Hi everybody. Oh my God, fucking fuck, I'm so excited right now. I can't even explain how excited I am. I have waited so long to say welcome to genuinely GG my podcast show. Oh my God, whoever's out there listening right now, thank you, thank you, thank you for being here. I hope you stick around. I hope you message me tell me what you want to hear more of. Oh my God, I'm so excited. I'm so excited. You know, I've really wanted to do this just because, like I think, for so long I have been painted out as this controversial person who just doesn't really follow any particular beat, goes to their own, you know, drum and I broken a lot of taboos. I've been doubted, I've been ridiculed, I've been judged and, you know what, the decisions that I make in my life, and have made the biggest ones, like the way I decided to have a child, I'm going to be judged forever, pretty much. You know what I mean. So here I am. I want to do this podcast show too, pretty much just say to everybody, Hey, it's okay to be different, it's okay to have a life, that's not based on what society is painted out and let's talk about all those controversies, let's discuss the questions and, you know, get the answers for things that I think everyone's kind of scared a little bit to just want to know anything about or ask about, like where do you goes? You go to like Church and say, you know, forgive me, father, I have sinned because you're not happy in your marriage and you want to go sleep with other people. You know, no, there's a there's an answer for that. I know now I'm here to help navigate those answers about all those controversial topics. I don't want to be like a lot of other podcast show hosts because I am about controversy. So I had to bring in a cohost. I wanted someone who is not going to agree with every single thing that I say. I want someone who's going to be the voice of you guys. You know she's going to have those questions, because as much as we love each other, we also have our differences, and I am talking about one of my dearest friends. A lot of you guys know and have seen Anita go hrry. So I'm really happy to have you Anita, I'm so happy to be a part of this and thank you and I'm honored that you picked me to go on this fun and controversial journey with you. And I think are you excited for this? I'm so excited. Are you as nervous as I am? or No, I can't even remember having liked how to breathe a little. But yeah, I think it would be amaz why don't you tell the people a little bit about you, Nita? Um, Gosh, let me tell you about me. So, I know, hi, out from Ohio. I have some been big weird thing for our Persian people in La to meet a Persian girl from Ohio. I just want to person out. You wish girl from Ohio. Oh, that's true. The Jewish cart change of links to that. So but yeah, I know, I I come from, you know, a different background than the Goldnessa and and so, yeah, we have a lot of differences but a lot of similarity, similarities, and so it's kind of fun sometimes to like debate and argue about certain things and and I hope that, yes, I can't be the voice and bringing another perspective to her thoughts and and in there. And I we've been friends for about ten, eleven years now. That was a night we actually met through mutual friends, through Raza, and Anita was has been, you know, on the show so many times, you know, because she's just so close to all of us that are on Shaws. That is crazy as all of them and I gots, it ended up being like the best of friends. But, you know, we've been friends for so many years and I think that we have so many similarities, that like our values and our mannerisms, but our differences make us so...

