Winner: Cheech Marin The druggie duo split in 1985, and as with many breakups, the reasons why change depending on who's doing the telling. Whatever the cause, Marin set aside the pipe to act, first in comedies and then more often in family-friendly fare. Though he's now a fixture on movie screens, television audiences were initially surprised to see Marin in a semi-serious role for the 1996-2001 series "Nash Bridges," and then again as a recurring guest on "Judging Amy." Chong, meanwhile, dabbled in acting as well but stayed true to his love of the bud, which eventually led to nine months in federal prison. The duo put aside their differences in 2008 and revived their touring comedy show.
