LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a successful stint on "Dancing with the Stars", legendary cannabis activist, pop culture icon, and Grammy award-winning comedian Tommy Chong reveals he is back to his roots as a pioneer in the cannabis industry with the announcement of the launch of Tommy Chong's Smoke Swipe, the breakthrough product designed to swipe away the smell of cannabis and tobacco odor on clothing.
Chong teamed up with Reviver Clothing Swipes to develop a product that keeps usage discreet, a need that is more relevant than ever with the growing legalization of both recreational and medicinal marijuana.
"While our culture is rapidly accepting cannabis consumption as a way of life, it's fair to acknowledge that smelling like cannabis in many public settings may not be cool," admits Chong. "I could have used my Tommy Chong's Smoke Swipe 10 years ago to save me from a lot of headache," he jokes. "Now, those who partake in it can keep it to themselves."
"We are honored to collaborate with the legendary Tommy Chong," says Ben Kusin, CEO and Founder of Reviver. "With his input, we were able to develop the ideal product that's long overdue for cannabis consumers."
The Swipes are portable, reusable, and highly effective for those wanting to keep cannabis usage a private occasion. The customer simply places a swipe on their fingers, rubs the applicator across clothing to neutralize odors, and replaces it into its re-sealable package. No more awkward stares. No more worries.
Tommy Chong's Smoke Swipe is available for $10.99 per 3-pack at www.chongswipes.com and will be landing in head shops and dispensaries nationwide in the coming months.

He continues to be an outspoken advocate for cannabis, which he credits for supporting his healthy and active lifestyle.
