Iconic actor, best-selling author, and Grammy Award-winning comedian Tommy Chong is perhaps best known as one-half of the legendary cannabis-fueled comedy duo Cheech & Chong which minted six gold records and released eight films during their reign, for which Chong also co-wrote and directed. Chong went on to star in several films and television shows, including his regular character, “Leo” on the popular series, “That 70s Show.”
After a nine-month prison sentence in 2004 for shipping bongs to Pennsylvania, the comic became a passionate advocate for cannabis freedom and fairness. In 2012 Chong announced he was battling prostate cancer and decided to combat his illness with a controversial cannabis oil protocol. On July 5, 2012, he revealed that the cannabis treatment had been effective and he is now cancer free. He continues to be an outspoken advocate for cannabis, which he credits for supporting his healthy and active lifestyle.
