He should try Soursop. It's quite effective against cancer.

If it can't cure his career, it doesn't have a chance against cancer.

Cheech and Chong were absolutely HYSTERICAL in the day. Good times.
Get well soon, Tommy. Prostate cancer is beatable and you can live with it without problems for 20 years or more. :- )

Uh, Tommy. You've been smoking pot for centuries, and you still got cancer.

So now you think the pot is going to cure cancer?

Who say cannibis doesn't affect your mind?

There's a great video called Run From The Cure, that tells you how to cure cancer with cannibis. It's been used effectively for years. Google Phoenix Tears. Also UCLA Med center released proof in 2007 that they were successfully curing cancer with cannibis. Tommy just needs to right doseage of pure hemp oil taken internally. Too bad Zappa couldn't take the cure, too.

He has smoked pot all his life, got cancer. Now he thinks pot will cure his cancer? Logic that only makes sense to a loser pot head.

Sorry to hear this Tommy. Best wishes. FYI: Dirk Benedict (Face, from the orig A-Team) cured his cancer with a microbiotic diet. That was many years ago and he's still cancer free.

If pot was going to cure it, he would have never gotten cancer in the first place. I do hope he beats it and gets well though.

That's one sickly looking dude. I'm sure all his years of pot smoking didn't help.
