Here’s a fun question: How much money is a Snoop Dogg blunt worth? On one hand, the rapper is perhaps the most iconic marijuana-associated celebrity, so a joint once owned by him is a special thing for fellow enthusiasts. On the other hand, thousands and thousands of Snoop Dogg blunts have found their way into existence over the years: In a 2012 Reddit AMA, Snoop noted he smokes about 81 blunts a day. If he kept that up daily for ten years, that’s over 295,000 blunts, and Snoop’s been smoking for much longer than just a decade.
Seth Rogen and wife Lauren Miller Rogen recounted how the Grammy Award nominee, 50, once raised five figures for Alzheimer’s awareness in true Snoop Dogg fashion as they spoke to Variety for the 10th anniversary of their nonprofit Hilarity for Charity.
“Snoop Dogg once auctioned off a blunt on stage for Alzheimer’s,” Rogen said as Miller Rogen, both 40, noted: “I think it went for $10,000.”
He added: “I think that encapsulates how we are approaching the space differently. If you’re lucky enough to be able to get Snoop Dogg to come perform at your show and auction off a blunt for Alzheimer’s care and research, then I think that speaks very well to an unexpected but effective kind of melding of matters and sensibilities.”
The couple founded Hilarity for Charity in 2012 after Miller Rogen’s late mother Adele was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and they’ve since frequently held events with comedians and musicians to raise money to fight the disease.
Rogen previously told PEOPLE that he was proud of his wife for how she handled her mother’s diagnosis before her death in 2020. “Seeing Lauren talk about it is very impressive to me,” he said.
“How much she talks about it, and how willing she is to talk about it,” Rogen continued. “How open she is about talking about it and seeing how that has given her a lot of control over her situation – that’s been very good, because it wasn’t like that at first.”
Miller Rogen also praised her husband’s 2014 testimony in front of congress to plead for Alzheimer’s funding as “pretty amazing,” adding: “It was just an incredibly moving speech that he made and the response that it got was really overwhelming, so that was pretty great.”
“We get thank you notes from people who are getting care whose lives are drastically changed and every time I get one of those notes … it’s like, ‘Wow, you’ve helped people,'” the For a Good Time, Call… writer and star added.
