UC San Diego student Daniel Chong–no relation to Tommy–was just trying to celebrate 4/20 with his bros when the DEA raided the house he was partying in. Things got exponentially worse for Chong after that when he was accidentally left in a DEA holding cell for five days without food, water, or access to a toilet. (Curiously though, there happened to be some meth in the cell, which Chong took, presumably out of desperation and/or a desire to make Neil Patrick Harris magically appear on a unicorn bearing a platter of White Castle burgers.) The 23 year-old had to drink his own urine to survive, and spent five days in the hospital after he was discovered, on the verge of kidney failure.
But that was nothing, I’m guessing, compared to what Chong’s Hardass Asian Mother did to him next, when she found out her son was “doing the drug.”

somewhere everywhere today, so you don’t want to read any more AMAZING LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY CRAZY SEXY COOL blog posts, do you? No, you want to get baked, put on the Discovery Channel, get more baked, eat some potato snacks, eat some red and green gummi bears (leaving the yellow and orange ones for when frenemies come over), get more baked, smoke a dozen couple cigarettes, coat your burning throat with a handful of Ricolas, find a taco truck, decide that the outside world is a little too scary at the moment, go back home, lay down in the middle of the living room on a fluffy rug, put on some old records–I’m partial to 70′s country, like Emmylou or Linda Ronstadt–get more baked, and pass out as the last light of the day creeps through the blinds, right?

“Chong has an unabashed love of marijuana. He used to say ‘I get high constantly! If you smoke pot, eat well and work out, I guarantee you’ll live forever.’”
Good theory! We hope you do.
