It’s no surprise that celebrity stoner Tommy Chong is a staunch supporter of Stone Age candidate Bernie Sanders, but according to Chong, his invitation to introduce Sanders at his rally in East Los Angeles Monday appeared and then quickly disappeared in a puff of smoke.

Bernie Sanders and Tommy Chong together in East L.A.? That does sound like the perfect combination, especially considering this tweet from last week that almost surely should place Chong in the running for a cabinet position in the Sanders administration.

Unfortunately, something suddenly came up.

That’s a downer.

Harsh:

It sounds like Chong actually had an inspirational message to deliver to the crowd, too, but at least Twitter can benefit.
