She wouldn’t smoke weed with "Seth Rogen", but in the early 70's "Barbra Streisand" smoked up with "Inspector Jacques Clouseau", and then went out to eat together, they went to a restaurant and started to riff on, like should they have steak (flavored) ice cream. Streisand told this story in 2012 during a promotional event for "The Guilt Trip", which she starred in alongside Rogen, she said:
It was funny at the time. It's not funny now since you're not high.
The fictional french police detective "Inspector Jacques Clouseau" was portrayed by Peter Sellers in the original "The Pink Panther" series.
Peter Sellers (8 Sep 1925 - 24 Jul 1980)
The legendary english actor and comedian, born "Richard Henry Sellers". He was his parents' second child, but he never met his older brother (Peter), and as his parents called him Peter so often, they eventually just decided it was a nickname, which Sellers later took to showbiz.
Sellers performed in "The Goon Show" series (BBC Radio Comedy) and played an uptight attorney who falls in love with a stoner in a 1968 movie. But in real life, Sellers was more alike to the #Stoner character. Swedish actress "Britt Ekland" said he introduced her to #Marijuana on their first date in 1964, and they got married 10 days later. So it must’ve been some good stuff.

The use of edibles in religion and for pleasure has been around for centuries, but what is less known is that it wasn’t a popularized recipe until "Alice B. Toklas" (Apr 30, 1877 – Mar 7, 1967) in the 1950s published a recipe for "Hashish Fudge" and just like that, the iconic stoner treat had its start in the United States.
Sellers plays a single man of about 35, a lawyer with a great respect for appearances, who finally agrees out of politeness to marry the girl he's been dating for several years. The "Movie" concerns a stuffy, joyless lawyer, played by the great Peter Sellers, who falls for a disarming hippie and has a total shift in mindset after eating Toklas’ weed brownies. It’s basically a love letter to pot brownies.
It is one of my favourite "THCinema" series, it's really hilarious and very 60s, I really liked it. The story is good, a regular square guy falls in love with a hippie and it changes his life. Watch the below video to see how she transforms store-bought powder into "The Food Of Paradise".

Sellers & Weed
When Actor Peter Sellers was asked about his attitude towards #Cannabis, at a charity meeting in London of the Organisation for Rehabilitation and Training Aid (1969), he said to more than 400 young people, he smoked #Pot and told the meeting
I have used marijuana with groups of friends and there's no harm in it, so long as it doesn't lead to other things. I mean it's better than drink. The idea of waking up in the morning with a hangover... Some of the hard drugs are bad - LSD is a frightening thing. But marijuana is all right and court sentences for using it are ridiculous. Weed heightens the senses and one of the best ways of using it is when listening to music. You can hear music as you have never heard it before. Of course, I don't go around turned on all the time, but I use it occasionally.
"Inspector Jacques Clouseau" died of a heart attack while working on the script of a sixth Pink Panther outing. He was 54 years old.
