Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) –- Comedian Tommy Chong discusses the legalization of Marijuana in Colorado with Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Long before the first-ever pop shop opened its doors.

Tommy chong, of the famous duo, cheech and chong, joins us now.

Welcome to "street smart." thank you for having me.

Your reaction to what is unfolding on the streets of denver?

Unbelievable, like a dream come true.

My prayers have been answered.

What took so long?

You know, actually, it worked in our favor.

We had time -- all the prohibition gave us time to perfect the plant to its present form.

Now it is ready.

The universe said -- ok, now it is time to legalize it.

Will it be a big business opportunity?

You know it.

It is not going to affect the black market, either.

It is a win-win for everybody.

I think that is an interesting theory.

I would argue that if you see more and more states legalizing it for recreational purposes, it might have the effect of driving prices down.
