Tommy Chong is throwing his support behind a BC politician and has even put out a YouTube video encouraging people to join the NDP in order to vote for him as the party's leader.
If you don't know about the candidate Tommy is supporting, here's a fact I bet you couldn't guess... he's a marijuana activist! Of course he is! There's no way the guy with the 'Free Marc Emery' poster and pot leaf wallpaper wouldn't support a weed enthusiast.
In fact, Dana Larsen announced his candidacy for this election at a medical cannabis dispensary. You wouldn't see John A. Macdonald doing that. He'd probably be too busy getting drunk.
