Seth Rogen: ‘I smoke weed all day every day of my life’

wenn36320319
Seth Rogen is promoting that awesome-looking romcom he’s in with Charlize Theron, Long Shot, where she’s the secretary of state and he’s playing a speechwriter. It’s out this weekend and I’m really looking forward to it. (The trailer is here.) He was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he talked about how he’s high constantly and recently started a cannabis business. I know he plays stoners and enjoys weed but I didn’t realize he was high all the time. That sounds like an exaggeration but it’s true and he emphasized that point.

Have you worked with Charlize Theron before?
No I was scared. I’m a actor so I don’t like it when people assume I am who my characters are, but whenever I meet another actor I just assume they are who their characters are. When I met Charlize Theron I thought ‘oh she’s going to kill me.’

I was a huge fan and I always thought she was funny. She’s an incredible actor. I’m an ok actor, but I’m not as good as she is. When I’m in a scene with someone who is acting well I find myself thinking ‘woah, this person is doing good.’ Then I start thinking ‘I shouldn’t be thinking that I’m in a scene right now.’ I’m sure Daniel Day Lewis has never thought that.

You do enjoy the occasional marijuana cigarette
Yeah I smoke weed all day every day of my life.

Have you ever acted [while high]?
For the last 20 years exclusively.

Could that be why you step outside the scene?
It is probably because I become a viewer. I do smoke a lot of weed. I do actually enjoy weed in my personal life and on film.

Any movie we see you in there’s a fairly good chance that you’re high
There’s 100%.

[From The Late Show]

Seth is also in The Lion King live action remake, he’s playing Pumbaa the warthog. That’s out July 19th. Beyonce is also in it but he didn’t get a chance to meet her. He told a story about trying to meet her at the Grammys over ten years ago when she was backstage with Gwyneth Paltrow. He tried to go over and meet them but Beyonce’s security blocked him and he spilled his drink all over himself. He had to go introduce Eminem with a stained suit.

As for the fact that he’s high constantly, I guess some people can function like that and are used to it. Pot makes me think too hard to function adequately but I suppose if it’s your normal you adapt. Also, he doesn’t seem high to me on screen unless he’s playing a stoner for some reason. Again, that could be because it’s his default state.

In the second part of his interview Seth talked about his cannabis business, which he started in Canada. He said “it’s a product I’m passionate about” and that it has been “amazingly gratifying” on work on it. His business is called House Plants and he said that for too long weed has been hidden and that he wanted to name it after something you proudly display.

Also, it’s a totally weird coincidence that I keep writing about weed. I don’t know why that’s happening.

    What would the conversation be if he said he’s buzzed every day all day and never goes a day without drinking?

    • Sunshine says:

      Weed doesn’t kill people like alcohol does. Also, depending on the strain you can actually be more productive while high. I smoke alot of high energy sativa’s and it helps with my anxiety and depression to the point that I can actually get shit done without feeling overwhelmed.

      • Aang says:

        Doesn’t kill you till you get lung cancer. Smoking is not good for you. I don’t care what you’re smoking.

      • Kitten says:

        It’s a bait-y question.

        Glad weed is helping you. I smoke it every night for my insomnia and it’s the only thing that’s ever helped me.

      • Sunshine says:

        Show me the people who’ve gotten lung cancer from smoking weed…

      • Kitten says:

        “Doesn’t kill you till you get lung cancer.”

        It’s called a vaporizer. Additionally, many people who smoke medical marijuana are already dealing with debilitating and or/life-threatening diseases. The last thing they’re worried about is dying of lung cancer, they’re just trying to achieve a decent and funtional quality of life like the rest of us.

      • Erinn says:

        Vapes, bongs, edibles all combat the kind of risks you’d have from smoking normally.

        You also have to remember that different strains provide different experiences. Not all are high in THC.

      • Carol says:

        Although weed doesn’t kill you like cigarettes or alcohol abuse, it is not without its issues and its not a panacea for all health problems. I used to work with a very prominent cannabis testing and analytics company that dealt with both medicinal and recreational cannabis and I learned how it can be used very effectively for pain management as well as how it can be abused and be a determinant for your health. For instance, it can mask pain that can signal something is going wrong with your body that needs immediate doctor’s attention, like a growing ulcer. But the real issue for me is that excessive cannabis use can hinder your ability to handles stress, build healthy relationships, and learn healthier ways to deal with life’s hurdles. Its like using food to medicate yourself for feeling unhappy, food won’t kill you but you’re sort of running away from dealing with life stuff. I’m not anti-cannabis at all, but it really bothers me when its treated like it there are no health repercussions from using it or rather abusing it.

