22 Great Movies to Watch When You’re High

Here in the days of legal weed, the process of consuming cannabis just isn’t all that cinematic. You stop into a nice boutique, select a product that’s barely distinguishable from a Target candy-aisle find, go home and maybe enjoy doing the dishes a little more than usual before you tuck in for the night. Yet the “stoner movie” genre has exploded from a handful of Cheech & Chong joints and propaganda films right up through the ‘80s to a handful of classics in the ‘90s to the last 20 years of forgettable hackjobs, dramatically overrepresented by Seth Rogen.

Perhaps it’s time to redefine the stoner movie from a story about stoners to one best enjoyed by them. One Reddit user wondered the same thing when they asked r/AskReddit, “If ‘stoner movies’ didn’t mean movies about smoking weed, but instead movies that are fucking amazing to watch while you’re high, what are your favorites?” 

Reddit responded with their best-loved trippy visuals, thought-provoking storylines and hilarious gags most enhanced by the giggle gas.
