According to Jim Breuer, the only time he was actually under the influence of marijuana during filming was scene in which Samson is arrested. According to Breuer, Dave Chappelle gave him a bag of marijuana at the end of a day's shooting. Right after smoking it, Breuer was called back to the set because Clarence Williams III wanted to quit the film and demanded that all of his scenes be filmed on that day. Breuer needed multiple takes to get his lines right.
