Marijuana will not cure cancer.. it can help reduce pain though but marijuana itself does not have the correct phytochemicals to be able to kill cancer cells.

Moron who has smoked too much already and is delusional. Maybe he should learn from Steve Jobs who didn't seek treatment because he thought he knew better.

I love Tommy. I hope he can beat this. Weed is actually proven to reduce cancer cells. Just thought I'd throw that out there. My thoughts are with you Tommy. Stay strong <3

Sorry Chong but weed won't cure your cancer. It rots your mind and makes you think foolish things.

Go Tommy! Cannabis IS a cure for cancer, a man-made disease caused by thousands of toxic chemicals created in the last century. Cannabis does not cause cancer. Cannabis, alcohol and tobacco was found in mummies from ancient Egypt, but no cancer. The bloggers who are programmed by modern junk science and greedy money junkies show their ignorance, Tommy smoke it, eat it and rub it on your skin, cannabis will do you fine!

He's not SMOKING POT to cure his cancer, he's taking a medicine called Hemp Oil. He takes it at night before going to bed, and there is strong anecdotal evidence that shows it can cure cancer. Google "Run from the Cure" or search it on Youtube.
