Pot icon Tommy Chong had some choice words for U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an appearance with Cheech Marin on the debut episode Cold Cuts with Al Roker. Cheech and Chong were guests on the new online show to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the comedy duo’s landmark film Up in Smoke.

While the trio chats and makes sandwiches, the conversation turns to the legalization of marijuana.

“It’s a medicine,” Chong says. “It was a medicine 5,000 years ago in China. And now it’s back being a medicine again.”

“As weed becomes closer to being totally legal, we get more popular,” Cheech says.

After mentioning some benefits of legal pot, Cheech beseeches Sessions to join the movement.

“It can be sold and you get tax money that goes for our schools and our fire departments. Come on, bring it, Jeff!” Cheech exclaims while giving two thumbs up.

Then the show cuts to a clip of Sessions repeating his predictable prohibitionist stance.

“My best view is we don’t need to be legalizing marijuana,” Sessions says.

That’s when Chong offers his advice to the attorney general.

“My message to Jeff Sessions—instead of having smoke blowing up your ass, try inhaling it,” Chong suggests.

More Pot Talk

As can be expected, the dialogue about Sessions wasn’t the only time cannabis was the subject of the conversation between Roker and the cannabis comedy legends. The segment opens with an outtake in which Roker asks if weed dictates their diet.

“Is all food munchies to you guys, given your state?” Roker asks.

“I’m a vegetarian, but when I get high, I’ll eat meat,” Chong replies.

Which, when you’re Tommy Chong, doesn’t leave a lot of time for an exclusively plant-based diet.

Chong also askes Roker about his habits.

“I got to ask you a question. Do you smoke weed? Because I brought you a present,” Chong says as he hands Roker what appears to be a preroll tube.

“Oh, hello! Well!” Roker cries. “My wife wants to smoke this. Thank you very much.”

Roker also inquires about the longevity of the Cheech and Chong comedy act.

“Does it seem like it’s been 40 years to you guys?” Roker asks.

“It seems more like a hundred,” Cheech quips in reply.

New Show Has Sandwich Theme

Cold Cuts with Al Roker, “where we pile on the questions and we pile on the meats” is a new online segment from NBC’s Today. In it, Roker and his guests make sandwiches and enjoy conversation “as we bring you the inside story of the favorite sandwiches of your favorite people,” according to the opening.

So, what kind of sandwiches do Cheech and Chong make?

Cheech’s “Jambon et Fromage” is ham, Swiss cheese, tomato, onion, mustard, mayo, and Russian dressing on a baguette.

Chong’s “Prison Special” comes with pulled chicken, ham, Swiss cheese, tomato, onion, avocado, dill pickle spears, mustard, mayo, and Sriracha, also on a baguette.

You can watch Cold Cuts with Al Roker on the Today show YouTube channel. A new episode debuts every other Wednesday morning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern.
