Seth Rogen has likened smoking weed to wearing a pair of shoes.

The 39-year-old actor is open about his marijuana use, and he’s compared his love of weed to wearing shoes.

He explained: “It’s just a tool we use to make our experience more palatable, and some people need those tools a lot more than others. For me it’s like shoes. For you it might be like sunglasses. Not everyone’s the same.

“If someone doesn’t need to smoke weed? Great. It’s the same as someone telling me they don’t wear glasses. ‘Mazel tov! You don’t wear glasses. I do!'”

Seth first started using weed to curb the side side effects of his attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

His dad Mark said: “We had him on a strict diet that helped keep him in balance, but it wasn’t 100 percent. Marijuana finally made his cells relax.”
