Some things really are too good not to share. Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum, author of Hemp For Victory: A Global Warming Solution, shared with me a great documentary about Tommy Chong. If you enjoy good comedy and/or triumph of the human spirit stories, experience a/k/a Tommy Chong: A Documentary by Josh Gilbert.
Michael Moore said about a/k/a Tommy Chong:
"The real stoners in this excellent documentary are the administration officials drunk with power and out of control, and a nation of otherwise good people who've been given the worst drug of all -- fear."
The movie is on Showtime which describes the work this way:
"Produced and directed by Josh Gilbert, this documentary is an eye-opening and surprisingly funny chronicle of Tommy Chong's recent battles with the U.S. government, which ended in a nine-month prison sentence for making and selling glass bongs, as well as a look back at his career in movies, television and albums as one-half of the comedy team Cheech & Chong."
"Jail is not fun," but hemp hero Tommy Chong has transformed himself into an even greater force for positive change. Josh Gilbert caught the transformation for the rest of us to grow from in this piece.
Based on results, Chong is effectively presenting the case. Hemp political prisoners now have a voice powered by deep humor. Alan Dershowitz praised Tommy Chong:
"Who could have known that Tommy Chong would turn out to be a great teacher of civil liberties and constitutional law, but his outrageous prosecution should be an object lesson for all who cherish our basic rights."
With 872,721 marijuana arrests in 2007, it's time to end the government insanity called the War On Drugs, which is a cover for the war on We The People. Hemp was voted legal in 9 out of 10 states where it was on the ballot in 2008. Ending the entire war on drugs drama would do a lot to solve the world's problems i.e. the economy and global warming. The film has already been honored:
After you enjoy a/k/a Tommy Chong, remember the time in America when we were the land of the free and the home of the brave.
We can be that again.
