Shocking. Tommy Chong Is A Yes On Prop. 19 Pot Legalization
In a bit of news about as surprising as a bag of coke allegedly falling out of Paris Hilton's bag -- it wasn't hers, she swears -- Tommy Chong has come out in favor of Proposition 19, California's marijuana legalization initiative on the ballot this fall.
Chong and Richard "Cheech" Marin made films and comedy albums that made jokes about marijuana cigarettes and their humorous effects on the human brain.
Chong went to prison when the feds nabbed him for selling bongs.
In his blog post, on the site, CelebStoner, Chong makes a rather brief argument in favor of Prop. 19, one that supporters may want to flesh out a bit.
The privatized jails and the law enforcment budget pigs want to keep it illegal so they can maximize their bottom line.
