Stoners Like Reading

Stoners like Cheech and Chong

Well, aside from the liner notes on Pink Floyd’s Ummagumma album, it’s not widely known what it is that stoners like reading. But we here at Stuff Stoners like H.Q. suspect that anything penned by the legendary Tommy Chong would be up there topping the list.

Set for release on August 12th (tentatively) is Cheech & Chong: The Unauthorized Autobiography. Written by Chong himself, this new book will detail the history of Cheech & Chong and include lots of stories never before revealed. It’ll also reveal celebrity potheads of the day! Oh, and it contains photos from Chong’s personal stash…

Oh and get this…Tommy Chong will read excepts from his new book in person on August 13th at the Bryant Park Reading Room (42nd St side of the park). Josh Gilbert, director of the A/K/A Tommy Chong, will be be hosting the event.

    to the guy who said he hates reading…. its not cause you smoke marijuana. Its because you and your friends are dumb. Real stoners read a lot and are smart people

    I love reading when i’m stoned, i like the deep thought sci-fi type shit or dystopian future stuff. If you dont like reading when your high its because you don’t like reading in general and that’s just being anti-intellectual. Saying that stoners do or don’t like reading is a stereotype anyway, some people think stoners are stupid because thats the bullshit that the government spreads and therefore the same people think stoners don’t like to read. “we” consist of many genius individuals like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and President Clinton. “We” also consist of a few dickhead high-school drop-outs. The moral is that smoking weed is fun, and dumb or smart everyone likes fun shit,
