Pineapple Express writer-actor Seth Rogen, quoted in WENN:
The actor says, “There were some internal discussions. The reality being that Judd is somewhat against marijuana use and I think it should be legal.
“We didn’t really want to make a strong overall message about it. We kind of wanted to leave it to the audience.”
Pineapple Express producer Judd Apatow, quoted in Time:
“Seth and I always argue whether or not this is an anti-pot movie,” says Apatow. “To me, it clearly is. Most of the film is people trying to murder these two guys, them trying not to get murdered, and it’s all because they’re smoking pot.” He pauses. “Seth thinks that’s too subtle.”
