The Cheech and Chong exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum celebrates 40 years of weed counterculture


LOS ANGELES (Circa) -- Comedic duo Cheech and Chong now have their own exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.

"Cheech and Chong Still Rollin" celebrates 40 years since the premiere of "Up In Smoke," the cult stoner classic film starring Richard "Cheech" Marin and Tommy Chong. And fans are excited.

"For one, they're hilarious," said Xochitl Cruz, who was at the opening day (4/20). "They're outgoing. They're just down to earth."

The exhibit features memorabilia from the movie, like a jacket made from hemp rolling paper, a call sheet and the original screenplay, which was titled "The Adventures of Pedro and Man." Guests can also expect to receive a flyer which doubles as a rolling tray.

The 1978 movie, directed by record producer Lou Adler, tells the story of two stoner friends' road trip adventures on a van made of hemp.

"It's always a movie that you can pull out. It's a classic," Cruz said.

The duo's musical career is also part of the exhibit, with their GRAMMY-winning comedic album on display.

"They were on the radio in Detroit," said Lynn Ring, who listened to Cheech and Chong growing up. "We heard them on the radio. My brother had the albums, and we’d listen to the albums and just crack up. We were pretty young, so we weren’t smoking with them.”

The duo is credited with helping destigmatize pot and launching the stoner film genre.

Cheech and Chong Still Rollin is on display until spring 2019.
