Marijuana-loving comedian Tommy Chong is battling prostate cancer, and treating it with — what else? — weed.
Chong, one half of the Cheech and Chong comedy act, was diagnosed about a month ago.
“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” he said Saturday in an interview on CNN.
Chong, 74, said he began having prostate-related problems during a three-year period when he was drug free.
“So I know it had nothing to do with cannabis,” Chong said. “Cannabis is a cure.”
