Pot activist's role in 'Wolf of Wall Street' book Published: February 21, 2014

When the notorious “Wolf of Wall Street” stockbroker Jordan Belfort went to prison for fraud, he at first wasted away his days playing tennis and paying other inmates to do his chores.

But in a strange twist of fate, it was famed marijuana activist and comedian Tommy Chong who inspired Belfort to write his memoirs as part of his restitution, according to Yahoo News.

“I kind of embarrassed him into writing,” Chong said while taping an interview with fellow comedian Doug Benson on Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles.
