Posted On : September 9, 2016

We, Old Schoolers, remember watching “Cheech & Chong” get high as the sky in their movies back in the day.  What many may not have known is that Tommy Chong went on to become a successful entrepreneur with a non-traditional business. One that led to him serving time in federal prison in 2003. But this had to be one of the most senseless sting operations ever! >>>

Tommy Chong owned a successful online glass bong business. In 2003 a nationwide sting operation, code-named 'Operation Pipe Dream,' was launched to catch those illegally shipping glass weed smoking accessories (glass bongs) across state lines. The government spent $12MILLION and utilized 2000 law enforcement officers to ultimately arrest 55 suspects. But get this... only ONE suspect served time for the crime- Tommy Chong and according to Huffington Post, a federal prosecutor even admitted that Chong was their intended target all along:

cheech and chong

The Federal prosecution admitted after the fact to being stricter on Tommy in vengeance, referring to his and Cheech’s movies as trivializing “law enforcement efforts to combat drug trafficking and use.”

SEE WHAT HAPPENED WITH CHONG'S WIFE & SON THOUGH...
