Rumor has it the pot stench left behind by Seth Rogen in his old office is apparently so strong that former Sony Pictures head Amy Pascal will have to wait before she can move in.

Pascal, who stepped down in the wake of the Sony hack fiasco, is transitioning into the role of an on-the-lot producer, and one of the perks of the new job is the office of her old boss that she had always wanted. However, it was previously the offices of Seth Rogen and writer-director Evan Goldberg (a frequent Rogen collaborator) and the two reportedly smoked enough marijuana in there that the smell "seeped into the flooring" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The walls are being repainted in order to eliminate the smell, and so Pascal can put her own touch on the workspace. For the time being, she'll be working out of a temporary office until the job is finished. According to THR, Rogen and Goldberg weren't in there long enough to leave a lasting impression, though officemates in the same building have long complained of the smell. "I guess I could say I have a terrible case of I-wanna-smoke-weed-all-day," Rogen once told Elle.

Sony had no comment on the story, but Seth Rogen, always tactful on social media, took a potshot (sorry) on Instagram, roasting (sorry, again) the THR story by calling the publication "irresponsible" for publishing a story that was "untrue" and calling the smell of his weed a "stench," adding the hashtag "#myshitssmellsgood."
