Tommy Chong Says He's 'Cancer-Free'
The “Cheech and Chong” comedian credits his Canadian doctor and marijuana use with beating the disease.
Tommy Chong has beaten prostate cancer, the comedian announced in a post on CelebStoner earlier this week.
He credited his care under a doctor in Victoria, BC, who Chong said changed his diet and gave him supplements. Chong said he treated his cancer with “hash oil” and a session with healer Adam Dreamhealer.
“That's right, I kicked cancer's ass!” Chong wrote. “So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements. I'm due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I've felt in years. And now for a celebration joint of the finest Kush...”
In June 2012, Chong revealed he had cancer, and said he was using cannabis to treat it. In an interview with CNN, he said legalizing marijuana “means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
Chong rose to fame in the early 1970s with Richard “Cheech” Marin as the stoner-comedy duo Cheech and Chong. From 1971-85 the pair released eight albums, winning the comedy recording grammy for 1973’s Los Cochinos. Three of their albums hit the top 10. In addition to their recordings, Cheech and Chong co-wrote and starred in eight films, including their 1978 debut, Up in Smoke.
