Tommy Chong has been a long time advocate of marijuana use and given that he took part in “Dancing With The Stars” in 2014, he had to give it up for a short while. He finished in ninth place on the show, but he has recently revealed that the network made it so he was contractually obligated not to smoke pot during his time on the show.
During a chat on Reddit one fan asked, “Do you ever take tolerance breaks (from marijuana)? If so how long?”
Chong replied, “It was part of my contract while I was on Dancing With The Stars, actually. But no, not really.”
He has also been undergoing treatment for cancer, but says that he uses cannibis in order to cope with the symptoms. He said, “I’ve had some medical issues lately… 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 there you have it!
