Actor, activist and comedian Tommy Chong has annouced he has stage one cancer. He plans to of course treat his condition with cannabis.
Star of the famous comedy group Cheech & Chong, 74-year-old Tommy Chong has fought for marijuana rights for decades. Now the comedian sadly has one more reason to continue fighting for the legalization of cannabis, he has been diagnosed with stage one prostate cancer.
"I've got prostate cancer, and I'm treating it with hemp oil, and with cannabis. So legalizing marijuana means more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested," he said.
In an interview with CNN Chong said he will be ingesting the cannabis oil because he no longer smokes marijuana. He also added he will be using it at night so he wouldn't be "Woozy" during the day.
During the three years he was of "Drugs", Chong began noticing health problems."I knew it had nothing to do with cannabis. Cannabis is a cure."
