… And Suddenly, Sales of Brownie Mix Skyrocketed 

In the '70s and '80s, the comic antics of the stoned man's Laurel and Hardy, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, earned them a place of honor in the humid closet of counterculture with such films as "Up in Smoke." After their breakup in 1985, while Cheech continued film work, Tommy Chong maintained his public affinity for marijuana, which led to a role on "That '70s Show" as well as some prison time in 2003-2004 as a result of the government's Operation Pipe Dreams and Operation Headhunter. A free man again, Chong is coming to the Richmond Funny Bone with his wife, Shelby, for three nights of comedy, April 28-30, to the delight of herbalists everywhere. Tickets are $22. 521-8900 S
