Cheech & Chong are a comedy duo consisting of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. In the 1970s and 1980s these two stereotypical stoners symbolized cannabis culture in the United States. In their first movie Up in Smoke (1978), the two become friends and drive from Tijuana to Los Angeles in a van that is entirely made of marijuana fibre. In Nice Dreams (1981), Cheech and Chong make a fortune by selling a shipment of marijuana out of an ice cream truck. And Still Smokin (1983) is their ultimate high as they arrive in Amsterdam.
Cheech: “Hey, what’s in this shit, man?”
Chong: “Mostly Maui Wowie, man. But it’s got some Labrador in it.”
Cheech: “What’s Labrador?”
Chong: “It’s dog shit.”
Chong: “Yeah, my dog ate my stash, man. Had it on the table, and the little motherfucker ate it, man. So I had to follow him around with a little baggie for three days before I got it back. Really blew the dog’s mind.”
Cheech: “You mean we’re smoking dog shit, man?”
Chong: “Gets you high, don’t it?”
