Tommy Chong Is Battling Rectal Cancer - Read His Statements

Tommy Chong has revealed that he is battling rectal cancer and currently undergoing treatment.

“I’ve had some medical issues lately,” the 77-year-old legendary comedian told Us Weekly. “I got diagnosed with rectal cancer.”

“I’m using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before,” Tommy added. “I’m in treatment now. I’ve been — just the case either way, 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.”