...unique. So I'm really, really happy to have a need to here to contribute to the controversy. You know, let's shake it up, guys, do it. Do this, Anita and I. We want to start the show, we want to start every show with, you know, a little bit of the what's been going on in the world and something we call ward on the street are Oh my God, what is the word on the street right now, other than Megan markle and having the skin color of her baby? Questions, like, what the hell, I don't even know what is. What do you think? What are you taking from this situation right now? I it's I'm kind of speechless on this one, because I do feel like in a sense, she kind of knew what she was signing up for. What do you mean, like when you're when you're going into this, the royal family, and your in, you and you're going and you see what kind of being no, a kate went through what she went through with them. Yeah, Diana, you saw she went through. So I feel like she kind of knew what she was getting into. So when you get asked that, I mean, but I don't think anyone's prepared. If listen, I question the racial aspect to it. I'm not saying it wasn't racist or was racist. I don't know. I wasn't in the room. I have no idea the direction of the conversation. But as a mother, HMM, okay, I especially as a mother who used a sperm donor. Okay, you really want to know what your baby's gonna look like when it comes out. You want to know what kind of hair is it going to have? What color the eyes going to be, what color will this skin be? I personally requested, you know, some sperm that was gonna give me a darker looking baby. I got a white babies on Hap what I mean. So I did. I thought that my baby was going to come out darker than me. So I wondered all of these things, as everyone does. That happened there? Was it different? That's the thing. So we we only have one side of the story. That's that's one of the issues. But I think, yes, I mean everyone's going to say, everyone's going to talk about it, like I wonder whose eyes it's going to get. A wonder who's like lips and nose, and everyone's curious. Right. But again, was the question directed as what will be? So right, what will the kid look like like? Oh, what is it kids going to what is it kick and to look like? Or I wonder how dark this kid's going to be. So what was what was the question? How was it phrase? Well, not to discredit Megan Marco in any way, but she has said one person specifically said they were wondering what, you know, how to dark or whatever the skin town of would be of the baby, and I don't know who that person is. I really don't understand what is going on. And they're going to yeah, it's just, you know, we don't know and it's really hard if you do have coexisting issues with people in that you know, institution, as they call the royal family or House, it's going to be inevitable to not want to jump and get more scared at every word that comes out of their mouth. You know. Was it a racial thing, though, you know, or was it just a curiosity? I really don't know. I mean, I could I think it's stems out that it could have maybe been curiosity at first whatever, but then when they said that there's going to be no royal title and no security given, that's that's an and type whole another thing, and that's where I yeah, that's where it gets a little now. Yeah, that is that is I mean, I honestly she's pregnant with her second one. It's an exciting time to be a mother and I honestly hope that they don't have to deal with the stress of coming from a family or an institution of racist people. That would be the worst, worst thing possible. So I honestly I wish...

...her the best. And you know, hey, you know, Kudos to you for being strong and stepping away from all that. Yes, you know, for your family. Yeah, and and and and speaking of Babies, Oh my God, chloe Kardashian, you know, we see the first episode of the last season keeping up with the I I think I'm gonna have a nager withdrawal symptoms, like I don't know what I'm going to do without the Kardashians. But Oh my God, the first episode chloe is sitting there with Cam and is asking him, you know about Sara get and that? I was reading some articles and chloe interest in apparently are back together and they have some frozen embryos and Holy Shit, you know, Holy Shit. I don't know the backstory on why chloe can't carry the baby herself. I don't know if it's like a medical thing or something going on. I did it. I didn't see anything about that. Yeah, I don't know either. But like or maybe you think she's lost so much weight and look so great. She doesn't. Maybe doesn't want to tell yourself. I mean it's yeah, but no celebrity would ever admit to not wanting to put on they whatever I meant it. Yeah, but I like that. Yes, I think that that's a little bit off one on here, but she looks great. I mean she's just come a long way. So who chloe and her body? So I could see my she she works out like a crazy, crazy person. I follow her I love her. She comments on my pictures and on my stuff. So I love you, Chloe, you know. But what I want to know is, is she back with Tristan and they are deciding to have another child together for that fact? Or is she saying that I already have one with with him and I do want another child, I want to give true a sibling. Do I just use the same DNA, the same buildup of you know, genetics? You know? Is that? Because I wonder about that. I have a baby. I have embryos frozen from the same donor father, you know, sitting on ice. So if I ever wanted to have a child, I don't know, it's going to say I have to. I have embryo sitting on ice. Girl. Yeah, I got babies father. Maybe maybe Elijah's brother or sister will come out darker skinned or something. I don't know, but then I'll be really weird. Yeah, you know, I don't know. I don't even know about one another one. But I wonder if chloe's doing it for the simple fact that it's more convenient to have two kids from the same DNA. I don't but then't. But then look at her family. They come from such a different background, because they all, you know, from like different fathers. Now they all have the same fathers. All the kids have the same ducks, no, the same wall. Now they all have the same fathers. Am There's Oh my God, it is about to be the last season of keeping up with Kardashians and I think I'm gonna have to sit with you from season one, because I am. Do you guys understand? Cary Anita is on this podcast show with me right now because she doesn't need how many? I mean, listen, they're a little bit slutty and they sleep with a lot of people, but as far as like popping babies out the badge, they all have same daddy's. No, no, they all have the same daddies, but their their background, like comes from. What's the the what's Kim and Kim's father, the Robert Kardashian are meeting? Yeah, it does, and then you have and then you have. I have no idea. What I need is talking about it anymore. I I you know what, whow we will. For whatever reason. You're having a baby, sweetie, with trust and again, I love you for it, I support you. I think it's amazing. I'm so excited if you do do it, and I hope, you know, it works out for whatever it is you she's strong...

