Cheech And Chong's Marijuana Movie-Making

Subscribe to Cheech Marin alerts

Comedy duo Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong used to experiment with drugs on film sets to "spice up" their big screen performances.

The acting pair co-starred in a series of movies - including Up in Smoke and CHEECH AND CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE - from the late seventies to the mid eighties, and often mirrored the hedonistic behaviour of their characters between takes.

However, ultimately they concluded the mind-altering practice was better kept away from their professional lives.

Chong says, "The truth is, you know, we would smoke up maybe, sort of put a little edge on it.

"But mostly we would never smoke until after the shoot. We tried doing it the other way, but it just didn't work.

"We were pretty, what do you call it, true to the grass."
