Friday Funny: Seth Rogen - Legalization won't make marijuana any less funny

With films like "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express" on his resume, Seth Rogen easily one of the reigning kings of today's brand of stoner comedies, so it would be understandable if he found the current wave of marijuana legalization around the U.S. troubling from a creative perspective. But Rogen tells CBS News that he's far from worried about the implications of a more pot-friendly culture.

You're one of the vanguards of modern stoner comedy, if that's not too hoity-toity.

[Laughs.] I'll take it.

As society has been progressing, how do you see marijuana's place in comedy changing?

3 Cannabis YouTubers You Should Check Out

In the ever-changing social media landscape surrounding cannabis, video is quickly becoming a key player. A large reason why can be attributed to video streaming platforms like YouTube remaining flexible with their community guidelines, allowing users to post cannabis content on their channel without the fear of repercussions such as the removal of content or account deactivation. Conversely, competing social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook share a history of discriminating against cannabis-related content, thus stifling information sharing and suppressing an entire body of of voices within the community.

Trump Tuesday: Mural of Trump and Putin Kissing Sparks Attention

It looks like the 2016 election is entering the avant-garde.

A mural depicting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin kissing, along with the stenciled phrase "make everything great again," now adorns the back of a Lithuanian barbeque joint, Keule Ruke.

The image has gone viral, but the artist -- Mindaugas Bonanu -- told CNN Sunday that he was mostly unfazed by the international attention his mural received.

"In my life nothing changed, except that now I have full pocket of food coupons to eat in Keule Ruke," Bonanu said.

The restaurant's owner, Dominykas Ceckauskas, requested a piece of art featuring Trump for his wall.

Trump Tuesday: Taco Bowls and Crazy Tweets, Why Donald Trump Will Never Be Presidential

It's pretty safe to assume that if a man doesn't change after the age of 40, he's definitely not going to change by the age of 69. What you see is what you get.

And that's why Donald Trump will not be able to pivot to the center now that he is the presumptive Republican nominee. Trump's demeanor and personality might change for a night when the in-laws come to town, but over the course of their visit, he will eventually revert to his old ways.
