Cheech and Chong Just Challenged Jeff Sessions to Stop Blowing Smoke Up His Ass

Cheech and Chong were talking with Roker for Roker’s new online show Cold Cuts, in which he interviews celebrities while making deluxe sandwiches. Sure. Chong called his sandwich the Prison Special. Munchies jokes were made. And we can safely assume that Roker is not a weed smoker himself. Maybe if it’s legalized…
