This bud’s for you, pot enthusiasts, as the stoner-comedy duo of Cheech & Chong makes its way to Victoria on Sunday as part of a first-ever national tour — dubbed, fittingly, the O Cannabis Tour.Wait — could this be true? The party-friendly pair with one Canadian member (Edmonton-born Tommy Chong, not Cheech Marin, who is from Los Angeles) has never trekked across Canada during their 50-plus years together? Surely, they must be forgetting something, a residual effect of five decades of pot use and wear and tear on their brains.
“We’ve always come in and out of Canada,” Chong said in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun. “But this is really our first cross-country tour ever.
The reason for the delay? “Well, Cheech is Mexican and I’m Canadian, so that’s a slow combo right there,” Chong said.
The two brothers from another mother — who played brothers separated at birth who can feel each other’s pain in the 1984 movie The Corsican Brothers — have been reunited since 2008, after splitting in 1985.
