10 movies to watch when you’re high out of your mind
After smoking weed, there are a couple of crucial things you need to make the best of your high. Once you’ve gathered your munchies, snagged an ice-cold drink and settled in, you inevitably need something entertaining to watch. Sure, you could just binge-watch the same episodes of The Office or Friends that you always go to, but there’s nothing quite like watching stoner movies while you’re high.
We’ve picked out 10 of the best movies to watch when you’re stoned. Take a look below to make plans for your next session.
1. Pineapple Express
You’re guaranteed to have a blast watching Seth Rogen and James Franco portray two burnouts in Pineapple Express. It’s by far one of the best stoner movies of all time. The sheer amount of ridiculous scenes of characters smoking up will make you want to pack another bowl as you watch.
2. Smiley Face
Anna Faris eating a massive amount of pot cupcakes in Smiley Face leads to one of the most bizarre and hilarious movies you’ll likely ever see. The plot runs off a basic premise of Faris trying to get weed to replace what she stole. However, the way she delivers the overly baked stoner persona makes it worth the trip.
3. Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
A classic stoner tale of getting high and going out in search of munchies is taken to its extreme in Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. The film is laced with plenty of insane weed humor, but Neil Patrick Harris’ caricature of himself as a sex-crazed wacko sells the movie as a must-watch for your next sesh.
4. Reefer Madness
You’ve surely heard someone’s grandma refer to young people smoking weed as reefer madness, but the crazy perpetuations of the plant were pushed further when this film came out. The 1936 propaganda film shows teens getting high and later descending into depravity with scenes involving manslaughter, rape, suicide, hardcore hallucinations and more.
5. Super High Me
If you remember the early 2000s documentary Super Size Me following a man eating only McDonald’s, you’ll want to watch Super High Me. It follows a similar premise, but instead of burgers, it’s comedian Doug Benson smoking weed and analyzing its effects.
6. Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
This movie doesn’t solely focus on weed, but the copious drugs done by Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and the striking visuals that come along with it make for a strange adventure to watch. Gonzo journalism is pushed to its fullest extent, and the hilarious yet sometimes terrifying trips Duke goes on throughout are a classic for any stoner to watch.
7. The Big Lebowski
If you’re a stoner and you haven’t heard someone make some a reference to The Dude, you’re probably living under a rock. Classic crime comedy The Big Lebowski takes you on so many twists and turns, and the countless iconic characters and moments make it a great choice to check out when you’re baked.
8. Cheech And Chong’s Up In Smoke
The most iconic stoner duo’s movie debut is by far their most fun film to watch. It’s an all-time stoner classic, and it’s worth it for seeing the joint the size of a baby’s arm alone. Plus, the jam session at the end is so jarring, you’ll never see Cheech Marin the same way again.
9. Half Baked
Probably one of Dave Chappelle’s most iconic works, Half Baked follows the life of drug dealing in a hilarious way. The film features a group of friends who have to sell enough weed to make bail for their buddy who accidentally kills a horse while high. It may not have been well received at the time it came out, but the absurdity of the plot has earned its place in stoner culture.
10. Dude, Where’s My Car?
If you’ve ever misplaced something while high, you’ll be able to relate to Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott in Dude, Where’s My Car? The stoner pair lose their vehicle and are sent on a mission to find it that involves aliens, a recluse, being kidnapped by an ostrich farmer, a weed-smoking dog and plenty of other weird characters.
