We all know that Howdy Doody has wooden balls, man, but did you know that The Dab Lab has some highly functional and super affordable glass from the OG’s Cheech & Chong as a part of the Famous Brandz Cheech & Chong Up in Smoke collection?
That’s right – check out the variety of styles and percolation options available in bubblers, beaker bongs, mini tubes, banger hanger dab rigs, and more. Every piece will hit you right in the boo-boo and is uniquely branded and named after a character from the duo’s first feature film, “Up in Smoke” released by Paramount Pictures in 1978, and features iconic imagery from the classic adventures of the two pioneers of pot entertainment.
In 2003 the Feds launched a sting called Operation Pipe Dreams which targeted headshops, smoke shops, and glass artists nationwide. One day 100 homes and businesses were raided, and 55 indictments were handed out to suspects. 54 of the 55 indictments resulted in either a fine or a form of house arrest. The 55th was for the infamous Tommy Chong who was made to be an example, and was sentenced to 9 months in prison for his part in helping to market his son’s “Chong Glass Works” branded bongs and pipes.
15 years later - and 40 years after the release of the film - we are glad that Cheech & Chong continue to advocate for the plant and we are proud to have their glass in our store.
