CANNABIS CULTURE – Legendary Stoners Cheech and Chong appeared on the CBSNews.com program Washington Unplugged to discuss marijuana legalization and their new “Get it Legal” tour.
“Get it legal, that’s what we are going to do,” Tommy Chong said. “The truth is, marijuana really is a medicine, and it has been a medicine for 5,000 years. […] Recreational is medical.”
The two have teamed up with the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), who says the goal of the tour is “bringing attention to the harm caused by marijuana prohibition and the urgent need for different, more sensible marijuana laws”.
Chong again wore a Free Marc T-shirt (given to him by The CCHQ Store during a recent visit to Vansterdam) in support of Prince of Pot Marc Emery. He also mentioned Marc and his extradition to the US for selling marijuana seeds at the MPP’s 15th Anniversary Gala.
