Free Tommy Chong!!!

  1. Take Action Now!

    Dear NORML Supporter:

    As you have probably heard by now, on September 11, 2003 cultural icon
    Tommy Chong was sentenced to nine months in federal prison for his role in
    selling marijuana pipes on the Internet through his legally licensed
    company Tommy Chong Glass. Tommy Chong is the first person to be
    prosecuted under John Ashcroft's "Operation Pipe Dreams" and "Operation
    Headhunter," which shut down national glass distributors nationwide,
    resulting in the indictment of over 55 people.

    Tommy Chong, one half of the Cheech & Chong comedy troupe that practically
    invented marijuana comedy, has been a celebrity among marijuana smokers
    and non-smokers alike since the 1970's. Recently, he has had a recurring
    role on 'That 70's Show' and was planning on a long awaited Cheech and
    Chong reunion movie with Cheech Marin. Tommy Chong was obviously targeted
    by the federal government because of his status as a cult figure among
    marijuana smokers.

    Ironically, Tommy Chong was sentenced on September 11, 2003, exactly two
    years after the worst terrorist attacks in American history. With Osama
    Bin Laden still on the loose and President Bush admitting that the war on
    terrorism is far from over, it is preposterous that we would waste
    valuable law enforcement resources locking up a comedian for selling glass
    pipes. Can anyone in America honestly say they feel safer today because
    Tommy Chong, a comedian and actor, has been sentenced to 9 months in
    federal prison for selling pipes on the internet? Of course not. These
    laws do nothing except make criminals out of otherwise law abiding

    The federal raids on paraphernalia distributors has been an utter waste of
    time and money, while it has ruined the lives and careers of otherwise law
    abiding citizens. These businesses pay taxes and do not in any way
    contribute to the crime problem in America. To target them at this time
    shows a total lack of understanding as to which risks truly threaten the
    health, welfare and safety of America's citizens.

    Please take two minutes to write your members of Congress and tell them to
    stop funding Operation Pipe Dreams and Operation Headhunter, and to
    immediately release Tommy Chong, by visiting:

    Thanks for your support.

  3. I copied this thread to this forum since Chong is a Seasoned Toker and all. :) Plus, you guys need to start going to the Legalization and Activism forum and post some ideas so we can get some laws changed!!!! :D

    (I know, shameless way to lure people to a forum but wouldn't you all like to get high without worrying about going to jail?)

    *Plus, it was cloudman's idea for more coverage and I aim to please!

  9. Wow, what complete and total bullcrap.

    I did good though... today at school when I found out about that I wrote a program that printed a copy of the letter 'Free Tommy Chong' on every printer in our entire school 5 times. I didn't include a name so everyone could just fill in their own, and hopefully mail it out.

    I'm sure I'll get booted fromt the network, but it was well worth it!
