“FOR WHOM THE BONG CHONGS”: I can’t say I was ever that big a fan of Tommy Chong and his on-stage partner in tokes, Cheech Marin, even at their high point (hehe) in the 1970s. Sophmoric druggie humor just doesn’t do much for me, especially when I can pop in a DVD of the Marx Brothers, Monty Python, or an early Woody Allen movie.

But why is the DEA raiding head shops and busting people like Chong for “illegal drug paraphernalia“?
