Will the stoner humor of comedy duo Cheech and Chong survive marijuana legalization?
I hadn’t really thought about it before, but a good amount of their comedy, especially in their films, hinges on their interactions with law enforcement and pot being illegal. As states legalize and the federal government backs off of their 100% prohibition stance, could it be that future generations just won’t get the jokes?
Do we have examples of booze humor from the days of alcohol prohibition? How did that comedy hold up?
While Cheech and Chong have enjoyed extremely long careers, their work may not be as immortal as once thought.by
