Tommy Chong, star of the pot-loving comedy team, “Cheech and Chong,” is battling prostate cancer.
He revealed during an interview on CNN on Saturday that he was diagnosed “about a month ago.”
An advocate for legalizing marijuana who spent nine months in a federal prison for selling drug paraphernalia, Chong said, “I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” adding that pot now “means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
While he says he no longer smokes marijuana “for health reasons,” to treat his condition he ingests hemp oil “at night, so I won’t be woozy all day.”
