'Rough Night' Star Jillian Bell Opens Up About Her Disastrous First Time With Weed

Jillian Bell recently tried marijuana for the first time and it did not go well. While filming the comedy 'Rough Night' - which opened last weekend - Bell decided to unwind off set one day by hanging out with Mary Jane.

"I decided at 32 to try marijuana for the first time," Bell told James Corden yesterday. "I had a girlfriend come into town and we had a night of going out and having pasta. And I watched the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe."

So far so good. But when her friend dozed off for the evening, Bell started having a rough night in real life. "My eyes went wide and I was very nervous. And I decided to turn on the TV to calm myself down."

But that plan backfired when the movie she watched triggered an existential guilt trip. "The only thing I could find was 'Wolf of Wall Street.' And it was the scene where Leonardo DiCaprio is doing a certain drug off a woman's bottom. And I was like, 'I'm one of you! That's me. That's me now.' That's the Catholic guilt."

So if you're a first timer, maybe put on something a little more mellow -- like 'The Big Lebowski' or 'Dazed and Confused'.


When marijuana edibles hit Canadian cannabis dispensary shelves later this year, you can expect them to be taxed based on how strong they are. Canada's recently released federal 2020 budget proposes to tax marijuana edibles based on the amount of THC they contain. THC is one of the active ingredients in cannabis and the one most associated with producing the plant's signature high.
