Actor Tommy Chong is battling prostate cancer, he revealed to CNN’s Don Lemon on Saturday night.
The 74-year-old is best known for his stoner-comedy routine alongside Cheech Marin, as the comedy duo “Cheech and Chong.”
Chong told CNN he was diagnosed about a month ago and that the cancer is currently in a “slow stage one.”
He revealed he first noticed symptoms nearly eight years ago during his nine-month sentence at
Taft Correctional Institution in California, adding that he believes the prison caused his health
to take a turn for the worse.
“The prison is built on toxic waste. I also got gout from the food there,” he told CNN.
The actor and comedian revealed his condition during an interview about his support for decriminalizing marijuana use and sales, so it’s not surprising how he plans on treating his illness.
“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 explained, adding that he was drug free for nearly three years, during which time he began having health problems. “So I know [the cancer] had nothing to do with cannabis. Cannabis is a cure.”
Chong also explained he quit smoking marijuana about a year ago, so to treat his prostate cancer he ingests hemp oil, but only “at night, so I won’t be woozy all day,” he explained.
Bill Maher filled in for Piers Morgan on his CNN program on Friday night
and got to sit down with special guest Seth MacFarlane.
Maher talked to the “Family Guy” creator about the show’s raunchiness
and the things he can get away with on an animated show.
MacFarlane admitted that there are plenty of things that go down
on “Family Guy” that would be abhorrent on “Everybody Loves Raymond.”
“You can’t joke about things like domestic violence on a live-action show,” MacFarlane said,
right before Maher put him on the spot to come up with a specific example (he gets out of it by doing a Stewie impression).
Luckily, Maher remembers one recent scene that definitely pushed the boundaries.
