Is the weed on the show real?
Comedy Central’s Workaholics pushed a lot of boundaries in a culture that’s pathologically jaded. Following three drug-addled underachievers who work for a generic telemarketing company, the show featured rapping wizards, shroom-dosed lemonade, a business trip while tripping acid, and addictions to high-school sports betting.
Throughout the series, the Workaholics trio would often unwind after a hard day of not working by holding smoking seshes on the roof of their perpetually trashed party house. Adam DeVine, one of the show’s co-creators and the actor who plays Adam, the trio’s overconfident idiot, recently appeared on Hot Ones to scarf down buffalo wings while sharing some behind-the-scenes tales from the show’s set.
“A lot of people don’t know that we lived in that house. Like, that was our house,” DeVine said during the interview. “All of season one we were living there. Grips were running cables and setting up lights in my bedroom as I’m waking up… then I’d walk out in my boxer shorts to get craft services in the morning.”
DeVine also confirmed that, yes, the cast would actually smoke real weed on the show’s infamous roof. And as the series blew up in popularity, things, expectedly, got weird.
“Sometimes we’d climb on a roof with a stranger,” DeVine continued. “But then you climb on roofs too many times with strangers and think: This is weird. Is this how I die? Some deranged fan thinks, I could push him off. So we eventually stopped climbing on the roofs.”

Matthew McConaughey says Snoop Dogg swapped fake weed for real weed while filming their new movie
Actor Matthew McConaughey appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday and recounted his experience of “being Snooped,” or unknowingly getting high, with rapper Snoop Dogg in an upcoming movie they both appear in.
McConaughey told Kimmel that his “snooping” occurred in a filmed scene of Harmony Korine’s movie “The Beach Bum,” when Snoop Dogg swapped McConaughey’s prop weed for real marijuana.
“My snooping happened when it was a scene where I’m going to Snoop, I’ve got writers block, and Snoop has the magic weed, all right?” McConaughey said.
“But I go to Snoop and I go to the prop man and make sure I’ve got prop weed,” he continued. “Now, prop weed is not real weed. It’s like crushed oregano and stuff. So we get in the scene, it’s about a six-minute scene. We pass back and forth, and all of a sudden at the end, he goes, ‘Yo, Moondog — that’s my character — that ain’t prop weed. That’s Snoop weed.’ And I went, ‘Oh, you son of a gun.'”
The Oscar-winning actor added: “T he next 9 hours were a lot of fun but I don’t think we used one word in the English language.”
Harmony Korine’s “The Beach Bum” stars McConaughey and Snoop Dogg alongside Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, and singer Jimmy Buffett. “The Beach Bum” doesn’t have a release date yet. It follows Korine’s 2013 film “Spring Breakers.”
