Stumping for pot
WASHINGTON (AP) - January 14, 2010 -- Cheech and Chong, and Cohen, too.
Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen shared the stage last night with the stoner comedy duo Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. Cohen's a Democrat from Memphis who supports legalized medical marijuana and easing of drug laws.
He was a featured speaker at the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project's 15th annual gala.
Cohen got nearly as big a hand from the crowd as Cheech and Chong, who were given a lifetime "trailblazer" award by the pro-pot group.