      • detritus says:

        Quick science note: Cannabinoids do not increase risk of cancer because on a cellular level they increase apoptosis, instead of decreasing like nicotine.
        Inhaling any particulate is bad for your longevity and pulmonary function, but unless combined with tobacco leaf and smoked, marijuana has not been found to increase lung cancer risk, and is actually implicated in risk reduction of some cancers (above the neck, especially).

    • Kitten says:

      The conversation would probably start with “Welcome to Hollywood”.

      You’re describing plenty of actors. The studios, for the most part, don’t really care.

      Although I would suspect that they weigh the potential for catastrophe in either scenario and figure that it’s better to bet on the guy who at worst, forgets a line and eats all of craft services than the guy who at worst, trashes the set or gets into a fist fight with a grip.
      *shrugs*

      • Sunshine says:

        Not all weed makes people stupid, lazy and hungry either. Have none of y’all ever heard of sativa? The heavy lazy, hungry feeling is from the indica strain. I imagine during the day he smokes sativa which is actually sort of on par to drinking coffee…

      • Kitten says:

        Meh. Sativa and indica have been cross-pollinated to create hybrid strains for so long that they’re essentially the same. You won’t find any strain that is purely sativa or purely indica–that’s just marketing BS–which is why it’s important to find a strain that works for you and ignore the dumb labels that you’re referencing here.

      • Sunshine says:

        I disagree. I feel a HUGE difference when I smoke indica vs sativa. Friends of ours won the weed lottery in Ontario and have a cannabis store. They get in high energy sativa’s that are unlike any weed I’ve smoked before. It’s not just marketing BS. Must be different in the US. The difference in strains is pretty legit in Canada.

      • Kitten says:

        Of course. Because different strains do different things to you and make you feel differently–but that has absolutely nothing to do with the arbitrary label of “indica” or “sativa”. You might find a hybrid that has more sativa than indica or vice-versa but you won’t find either pure sativa or pure indica. EVERYTHING is hybrids now.

        And yes, it IS marketing BS. A quick google search, any number of pot documentaries, and anyone who has worked in the MJ business (I have two close friends who do as well) would tell you the same.

        https://www.green-flower.com/articles/768/the-real-difference-between-cannabis-indica-vs-sativa

      • Sunshine says:

        I guess you don’t realize that they are literally 2 different types of plants?. I don’t understand how you say of course they make you feel different but are the same type of weed? I’m confused. I also don’t understand your raging out over me saying sativa’s are high energy. I never said I smoked 100% sativa weed. I referenced sativa in that it’s the kind that is energizing and uplifting.

        https://www.peacenaturals.com/indica-vs-sativa-understanding-the-differences-between-the-two-cannabis-plants/

      • Kitten says:

        Except they’re not scientifically or legally different.

        Here’s another article: “For a study published in 2015, he collected 81 samples of weed from various distributors—categorized, of course, in terms of indica and sativa. His team sequenced the genomes of the pot and found that the labels didn’t correspond with meaningful genetic differences—which, to him, is kind of upsettingly out of step with other consumable products.”

        https://slate.com/technology/2019/04/indica-sativa-difference-cannabis-weed-science.html

        Seriously, there is a WEALTH of information about this on the web. I know it’s hard to hear that what you’ve been told your whole life is basically BS, but it’s important to be an informed weed-consumer.
        So don’t hung up on indica versus sativa. Just sample different varieties and find what works for you.

      • Sunshine says:

        I’m not hung up on anything but clearly you are. What do you ask for then when you purchase weed and want an uplifting high? The strains are separated by “indica dominant” and “sativa dominant” as they each have different desired effects. Dispensaries and cannabis stores in Canada actually list their weed menu by it being Indica or Sativa dominant. I don’t get why that’s so upsetting to you.

      • Sunshine says:

        Look at that, Seth rogan’s own weed strain is called “houseplant sativa”… People reference sativa or indica with the effects they want out of it. Nobody cares if they’re genetically the same type of plant or not.

        “The company’s first strain will be called Houseplant Sativa, which will be available for purchase this April in British Columbia, Canada. In addition, the company will release a Houseplant Hybrid and Houseplant Indica strains, as well as soft gels and prerolled joints, later this year.”

