The Zen of Chong: Celebrating 4/20 With The Patron Saint of Weed, Tommy Chong!
Johnny Dare Morning Show
It would be easy to dismiss comedy legend Tommy Chong as being just another stoner comedian...but that would be an insult to a legacy that reaches beyond mere comedy.Yes, Cheech and Chong released numerous successful comedy albums, but they became the faces of the counter culture, released a string of movies that are favorites of fans the world over, became tireless advocates for the legalization of weed, and have lived long enough to see world where they now have their own strain of weed, and have their own dispensaries!!And, above all of that, Tommy Chong is one of the kindest, most centered and wisest people we know, as today's conversation proves....See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Episode 53: A Life of Getting Lit with Tommy Chong
It’s kinda weird hearing people say “weed is mainstream” now, when merely possessing the plant stuff can still earn you serious consequences in many parts of the world. But the growing popularity of cannabis is unmistakable. Marijuana is now a global, multi-billion dollar industry—well, to be fair, it always was, only now it’s all legitimate and overtaxed and commercialized instead of enriching drug cartels. Regardless, cannabis is more popular than ever, with a rapidly growing fandom among older generations. Even Martha Stewart is into CBD now. But while it’s great to see so many people starting to dig the awesome benefits cannabis sativa offers, it’s important to contextualize the culture and history that got us here. On Narcotica, we’ve done more than 50 episodes about all kinds of drugs: opioids, meth, cocaine, psilocybin magic mushrooms, ketamine, even sorta obscure stuff like antibiotics and salvia. But we’ve never done an episode entirely devoted to cannabis! How weird is that? One of the world’s most popular drugs, one I use every day and we just… haven’t gotten to it yet. So we thought we’d start things off with a bang and bring in one of weed’s biggest fans, none other than comedian, musician and world famous stoner Tommy Chong, of Cheech and Chong fame. We discuss everything from prison life to getting high in old age to how ‘Up In Smoke’ became a blockbuster hit to the emerging cannabis industry.You can follow Tommy on Twitter @tommychong If you liked this episode, here are others you might enjoy:Episode 2: Anthony Bourdain, Suicide and the Myth of Cross AddictionEpisode 49: Salvia: Psychedelic Oddity (Plus, Canada’s Emerging Psilocybin Scene)Episode 25: Banning Kratom Will Escalate the Opioid Overdose Crisis with Walter ProzialeckFollow Narcotica on Facebook, Twitter and support us on Patreon.

Tommy Chong the legend talks with Yaya Diamond about the future of Cheech and Chong If you know about Tommy Chong then you know about Cheech and Chong. When I was growing up their show was the number one show my mother would not let me watch, but I snuck it in from time to time. They were the first comedic pair on television I had ever seen and I thought they were hilarious. Tommy Chong talks to me about his beginnings as a guitar player and singer signed to Motown, yes signed to the imfamous hit making Motown, and how The Jacksons opened for them before they shot to fame. Tommy Chong also talks about the future of Cheech and Chong with me. Tune in and go down memory lane with me. It is such a pleasure to interview him on the show and I hope it won't be the last.
