Tommy Chong Fighting Prostate Cancer With Cannabis Oil

CANNABIS CULTURE – Tommy Chong, legendary comedian and hero of the marijuana movement, told CNN in a recent interview that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will be treating his condition with cannabis oil.

“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, a good friend of Cannabis Culture, Marc Emery, and the pot activism community, said he recently watched the movie Run From the Cure about medical pot advocate Rick Simpson, who claims to have cured cancer with the oil extracted from cannabis plants. Other films, like What if Cannabis Cured Cancer document the growing body of evidence showing the cancer-fighting properties of cannabis.

The comedian figures his problems started in 2004 when he was serving a nine-month prison sentence for selling bongs on the internet.

“I was totally healthy when I went into jail,” Chong said, “…and I started having problems with my prostate right there. I remember very well because when you have problems, you have to get up in the middle of the night and pee a lot. Then I also contracted gout while I was in prison from the food. So I think was a combination of the food and the fact that the prison itself in Taft, California is built over a toxic waste dump, and they have a thing there called valley fever that other prisoners were getting and they don’t even know what it was.”

Chong also said he supports the legalization of marijuana, but doesn’t think it should be taxed.

“All you have to do is decriminalize it,” he said. “just take away the criminal penalties. We don’t need a system of who we’re going to buy it from. We’ve got growers that we buy it from. … We don’t need a government regulation to tell us this is good pot and that is bad pot. We don’t need any of that.”

Two years ago my wife suffered from kidney cancer and the doctor told us that nothing could be done, I was so frustrated and the thought of loosing my wife was so unbearable that I lost all hope.

    One faithful day my daughter told me that she had found a cure for cancer and she found it on the internet, she ask me to watch Rick Simpson’s video with her. Although i didn’t believe her I watched it anyway just to please her and after watching it I discovered that it brought my hope back and i wanted to give it a try.

    Some experts feel that almost everyone has been exposed to Lyme disease and may have it in one way, shape or form.

    Lyme disease has recently received a new definition. It now refers to illnesses transferred by insects, as opposed to simply a tick-borne disease. Mosquitoes can carry Lyme disease and many other serious infections, as can spiders, fleas and mites.

    The Illegal Herb that Fights Cancer

    Cannabis plant extracts can effectively fight drug-resistant bacteria.

    Antibacterial Cannabinoids from Cannabis sativa

    The primary reason for this communication was to create an awareness of the methods of omission used by all parties in this great crime against humanity itself. Now if you look closely you will not find the mentioning of powerful antibiotic actions of marijuana nor will you find the mentioning of the Lyme plague (Lyme disease primarily is treated with powerful antibiotics ) which was so disturbing to myself — you the reader are being directed to these specific omitted facts with all the background provided.

    The Medical Miracle You’ll Get Arrested for Using

    The audience of the communication has at length in time now been exposed to the Lyme plague instrumented by the United States Government and their facilitating agents. The email sent out by Joseph Mercola clearly demonstrates the aggressive actions by the criminal parties which must be responded to with every action possible.

    Thus the difficult yet apparent facts of this bio weapon being empowered by marijuana Prohibition comes to light. This is the 2012 moment and we have to prosecute this crime.