        Better call him and tell him his labels are stupid are arbitrary, even though that’s literally how people ask for and buy weed lol

        https://www.thegrowthop.com/cannabis-culture/seth-rogen-finally-joins-the-marijuana-business-through-canopy-growth

      • Sunshine says:

        What’s the matter Kitten, no more insults to hurl at me just for saying there’s 2 distinct weed strains? Better tell Seth, his grower and every grower, dispensary and cannabis store in Canada that indica and sativa are arbitrary, dumb labels that don’t mean anything. Maybe take your own advice and become an “informed weed-consumer” LOL

      • Kimble says:

        Weed fight!!!!

      • Sunshine says:

        @Kimble lmao! Seriously right? I’ve never had someone become so rude or defensive about something as stupid as weed strains before. Apparently I’m an uneducated idiot because I’m referring to the 2 main strains as how the entire world refers to them. There’s basically 3 major strains that all other strains fall into – indica, sativa and hybrid. Glad to see my boy Seth proved my argument. Maybe he and his team are just as stupid and uninformed as I am…

      • Sunshine says:

        And because I love a good dead horse beating, I leave you with this…

        “Down to the strain names and graphic design, Houseplant has taken all measures to ensure there will be no confusion about the desired effects of the products. Each of the three flowers is named after its growth profile—Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid—and has its own colour block.

        Even the direction of the lines on the packaging indicating the purported characteristics of the flower, which Houseplant calls the “colour line system”. The sativa’s lines, for example, run vertical to indicate it’s suited for a consumer who wants to be “up and ready to go”. Indica, on the other hand, has horizontal lines on the label for someone looking to “lie down”, and the hybrid flower has diagonal lines to imply the effects will land somewhere in the middle.”

        Seems like alot of effort for something so meaningless, no?

        https://www.straight.com/cannabis/1219476/what-we-know-about-seth-rogens-cannabis-brand-houseplant

      • lascivious chicken says:

        Kitten is 100% right and obviously just got sick of trying to explain it. Indica and sativa are two different plants that have been cross-bred so frequently and for so long that essentially all marijuana sold to consumers is a hybrid (not just the strains labeled “hybrid” at the dispensary). It is basically marketing at this point. Of course different strains have different effects, but they don’t cleanly break into the “sativa” and “indica” categories by effect. Instead, it seems that many are labeling strains that bring you a bit lower as “indica” and higher as “sativa” despite their not being good genetic info to support these labels. Get it?

      • Sunshine says:

        Sure. I’ll continue to stick with how it’s labeled. As I said, people use the terms indica and sativa to indicate the desired effects they want from it. Anyone who’s going to get hung up about that needs a life. My husband has been growing weed for over a decade and this is how he and everyone else we know who works in the business, from hydroponics companies, growers, dispensaries, cannabis stores (and also Seth and his company and business partners) distinguishes between the two streams of desired effects from weed consumption. People don’t ask for strictly “uppy” or “downy” weed lol

        There’s literally only 3 genus of species (maybe 4 if you count ruderalis) that weed falls into and that’s sativa, indica and hybrid. And when growing these “strains” you realize they require less or more light than each other and have different needs to make a healthy crop. You can reference any growers resource guide to find that information. If they’re all the same why do they require different environments?

        Sorry that’s too “pedestrian” for you but arguing over the semantics of weed strains is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Don’t you two have some quantum mechanics homework to finish since you’re both clearly so much more advanced than the rest of us?

    • Wow says:

      Weed isn’t linked to cancer, liver disease, high blood pressure, addiction, domestic violence, or brain shrinkage.

      Alcohol is far far worse for the human body. It is poison and the result of taking in poison is your hang over. Marijuana can treat several conditions successfully where pharmaceuticals fail i.e. epilepsy, insomnia or chronic nausea from cancer treatments. It also can treat chronic pain without the risk of addiction so high its basically an inevitability that opiate pain killers have. It can reduce suicide impulses in men and women with ptsd and major depressive disorder.

      If someone told me they drink all day I would think its safe to assume they will be dead within 5 years. If someone smokes all day, no one would probably notice since there are a ton of people who do it to treat medical conditions and no one knows.

      There are people who shouldn’t consume marijuana because of underlying mental illness like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder as it can exacerbate the condition. Overall for the majority of people it is fine. No one is dying from marijuana, it is impossible to overdose on and even if you smoke it your risk of cancers actually goes down.

      Chill with the reefer madness, Nixon lied to you so he could imprison the black population under the guise of a war on drugs. Please educate yourself before contributing to misinformation.

      • Sunshine says:

        Great response!

      • Enn says:

        I actually use it for migraine so slow your roll. Just asking why a person needs to be altered every waking hour.

      • Snowslow says:

        @Wow
        While I see your point and am totally for medical marijuana (and also understand that weed for certain communities is as much a tradition as red wine is for my country) Seth has not medical condition that we know of (and btw I am neither bipolar or epileptic and weed puts me in a very bad state). So this means that, like people who drink all the time, Seth does this for the buzz. If he was a person close to me I’d be worried that this would affect his behaviour like any other mind-altering substance. Relying on something that affects your mind doesn’t seem like a great choice to me and it usually sparks annoying or at least cryptic behaviour.

      • Wow says:

        Snowslow its not right for everyone. No one is required to smoke. Having preconceived notions that it is bad or dangerous and fearing for people if they do choose to partake for any reason is perpetuating racist falsehoods. I made a very short overview. There are several reasons people may not tolerate it including mixing it with other medications, protein levels in their individual body chemistry and so on. If you don’t like it fine, but please don’t perpetuate racist misinformation that was spread to imprison the black population.

      • Snowslow says:

        @Wow I see you crusading for a cause that might not apply to all of us. I am not American (you mentioned Nixon) and in my experience most potheads I met and actively deal with are mostly white boys / men, intellectuals and a few women. There is a lot of information about weed (good scientific research) which nowadays fortunately can trump misconceptions. But we were debating the effects that we’ve all experienced and witnessed beyond the medical use – namely in writing in my experience, which I can tell you is sometimes hilarious and sometimes great. As you say it depends on the people.
        I am sure you’re right about the misinformation regarding weed and the black community not only in the US but also other countries though. It must also have interested the spirits producers and sellers not to have weed legalised as it’s not great for business I suppose (but this is only a hypothesis).

      • Christina says:

        Thanks, WOW, for educating people about the racist component. Most people don’t understand or they don’t want to. All they remember is “Reefer Madness”…

      • Mel M says:

        I was just talking to my husband about this the other day. His father is one of those holy than thou, thinks weed is from the devil yet drinks on a daily basis and a lot on the weekends. I don’t understand people that think alcohol, with all of its terrible side effects and just effects on your life in general is totally ok but week is the root of all evil. I smoked recreationally a lot when I was younger and I just grew out of it because like CB I way over think when I’m high and after having kids I got so paranoid so I stopped. I would never shame someone or preach against it though now even though I don’t like the way it makes me feel. I also have a friend that smokes all day everyday and he’s totally fine. Can’t imagine what he would be like without.

      • Wow says:

        @cristina it blows my mind how you’ll see commenters run to these threads about marijuana and even though they will claim elsewhere to be so hurt, angry and offended by other racism, this racism is an okay racism because in their “experience” its a “true” racism. 🙄 yet they are too ignorant to realize for every 10 people they interact with 7 use pot semi regularly and between 3 and 5 depending on the survey categorize as habitual users. Most people don’t exactly scream in public if they partake in marijuana because of peoples reinforcement of racism if they are a POC and general ignorance in their hatred of “pot heads”.

        I hate invalidating experiences, but I fail to see how your experiences are valid when A) you never know most people use and B) the information you use to defend this faux concern and disapproval is all false and was created by racist to do racist stuff.

      • xflare says:

        Not a word of that is true.

      • stormsmama says:

        Weed has helped me improve my running- i shaved almost a full minute off my mile for my second marathon with the use of weed before training runs…went from a 4:30:18 marathon to a 4:10:16 marathon!
        Im a sativa girl all the way! Indica=in da couch :/ no thanks
        Now I use herb for running – helps me focus on breathing, stride, and keep running-
        and occasionally for cleaning or folding laundry Marie Kondo style.
        I don’t do it to party or get off
        but i will say it really helps me to remember myself and not succumb to lazy or negative thoughts. I guess you could say it has the opposite effects than the stereotypical effects of pot.

        I think its hazardous to young brains but I think its brilliant for me- at 42- and am grateful the stigma is going away…now if only our incarceration rates could change…

      • Sunshine says:

        Careful stormsmama or you’ll get a talking to for referring to weed as either indica or sativa, even though that’s literally how every single person who’s ever smoked weed distinguishes between the two types of high (see above for context) lol

    • Anon says:

      Well, I’m not here to moralize, but weed is not the same as alcohol and other drugs. Also, for those of you screeching about “lung cancer,” uh, not if you’re into edibles, which many people are.

