Tommy Chong has openly admitted to heavy cannabis use due to recent health issues. In a recent interview Tommy opened up about his health issues, stating:
“I’ve had some medical issues lately,” the talented 77-year-old stated as he interviewed with US Weekly. “I got diagnosed with rectal cancer. I’m using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before. 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.”
And although, it hasn’t been revealed what type of medical cannabis he’s using, it’s been proven nearly all types, vapors, grass, edibles and even oils are excellent for cancer patients.
Did you know that they even have “Cannabis Suppositories?”
There are so many ways Medical Marijuana has started helping suffers of many diseases, not just cancer. Cannabis can help with depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, cancer and the vapors have been proven to clean your lungs of filth and gunk that we breath in on a daily basis. Maybe—just maybe the cure for nearly everything is right around the corner.
The American Cancer Society supports Medical Marijuana as a form a treatment, stating:
“The American Cancer Society supports the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients, and recognizes the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the often debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment. The Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the US Drug Enforcement Administration imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids. Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.
Medical decisions about pain and symptom management should be made between the patient and his or her doctor, balancing evidence of benefit and harm to the patient, the patient’s preferences and values, and any laws and regulations that may apply.”
I’m glad that it’s been helping out Tommy Chong and his battle against rectal cancer. Tommy, I’m sending all my positive vibes your way, keep up the great attitude, you’re amazing.
