If you’re of a certain age, you know the following lyrics, sung by John Travolta in Grease, like the back of your hand.

Summer lovin’, had me a blast; Summer lovin’ happened so fast; I met a girl crazy for…weed?! 

Sandy from Grease smokes weed now. It’s no joke: Olivia Newton-John, who played the blonde-haired heartthrob Sandy in the classic film Grease, is a huge proponent of medical marijuana.

The actress, who has been diagnosed with cancer three times (including last September, when she announced she had stage 4 breast cancer), is now hitting the cannabis conference speaking circuit to talk about how smoking weed has helped her battle the side effects from treatment. 

“I was a little nervous because I don’t like the feeling of any kind of mind-altering thing,” the actress tells Good Housekeeping. “But I started out very slowly, and I adjusted to it, and it’s really helped me greatly.”
