Donald Trump was Hired by Hillary Clinton

Tommy Chong has a good theory regarding the presidential race.  He says Hillary hired Donald Trump to decimate the Republican party.  Chong may be right.  Trump donated a lot of money to Hillary's campaign and Trump has been a huge supporter of the Clintons.

He also thinks Chris Christie smokes weed...because he looks like he has the munchies.

Cheech and Chong and WAR Coming to Alberta Canada

Cheech and Chong have announced their first new tour date since Tommy Chong began cancer treatment.

On January 29, 2016 the Cheech and Chong Up in Smoke tour with WAR is coming to the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino in Calgary Alberta Canada.

Tickets are on sale now.

Tommy Chong to Launch New Show on Dish Network and the Web

According to Page Six, Tommy Chong will be launching a YouTube channel called Keep it Legal.  They'll discuss “anything that affects the pot smoker’s status in any way, negative or positive.”

He says he's been using marijuana as a pain killer during this cancer battle.  The pain is so bad he has to wake in the middle of the night to smoke up.

It's actually called Almost Legal.

Tommy Chong has teamed up with popular app WeedMaps for a sketch comedy series aimed at the "stoner" audience. Almost Legal, starring the comedian and featuring such guests as Hannibal Burress, Danny Trejo, Steve-O, Andy Milonakis and Garfunkel and Oates, will air via FilmOn Networks which has secured distribution over Dish Network in addition to its own streaming site, claiming 70 million monthly uniques internationally.

The show is directed by his son, Paris (nepotism alert). Paris has no noteworthy experience directing so I guess Tommy insisted on it.

Cheech Marin is Legally Brown

Hosted by Cheech Marin, Legally Brown Tu/2.0 is a humorous and ironic look at the obvious through the eyes of some of today's top touring Stand- Up Comedians, all of whom just happen to be Legally Brown.

Let the Donald beware. Special guests Rico and Mambo, Ventura/Oxnards most popular morning show personalities will kick off the show with a special appearance by Rick Najera a.k.a Bubba Gomez. Legally Brown Tu is the 2.0 version of the original

Legally Brown Comedy Show that premiered on Showtime and will be all on one stage for one evening of laughter.

Tommy Chong's Cancer has Returned and Spread. Hemp Doesn't Cure Cancer.

In June 2012, Tommy Chong came out saying he has minor prostate cancer and was treating it with hemp oil and 'western medicine.'  He noticed the symptoms while in prison.

In his September 2012 potcast, he said the hemp oil wasn't helping at all and he was going to try treating the cancer with ultrasound.

Then, after signing licensing agreements, Tommy told the media that hemp oil cured his cancer.  It was a big marketing scam.

Present day...In this week's US Magazine, Tommy Chong says his cancer has returned, but now it's in his rectum.

"I'm using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before," the famed comic said. "I'm in treatment now. I've been — just the case either way, either I get healed or I don't. But either way, I’m going to make sure I get a little edge off or put up."

Cheech and Chong have shows scheduled through October.  Not to be a Debbie Downer, but this may be your last time to see him.
