Stoner icon Tommy Chong credits marijuana with helping him beat prostate cancer.

The actor claims he was able to beat the disease by shoving hemp oil capsules up his bottom.

He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "I took suppositories... You put on a little jazz, light a candle..."

The Up In Smoke star reveals the hemp oil pills didn't get him high, but adds, "I was working on the other end as well (smoking marijuana)."

And he challenges anyone who insists hemp by-products are not a cancer cure to check their research, adding, "I'm cancer free. You can say that because it's been documented. It has cured melanoma. (There was) no other medicine, just oil in the right places."
