Almost 50 years after their first album together, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong are still in business together, and now in the weed dispensary business!
Cheech & Chong have announced plans to enter into a dispensary license with Five Point Holdings Inc. to develop a five state dispensary chain. Five Point Holdings Inc. is a diversified cannabis branding company with decades of dispensary retail, branding, and media experience is pleased to announce its licensing agreement (the “Agreement”) with Cheech & Chong’s management company to license the Cheech & Chong Brand to initially open dispensaries in California, Nevada, Arizona, Illinois and Washington. The license will allow the company to develop experiential cannabis dispensaries utilizing the Cheech & Chong brand name.
“There are a handful of names and brands recognized by everyone around the world and the Cheech and Chong brand is one of them.” says Paris Chong, Director at Five Point Holdings and manager of his father Tommy Chong. As part of this licensing agreement, the dispensaries will feature cannabis products from both Tommy Chong’s Cannabis and Cheech’s Stash brands.
Tommy Chong states, “Cheech and I have waited patiently to find the right combination of talent and the right team to trust with the Cheech and Chong properties. We both pursued our own individual projects knowing if the right opportunity came along we would do something with our Cheech and Chong brand and with Five Point Holdings Inc. we have the winning combination.”
Cheech Marin said, “The Cheech and Chong movies, songs and comedy bits have helped shape and mold the weed culture as we know it today. Now we’re bringing that trusted, funny and familiar cannabis comedy experience into the store environment.”
