Cheech and Chong: “Get It Legalized”

CANNABIS CULTURE – Legendary Stoners Cheech and Chong appeared on the 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.

    As a child of the 70’s I have to say it is fucking GREAT to see these 2 working together again. They may need to get their facts down a bit better to argue trhe legalization issue but their stardom draws attention to others who argue facts and points of law a bit better. FAR OUT MAN!


    Cheech and Chong, (TOO LATE TO )get it together!
