Last year superstar performer Justin Bieber was photographed smoking (what appeared to be) weed. Shortly afterward, TMZ bumped into “Cheech & Chong” star Tommy Chong and asked Chong if he thought more highly of Bieber now that he knows the singer smokes pot. “Of course!” Chong laughed. He said he could tell by Bieber’s music and his dancing that Bieber was smoking pot. “It’s not just his looks. It’s his talent. And you don’t get talent like that by drinking alcohol. The herb, man! The herb!”
If the herb is Bieber’s secret weapon then Chong, 76, is sitting pretty. The legendary weed icon will compete on Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars. The entire list of celebrity contestants was revealed today on Good Morning America. The season will premiere on September 15. Tommy Chong is guaranteed to score high!