...enough to handle whatever comes at her. anyways. I love you, cloak. anyways. With that being said, I'm very, very excited and need I'm very excited by our guests today. You know, he's someone who I have always admired for his creativity and bravery to stick to his passion and stop at absolutely nothing. He's the creator of cannabis comedy. Like for sure. This man literally utilized being a stoner into an empire and he's still cashing out on it. He was busted on bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit paraphernalia charges, but ended up, and with really cool circumstance, hea ends up in prison with the wolf of Wall Street sharing his cell. You know, Jordan Belfont, which is cool. Everyone knows the wolf of all street, Leonards to cappry out. It was based on the book that the actual guy wrote and he was inspired to write that book because of sharing his time in prison with Tommy Chunk. So that's a really cool and fun fact. This guy be cancer twice with the help of cannabis, which for me that's a huge thing because I have an autoimmune disease. Honestly, I'm just so excited to be, you know, sitting here with this man because he's advocated for something that I've been trying to advocate for for a while now. But he was advocating for it when it was a crime, it was illegal, and you were considered a criminal if you had anything to do with cannabis. You guys. I'm really excited. Said, now it's my guess. Right now, it is not fucking POETO. Mr Tommy, thank you so much for joining us. What what's your first time? What's my one? You're sign, your astrology sign. Oh, I'm as Sagittarius. Now you're exciting, right next to Scorpio. Yeah, teaches a Sagittari. Yeah, Oh really? Yeah, we get alone. So we get alone. I'm a Gemini. I don't even know when. When? When? That means? No, exactly. Wait, wait, darn, jeminize the double heads or something. Now you got a Jim. Check it out. Check it out, you get you got a whole world learned about. Check it out, because its astrology is Chinese, you know, and and it really is who we are. And so when you when you get into astrology, you're going to you're going to learn the lot, you get hooked on it. I'm I'm might. One of my girlfriend's actually always tries to get me into it and I sometimes think it sounds a little cookie, but I'm like, okay, well, that's I don't even coincidences and I don't believe an accident. So it's too common to be a coincidence, so I'll wig into it a little bit more. No, yeah, you know, you're you're young. You got a lot of growing to do. So your thank you. Thank you. I pay a lot of doctors to make me look that way. I'm about to be forty years old. Really Right, I look almost as young as you. I was looking, I was thinking maybe twenty three. God bless you, Tom Me Chim God bless you. Yeah, you know, I'm sure it's your secret is staying as young as you look, but I must be the weed. Must be the weed. Yeah, you have a hearth that coming up in May, which I see you're going to be eighty three. Eighty three, that's is you look fifty. How well, I gotta what. God really likes me. That's no, no, I'm a...

