Tommy Chong Diagnosed With Rectal Cancer

"Either I get healed or I don't," he said.

"I've had some medical issues lately," Chong, 77, told Us Weekly on Tuesday. "I got diagnosed with rectal cancer."

"I'm in treatment now," he added. "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."

He added, "I will be documenting my cancer fight on the Chong and Chong podcast to let my fans know how the fight is going. Please wish me luck while I kick cancer's behind. Thank you for all of your love and support."

He didn't specify what type of treatment he was undergoing.

He told CNN at the time that he no longer smoked marijuana for health reasons, but consumed hemp oil at night.

Chong's representative had no additional comment.
