Legendary comedy icons Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong are rolling into the Valley’s cannabis scene with their line of exclusive products.
Marin and Chong’s interest in Arizona’s market sparked a long time ago. The two are widely regarded as experts in the industry.
“We’ve been coming to Phoenix since the (1970s),” Chong said. “You get to Arizona, and you get that one joint. You don’t care if it’s sativa or indica or whatever. All you have to see is it’s from Arizona. The sun in Arizona makes the cannabis so special. The minute we had a choice to come to Arizona, we’re here.
“The sun gives it that solar power, and that’s what (marijuana) is. It’s really just solar energy. And in Arizona, (the sun is) deadly. You could grow marijuana trees here if you had the water.”
Aside from unpacking the quality that Arizona’s weather brings to the product, Marin said he often jokes about the weather bringing another purpose.
