Tommy Chong to Launch New Show on Dish Network and the Web

According to Page Six, Tommy Chong will be launching a YouTube channel called Keep it Legal.  They'll discuss “anything that affects the pot smoker’s status in any way, negative or positive.”

He says he's been using marijuana as a pain killer during this cancer battle.  The pain is so bad he has to wake in the middle of the night to smoke up.

It's actually called Almost Legal.

Tommy Chong has teamed up with popular app WeedMaps for a sketch comedy series aimed at the "stoner" audience. Almost Legal, starring the comedian and featuring such guests as Hannibal Burress, Danny Trejo, Steve-O, Andy Milonakis and Garfunkel and Oates, will air via FilmOn Networks which has secured distribution over Dish Network in addition to its own streaming site FilmOn.com, claiming 70 million monthly uniques internationally.

The show is directed by his son, Paris (nepotism alert). Paris has no noteworthy experience directing so I guess Tommy insisted on it.
