tommy chong wall street journal interview hbtv hemp beach tvTommy Chong may have spent most of last year showing off his moves on Dancing With the Stars, but now he’s back to business, the marijuana business.

The legendary comedian sat down with the Wall Street Journal this week to discuss the change of attitude towards the cannabis industry. Host Paul Vigna notes that Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel recently invested millions into a marijuana business firm when only a decade ago Chong was jailed for promoting his line of water pipes.

“It’s not only going to be a recreational drug to replace a lot of the alcohol behavior, it’s going to revolutionize medicine as we know it,” says Chong.

Chong also talks about hedge funds wanting to make a brand out of Cheech and Chong, as well as the possibility of a crossover film with Harold and Kumar.
