This week's issue of Creative Loafing features my story on Cheech & Chong's Light Up America reunion tour.

I spoke with the comedians/marijuana icons separately last month, and you can hear my interviews in their entirety below.

Tommy Chong, who called me about 20 minutes late ("stoner time" of course), talks in greater detail about his prison sentence, while Cheech Marin discusses a wide variety of subjects, including Chicano art, how politics drove his partner to prison, and why it made sense (and dollars) for Cheech & Chong to bury the hatchet.
