The new movie "The End" from the Judd Apatow coterie of Seth Rogen and Jay Bachunel opens this weekend, but it was their third co-star, "The Office's" Craig Robinson who wanted a recent interview with the stars to end.

If you didn't already know, Seth Rogen likes to smoke a lot of weed.

He starred opposite James Franco in the hazy cannabis action comedy, Pineapple Express and he's been open about his love for the sticky icky from the very beginning of his career.

Recently, USA Today sat down with Seth Rogen, Jay Barucnel, and Craig Robinson to discuss their love for weed and the new movie they star in "The End."

One of the questions asked was "how much weed" did they smoke "during the filming of "The End."

Both Rogen and Jay Baruchel have been pretty open about adament about the salubrious effects of cannabis.

When asked how much weed they smoked during the making of "The End," Rogen said, "That's hard to qualify. I can't speak for the whole crew, but a lot I would imagine."

Jay Baruchel chimed in with "a bunch."

Then when asked what their biggest vice was, Rogen said pretty quickly, "Probably weed."

Baruchel said "Prolly weed and hamburgers."

During the whole exchange Craig Robinson stays quiet and even appears put off by the questions, which were lighthearted in their approach, at least judging from Baruchel and Rogen's answers.

But Craig Robinson has actually been arrested for narcotics possession when police discovered methamphetamine and ecstasy in Robinson's car during a routine traffic stop in late June 2008.

At the time, Robinson was already on probation for a drunk driving incident in 2006. He plead guilty to one count of a controlled substance and agreed to take drug education classes.

Even though Washington and Colorado have legalized cannabis for recreational use, it's still considered a schedule 1 drug by the federal government.

With all the joking around during the press junket for "The End," it's hard not to notice Robinson's blasé attitude to all the drug riffing.

That's because he's run into some very real trouble for possession. Maybe next time the interviewers will avoid the subject.