...favorite, and he's for sure. You know I must be because when, let's say, people say to me, how do you know God really loved you, and I tell him, have you seen my wife? Amen to that. Amen. She's gorgeous. She is legs for days and shakes for days and she's got that that personality, you know, that beautiful women have, you know, to repel people from getting too close. You know that Shit. Well, you know what I'm saying, that you don't want to be too nice to guys because next thing you know, they're falling in love with you. Yeah, well, you know I I I have been really reading a lot recently, not knowing that I'm going to have you on my show. I mean I flipped out and I've just been reading everything and watching everything about you. And not only can you really tango in real life, but the tango that you and your wife's share spiritually, it's just honestly beautiful. For someone like me who doesn't necessarily believe in marriage, I just think your unity together is quite amazing. What she doesn't? She never believed in marriage. She was never going to marry me until until the lawyer the account and told her that if something happens to me, she doesn't get anything. We were married a week later. Oh my gosh, that's hilarious. No, seriously, she knows because we were best friends. You know, I was I was married before and she was my best friend all when she went through high school and then, you know, the friendship developed. Well, what happened? We took it. We took Alice. Do to other. Yeah, that's what happened. We took acid, and if you take acid with a member of the opposite sex, you have a bond that will be there forever, you know, for forever. And instead of forever, we ended up being together period. And then then she became my partner in comedy because when cheat that broke up, I got tired of being alone and so I asked her to come on the row with me. She said no, I don't want to just sit in the dress room. So I said, well, but if I put you in this in the show, and she wrote, she was an actress at the time. She goes, okay, verty she's great for your show. Oh No, she's funny. Speaking of Cheach, I see that you and a cheach will be opening dispensaries. That's pretty cool. Isn't that cool? That's beyond cool. Just a place to go hang out and you're going to have just like years and years of your guys's work and whatnot together in the dispensary. That's just going to be gorgeous. We're going to have some of the vehicles you know from the movies, the weed band, the clown car. We're going to have all that stuff in different dispensers and then teach that teacher are going to go around and be there personally, you know, make personal appearances hang out. Okay, well, MOM would have truth, Mr Chong, between you and Chech who has the better? We'ed it. Oh, I do. Of course teach would, even he didn't let me selling bombs. Really it was an antique, but he look like ant I parapannlia really, and then and then all of a sudden, you know, the boom hit. But now he's members having teaching Jong Bogs. So so we're amazing. Well, speaking of being for...

...and against cannabis, I know that in your entire past you have also used cannabis for your cancer treatment. Yeah, and I also have an autoimmune disease for the last thirteen years, which I've been using cannabis for the last four and a half years yeah, and before that I have tried every level of medication, every chemo, steroids, everything, and my mother, you know, sort of urged me into trying, you know, natural remedies, sort of cannabis, and I'm thinking, Mom, Oh my God. Yeah, back in the day, I drove to my drug dealers house, you know, we got a little zip lock bag and so I sat down and really learned about it. And I know that you used, you know, cannabis for your candidate. But aside from cancer, before your cancer situation, how would you define the way you were using? How would you define your use? You would just say you're a stoner, or how do you explain that? I know I was. I am a musician, and so when you play music you got to be careful how much you do because you got to you know you're going to be able to move and play and think and then come in on time and no lyrics and stuff like that. So I would we was to do these little skinny joints called pinners, very tiny. They take and I was always a one two toker. Maybe, Dude. That's that's it. put it out. Fine, I'm good and I go play music and everything else. Then when we finish right, then take another couple of topes put it out. I was always a tope and put it out her because because you never just sat around and just don't just smoke the whole fat join like I seen. No, that was just the image of Tommy Cheek. Oh, told me it was for the movie. No, for sure. No, I was never. Never. Yeah, that's it. I think that's made it funnier, because when you're stone or too long, it's not funny, it's perfect. And so when you're like we did in the movie, you know, it was like a flash here and a fliss there, and and and then in the end, you know, we were okay. You know. So we didn't have to and I think that was the big the big that's why it was such a big hit, because we we left the ending ambiguous so that the viewer there was no conclusion. Oh, I saw that story, boom and the story. But with us the story continued right, continuate, and it still is continued and it's still going. It's still boy. For me, I would say that it did start for the medical purposes and I realized, Holy Shit, this keeps me so calm because I've just been an angry bird, you know, most of my life and very angry. There you go. It's really good. It's really good, helpful. I you know, it just it's a transform me and it allowed me to see a different part of life that I think I wasn't able to access and I try to explain that and to a lot of people I feel like they just make a mockery or, you know, ridicule me. And and now I have a ten month old baby and thank you. You know, I got a sperm donor, I got his best little swimmers and, you know, I knocked myself up with a little, you know, thinging. So I just wanted a child so badly, you know, and I know it comes with judgment and I'm being judged every day and now I'm being judged. How did you deal with that? No, no,...

