Legendary comedian Tommy Chong dropped a bomb on the world when he revealed that he has prostate cancer, and has been battling it for a month. 

Tommy Chong has apparently been fighting prostate cancer for a while now.  He was officially diagnosed with the disease a month ago, but said he noticed symptoms start eight years ago.  Chong says that his fight to legalize illegal drugs means more than ever now that he has cancer.

Chong has been a avid supporter of the legalization of illegal drugs for years now.  He is most well known for performing with partner Cheech Marin in the 1970's.  Even at age 74, Chong is keeping the act going.  He also keeps his love for illegal drugs alive too.  While he doesn't partake anymore, he does ingest oil made out of the substance at night.
