Seth Rogen Weed Quotes
I Have A Very Specific Ailment
Appearing on Conan in 2010, Seth Rogen spoke with the late-night host about medical marijuana and Proposition 19, which dealt with medical marijuana in the state of California. In the interview, Rogen explained that he does in fact have a medical marijuana prescription for what he described as a "very specific ailment."
Conan: "Now, I don't want to make any assumptions about you; I know you, I don't say I know you better than a lot of people in the business, but I'm guessing that you were disappointed that Proposition 19 failed. Is that an assumption?"
Seth: "I was, I was very – the marijuana proposition, yeah. But the good news is, literally anyone on Earth can get a medical marijuana card."
Conan: "Well in this state – that's the thing that I couldn't understand - in this state people were so, it was such a big question: will they legalize marijuana or not? And it looks like it's fairly easy thing to do, to get a medical marijuana card."
Seth: Yes, I have a medical marijuana prescription, personally. I went in, they said, 'what do you need it for?' and I said, 'I have a very specific ailment – it's called, I ain't got no weed on me right now.'"
Conan: "I ain't go no weed on me."
Seth: That's how I worded it. And the lady said, 'we actually have just the thing for that.'"
I Think I'm A Bad Influence
Promoting a non-weed-based film, the 2011 release of 50/50, Seth Rogen made an appearance on The Late Show in September 2011 to sit down with David Letterman for an interview. Before discussing the film, Letterman asked Seth about his personal life, which includes a fiance, and his trend of making films centered on marijuana use. Seth describes how marijuana is part of his life and the lives of those around him.
Despite making it big for smoking weed in several films, Seth Rogen revealed during a September 26, 2011, interview with Howard Stern that not all of his business partners approve of the lifestyle. He mentioned that prior to doing press interviews for The Green Hornet, Sony actually told him to lay off the weed stories. Seth however had a different approach.
Seth: "When I was promoting 'Green Hornet,' Sony asked me to not tell too many weed stories. And I said, 'I don't think I'm capable of doing that.' It's kind of the only thing I can talk about... I'll admit to smoking weed all the time but I'll never admit to being stoned."
The Craziest Thing Ever
For Seth Rogen, smoking weed does not just become a problem in his many stoner roles, but, as he describes in this interview, once became a real-life problem. In a situation he calls "the craziest thing ever," Seth Rogen tells Playboy magazine of a time in 1998 when he was caught with the substance by the police.
Seth: "When I first came to L.A. I got caught smoking weed on a beach in Malibu and had to go to court. It was the craziest thing ever. I was thinking, We’re in Los Angeles. There are probably 400 people getting murdered at this second, and these two cops are taking an hour to write up my court summons for smoking a joint on the beach. That just seemed so f***ing ridiculous to me."
