Chong sparks up K-town

Legendary stoner Tommy Chong  was the special guest at a legalization party hosted by Diablo Nutrients and Quick Grow Kelowna on Friday night. 

The celebrity toker was supposed to arrive on Wednesday, the day recreational marijuana became legal across Canada, but officials with the company told Castanet that Chong lost his passport, delaying his trip by a few days.

Chong is a writer, director, musician and cannabis rights activist who is known for his marijuana-themed Cheech and Chong comedy.

''I love the fact that Canada is the first of the whole world to take the normal and natural step," Chong said. 

"It was made illegal the day I was born. I think there was something going on in the stars," he joked. 

The evening was free to the public and featured a meet and greet with the celebrity, including giveaways, food trucks and music.
