Actor Tommy Chong guilty in drug pipe sales

Tuesday, May 13, 2003

By Torsten Ove, Post-Gazette Staff Writer







Actor Tommy Chong of "Cheech and Chong" fame pleaded guilty this morning in federal court in Pittsburgh to selling drug paraphernalia over the Internet and faces 6 months to a year in federal prison. His family's company, Chong Glass in California, also entered a guilty plea.

The case against Chong, 64, was part of "Operation Pipe Dreams," a national crackdown on drug paraphernalia that was launched in Pittsburgh during the prosecution of Akhil Kumar Mishra and his wife, Rajeshwari, who ran two headshops Downtown. They were convicted in federal court in 2000 of selling illegal drug paraphernalia and conspiracy.

Chong waived indictment before a federal judge and admitted he sold bongs and pipes online and promoted them at personal appearances around the country. His family business was raided by agents on Feb. 24.

He will be sentenced Sept. 11. U.S. District Judge Art Schwab let him go on $20,000 bond.

This is complete bullshit. Why don't we start charging the owners of the oil industry because oil, from which gasoline comes, can be used by arsonists to burn down buildings. I can use a glass pipe to smoke drugs, or to set on my bookshelf to look pretty. Just because something can be used for something illegal shouldn't make it illegal. This ultra conservative raping of the constitution is really starting to piss me off.

He pled guilty. It isn't like he got railroaded.

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

THey railroaded him into pleading guilty.

They told him if he made a big fuss they'd make things much worse for him. If he kept quiet, they said he'd get off with a slap on the wrist.

I don't think it bothers Tommy much because of the new Cheech and Chong films coming up which keeps him happy :smile:
