The Cheech You Don’t Know

Marin, whose father worked as an LAPD patrolman, begins his tale in the Canadian Rockies. It’s 1968, and he’s a 22-year-old Vietnam War resister dodging the draft — a native of South Central L.A. straight out of San Fernando Valley State College (now Cal State Northridge), hunting and fishing and chopping wood to survive. Later, Marin meets a guy trying to start an improvisational theater company in a Vancouver topless bar. That was Tommy Chong and the rest, as they say, is history.
