Tommy Chong is cancer-free

“Comedian and stoner icon TOMMY CHONG is celebrating after he was declared cancer-free.

 “Chong has now told fans he has overcome the cancer, and opened up about how he treated the condition.

In a blog post on CelebStoner.com, he writes, “After I came out with the news last June that a cancer doctor told me I had prostrate cancer and suggested a high frequency treatment that is not approved in America and could only be done in Mexico at the cost of $25,000, I immediately looked at alternatives. I contacted my nephew in Vancouver, who was about to become a doctor, and he suggested I meet with a Dr. McKinnon in Victoria, BC (British Columbia).

“That doctor changed my diet and put me on supplements, and within a year I brought my PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) numbers down drastically and eliminated the cancer threat. I also treated the condition with hemp oil (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. That’s right, I kicked cancer’s a**! 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.””

“Earlier this week Tommy Chong posted on CelebStoner that he had “kicked cancer’s a**!”

“So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements,” wrote Chong.

Chong is crediting his recovery with the somewhat unconventional methods of his Canadian doctor, who treated his cancer with “hash oil” and encouraged him to change his diet. He also said a number of sessions with Adam Dreamhealer, a man whom he described as a “world-renowned healer”.

Last June, the 74-year-old comedian was diagnosed with cancer after a three-year period in which he said he had been drug free.

Chong said he is 99 percent free of the disease.

“I’m due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I’ve felt in years,” he wrote in his post.

Chong, who revealed in June 2012, he was using cannabis to treat his cancer, said in an interview with CNN, that legalizing marijuana “means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”

The actor is best known as being part of the stoner-comedy duo “Cheech and Chong” with Richard “Cheech” Marin.”

Comedian Tommy Chong fighting prostate cancer – CNN

“(CNN) — Tommy Chong, one-half of the marijuana-loving “Cheech and Chong” comedy duo, is battling prostate cancer, he announced Saturday on CNN.

Having first noticed symptoms about eight years ago while incarcerated for selling drug paraphernalia, Chong said he was diagnosed “about a month ago.” He revealed his condition in an interview about his support for decriminalizing marijuana use and sales.

“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon. “So (legalizing marijuana) means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”

Chong described the cancer “as a slow stage one (that I’ve) had for a long time.” He said that he was drug free for about three years, during which time he began having prostate-related problems. 

“So I know it had nothing to do with cannabis,” he said. “Cannabis is a cure.”

He and his on-screen partner Cheech Marin recorded a series of hot-selling comedy albums in the early 1970s, before hitting the big screen in 1978 with “Up in Smoke.” It was the first of several “Cheech and Chong” films chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the stoner pair. The two continue to tour as a comedic act, with shows scheduled for later this month and the fall, according to their official website.

Besides the “Cheech and Chong” films, Chong has appeared in several TV series, such as “That 70’s Show.” He’s authored several books including “The I Chong: Meditations from the Joint” about his “family business” specializing in handmade bongs, arrest and nine months in federal prison, according to his and Marin’s website.

Chong, 74, explained to CNN that he doesn’t smoke marijuana, which he said he’d quit about a year ago “for health reasons,” to treat his prostate cancer. Rather, he said the ingests the hemp oil “at night, so I won’t be woozy all day.”

“I’m taking it as a medicine,” he said.”

Tommy Chong: Marijuana Legalization Boosts Economy, Weed Cures Prostate Cancer, According To Cheech’s Friend – But How? [REPORT]

“Tommy Chong and his partner Richard “Cheech” Marin have built an entire career out of stoner comedy and marijuana-centric counterculture jokes, but now Tommy Chong is getting a little more serious about marijuana legalization and politics than he ever did before in Cheech & Chong’s 42-year entertainment career.”

“Tommy Chong, 74, is a public advocate for the legalization of marijuana. He believes legalizing the drug on a federal level would bring about “numerous benefits,” including giving a lift to the U.S. economy – if the plant were to be taxed, of course.

In addition to the benefits to the economy, Tommy Chong believes in potential medical uses – medical uses that have been proven to the point where several states have legalized the drug. Almost 20 states have passed laws supporting the legalization of medical marijuana (with 12 states pending legislation!) Colorado and Washington have now totally legalized it.
 

Tommy Chong has personal ties to the medical usage of marijuana. Last June, Chong announced that he was suffering with stage one prostate cancer. However, he decided to forego traditional medicine and instead decided to overhaul his diet and lifestyle.

And now, Tommy Chong is cancer-free.”

“How is Tommy Chong treating prostate cancer? With marijuana, of course. The serially stoned actor says he’s taking hemp oil and smoking weed to treat the illness, with which he was diagnosed a month ago. Chong boasts that his illness only emerged during a three-year drug-free period, preemptively countering detractors who may claim marijuana might have caused his problems. “So I know it had nothing to do with cannabis,” he said. “Cannabis is a cure.” It’s an interesting theory, but unless you want your health going up in smoke, we suggest he put the lighter down and contact a real doctor.” 6/10/2012

Medical Cannabis Treatment for Cancer and HIV/AIDS ?

“Benefits of Medical Cannabis”

medical marijuana

“Today, there are at least 17 states, including the District of Colombia, where cannabis is legal. Ohio, South Carolina, Colorado, New Jersey, California, and Michigan are just a few states that garnered strong support in the legalization of  medical cannabis. In Illinois, a bill legalizing the use of  cannabis needed the signature of Gov Pat Quinn. The legislation was approved by House and Senate, permitting doctors to prescribe cannabis for cancer and patients with HIV/AIDS and other diseases…

There is now quantifiable evidence that cannabis is beneficial in treating many disorders…

Moreover, the Medical Cannabis Research and the University of California found out that cannabis can treat HIV/AIDS and multiple sclerosis symptoms. It can even benefit cancer patients to mitigate the unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy or as an alternative treatment for cervical cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, brain cancer, and leukemia.”

Cannabis linked to ‘prostate cancer cure’

“Cannabis helps combat prostate cancer, scientists revealed yesterday.

But patients were warned not to use the drug even though active chemicals halted the spread of the disease.

Cannabis also helped reduce the size of tumours when tested on mice, according to researchers at Spain’s University of Alcala.

But Cancer Research UK’s Dr Lesley Walker said: “This opens a new avenue to explore potential drug targets but it is at a very early stage – it absolutely isn’t the case that men might be able to fight prostate cancer by smoking cannabis.

“Research suggests that prostate cancer cells might stop growing if they are treated with chemicals found in cannabis but more work needs to be done to explore the potential of these cannabinoids in treatment.”

Prostate cancer affects more than 35,000 UK men each year and kills around 10,000.”

Cannabis blunts prostate cancer threat: study – ABC News

“Chemicals in cannabis have been found to stop prostate cancer cells from growing in the laboratory, suggesting marijuana-based medicines could one day help fight the disease, scientists said.

After working initially with human cancer cell lines, Ines Diaz-Laviada and colleagues from the University of Alcala in Madrid also tested one compound on mice and discovered it produced a significant reduction in tumour growth.

Their research, published in the British Journal of Cancer, underlines the growing interest in the medical use of active chemicals called cannabinoids, which are found in marijuana.”
