The Cheech & Chong star, who is an outspoken marijuana advocate, took part in the TV talent show last year (14) alongside others including Back to The Future's Lea Thompson and actor Alfonso Ribeiro.

Chong, who finished in ninth place, has now revealed TV bosses ordered him to cut out weed smoking during his time on the TV show, and it was even part of his contract.

During a chat with fans on Reddit.com, one user asked the funnyman, "Do you ever take tolerance breaks (from marijuana)? If so how long?" and Chong replied, "It was part of my contract while I was on Dancing With the Stars, actually. But no, not really."

The marijuana activist checked into the hospital in Los Angeles on Thursday (14Oct15) shortly after appearing on U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, where he revealed he's desperate to close out his longtime health issues.

Chong won his battle with prostate cancer in 2012, insisting pot suppositories were a miracle cure, but earlier this year (15) the comedian was diagnosed with rectal cancer - and he believes the hemp oil he used to beat his first cancer is the cause of his latest crisis.

He says, "When you go into your orifice you've got to clinically know what you're doing with it. I put suppositories up there and I don't know how they did the oil and so on, and so now I found a laboratory where they test and they make sure that the oil that they give you to inject and everything else is pharmaceutically correct, it's pure.

Tommy Chong Leonardo Dicaprio Martin Scorsese

Leonardo Dicaprio stars as stock market criminal genius Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's latest movie The Wolf of Wall Street, but this is one portrayal that Tommy Chong claims would not have happened were it not for him. Ahead of the film's release, the second half of Cheech and Chong has gone on record to state that he is partially responsible for Belfort's written account of his pre-prison life, making him partially responsible for the film adaptation too.

Tommy Chong says he helped Belfort write The Wolf of Wall Street

Chong was spotted out in Los Angeles last week by TMZ reporters, who quizzed the comic about his time in jail in the early 2000's, the same jail and the same time that Belfort was serving in for stock market manipulation and running a penny stock boiler room. At the time, Chong was serving 9 months for selling bongs online and in his recent on-the-street discussion, Tommy claimed that he got to know Belfort when he was behind bars, going on to claim that he encouraged Belfort to write his memoirs and even saying that he helped him do it.
