LOS ANGELES - This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Cheech & Chong's debut film UP IN SMOKE,a cultural breakthrough that created the "stoner film" genre. In celebration of the anniversary, Rhino will release a very special Cheech & Chong single on Record Store Day: a 7-inch vinyl in the shape of a marijuana leaf, complete with a marijuana-scented "scratch and sniff" sticker. The single features the original version of the film's title song "Up In Smoke" on the one-side and a previously unreleased version of the song with an additional Spanish verse by Cheech on the other side.

The 7-inch, limited to 4,500 individually numbered copies, will be available exclusively at independent record stores on Record Store Day on April 21. Please visit www.recordstoreday.com for a list of participating stores.
