Chong Prosecutor Responds To Accusations

U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan, the person responsible for wrongfully persecuting Tommy Chong to boost her career, is currently being investigated for her role in the wrongful firing of eight U.S. Attorneys.

She says that she prosecuted Chong because Chong Glass sold "drug-cutting agents, not just bongs and other items sometimes cast as the harmless mind-your-own-business paraphernalia of lone pot smokers. All the costs were paid for by assets forfeited by Chong's business, she said, refuting claims by critics that the prosecution cost taxpayers millions of dollars."

You have to ask yourself...of all the people that were arrested for Operation Pipedreams, how come Tommy Chong is the only person that was sent to prison.

Update: "In stories April 26 and 27 about U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan, The Associated Press reported erroneously that a company owned by comic Tommy Chong sold substances used to "cut" or dilute illegal drugs. Chong's company was one of several Buchanan's office prosecuted for selling illegal drug paraphernalia, but it did not sell drug-cutting supplies."