...no, with that. Well, first of all, judging is is wrong. Judge not. That's what the the scripture says. Judge not. And and so, you know, yeah, I doubt was it with humor. That's how I got you my whole life. You know, it was either humor or fight, you know, and I was too skinny to to make a din and so rather than, you know, have people because if you don't have humor, you can be a punching bag, you can be a pretty pitch petty thing. But if you can make someone laugh, especially when you insult them, you know you do it. You do it in such a way that they have to laugh right. See, see, that's way better than a punch, because punch could you can hurt yourself. But but if you can do it verbally, and that's what I learned to do, don't go anywhere because after the break, the youngest daughter, she's a dad, can you give me some joints? And I give a joice and I found out LADER, she was selling them at school. You know what? You know how I learned to be around girls, to be charming. You know, when I was young kid, we used to walk to school. I'd always walk with the older girl grows right and and they wouldn't see me, and so they would talk in front of me and and I could hear them talk about what they liked in a guy. Right, what guys, what guys they thought was really cool, and what guys you thought were really Dorky and really yeah, yeah, Yucky, and and so then. So I've got a real good, clear picture of what kind of guy that girls like, and so then I tried to you know. So as as a parent, did you? Did you use that as well? Because obviously in your in these massive movies around the world and everyone is starting to think of you as just that stoner guy. And now here you are this. You're a father of six, you have all these kids and you take them to school, you take them to programs. How do you deal with that outside I or the weight of the other parents, because I'm about to, you know, soon for me, I got to put him and you know, nursery and preschool, in kindergarten, and everyone is judging me for being this sperm donor using all the pop smokey. Oh No, no, no, no, no, don't, don't let him. Don't even don't let yourself go there. Don't let yourself go there. The way, the way you raise anything, especially kids, is by example. They will copy you, good or bad. I always remember that, you know, like little gangsters. Sometimes there their father, uncle or someone's who they looked up to. There the gangster. All sudden you got a little gangster in hand. So the best way to raise kids this by example and with humor, with humor. So many kids, so many parents. They would play our records for their for their kids, and they would bond the kids to their parents. And because it was all humor, it was it made you laugh, because humor diffuses a situation and certain so there's no judgment, because you can't judge when you're laughing. Right, and'm saying you can't be evil, you can't be not mean. You meet. And so that's what that's what I learned and that's how I raised my kids. was with humor. Where you're going? What did you use humor? Did you use your sense of humors to explain that to your children as well, like your lifestyle or your choices? You know, the best way to raise kids is to have them teach you.

I've got this, okay, I've got this great system. Like I got into metaphysics, I got into spirituality when I was in prison and I got into these books, Joe Goldsmith Book and there's an Emmett Fox book, and they're like very beautiful, you know, metaphysical books about spirituality. So after I had my cancer operation, I was laid up in bed, so I asked my daughter, I sho and will you read to me? And of course you know, dad asked her favor this. Sure, and so my daughter tems out, comes over right on and she started reading to me and I was in the hospital. You know. That was but five years ago. She still comes over every almost every week, and reads to me. It became a thing. Now what happened? She read to me. I get the message, but she gets a message. She learned right. And and so if you want to teach your kids anything, have them read to you and what you want to not tell them what to do, but have them tell you what to do. You can say, honey, what does that mean? And then have them read whatever that you whatever message you want to get through to them. Ask them to explain it to you, you see. And so that's how people learn things when they're teaching, like teachers, music teachers. They love teaching music because they're learning themselves, you see. And so there's there's no I know, there's a there's a way, you know, and I've seen so many unhappy parents say, you know, I did, I did everything I could. Instead of the best said you know, I did everything, and he's still turn still stole over me. Did you know he still be giving a jugging all that shit. You See. Well, it's not of what you're doing for them, it's making Zam do it for you. Right, seeing the orientals, when the kids get sold enough, he becomes an a prinice right somewhere. You know, you've got to learn how to cook. So you start by washing dishes. You know, she's waiting tables, you know. So so if you want to, if you really want to beautiful child, you raise them like you would do a part of plant. You know, you don't give him too much affection, you'll kill it, but you don't ignore too much. The same thing which you do. You give it great amount of substance and put him in the right area, you know. And so, if you can afford it, make check out the schools that that that you want them to go to. And then, more than anything, friends. They need friends. Yeah, agree to that. That's where kids learned. What do you mean? Are you a friend here kids? Maybe right. Is that the role of a parent? You thinks that's kind of friends her child. You know, you got to be the serious one. You know, you can roll play if you yeah, if you don't have a partner, but you should have a partner. But do know what you do like I say, what you do is have the kid make the decision. Right. Yeah, it's your decision, dear. You know you want to do this or do you want to do that, because a lot of times kids act up just wear at tension. Yeah, and man, still question Matd to that. Did you have an age preference or something for your children on when you decided? This is a safe ground for me to talk to them. As far as who is Tommy Chung in the movies and in the industry and who is...

