LOS ANGELES and CARSON CITY, Nev., Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rapid Fire Marketing (Pink Sheets: RFMK) announced today the Company has posted a six -part in depth video series of Tommy Chong interviewed by Company Spokesperson Cheryl Shuman.
Tommy Chong, one-half of the marijuana-loving "Cheech and Chong" comedy duo, is battling prostate cancer as he announced in June on CNN. He first noticed symptoms in prison about eight years ago while serving time for selling drug paraphernalia. "I've got prostate cancer, and I'm treating it with cannabis oil," Chong told CNN's Don Lemon. "Legalizing marijuana means a lot more to me than just smoking a joint. I want to be able to use cannabis to treat my cancer without being arrested." He explained to CNN that he doesn't smoke marijuana and had quit about a year ago for health reasons.
Chong discusses 'Operation Pipe Dreams' and his incarceration at Taft Prison in an exclusive interview with Cheryl Shuman, herself a cancer survivor and medical marijuana activist. Cheryl, who has known Tommy for over 20 years in both in the entertainment and activism communities, reconnected with him after seeing the CNN piece and shared with him a new medical delivery system of cannabis oil called the CANNAcig by RFMK. "I reached out to Tommy after hearing about his diagnosis so I could share with him my experiences with cannabis oil in the treatment of my own cancer. At the end of the interview, I presented him with a CANNAcig and the same cannabis oil formula I learned to make from Rick Simpson of the Phoenix Tears Foundation," said Cheryl Shuman.
