“THEY WERE LIKE THIEVES COMING IN MY HOUSE LOOKING FOR MONEY, BECAUSE THATS WHAT THEY ARE” -TOMMY CHONG

FBI AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SEEKS TO SILENCE TOMMY CHONG!

(THIS STORY IS SIMILAR TO THE LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENTS ACTIONS IN THE PAST WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE JUNE ELECTION. THE LOCAL UNBALANCED MEDIA REPORTING, WHERE EDITORS OF THE THREE BIG MENDOCINO NEWSPAPERS, TWN, UDJ, FBA, HAVE OPENLY DECIDED TO SUPPORT MEASURE B , AND HAVE CONSISTENTLY SENSATIONALIZED EVERY BUST IN MENDOCINO COUNTY IN HOPES TO EXAGGERATE AND MAGNIFY THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA GROWN, THESE PAPERS ARE OWNED BY MULTI-NATIONAL MEDIA CONGLOMERATES AND DO NOT REPRESENT THE VOICE OF MENDOCINO COUNTY!)

FBI Raid Linked To Political DVD’s

Actor and comic Tommy Chong says he is linked to FBI raids Wednesday in Newport and Clermont County’s Union Township.
Chong tells Local 12 federal agents were after thousands of DVD copies of a documentary he recently made.

Tommy Chong, 30 years ago, appeared in the movie that made him famous, “Up In Smoke.”

But today, Tommy Chong is 69-years-old and selling a different movie, called “The United States of America Vs. Tommy Chong.”

The documentary details Chong’s 2003 federal prosecution and guilty plea for distributing drug paraphernalia. He was selling pot pipes online. Chong served nine months in prison.

Wednesday night, Chong told Local 12 he’s the focus of an FBI raid of two, local offices.

“They apparently confiscated 10,000 copies of the movie, “a/k/a Tommy Chong,” said Chong.

Only Local 12 cameras were on Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road Wednesday evening, watching federal agents raid the offices of 513 Ventures Agents also took evidence from the Spectrum Labs offices in Newport.

The companies market “detoxification products,” meant to help someone pass a drug test.

But Chong says agents seized 10,000 DVDs of his documentary.

    wondering why the trailer to my film is only the 3rd one posted here.

  2. So they confiscated DVD’s, how about releasing the film via web downloads? I am a budding activist on this subject and would love to help in anyway possible.
