Up in Smoke was released 40 years ago this year, man. The plot, as best — cough — we can remember, follows two stoners who meet in a car with license plates that read "MUF DVR," and spend the rest of the movie chasing weed while being trailed by narcs. The Grammy Museum's latest exhibit, Cheech & Chong: Still Rollin' — Celebrating 40 Years of Up in Smoke, salutes not only the first stoner film ever made and its accompanying 1979 soundtrack, which featured the classic single "Earache My Eye," but the history of one of comedy's greatest duos, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. Items on display include an original marked-up script, master tape for the album, comedy sketches and limited-edition anniversary smoking devices, in addition to art guitars from Marin's curated collection, Blazing Chicano Guitars.
