Last year activist and comedian Tommy Chong announced that he was battling prostate cancer – he was diagnosed eight years after feeling initial symptoms. Now, with great joy (and it puts a big smile on our face too), Tommy Chong has announced that he’s entirely cancer-free.
“I brought my PSA numbers down drastically and eliminated the cancer threat… That’s right, I kicked cancer’s ass! So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements. I’m due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I’ve felt in years”, stated Chong in a recent announcement.
Chong, during his battle, avoided narcotic and experimental treatments in exchange for a change in his diet, supplements and hash oil.
“With the diet, the supplements and the hash oil, plus a session with a world-renowned healer, Adam Dreamhealer, I’m cancer-free,” he wrote.
“And now for a celebration joint of the finest Kush.”
[Update 8/1/2016 (originally published 5/7/2013): Chong tells us that although his cancer returned in 2015, he once again fought it off and is now feeling better than ever. He continues to advocate for cannabis law reform, and is still touring with Cheech Marin.]