      That’s right! You can actually buy any number of products that don’t involve “smoking,” ie, patches, tinctures, edibles, etc. I live in Colorado and there’s a veritable panoply of non-smoking options.

      Really, people, you should do more research.

  2. BengalCat😻 says:

    My ex wrote his entire doctoral thesis while high. I’m an avid smoker myself but I will forever be mystified by that.

    • Snowslow says:

      A friend of mine was so stressed during the last years of her PhD that she had to smoke weed and it helped her a lot. I also wonder how she did it! I am finishing mine and considered doing it for a minute as my mind is playing tricks on me but I know I don’t react super well.
      Btw I think not reacting well might be due to the fact that I have a hard time letting go of being in control so I think that it’s just not for me.

    • Erin says:

      I wrote a 32-page thesis on Nishkam Karma for my first-ever Indian Studies class completely blazed and got an A. God knows how, I think you just get in the zone.

  3. Dhavynia says:

    He’s always been very open about his weed consumption but I guess I’m surprised it’s an every day ritual. Good for him that he’s able to function normally, some people think they’ll be too paranoid if they do it on an every day basis, then again I wouldn’t know

    • olive says:

      when you do it every day, you’re not having the same experience as people who only do it once in a while. a lot of regular smokers like seth will take a break to get their tolerance back up so they can have a better high, because if you’re smoking every day all day you’re not feeling high in the same way as an infrequent smoker would. it’s more subtle and you can function pretty normally if you’ve got a high tolerance, so it’s not as fun, IMO.

    • Erin says:

      I was smoking regularly with no paranoia, stopped for a couple months for job interview stuff, and then started again. Now I’m not sure I’ll ever enjoy it the same way because I feel for the same time the paranoia I always heard others talking about that seemed so foreign to me at the time. Honestly it is probably a blessing.

  4. Snowslow says:

    I sincerely don’t get weed. It’s like putting a filter – more than the one we naturally have – between us and the world.
    It freaks me out to loose control over myself. What I enjoy is try to understand myself and develop strategies to better the very faulty basis I started with.
    That said medical marijuana I am all for obviously. Although if it gets you paranoid, I don’t see how it’s good for anxiety.
    Edit: also, I watched an interview with him and Charlize and I found him a bit slow as if he was in a different pace. Now I get why.

    • olive says:

      it helps with my anxiety by putting me squarely into that moment instead of worrying about the future. if i start getting all existential and panicky about my life, it helps me relax and focus on what i’m doing right then, or just zone out and look at a bumblebee or something and notice how pretty it is lol. it’s not for everyone, but it never made me paranoid so it works for me.

  5. Yolanda Ramos says:

    I saw the movie last week during a AMC preview and it was hilarious. One minor correction, Charlize plays the Secretary of State.

  6. Tiffany :) says:

    I wonder if this will impact insurance on his films. Or maybe they won’t allow him to do stunts, etc. I think a lot of people do this, but to say on record may have consequences.

    • Anon says:

      LOL, Seth Rogen doing “stunts.” Have you *seen* Seth Rogen? The only stunt he might perform is stepping off a curb.

  7. Caty says:

    I LOATHE potheads, but I’d guess he was actually joking about being high “all the time”.

    I do wish someone would ask him about the fact that he’s proudly gloating about how much he loves weed and how much he smokes it and how he started a new business while non-whites are still being locked up for it.

    • Wow says:

      I would love for all the white people in this thread to explain why they are perpetuating the reefer madness trope that was 100% engineered to imprison the black population and we now have plenty of scientific evidence to show all of the anti marijuana/reefer madness/prohibition fear mongering against marijuana for decades was all lies and just an excuse to keep black Americans “in their place” during and after the civil rights movement.

      You don’t have to like weed, and thank you for bringing up the REAL issue here even if you personally aren’t a fan. Every time an article about weed comes up on here there are so many racism reinforcement comments on here from people who genuinely believe themselves woke and informed, yet the are showing they hold actively racist beliefs.

      • Caty says:

        White, black, brown, yellow – I think anyone obsessed with weed outside of medical reasons is weird and I don’t want to be near them.

      • Wow says:

        Your use of yellow is kind of reinforcing this view on marijuana is probably based in you having racist views since you are comfortable using “yellow” as a descriptive for Asians.

        Fun fact, statistically you interact with a ton of people who use marijuana at least 3 times a week and never know it.

      • Anon says:

        Thank you, Wow. Exactly. “Yellow,” lol, OMG! It’s always 1952 for Caty.

