Here's some news that will add a delightful lift to your Monday: There's a Tommy Chong meet-and-greet contest coming to Denver. Yes, you can hang with the legend himself when he comes to town for the official release of his Chong's Choice cannabis line, selling now exclusively at these eight dispensaries.
Not only will you get to meet him, but the winner of the contest has been promised his or her very own toking session with Chong. You'll be smoking the Chong's Choice line, which is grown by Verde Natural.
While the exact date for the October smoke sesh is still up in the air, the contest sign-up page will run until September 23. You can only enter once; find the contest and sign-up information at chongschoicecolorado.com.
Here's what you need to know:
• Fans of Chong are invited to enter their details (e-mail, age, address) for a chance to win a VIP experience with Chong when he's in town this October (date is still TBD).
• The contest will end on 9/23/16.
• The VIP experience will include a smoke sesh with Tommy Chong.
• No purchase is necessary.
• You'll notice that it asks you to list which dispensary you went to and which product you bought. At this point, select the dispensary you'd like to visit (if you have not already) and which product you'd like to buy (if you haven't already).
• One winner from each dispensary will be randomly selected (so it's important to select at least one dispensary)
• You can enter one time only. Repeat entries will be disqualified.
