Best stoner movies of all time
One of the best ways to enjoy your high is to watch a great movie. Whether you’re alone or with friends, getting baked and losing yourself in an adventure is nothing short of awesome. Some movies cater to the stoner experience more than others. So we’ve compiled a list of the best stoner movies of all time for your viewing pleasure.
10 – Reefer Madness (1936)
Our list starts with a movie that wasn’t intended to be enjoyed by stoners, but its hilarious depiction of the dangers of marijuana has made it a cult classic.
The film was financed by a church group whose goal was to educate people on the epidemic sweeping the country: marijuana. In it, a group of high school students is persuaded to try smoking some weed. As a result of their ‘addiction,’ events like a hit-and-run, murder, suicide, rape, and ultimately a descent into complete insanity take place. The film’s absurd characterization of what smoking some herb does to people makes it a must-see stoner movie.
9 – Up in Smoke (1978)
Few names are as synonymous with stoner culture as Cheech and Chong. Up in Smoke was the legendary duo’s first film, and is usually credited as being the first so-called “stoner comedy” ever.
Chong plays Anthony Stoner, a jobless drummer who loves to light up. When faced with an ultimatum by his parents to get a job or go to military school, Anthony leaves the house and meets Pedro de Pacas. The pair’s shared love of weed leads them on a hilarious adventure full of stoner antics.
