Trailer Posted for Film About Tommy Chong's Cellmate

The trailer for Martin Scorsese's latest film, The Wolf of Wall Street, has been posted.  It stars Leonardo Dicaprio.

Why is this Cheech and Chong site posting about it?...because the film is based on a book written by Jordon Belfort. He served time at Taft Correctional at the same time Tommy Chong was at Taft.  They were cellmates.  Jordan saw that Tommy Chong was writing The I Chong: Meditations from the Joint and wanted to do the same.

Tommy Chong read his first draft and didn't like it.  Jordan rewrote the book and this is the version that was released.
