This is a part of a marketing hype that was convinced that Gen X was going to be a hippy rebirth. There were other movies and tv shows at this time like Rude Awakening with Eric Roberts.

Kids from communes did start coming out to the real world at this time. They always had weed, so they were welcomed for that, but some were messed up and resembled stereotypical hillbillies.
