Actor, comedian and avid weed-smoker Seth Rogen has stated that the world should stop all of the stigma surrounding cannabis and its smoking.
The 39-year-old told The Guardian that there are a lot of negative and conservative attitudes related to weed-smoking and such a perception needs to be challenged. He made a comparison of attitudes between cannabis and alcohol, asking “why should it be any worse to go to a cannabis site than it is to walk into a restaurant that serves alcohol?”
The media personality is well-known for being a massive advocate and lover of cannabis, appearing in a number of stoner comedies which include The Pineapple Express, Superbad, This Is The End, Sausage Party and more.
He is also the owner of cannabis-related lifestyle brand Houseplant, which offers products such as lighters, ashtrays, carry cases and much more, hoping that the creation of the brand contributes to breaking the stigma surrounding weed. He has also worked alongside projects such as the Marijuana Policy Project, Cage-Free Cannabis and Black Lives Matter, reportedly unfazed by getting ‘too political’ with his brand.
