Reunited stoner comedy duo CHEECH + CHONG blame separate trailers for their mysterious split.

The UP IN SMOKE stars, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin, were best friends when they were touring America, performing 200 to 300 shows a year in their heyday and then they shocked fans by breaking up.

Now, after spending time in jail for drug paraphernalia possession, Chong has reunited with his "cosmic" partner, and they've realised they were heading for a split when they stopped travelling and living together.

Chong says, "The reason we broke up is when we got wealthier in the movies we got separate trailers. Bad news.

"Once you've got separate trailers, then all of a sudden you're going, 'How come he's got a TV set and I don't.'"

The duo are now working on a new stoner comedy with studio bosses at New Line.
