Every year when April 20 rolls around people across the U.S. celebrate an unofficial holiday: weed day.

Stoners everywhere recognize 4:20 as being the time of day to light up, and when the date is 4/20 it's time to kick back, light up and smoke all day -- especially at 4:20. If you're into that kind of thing, of course.

Comedian and stoner icon Tommy Chong has been diagnosed with stage one prostate cancer.

The Cheech & Chong star confirmed the health crisis during a Saturday night interview with news channel CNN, revealing he was diagnosed last month.

He said, "I've got prostate cancer, and I'm treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis... I'm taking it as a medicine."

Chong insists his cancer battle is not related to his love of marijuana - because he was drug free when he started having prostate-related problems several years ago.

Cheech & Chong Show Off Their Medicinal Marijuana Cards

April 18th, 2010 11:00am EDT
Cheech & Chong
Cheech & Chong are back, and now they have medicinal marijuana cards. Their original films and stage shows were rebellious with pot humor in a “straight” world. Now Tommy Chong just takes his card out of his wallet to show the press he qualifies for medical weed.

“I’ve got my card,” Chong bragged. “Jack Herrera, he wrote The Emperor Wears No Clothes, the first marijuana book out.
