STILL SMOKIN’ – featuring CHEECH MARIN (Episode 18)
STILL SMOKIN’ – featuring counterculture entertainment icon CHEECH MARIN (Episode 18). In our latest episode of Cannthropology, host Bobby Black Zooms in with cannabis comedy legend Cheech Marin of Cheech & Chong fame to discuss his amazing career, his relationship with Tommy, his signature cannabis brands, and his feelings about dabbing, as well as the grand opening of his new Chicano art museum in California.
Richard “Cheech” Marin and Thomas Chong rose to stardom in the ’70s and early ’80s with a string of gold and Grammy-winning comedy albums, followed by a series of hilarious films featuring laughable yet lovable exaggerations of stoner stereotypes. As a solo artist, Marin has appeared in dozens of films and television shows, as well as countless cameos and voiceover roles (including several Disney characters). But Cheech isn’t just a cannabis and comedy icon, he’s also an icon in the Mexican-American community—promoting the culture and massing one of the world’s most impressive collections of Latino art.
The World of Cannabis Museum Project presents Cannthropology—the potcast that explores the history of cannabis culture one artifact and interview at a time. Hosted by World of Cannabis executive director and marijuana media icon Bobby Black. In each episode, Bobby chooses a different item(s) from the museum’s collection of around 500 rare antiques, artifacts, and artworks, and welcomes a different guest to help him explore the item’s significance and place in cannabis history.

The World of Cannabis Museum will showcase the influence of cannabis in art, music, film, news, medicine, and politics throughout the past century. From the early days of prohibition and “reefer madness,” to its modern-day mainstream momentum and everything in between: from the legendary growers and breeders who created and propagated all of the iconic strains, to the smugglers who distributed them across the globe; from the activists who have fought for legalization, to the celebrities who have embraced it; from America’s headshops to Amsterdam’s coffee shops; from the counterculture of the 1960s, the excesses of the ’70s, and the Drug War hysteria of the ’80s, to the rise of medical marijuana in the ’90s and the march toward legalization and mainstream acceptance in the new millennium—all of this and more we plan to explore in this unprecedented exhibition. Coming soon!
