Legendary Comedian Tommy Chong Has Been Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer
I was sad to read earlier this morning that Tommy Chong is battling prostate cancer. Tommy Chong told CNN that he was diagnosed ‘about a month ago.’
“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” Chong told CNN‘s Don Lemon. “So (legalizing marijuana) means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
Chong, 74, explained to CNN that he doesn’t smoke marijuana, which he said he’d quit about a year ago “for health reasons,” to treat his prostate cancer. Rather, he said the ingests the hemp oil “at night, so I won’t be woozy all day.”
“I’m taking it as a medicine,” he said.
Below is a Tommy Chong interview with Time magazine. I think I speak for marijuana consumers everywhere when I say GET WELL TOMMY CHONG!
