Anakin Skywalker, Marlboro Man

I saw the trailer for Clone Wars in front of Hellboy. The thing that struck me was the reason for the PG Rating.
Sci-Fi action violence throughout: Check. This should go without saying. I mean, after all, this is Star Wars, right?
Brief Language: Check. Even Han Solo threw out a few curse words when evading the Empire.
Momentary Smoking: Check. Woe, wait a second. Momentary Smoking? Does Anakin light up after some Sci-Fi violoence, spewing forth some brief language? But, when did momentary smoking become an influencer to the PG rating? I wonder what full on smoking would have garnered?
Could you imagine Casablance getting a PG-13?

But WHAT was he smoking? A little "Gondorian Ganja?" Do they go for snacks and giggle alot afterward? Explains Anakin's acting in SW III...
