Seth Rogen issues advice on smoking weed, saying 'most people can incorporate' it into their lives

That's it, Rogen has spoken!

Seth Rogen has dished on his latest cannabis venture while also addressing the major stigma behind the drug being used recreationally.

In an interview with The Guardian's Gene Marks, Rogen, 39, talked about his business Houseplant which launched in 2019. Alongside Rogen, the business was supported by screenwriter Evan Goldberg, who's produced many of his flicks like Superbad and This is The End, and the company's CEO Mikey Mohr.

Not only does the business distribute cannabis in the California area but they also produce bespoke cannabis accessories.

He said that the "stigmatization of weed" has created an idea that it's "way more dangerous" than drinking.

"Why should it be any worse to go to a cannabis site than it is to walk into a restaurant that serves alcohol?" he said. "It shouldn't be, it's like you not going into an Applebee's because they have beer."

He continued: "I hope that slowly people understand that the things they've been told about it are not true and that most people, if not everyone, can in some way incorporate weed into their lives that would be positive.

"Be it for sleep or relaxation or CBD for muscle pain and things like that.

"It has anti-inflammatory effects, I think it's something that has an enormous amount of potential to help a huge amount of people, and I hope that it has the opportunity to do that."

Rogen has been a staple of the comedy genre since his appearance in Judd Apatow's Freaks and Geeks back in 1999. While Rogen's latest venture makes sense, given his passion for weed, home goods is not something you'd usually associate the actor with.

However, as he explained: "Smoking used to be this kind of in-vogue thing that drew a lot of great minds to the things that surrounded it, ashtrays and things like that."

He acknowledged that as smoking became less popular, largely due to the health detriments, antique-style furnishings like ashtrays fell out of fashion. But, "with the rise of weed, it seems like there's a new place for these things."

The Pineapple Express star added: "I started collecting them and then we started conceiving of how we could maybe create our own, newer versions of the types of things that I was kind of repurposing, things specifically made for people with my lifestyle."
