Tommy Chong’s Cancer Update Is Encouraging

Tommy Chong sent out the following tweets recently, which are very encouraging:

“Got my blood test results back…the hemp oil is working! PSA down to 2…..yes!”

“Did I mention I am 99% cancer free? Thanks to my “medication”. Hemp oil works but you have to believe…..I believe….tc”

Go get ‘em Tommy! Your fans and supporters have been rooting for you and will continue to do so! Below is Tommy Chong’s interview on CNN in which he originally announced he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer:

    Em…… he is getting conventional therapy anyway but why waste the story with facts.

    Mr. Chong, It generally takes many years or decades for the first cancer clone cell to divide enough times to become a detectable tumor. Thus it is very unlikely that a year or two off of MJ, or living in a toxic area, is what got your cancer going. Yet it is possible this period allowed it to proliferate somewhat faster. I wish you well in your recovery.
    PS: I literally peed my pants as a 13 year-old listening to you and your partner’s 8-Track cassettes (~40 years ago). Either my bladder control has improved since then, or comedians just aren’t as funny.

    Main stream Medical Mafia do not want you to know it is multiple infections that share their genes in prion synergy that is the cause of cancers….
    Because they gave it to us in vaccines and now being carried in our vectors of disease to everyone.
    Even the 1 in 29 suffering lies of Autism.

    When the TRUTH is —the next infectious antigen introduced into the masses that are already sick could be man as we know it’s last. 35yrs. of lying about the real AIDS is too hard to stomach.

    As the founder of an all-volunteer cancer nonprofit whose focus has been natural cancer strategies, this is just great to see. We KNOW, and I know personally, that many things really work in the natural world. The firs thing everyone should do is eat MORE fruits and vegetables while walking away from soda, chips, deep-fried or sugary foods. Lots more to learn. Annie Appleseed Project.

    I spent five years in the federal system doing time for growing. I lived in the very same dorm unit and floor at Taft as Tommy, but I transferred to a different prison and was out of the system before he went down for nine months. Jimmy Ray was my bunkie for the 17 months I spent there, and he was probably still there when Tommy was, finishing off his 24-year sentence.

    There are a lot of people needing accurate information about prostate cancer treatment. Tommy could do a lot better than to just make vague statements about his treatment. On his podcast of 1/30/13 he said his PSA was <2, but his Gleason score was a 6. I'd like to know what his PSA and Gleason scores were before he started taking RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), and I can't find that anywhere. As far as I can tell, a Gleason score of 6 indicates moderately aggressive cancer–not 99% cancer free.

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but activists are just setting themselves up to be dismissed as very fuzzy thinking stoners if they don't show a little more interest and attention to the science. And the other side will use this to ridicule and reject medical claims, sowing confusion, and talking people out of MMJ treatment and into conventional chemo. If Tommy's going to hold himself up as an example on this very serious issue, he should do his best to be a great example, not a lame stoner who every once in a while throws out very poorly substantiated numbers.

    So let's get serious Tommy. Start a blog or hook up officially with someone else's, and post your prostate statistics and treatment regimen. Keep it updated, and do some real good for these suffering people who need as many facts as they can get a hold of.

    What is needed is a well organized mock trial, on the efficacy of marijuana prohibition, Bring to a courtroom all the experts both pro, and con film it as a documentary, bring to the attention of the world the real costs”human and monetary”. of these assinine Marijuana laws, it is 100 times worse than the alcohol prohibition. The prohibition is the only problem, with Marijuana, the plant itself is a godsend, Ray Charles and steavie Wonder can see that. Can the American people that believe otherwise be that stupid, or that lazy to not do some basic but real investgation