Tommy Chong at home as your father? Do you give yourself an age for that child, or do you wait for them to ask our I hate what's this? I was really lucky. I was married twice. This my second wife. My first wife, she's a church lady, you know, and she goes to church and things in the choir, you know, plays piano and that, and so she raised my my two daughters basically, you know, dad was just the guy that came and went. My second wife, now, she was younger and and so there was a different dynamics with them. But when I became who I am, my my kids, especially my older daughters, they loved it because they came they become they're in high school at the time, and so they were really famous with all their all their friends and I like the Red Hot Chili peppers. You know, they were big fans of mine. And then they found out my daughter was my daughter. You know. Yeah, so theyre don't. So they were like, well, they didn't mind the image or the persona. They didn't mind it at all. Did they ask you to love them out? Did? They were saying, Dad, and we smoke out. You know, the funniest thing my both my daughter, neither one of my daughters. Oh, I got three daughters. Let him smoke. Let Him and I would give my second know, the youngest daughter. She's a dad. Can you give me some joints? And I give her joint and I found it later she was selling them at school. She she was in high school. She was had to be about fourteen and fifteen, some of whom were on there, because she left for Paris. I think she quit school at Sixteen. She left for Paris to become a model and you know. And so she was a model in Paris and she went with one of the can you remember the name of the group? But anyways, shot like a rock and roll she's that friends with David Bowie and that whole crew, that whole crew. She went rock and roll that time. Then she ended up marrying an artist to be keen. and Oh no, she's good. Never had a baby, though, but she had some medical issue. But raid on. My oldest daughter, she had a son, burly, early and he's now had babies with his Chinese wife. Oh Nice, so I got two great grandchildren. That's amazing. No, the way, what happened? And then my son, that my manager, he's around her summer. I watched him grow up and he was a surfer and, you know, like a gang member for a while, almost. You know, no, I let I let the kids like me, like me. Let them find their own way, you know, let him try everything that way. That way. They're not curious, you know, they're or they don't get. It's true. They always say that the preachers daughter is always the biggest slot. Right, yeah, exactly. It's the truth. Exactly, exactly. There's a lot of hypocritical stuff going on in these in these straight lights. Right, but but for kids. But like my youngest son, Joe Brown, he's a musician now, but when he was a little punk kid, you know, skateboarding in that he started smoking cigarettes because everybody else is smoking. Now. That was one rule I had him in my house. I said no tobacco, you'll kill you and don't get a tobacco habit. I had one one time. quit it. My wife did a little bit, but she's she's no longer.