    • CharliePenn says:

      Wow Caty you sound like a lot of fun…
      you LOATHE people who use a marijuana plant for their own purposes in their own body? Miss me with that judgemental crap.

      I am a daily pot user. I’ve recently moved to mainly edibles for a few reasons: better pain relief, milder high (for me personally), no irritating smoke for my throat.
      I have two kids and I have to keep moving despite chronic pain. People who know me for years have no idea that I use pot daily… because it’s none of their business but also because once you have a tolerance it doesn’t affect you all that strongly.

      • Snowslow says:

        Allow me to just say that you are not a pothead, you are a daily user who avoids the mental effects as you so well describe so I don’t think you are the typical person she was describing.
        People get super defensive with this. Lighten up! Medical marijuana is awesome!

    • elle says:

      He comes across as smug to me no matter what he’s talking about.

    • Wendy says:

      I’m a daily cannabis user, have been for over a decade at this point, and I work a demanding full-time job where I keep getting promoted for my excellent work. On top of that, I’m currently in school full-time finishing a bachelor’s degree in a size-limited program (meaning I had to work my ass off to gain admission and beat out other applicants), with a cumulative GPA of 3.8 and a spot on the dean’s list every quarter.

      I’d bet my entire next paycheck that there are people in your life that you don’t even realize are regular users of cannabis because they don’t fit into your narrow definition of what a cannabis user is like.

  8. Cheryl says:

    I know it’s an unpopular opinion, but I think getting high every day isn’t healthy mentally or physically. While it isn’t addictive in a physical way like opiates, pot is def. psychologically addictive. Like everything else, moderation is really important. Also, weed/CBD oil isn’t the cure all for everything that ails you.
    Ok, I’m running for cover now.

    • Snowslow says:

      I agree with you. While there are many reasons to legalise it and to use it in medicine, weed is certainly addictive psychologically (I can’t do this if I don’t smoke kind of behaviour). Also, I have yet to meet a pothead who doesn’t annoy the hell out of me. But that may be personal, I have second hand embarrassment when I see people who are high or drunk and cannot deal.

    • SandyStrange says:

      In my opinion, weed is still the lesser evil compared to alcohol and cigarettes. So I think putting it down is pointless while those other two drugs are still in such wide and unregulated use.

      For the record, I know potheads who function 20x better then any alcoholic (even when said alkie is sober).

      • Snowslow says:

        @Sandy I know that alcohol was brought up above but that is not the point here. Nor the ability to function – which can hide many things. I dunno, I feel that people get super defensive about pot or alcohol which for me is super fishy. I am neither against one or the other (although both bewilder me when taken to excessive uses) but I do agree that alcohol is far worse for many reasons as far as studies go. Which doesn’t mean that @Cheryl doesn’t have a point.

      • SandyStrange says:

        Sorry, but I just feel that a lot of people get down on pot while also loving to indulge in other drugs, like alcohol, cigarettes, pain pills, social media, ect. The truth is, everyone is addicted to something, and those who claim not to be are not really honest. I just think acting as if pot is some hard drug that can potentially destroy someone is laughable.

        For the record, I don’t smoke pot or cigs, drink, or pop pills. I just think this reefer madness fear some still have is funny, considering the much more dangerous and destructive drugs available, such as the opiate epidemic in this country. The worst I’ve seen pot for is make someone chill.

        @Sandy
        Listen, my son is an anxious kid and treats his anxiety with gaming that I (and him) have to keep in check. I told him to try pot if he needed to relax (of course he’d already tried it) and he thought it was not the best strategy as he had to smoke it and also because it brings other effects into the picture – and that’s our point – the buzz. So yes, society is complicated, we all try to get by.
        The point for me is that anything used in an exaggerated manner is problematic because, as you say, humans tend to have addictive behaviour.

    • Lua says:

      No, I agree with you. It’s great for the patients I treat for their nausea and headaches, but recreationally speaking, I don’t know why anyone would argue there is nothing wrong with being “high all day long” every day. If you can’t allow the fog to lift and live in the present there is something missing in your life, and you should seek it out instead of sedate yourself. You only get a limited number of days in your life. When you spend an entire day in a fog, that’s one less day you have.

    • Amelie says:

      No, I agree with you and I’m always in the minority. I used to think pot was the devil but I grew up very sheltered. I have never smoked pot or tried edibles or any weed derivative which always shocks people. I am not against medical marijuana by the way. My uncle who has Parkinson’s has used some in the past and it does help with the tremor in his hand. I don’t think he uses it often though. Anyone who uses it for chronic pain or what have you I totally support. The medicinal benefits of weed should be exploited.

