April is a busy month for Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong.
The comedy duo — best known as Cheech & Chong — is promoting Cheech & Chong’s Cannabis Company, a consortium of weed-related businesses that includes cannabis distribution, dispensaries and a take-out service with a contest that allows three people in the Los Angeles area to have the legendary stoners appear at their homes on April 20, aka 4/20.
Entering the contest is easy: Anyone who makes a purchase between April 1 and April 15 from Cheech & Chong’s Takeout is automatically entered to win.
For those who don’t smoke weed, the prize is like God knocking on your door on a Sunday morning and asking you to go to church with you.
Cheech and Chong have individual weed businesses (Tommy Chong’s Cannabis and Cheech’s Stash), but Cheech & Chong’s Cannabis Company marks the first time the twosome has gone into the marijuana business together. We decided to speak to them about their latest venture and asked that the interview be conducted from inside of the Love Machine, to which they obliged.