And so I found it. I walked into a store. I had an instinct, you know. I walked into the skateboards shop and that there he is with a cigarette and his mouth. So I worked over that a singer. I took the cigarette out of his mouth, stabbed to put it out. ha ha ha. Nothing said. But you know the funny thing he did that. You know, their kids are trying everything. He got his tongue pierced. I did that before. It was a cool thing to do. I did it and I got in a lot of trouble. Yeah, yeah, that's what that's it makes I did. He got pers and so he told his mother and his mother and not like me, by the way, you're going to take a real take. You're going to get rid of that right now, take him to the dog, getting rid of it right now. And this is what he said. Come on, why can't I have a tongue like I have a oh my God, because it was so swollen. Right, Oh my God, I remember that. Don't go anywhere, because after the break we start a bomb coming, and that was the bomb company that ended up putting me in jail. I know I read about but but that was thinking this was so good. It's all learning. Well, you know, Tommy, I don't know if you're aware of this. I have a cannabis line called who saw that I've had from years, which is heard. We have someone I calm common Ryan Rivera, which has going down and I know that. You know he was doing some of your so we I was working with Ryan as well and I would always say, Oh wow, I can't wait to me time each on Wednesday, you know. But I have woos and for me, who saw was a wellness kind of a concept and for me I look at it like I believe in it so audamantly, but I would like to one day pass that down to my son and and give him the ropes to this industry, because not only do I believe in it as a medicine, it's a money maker. You know. So, yeah, is that? Was that your sort of concept when you went into business with your son or just well again, you know, I'm woman driven. You know, my wife makes all those decisions and she was the one that decided that. You know, we had people coming to the gay you know, because when she became a comedian with me, we would sell tshirts and I would before she joined. I would sell tshirts from the club in which she joined up. You know, we got to have our own t shirts. And then the people start being bringing bonds, you know, child buzz it they made. Yeah, and in my way to know, we've got to have her own bunk company. So my wife actually encouraged our son. At the time he was, I don't know, eighteens something that in that school. He needed a job. So he ended up putting me in jail. I know, I'm read about but but that particulous. It's all learning and the and so now we got the bums. We're selling the buns again on the other art pieces and they're they're worth you know, they start off at like twozero a piece and they're going up, you know, not down. So it's so shamed. Million Dollar bomb right, yeah, yeah, that's right. We're at we're making it. I'll make it with you. No, you know you want to get your I love that fact, you know, of having your son in it. But the best, like a tell everybody in this business, study, learn, you know right, find out what that plant does, find exactly where it's from, find out everything you can find out about it and then, and then respect it.

Yeah, he does not look eighty three years old. I cannot be what he's about to be. Eighty three may right, like, I don't want to like get I think eighty three, but like, oh my God, and he's so funny and he's so chill and he's so high hum both Y. I did not expect that. Like, I mean I didn't like did it. It's like, I don't know. I mean I respect them. A lot of questions about like being a parent and, you know, using cannabis while you're a parent and like how was it for like your your kids, like friends at school? Like did they say anything? And it's sort of just went a different direction. But it was like still, it was Tommy Chum. He couldn't just said, you know, apples and bananas. I'm sorry, that's the song I'm singing every day with the lesson. But he could have said apples and bananas and it would have been like like the holy hole, like I have been perfect. Yeah, it was just, it was, it was everything was amazing. I was really great. What do you think right now, like after hearing this guy who's like almost eighty three, you know, uses weed on the regular. I he's sitting here healthy, just did all these you know, dancing with the stars, all this stuff, I just I think I think what got me the most was just the just getting through cancer twice. Yeah, and and and really and I really think that that kind of bonded you guys, because it really has helped out of your audio me and and there are ray and stuff, and so I feel like that was kind of fascinating. Yeah, honestly, but just it, just everything about him. I love his relationship with his wife and yeah, really cool person. And what was his neck? I was just say, I don't know, what was that? On his chicken bone or something that like a McDonald's chicken mcnugget, but then those don't come with bones. Was it like a bone, like the bone of like a hot wing? Like a hot wing, you know what it is like? He was talking. I put my phone at under the table and I was googling pictures of him and he's wearing this this chicken bone and a lot of pictures, and so I zoomed in on the chicken bone and it's not a chicken bone. Oh so that it's like some sort of a rock, I think. Or would that would make more a little bit more sense. Maybe it's, I could dried up. What do you guys call those? Like an ounce of you look at king a cow, dried up, what like that? They like the what do you call it? The Bud? A body, a weed, bud, a who a but a weed, like a butt of weed, like a...

...pipe, but it's like the bud dried and he's wearing it all the time. Like what you smoke your weed like a fake, fake flower, but bud. God bless you, and native God bless you. God bless you so many ways. You are my friend. As much weat as I smoke. Who still don't know the words. I don't know that. It's okay, it's okay. I'm learning what a held out a little bit.