      And I have been around people who have smoked/eaten edibles and what have you. My former roommate used to host parties where people freely indulged and I didn’t care. I always decline when offered and no one hassled me about it. I’m also not a fan of the smell, it’s really not pleasant. I understand for some people it helps with anxiety and depression which I understand.

      However to use it every single day… I don’t care if you have a high tolerance like Seth. It can’t be good for you. It might not cause cancer and people say you can’t become addicted (I have my doubts about that). But driving while being high is not safe (if you are taking it recreationally, not medically), just like drinking and driving is not safe. And we all know people abuse it and drive while high. Obviously everyone’s tolerance is different but I would not want to get in a car with someone behind the wheel who had just consumed a lot of weed. For those of you who smoke/use it every day, I hope you are safe and smart when it comes to driving and that you don’t mix the two.

    I don’t think he has kids right? I did hear he and his wife are discussing having them. If so, he will have to change that behavior. Imagine if this was your neighbor who told you he smokes weed all day every day, wouldn’t you wonder where the f*ck his kid is while he’s smoking up? How are you able to take care of a kid when you are high all day long? He better NOT be driving either. How is Seth going to kick his habit of smoking all day when a kid comes a long? Should be interesting.

  10. Mama says:

    So.. like… he never drives, right?

    • CharliePenn says:

      This is an important comment! As I said above I’m a daily weed user for pain. But I never drive high. Ever. Never.
      If I have to drive I don’t get high until I’m back home. As someone who knows lots of daily users, the only problem I ever have is seeing people get high and drive.

      Unlike the rather bizarre persons above who honestly seem to think that all people who use pot are annoying (like, what? You probably don’t even know that a lot of people you interact with daily are pot users. It’s not all college kids on the couch with a bong all day 🙄), I know an array of personalities with all different jobs, lives, etc who use pot often or daily. Including my husband, who doesn’t need it for pain but enjoys getting high in the evening. He provides for us all, is extremely successful at what he does, and is a great father and husband. Never an issue… but don’t get on the road when your reactions are slowed even by a fraction!

      If I can be 36, smoking/ using pot since 19, and managed to never drive while high then I think anyone can set that simple guideline for themselves.

      • ME says:

        So you have seen people get high and drive and not stop them? That’s the same as knowing someone is drunk and not stopping them from driving.

  11. Surly Gale says:

    I’m pretty much a daily smoker also. But not tobacco any longer, so that’s good. Pain relief that doesn’t constipate me is a good thing…….

  12. Nicegirl says:

    I will see this movie. Also, I love weed.

  13. Dizzy says:

    Let’s hear it for being sober all the time. Try it, you’ll like it. I love it. It makes me feel alive and present in the moment. Just get high on the beauty all around us. Flowers blooming birds chirping

    • SandyStrange says:

      I’m sober all the time. It’s whatever, or bad considering my anxiety and dissociative episodes. Nothing to write home about, so there is no reason to pretend I’m a better person because I don’t indulge.

    • MrsBanjo says:

      Let’s hear it for all the other people on this thread who manage not to be judgmental assholes. You’ve no idea why or how people use marijuana. You likely interact with dozens of people every day who smoke or use weed without having any idea. But here you are, telling people that their experience is less valid than your own

      • olive says:

        i’m dead at “get high on the beauty around us.” it’s so simple-minded. sobriety isn’t all rainbows and sunshine either.

  14. Beegirl says:

    i wonder if know he and charlize smoked together? she’s talked about getting her mom edibles and i know she used to be a pot smoker. it’s hard to pass it up when you’re with a pothead. probably. i’d like to be a fly on that wall! i used to smoke all day , everyday. ironically, i started smoking pot again (after stopping in my twenties) to get off coke. it worked! say what you will, i think if everyone smoked the world would be a better place! no weed was not my gateway drug to coke, alcohol was!

  15. Nichole says:

    How the heck did he lose so much weight if he’s smoking all the time? When I get high, I’m like a bottomless dumpster. Nom Nom nom… Are there strains that don’t do that?!

    • Wow says:

      I personally think thats individual because I lose weight if I smoke more often strain doesn’t matter. There are people more educated on strains and the effects that definitely do have info on which strains don’t increase appetite for those who struggle with that.

