Tommy Chong nixed from Sanders rally at last minute
Actor and marijuana advocate Tommy Chong is perplexed at being dropped from a Sunday Sanders rally.
Chong, who was invited on Sunday to Sanders’ noon rally in Lincoln Park, says he is sure the campaign put distance between himself and Sanders over the marijuana issue, calling the move a “weakness” by the Sanders’ camp. He joked that his hair and makeup were done for nothing.
Chong says he already did a radio interview early Monday morning talking about how excited he was to introduce his candidate.
“Now I’m going to look like a fool, like one of those guys who starts bragging about something that isn’t true,” he tells THR. “And I don’t like that because my endorsement means a lot because of what I have gone through and what the whole [marijuana] culture has gone through.”
