FCC Shirts In Hustler

Our F*CK THE FCC t-shirt can be seen in the October issue of Hustler magazine (available at newsstands today). Look for the naked girl wearing nothing, but a t-shirt. It's a very political issue and discusses, among other things, Howard Stern.
Stonerdude, the brilliant designer of these shirts, is also mentioned. Visit his web site here.
Buy the shirts at our Contraband Store

Update: Once again, Allan conducted a very thorough interview. Here are the highlights.
  • When the agents raided Chong's house, they weren't looking for drugs, they were looking for bongs and weapons. Tommy explained that if you are busted for bongs and also have a weapon in your house, it increases the length of your sentence (even if you have a permit).
  • Agents appeared to be embarassed that they had to conduct this raid.
  • Agents confiscated the bongs, but left the opium pipes because Operation Pipedream only wanted marijuana-related items.
  • Tommy expects the new Cheech and Chong movie to enter production this September.

Chong Does Leno

This evening, Tommy Chong made his first television appearance since being released from prison. The interview was great. Tommy looked good. Jay recapped what happened to Tommy. There were plenty of jokes about prison life.
As revealed earlier by Cheech and Chong Dot Com, Cheech Marin made a surprise visit. Tommy and Cheech once again confirmed that they are working on a new movie.
Jay really should have bumped the World Cup guests. The entire show have been dedicated to C & C.

Earlier today, Tommy Chong was finally released from California's Taft Correctional.

Tommy had been serving a nine month sentence because Chong Glass shipped bongs to Pennsylvania via US Mail. Ironically, Tommy did not own, nor operate Chong Glass. The business merely used Chong's likeness.

It was all part of the Bush/Ashcroft "religious right" crusade. Tommy was punished for his movies, not for anything he did. Dozens of other headshops were busted during the same Operation Pipedreams crusade. However, Tommy was the only one who served time.

The Feds told Tommy Chong that if he didn't take the rap for Chong Glass, his wife and son would. They also promised Tommy that they would be lenient on him. THEY LIED!
