Seth Rogen invites fans to 'smoke weed' with him at Colorado screening
The Canadian actor inviting audience to smoke marijuana before seeing his comedy The Interview
Seth Rogen, Canadian actor and proud pothead, is inviting fans to smoke marijuana with him before an upcoming screening of his new comedy The Interview in Colorado.
The Vancouver-born comedian and Neighbors star extended the weedy welcome on Twitter. "Hey Denver! Wanna get baked with ME and then watch my new movie The Interview?!" Rogen tweeted Wednesday, adding, "You can on Dec. 8th!"

The 32-year-old also explained that audience members wouldn't just be taking a puff in the parking lot, but "we can smoke weed in the theater," he tweeted.

Colorado became the first state to allow recreational pot sales back in January, but lighting up in public is still prohibited. That means the theatre would have to designate the evening a private event and restrict attendance to adults 21 and over.
It's certainly not the first time Rogen has waved his flag in support of cannabis use. He's made a career playing pot smoking characters in his comedies and he's also a member of the American non-profit group NORML, which supports the legalization of marijuana.
The Interview stars Rogen and James Franco as TV journalists who land an exclusive interview with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and are then asked by the CIA to assassinate him.
Pyongyang expressed anger over the plot line back in June, calling the movie an "act of war" and pressing the U.S. government to block its release or face "stern" and "merciless" retaliation.
Despite the threats, The Interview goes into wide release on Dec. 25.
