Chong teamed up with Cheech Marin to form the dynamic comedy duo Cheech & Chong. Together, they were nominated twice for Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Album.

Chong pled to distributing bongs and water pipes online and was sentenced to nine months in prison. He has two children from his first marriage, and three biological children from his second union to Shelby Fiddis. The couple also adopted their fourth child. Chong became a naturalized U.S. citizen during the 1980s, is an active marijuana supporter and has battled prostate cancer.
