When & Where?NEW DATE: April 30th 2004NEW LOCATION: Calico Jacks, 1259 State Road 436, Casselberry FL.

Why?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 glass water 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 was obviously targeted by the federal government because of his status as a cult figure among marijuana smokers. 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.
On April 30th , 2004 there will be a concert to raise signatures and awareness on behalf of Tommy Chong, We believe that he was unfairly imprisoned and needs your help . So, come out to Calico Jacks and help support Tommy Chong while having a booty shakin', rockin' time!
