Tommy Chong bat­tling can­cer

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Christie D’Zurill a

Tommy Chong has rec­tal can­cer, he con­firmed Wed­nes­day, keep­ing his tone rel­a­tively pos­i­tive on so­cial media.

The co­me­dian and ac­tor, 77, joked via Twit­ter about the lo­ca­tion of the can­cer and added: “The good news is I now have to use more mar­i­juana to treat the can­cer.”

The “That ’70s Show” alum and taller half of Cheech & Chong bat­tled prostate can­cer in 2012. He said he will keep fans up­dated on his can­cer fight through “The Chong and Chong Show” pod­cast.

“Please wish me luck while I kick can­cer’s be­hind,” he wrote. “Thank you for all of your love and sup­port.”

Then he ex­cused him­self to “med­i­cate and med­i­tate.”
