Futurola Chong roller.  It rolls cone shaped joints.  He was giving demos at the 1 Percent store on Ludlow Street on Wednesday.

Talked about using pot suppositories to reduce his prostate cancer.
Take note that he had cancer cells, but not a dangerous level.  He just used it as a means to promote legalization.
He told a great story about how, after Up in Smoke, they needed help getting an additional film deal (without Lou Adler).  Within a few hours, Howard Brown was able to negotiate two deals with two studios for three movies for more money than Cheech and Tommy asked for.

“Cheech and I have been approached by some hedge-fund people to brand our name, and we’re in negotiations,” he said. “And we’re also looking for other hedge-fund people to approach us.”

At  the end jokingly asked what the host thought of joint gave him. Host got very nervous and said Tommy is just kidding.
