Well, Cheech did. In 1985 Marin called it quits on the drug humor tip, leaving his old buddy Chong high and dry. Cheech pursued a career in legit films, making notable inroads in the world of animated voices, while Chong played a version of his old self on That ΄70s Show and produced a line of smoking paraphernalia (Chongs Bongs, anyone?), for which he got arrested, went to prison, and wrote an awesome book, The I-Chong. And now, a little over a quarter century since their breakup, the weed fiends are back to blaze a new comedy trail. Yup, the Cheech & Chong Light Up America Tour is touching down tonight at the Fillmore Miami Beach (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Will they still make you laugh till your sides ache and tears run down your face? That totally depends on how high you are, dude. Doors open at 6 p.m., show starts at 7. Tickets cost $40 to $60, and theyre selling out faster than dime bags from that dude on the corner. Hurry up and visit www.livenation.com, or holla at your local scalper.
