The actor-and-writer admits he relies heavily on marijuana during the creative process of a film because it relaxes him and takes away the pressure.
Seth – who wrote and stars in new movie ’50/50′ – told MTV News: “I smoke a lot of weed when I write, generally speaking. I don’t know if it helps me write. It makes me not mind that I’m writing. And I don’t know if it makes me work better, but it makes me not care that I’m working. Who wants to work? But if you’re stoned, it doesn’t seem like work.”
Seth says smoking cannabis is nothing new to him as all his friends do it.
He said: “I think a lot of people smoke weed. I think way more people smoke weed than the media likes to acknowledge. Maybe it’s just the people I’m around, but I don’t think so. Pretty much everyone that I know smokes weed sometimes – with the exception of my parents.”
Seth Rogen is the man no doubt about it. He’s one of the funniest writers/people in hollywood today, and is also a big supporter of mary jane. Seth’s done more than we really give him credit for in the fight for weed. He played a pot fueled leading man in the smash hit Knocked Up, something that you don’t see often. The good guy who ended up getting the girl, also ended up getting baked for a large portion of the film. He brought the subject into the mainstream, and no one seemed to mind. Rogen also helped redefine and rejuvenate the stoner comedy with Pineapple Express. Sure we had Harold and Kumar, but thats largely a goofy kind of movie laced with a ton of satire. No one was thinking of the funny stoner buddy violent action film until Pineapple Express came and set the bar. He got Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob) to discover the benefits of Cannabis, and Smith has said it changed his views on life.
Rogen is a guy who is loved by the mainstream and counterculture equally, and is great ally for the cannabis community. Outspoken, hilarious, and a great writer also, he’s helped assimilate pot into mainstream society without making people uncomfortable. We at Hail Mary Jane salute to you Seth Rogen, you are a real pot hero, and a true High Ally.
