One half of Cheech and Chong is handling quarantine pretty well thanks to drugs, his wife and the lingering thought of his recent stint in jail for selling bongs.
The name Tommy Chong is synonymous with marijuana and it was his movies with comedic partner Cheech Marin that made him a cultural icon.
Chong says that getting high was part of their job prior to performing, “Oh no, for the most part we were always high. It was my job as a writer and performer to deliver the goods. So if that meant being stoned, I gladly did it. I found that the more stoned I was, the more crazy the movie was, and the more successful we were.”
Chong was recently asked if there would be a reunion on screen with Cheech, “I’ll turn it into a reality and then I’ll tell you.”
