copies of The Wackness, out this week on DVD.
The finder of the golden ticket wins a weekend for two in Amsterdam where they will collect a gram of high-grade skunk, courtesy of Revolver. The Wackness follows the unlikely relationship between a psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley) and a teenager (Josh Peck) which is created through their mutual love of smoking marijuana.
On his role, Sir Ben proclaims: “When the audience sees Dr Squires reach for a bong for the first time they are delighted.”
The Government announced tougher new laws on cannabis possession, uprating it from a Class C to Class B drug, a year ago in Britain because of increased fears about the health risks. It is decriminalised in Amsterdam where police take no action against the sale of small amounts in the city’s famous coffee shops.
