Give Me a Break!
Tommy Chong's company "Chong Glass Factory" and his home were raided by federal drug agents and other officials yesterday. They found a small amount of marijuana in his home and arrested him.
It was part of a nationwide DEA plan to close companies that manufacture and sell drug paraphernalia.
The bust was organized by Attorney General John Ashcroft.
Hold the phone!
You mean to tell me Ashcroft has so much time on his hands he's going after bong salesmen on the Internet?
Where is the Anthrax perpetrator? Where is Bin Laden?
Ashcroft is the man who had the breasts covered on priceless bronze sculptures of women in Washington, DC., so it doesn't surprise me that he tends to focus on crap while the world's falling apart.
But busting Tommy Chong? Wasn't that just a bit too easy?
The United States Attorney General has some serious international criminals to help apprehend, try and convict right now. Wasting his time on an aging pothead found holding a dime bag of weed is a waste of taxpayer money.
How can we take these feds seriously when they ignore the crucial work that must be done in favor of silly pot busts?
Ashcroft, get your head out of your ass and do your job, you clown.
