‘Neighbor’s’ Seth Rogen Talks Pot and ‘House of Cards’ In Alzheimer’s Senate Speech [VIDEO]

Funnyman Seth Rogen is not joking around when it comes to Alzheimer research. The Neighbors star recently marched up to the House of Cards, A.K.A the Senate, to seek support for his cause. Of course, he did manage a few weed jokes while he was in D.C.

Seth Rogen might seem like, and even admitted to being, a “lazy, self-involved, generally self-medicated man-child,” but that doesn’t stop him from fighting for what he believes in. The Superbad star took to Washing this week to raise awareness for Alzheimer research.

Rogen opened up his testimony with what else, a pot joke:

“Thank you for the opportunity to testify today and for the opportunity for me to be called an expert at something because that’s cool. Yes, I am aware that this has nothing to do with the legalization of marijuana. In fact, if you can believe it, this concerns something I find even more important.”

However, the tone of the speech quickly changed when Rogen went on to give an impassioned plea for Alzheimer's research, telling the few Senator’s on hand:

“I started dating my wife Lauren nine years ago when her mother was almost 54 years old. It was during this trip, the first time I met my now mother-in-law, that Lauren first admitted to herself and then to me that something was off with her mother. Soon after this trip at 55 years old Lauren’s mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. After forgetting who she and her loved one were, she forgot how to speak, feed herself, dress herself, all by age of 60.The situation is so dire, that it caused me, a lazy, self-involved, generally self-medicated man-child, to start an entire charity organisation.”
