    How is it that a DEA agent is the one who breaks the law and a celebrity like Tommy Chong is the one that takes the fall?

    No that cop was being a dick. If you're turning yourself in they don't handcuff you. I've never been handcuffed turning myself in. What are you going to do? You already walked in the jail. 😆

    Fucking DEA man, arresting this legend who didn't hurt a damn soul. I remember when he was busted WAY back in 2002 or 03 and it broke my heart, but how cool was it that his cellmate was the fucking WOLF OF WALL STREET?

    OK, here goes. The control system cannot even get a conviction on a celebrity for child rape, but if you believe Tommy Chong went to jail for nine months for making bongs, you are one gullible person. Maybe you believe Roman Polanski should be left alone, and Michael Jackson was innocent.
    It's easier to beat the system as a broke, famous person accused of murder, than a rich, unknown person, I know I'm a three strikes survivor.

    It is documented that this dude got a job with his son's company and shipped the paraphernalia himself, but he still got busted. Did the charges stick? I know they busted him for having illegal music on his computer or something, but did those charges actually stick? That's proof that there is no freedom in the United States anymore.

    As funny as this whole story is...the DEA broke the law and sent a harmless stoner to jail while wasting a years worth of publicly funded recources. He wasn't selling meth to kids, he was making bongs that our own government shipped across PA lines. I mean, I'm just assuming its true, I'm sure a lot of the story was omitted for time. Still, this is where your tax dollars go.
