Tommy Chong Has Prostate Cancer, Treating with Hemp Oil

One-half of the German award-winning comedy duo Cheech & Chong, Tommy Chong has recently announced his battle against prostate cancer. While Chong was diagnosed about a month ago with prostate cancer, he was told by his doctor that a ‘slow stage 1′ cancer has been active for a ‘long time’. Chong, known for appearing in a number of films based on hippies and drug culture movements, and his role in ‘That 70′s Show’, revealed his diagnosis to support the decriminalization of marijuana use – as expected, Chong has been treating his cancer with the use of hemp oil.

“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” Chong said. “So [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”

Interestingly, Chong says that he started having prostate-related problem only once he was drug-free for three years. ”So I know it had nothing to do with cannabis…Cannabis is a cure,” Chong said. He did note, however, that he doesn’t smoke marijuana as a means of treating his cancer, but rather ingests hemp oil ”at night, so I won’t be woozy all day.” “I’m taking it as a medicine,” he said.

Chong, like many others, has the same question: why is marijuana illegal when the plant is powerful enough to fight one of the leading causes of death? This is a question repeatedly being raised as the evidence showcasing the relationship between marijuana and cancer continuously builds up and unfolds.

Back in 2006, one study was developed by a team of medical researchers at the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Pharmacology and Toxicology department on leukemia patients. The researchers essentially outlined that if taken daily for an extended period of time, cannabis oil actually reverses the growth of cancer and possibly leads to remission in the patient – with zero added side effects.

In another less scientific, but very powerful example of how cannabis can be utilized to fight cancer, a 3-year-old son survived brain cancer thanks to the use of marijuana oil. The 3-year-old began with intense chemotherapy, but this mainstream cancer treatment was less than effective. In a last attempt to save his son’s life, a man named  Mike Hydge pulled his son off of all medications, and begin secretly administering .3 milligrams of marijuana oil through his G-tube. Hyde attributes his son’s survival to the marijuana oil implementation, and was told that it was a miracle that his son began sitting up and laughing again.

Not only should the substance be legal to use based on each and every person’s natural born right, but the benefits of medical marijuana can be positively life-changing.
