(INTELLIHUB) — Tommy Chong appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast last Thursday where he admitted to the former Fear Factor host that he got high on cannabis edibles the night before the interview and had an epiphany that art is going to save the world.

The infamous actor who starred in the Cheech & Chong movie series explained to Rogan how he believes the pyramids in Egypt are a great work of art and that making such works of art creates job opportunities and employment.

“…art is going to save the world,” Chong explained. “… what happens when you have big huge art pieces like that [the pyramids] you create employment and it’s not war.”

You’re not fighting,” he said. “You’re creating.”
