Stoner films and series

Light one up and watch these.

Only contains movies that feature pot at least somewhat prominently. Movies that are about other types of drugs won't be included either.

This list is still far from complete, but I want to add some comments to every movie which takes time. Also, the order is pretty random as of now.

Don't expect your average stoner comedy. This is in fact a pretty serious drama film, and while some pot plants are shown, you won't actually see any good smoking scenes.

Do not watch this movie unless you are getting high! While it's called horror, it's actually never really scary. Very cheesy performance and cheap props and effects.

This is a pretty good crime/drama series that has some good comedy moments, and of course it's about that beautiful herb. Lastly, Mary Louise Parker who plays the main character is a pleasure to look at.

Director: Dylan C. Brown | Stars: Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Mike Epps, Teairra Mari

Votes: 6,154

Don't expect a good story or anything, just lots of weed being smoked and a role for semi-professional weed smoker Snoop Dogg. At the start of the film you are informed that this flick should not be watched unless you've toked up, which is good advice.

While this may look cheap at first glance, the stories and humor of this series do not disappoint! Lots of pixellated toking and 420-references here. Furthermore, there are many, many pop-culture references if you like that kind of thing. Also enjoyable while sober.

The comic "Bluntman and Chronic" is based on real-life stoners Jay and Silent Bob, so when they get no profit from a big-screen adaptation, they set out to wreck the movie.

Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith), the two sympathetic stoners we know from movies like Clerks (I+II), Dogma, Mallrats etc, set out for Hollywood to stop a movie about them from being made, because well, people are insulting them on the Internet because of it. Lots of weed references here, and some great humor suitable for toking up to.

Pot-head Jeff, who lives at home, has to do a chore for his mom but gets way off track due to a mysterious telephone call he got that morning. This is not the typical mindless stoner comedy, but a pretty decent drama film with some funny moments.

The original stoner buddy movie. Cheech & Chong get in some weird situations and unknowingly smuggle a van made entirely (...) out of marijouana across the border from Mexico, while being pursued by the cops. Personally I think it's a tad slow, but amusing enough after toking up.
