Tommy Chong is Battling Prostate Cancer

Tommy Chong, who turned 74 last month, told CNN today he is battling prostate cancer. Chong says he first noticed symptoms when he was incarcerated eight years ago for conspiracy to distribute drug paraphernalia. He was officially diagnosed approximately one month ago. It's a slow stage cancer and he's treating it with hemp oil. He stopped smoking pot one year ago and instead takes hemp oil before bed to treat the cancer. He didn't say if he's also treating it with Western medicine. Keep in mind that this was an interview with CNN's Don Lemon about legalization.

Sad to hear this. Cannabis Nation Radio did an interview with a BioChemist from the Cancer industry, who had advanced stage prostate cancer which he successfully treated with concentrated cannabis oil only. The interview is here.
