Actor Tommy Chong, of the Cheech and Chong movies, has been diagnosed with rectal cancer.
“I’m in treatment now,” stated Chong, and went on to say he’s smoking more marijuana now than ever. “Either I get healed, or I don’t. But either way, I’m going to make sure I get a little edge off or put up.”
Chong rose to stardom in the 70’s and 80’s through his Cheech and Chong films and has been an advocate for marijuana legalization for decades.
Chong was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012 and was public about using marijuana as a way to treat the cancer.
