Conan O'Brien Says Seth Rogen Is 'Almost An Argument In Favor Of Smoking Marijuana'

Comedian Conan O'Brien just endorsed Seth Rogen as the face of recreational marijuana in America. While chatting last Friday with actor Josh Hutcherson (the star of Rogen's Hulu series 'Future Man'), O'Brien took a moment to say how impressed he is with Rogen's ability to smash stoner stereotypes by being both a hard worker and a hard toker.

"It doesn't feel like he's impaired in any way," Conan said. "He's one of those people who's almost an argument for smoking marijuana. He's a very good writer, producer, actor and it doesn't feel like his pot smoking gets in the way of any fashion."

Praising Rogen's responsible cannabis use made Hutcherson a bit squeamish though. "That's not a good message to be saying on television," he said.

But that only made Conan double down on his endorsement. "All I'm saying is that he only seems to become more successful, the more pot he smokes," Conan said over Hutcherson's protests. "That's the only thing I'm trying to say....His mind gets sharper."

Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.' And he's just as unapologetically candid when the cameras are off, I learned after chatting with Crosby over the phone to discuss the premiere of the doc, which opens this weekend (July 19) in New York and Los Angeles. So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