      My mother in law pre preps her food and doesn’t eat before she smokes so she’s not stacking calories. She lost weight having to smoke to manage PTSD related insomnia just because she gets the munchies and its made her mindful of her eating. Her blood pressure also went down, in my opinion that is related to the change in food not marijuana.

    • Sunshine says:

      There’s several (mostly sativa dominant strains) that are appetite suppressing… In my personal experience anything indica dominant puts me “in da couch” and gives me raging hunger. Though, don’t take my word for it apparently these strain labels are meaningless… *rolls eyes*

    • Snowflake says:

      Ikr?! I can’t smoke and not want to eat. Like alcohol, once i get buzzed i will eat anything. I can’t smoke or drink and stick to my diet. Sucks ass. I’ve heard people say try edibles etc etc but it’s still illegal in Florida and i don’t want to get arrested or get a ticket for marijuana or paraphernalia on my record. I wouldn’t even know where to find edibles.

  16. Molly says:

    If I had to guess, I’d say Seth is managing his own ADHD with daily weed. It works for him, clearly.

  17. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Wow. I think everyone needs a blunt lol. It’s still illegal here. But a friend of mine smokes all the time and it’s like an upper for her. She cleans like a mad woman and gets a ton of shit done. Who knew?

  18. Lindy says:

    I sometimes feel like posts about weed instantly turn into “but booze is so much worse!” threads.

    I’m pro-legalization, in favor of vacating the sentences of those serving time for pot-related offenses (esp because of the racism that’s always been part of that). I have the occasional drink (maybe 3 or 4 times a month) and have never smoked pot. No problems with anyone who does, but I do question the professionalism of someone who shows up to work high AF every day.

    Also. My father is an oncologist. There’s a ton of research that shows that smoking anything (including weed, pipes, cigars) leads to cancer. Not just lung cancer, also mouth, neck, tongue. Obviously edibles get rid of that risk. But it’s simply untrue to say that smoking weed isn’t carcinogenic.

    I really hope it gets legalized soon so that those who benefit from it can be free to use it thoughtfully and responsibly without fear of punishment. I also hope that legalization will help lessen the need for pro-weed people to be really defensive and loud in every single discussion.

  19. Aang says:

    I occasionally self medicate with sugar. I don’t try and convince myself or anyone else it is healthy and without risk. Miss me with the pot is harmless crap. It’s benefits may outway the harm for some. And I’m all for each person making that decision for themselves. But it does no one, espeyypung peopel, Amy good to try and sell it as a harmless panacea.

  20. Canadian says:

    I’ve enjoyed reading this debate. I’ve seen weed and CBD help many folks. I’ve also seen it cause drug induced schizophrenia in my cousin and psychosis in a friend. It’s not for everybody. It’s legal now in Canada and there are a lot of kids excited about legalization (for adults) who have developing brains and are getting into it way too young IMO. If I get cancer someday, I’m gonna be all over weed.

    • Wow says:

      Weed doesn’t induce schizophrenia. Schizophrenia presents in people’s twenties. They always had it and always would have had it often marijuana is a misguided scapegoat for what is actually self medicating during the onset of a debilitating mental illness. Same for psychosis, you have underlying mental illness that is exacerbated by marijuana not caused by it.

      These are extremely important distinctions because marijuana does not CAUSE mental illness, people HAVE mental illness and they shouldn’t use marijuana because it can exacerbate certain symptoms in certain diagnosis.

      Like anything some stuff isn’t suitable for some people. That doesn’t make it inherently dangerous or something people should be wary about or disapprove of when people do use it.

      • Sunshine says:

        @WOW I have to say I have loved reading your replies today. It’s clear you are well educated on this subject and it’s refreshing to see that you can debate or simply correct people’s statements without needing to be rude or making the other person feel “less than”… Others could learn something from you.

  21. KidV says:

    Meh. I still prefer alcohol. *runs out of room*

  22. BPM says:

    Seth Bro’gen

  23. sunshine gold says:

    I guess I’ll provide a controversial opinion…..is that doesn’t seem cool to me, it seems sad. Anything you do every day all day seems like a crutch, no? If it was beer, Cheetos, whatever.

    • Sophie says:

      You’re right. It is sad. Any form of substance abuse is sad.

    • Marina says:

      It is sad. If you have to get high everyday, then something is desperately missing from your empty existence- like people who misuse prescription medication.
      Imagine if Seth Rogan wasn’t a rich, white male admitting this….I doubt some of the people on this board would be applauding him as much.
