Tommy Chong, famous member of the "Cheech and Chong" comedy duo and legend in the marijuana community, visited Pueblo on Saturday to celebrate the beginning of retail pot sales in Colorado, according to our news partners at KOAA.

Chong visited Marisol Therapeutics, one of Pueblo's pot stores, and was greeted by hundreds of fans who braved the cold and snow for a chance to meet him.
