In the film’s conclusion: Harold and Kumar find inner strength to accomplish their dreams through excessive drug use.

Dove Review

Harold and Kumar inhale marijuana using a variety of methods, steal drugs, and hide from the police. The movie presents people consistently consuming large quantities of illegal drugs without suffering negative consequences, and it suggests that drugs make you a better person. Sex is also a big part of the movie. Harold and Kumar includes many vulgar discussions of sex and a lot of crude humor. Several times white police harass men because they are minorities.
