Former Sony co-chair Amy Pascal will have to wait a little while longer to move into her posh new production office; according to sources at the company, the office’s previous occupants, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, smoked so much weed in there that the smell has become pervasive, and Pascal reportedly wants it cleaned up before she moves in.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pascal, who recently landed a new production job at Sony after a private email leak ousted her from the top spot, is working in a temporary office while she has her new digs repainted in an effort to drive out the smell. A “frequent visitor” at the offices told the outlet that the smoke from Rogen and Goldberg’s first-floor office could be sniffed out from as high up as the third floor.

Another source told THR that Pascal’s re-painting effort had more to do with her desire to customize her office space rather than battle Rogen and Goldberg’s pot fumes. However the source conceded that the smell of weed had saturated the office carpet.

Rogen has made no secret of his love for herb; ahead of the December release of his now-infamous film The Interview, the actor invited fans and friends to smoke up with him at the film’s premiere in Denver, Colorado, where the drug is legal for recreational use.

In November, following the legalization of weed for recreational use in Alaska and Oregon, Rogen tweeted that he hoped to eventually smoke weed in the White House.
