Tommy Chong launching YouTube show amid cancer battle

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, August, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Cannabis comic Tommy Chong isn’t letting cancer slow him down, launching a new YouTube show this fall called “Almost Legal.”

“It’s a stoner’s version of Jon Stewart,” he tells us, saying they’ll discuss “anything that affects the pot smoker’s status in any way, negative or positive.”

Chong, who has undergone chemotherapy for rectal cancer and is facing surgery in six weeks to remove the tumor, says marijuana for cancer treatment is his biggest topic.

“I’m in the middle of an experiment,” he explained, saying he’s taking marijuana, “orally and topically, and I have the blessing of all my straight cancer doctors.”

Chong touts pot’s use as a painkiller.

“I’ve been offered a lot of exotic painkillers that give you a tremendous drug habit,” he said. “I’ve been using pot instead . . . and that’s been the most beneficial.”

Back in the Spring world famous musician Willie Nelson announced that he would be coming out with his own strain of marijuana, called Willie’s Reserve. Almost instantly mainstream media ate up the story. After all, it’s a logical business move considering how synonymous Willie Nelson is with marijuana. It sounds like the first harvests are coming in the near future, and Willie’s Reserve marijuana strain could be on store shelves as early as September. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

In just two months, Colorado recreational shops may have some serious star power to contend with.

Country music legend Willie Nelson is planning on having his own personal strain, dubbed Willie’s Reserve, available in his own line of shops – and his plans might come to fruition as soon as September.

Nelson told Texas TV station KSAT that he’s hoping the strain will be ready by then. The singer, who first announced his new business plans in March, originally said he expected to be getting into the Colorado cannabis industry next year but apparently has moved up his timeline.

Get Well Soon Tommy Chong!

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, June, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

tommy chong hazel park jointI was actually a Tommy Chong fan before I was a marijuana fan. I don’t know how many people out there can say that. My first memory of Tommy Chong was when my uncle would listen to Cheech and Chong’s Wedding Album. About as far back as I could remember I have memories of hanging out at my uncle’s house and hearing that album. Admittedly, it’s not the most appropriate thing to play for a little kid, but I understood at an early age that some of the stuff was inappropriate, but that it’s for adults, not kids (and I turned out alright!). From there I watched every Cheech and Chong movie ever made growing up, and even though I didn’t really know all the way what marijuana was or was about, I found Tommy Chong’s humor hilarious.

When I got older and started consuming cannabis, Tommy Chong’s status was raised to an even higher level of admiration. Tommy Chong is a very talented entertainer, not only in his movies, but on stage as a musician, and in interviews. Tommy has long been one of my heroes, and I have always dreamed of the day that I could shake his hand, and possibly get him to sign my Chong Bong. I was extremely saddened to learn today that Tommy Chong has been diagnosed with rectal cancer. Per US Magazine:

“I’ve had some medical issues lately,” Chong told Us at the 826LA 10th anniversary party in Santa Monica, Calif. “I got diagnosed with rectal cancer.”

The That ’70s Show alum was previously diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012. A vocal advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana, Chong turned to the drug for relief in his first round of cancer and told Us he is doing the same now.

“I’m using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before,” the famed comic said. “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.”

That One Time Alex Trebek Got High For Multiple Days From Hash Brownies…

I am a very big fan of the show Jeopardy!, which of course is hosted by Alex Trebek. My great grandparents got me hooked on the show a long time ago when I was just a little kid. I think we have all seen the show at one time or another, and tried to show how smart we were by seeing if we could get the answers right. My great grandparents were very much products of their generation, and did not support sensible marijuana laws. So I was quite pleased when I saw that Alex Trebek admitted to using marijuana, and from what it sounds like, had quite the experience. Per High Times:

Alex Trebek went on Howard Stern’s radio show for the first time ever this week and ended up discussing his few dalliances with drugs.

The Jeopardy! host explained that he had tried smoking marijuana to help with arthritis in his shoulder, but it didn’t work for him, so he quit. He also admitted to trying cocaine once with his accountant.

But the best story he told involved accidentally eating some hash brownies.

“I went to this party at a home in Malibu and I didn’t know the people who were hosting the party and they had hash brownies,” Trebek said. ”I love chocolate, and I ate four or five hash brownies. The party was on a Friday night… I didn’t leave their home until Monday morning.”

From what it sounds like, Alex did not have the best experience. With that being said, his story highlights two things. Number one, no one should go from zero to hero when it comes to marijuana, especially with edibles. Consume responsibly, and know your limit, as with anything else. The second thing is that Mr. Trebek is yet another example of someone who has consumed marijuana that a lot of people wouldn’t have expected. I’d be very curious to hear what my great grandparents would have to say if they were here. Even if Alex didn’t have the best experience, he was ultimately fine, which is something that I don’t think he could say had he binged on some other legal substances that are generally accepted culturally in America.

Morgan Freeman Shoots Straight: On Legalizing Marijuana and His Escape From New York

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, May, 8th 2015 by THCFinder

You’ve all heard the voice—at once authoritative and passive, weaving every soothing syllable into an epic yarn. It’s guided you through forbidding prisons, alien invasions, and the icy plains of Antarctica. That the voice is attached to an equally arresting, freewheeling persona has the cumulative effect of, to quote hisShawshank Redemption character, making him seem “like a man in a park without a care or a worry in the world.”

It’s a testament to his acting ability, as these days Morgan Freeman, the Oscar-winning film legend, is in a great deal of pain.

Seven years ago, he was driving across Mississippi when his vehicle, a 1997 Nissan Maxima, skidded off the highway, flipping over several times. Freeman was rescued using the Jaws of Life and medevaced to a nearby hospital in Memphis. His left shoulder, arm, and elbow were shattered, and doctors operated for four hours to repair the nerves in his arm. He still hasn’t regained the full use of his left hand and wears a yellow compression glove to prevent blood pooling.

I ask him about his stance on the legalization of marijuana, since he’s a longtime user. “They used to say, ‘You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked!” says a chuckling Freeman. “My first wife got me into it many years ago. How do I take it? However it comes! I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it! This movement is really a long time coming, and it’s getting legs—longer legs. Now, the thrust is understanding that alcohol has no real medicinal use. Maybe if you have one drink it’ll quiet you down, but two or three and you’re fucked.”

He pauses, and points to the glove-aid jutting out from his left suit sleeve. “Marijuana has many useful uses,” he says. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life. That right there, to me, says, ‘Legalize it across the board!’”
