Yes I know it's Tommy Chong, I meant, what happened to him, but you just explained that.. hmmm that sucks!!
Actually, he's out of prison now, and has teamed up with Cheech again, doing a tour. They actually had planned on doing this tour a few years ago, but that's when Tommy got busted for owning a glass waterpipe company (which isn't illegal where he had it, but the DEA trapped him into selling them a huge order in some podunk town where it WAS illegal, after claiming they would pick up the order in California at the glass company, then of course not showing UP at the glass company, and when Tommy was suck with all that merchandise and they promised to pay if he'd ship...that's when the busted him). They were going to call the tour the "Grumpy Old Stoners" tour but after Tommy did his time and most of the liberal-thinking world was properly outraged about they way he was hung out to dry, they just called the tour "Light Up America and Canada" http://www.cheechandchongtour.com/
Brian, my husband, has pretty much all their movies memorized. Anytime one happens to be on television, he'll be watching and and talking right along with all the characters. And yet he still can't remember which drawer I put his socks in!
