‘A.K.A. Tommy Chong’ (2006)

I didn’t realise until I saw this interesting documentary, but, in a magnificent display of confusing art and reality, the U.S. government jailed Tommy Chong (famous as one half of stoner comedy duo Cheech and Chong) for 9 months, basically for selling bongs. This film tells the story leading up to and throughout Chong’s time in prison, and is worthy of your attention, stoner or not.
