It was a tense first outing for many of the new couples on the first episode of "Dancing with the Stars." The judges were expecting big show-stopping numbers, but instead were disappointed with many of the celebs' routines. While there were a few bright lights, it looks to be a season of criticism where the celebs will be working double time to score with both the judges and fans.

Tommy Chong
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.

And the comic told CNN newsman Don Lemon his diagnosis has made him even...

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. Him and I, when they changed the law the first time around here, there were no cards or anything so we designed our own card. It was a letter and then we had it shrunk into cards. So that’s the very first.”
