Good for him. Though the "there's no ill effects of smoking weed" crowd just took a blow.

Well damn. I'm not so upset with them cancelling those dates now, that sounds really rough.

First thing to pop into my head. I assume a lot of straight edge people are gonna start spreading this around.

Well, all those people who go on and on about how weed is harmless and has no negative side effects should try to explain this one (and I'm sure we'll still see lots replies on this try to)... but good for him. Living clean is the way to be.

doesn't sound like the weed caused it, just affected it negatively. which makes clear sense. smoking is obviously not good, that's a no brainer. not to mention the guy smokes cigarettes.

tommy chong is using cannabis to cure his cancer, by not smoking it, but by ingesting the raw extract.

i think a lot of people aren't reading what travis actually said about his health issue, just taking the news post for what it is, misleading.

wishing him a full and speedy recovery!

even now i'm sure he'd be fine with a vape, but better to be cautious i guess
