‘Cheech & Chong’ actor Tommy Chong has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. In fact the comedian has stage one. Chong did confirm his health crises during a Saturday Night, June 9, 2012 interview along with Cnn, this news was given to him just last month May 2012.
“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis… I’m taking it as a medicine.”
The comic told Cnn newsman Don Lemon his diagnosis has made him even more determined to decriminalize weed.
“It means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
At this time it is not known if his plans for a Cheech & Chong comedy tour, scheduled for later this year 2012, will be canceled.
