74-Years-Old Tommy Chong Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer

Canada-born Tommy Chong, who is better known for his comic skills along with Cheech Marin, has been reported to be suffering from prostate cancer. He is 74-years-old. It was some eight years back that he started experiencing minor symptoms. Cancer being a slow stage one, was identified a month ago.

Further, he shared that he is taking hemp oil as a cure. "I've got prostate cancer, and I'm treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis. So (legalizing marijuana) means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested”, he said. He hasn’t taken any drug for the last three years and it was specifically during this period only, that he started having prominent symptoms of the disease.

The man has made an appearance on TV series like That 70's Show”, and has even written several books including "The I Chong: Meditations from the Joint". It was in the 1970s that he made his debut in comedy albums and since then, he has earned name and fame for himself. As of now, he along with Cheech is on a tour for a stage act.

This news has certainly shocked one and all, thereby sending warning signals that one must not overlook the symptoms and get themselves checked for even an iota of doubt.
