Tommy Chong Lights World-Record 23-Pound Blunt ‘Up in Smoke’ in Bel Air, California

Stoner Icon Celebrates His 86th Birthday by Planting Himself in the History Books Yet Again With the Help of Legendary Rollers

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 21, 2024 / In a legendary feat of craftsmanship and "stoner ingenuity," Tommy Chong, celebrated comedian, actor, and icon, has shattered the world record for smoking the largest handcrafted blunt. The previous record stood at just over five pounds, but Chong, along with world-class rollers Dawn "Grasshoppa" Doan and June Da Goon, champions of both the World Rolling Championship and the National Joint League, achieved the unimaginable with a 23.36-pound blunt containing a colossal 21 pounds (9,555g) of marijuana. The monumental event coincides with Tommy Chong’s 86th birthday later this week, making it a double celebration for the cannabis community and fans worldwide.

The event was a testament to the passion and dedication of the cannabis community. Dawn "Grasshoppa" Doan, the world’s first professional female roller, Rolling Champion, and judge, featured in Forbes, High Times, and Vice magazine, expressed her excitement. "It’s moments like this that make all the years of rolling worth it. June and I have been rolling professionally for over 10 years, and to be part of such a historic achievement with a legend like Tommy is beyond words."

June Da Goon, a five-time rolling champion featured in High Times magazine and on Leafly, highlighted the uniqueness of this blunt. "Most blunts over a couple pounds have to be hooked up to a fan blower. At 20 pounds, this was a feat beyond measure to rip huge clouds using nothing but lung power. There may have been other big rolls, but they didn’t smoke."

James Alexander, a key organizer of the event, emphasized the significance of its non-commercial nature. "This was a non-sponsored event, completely free of commercialization. It was important for us to do this for the love of the plant and the community. We wanted to celebrate cannabis culture in its purest form, and I believe we succeeded."

Chong commented on the achievement and its recognition. "The Guinness Book of Records might not be ‘honoring’ cannabis-related records right now, but I know in my heart we set the record here today. It was an honor to take the first toke. Plus, who needs to be in a record book when you’ve got a blunt this big?"

The historic smoke out, captured on video, showcases the spirit of unity and creativity within the cannabis community. Fans and enthusiasts can witness the record-breaking moment and join the celebration by watching the video on YouTube.

As Tommy Chong turns 86 on May 24, his enduring influence and love for the plant continues to inspire. This record-breaking event not only honors his contributions to the culture but also highlights the vibrant and innovative spirit of the community as a whole.

(LEAD) Cabinet passes motion requesting parliamentary reconsideration of special probe bill over Marine’s death


SEOUL, The Cabinet on Tuesday approved a motion demanding the National Assembly reconsider a bill mandating a special counsel investigation into the military’s response to a Marine’s death last year.

President Yoon Suk Yeol is expected to endorse the motion later in the day, sending the legislation back to the National Assembly in his 10th veto of a bill since taking office in May 2022.

The bill, which was passed by the opposition-controlled parliament early this month, calls for the appointment of a special counsel to look into allegations Yoon’s office and the defense ministry inappropriately interfered in the military’s investigation into the death of Cpl. Chae Su-geun, who was killed during a search mission for victims of heavy downpours in July 2023.

The ruling bloc, including Yoon, has opposed the bill, citing the need to first see the results of an ongoing investigation by the police and the Corruption Investigation Office for High-Ranking Officials.

“The executive branch must respect the legislat
ive branch’s legislative authority as much as possible,” Prime Minister Han Duck-soo said during a Cabinet meeting before the motion was approved. “However, this special counsel bill carries many problems in terms of its content, including its deliberative process and the recommendation method for a special prosecutor.”

In particular, Han said past special counsel probes have “always” been introduced by agreement between the rival parties or with the government’s acceptance, but the latest bill was railroaded by the opposition party and gives the opposition the sole right to recommend candidates for the special counsel, which he said could violate the president’s right to make personnel appointments and the separation of powers guaranteed by the Constitution.

“The government promises once again to do its best to determine the truth behind the case of Marine Chae and to ensure there is no carelessness in resolving the people’s suspicions,” he said.

For a bill to pass the National Assembly in a revote, it re
quires a majority of the 300-member parliament to be present and two-thirds of them to cast their ballots in favor.

While the main opposition Democratic Party holds 155 seats, together with splinter parties and independent lawmakers, the number could rise to about 180.

Unless there is support from some ruling party lawmakers, the bill could be discarded during the current session of the National Assembly, whose term expires later this month.
