Ahh, the biggest pot smoking day is on the hazy horizon. If you haven’t hit up your local friendly drug dealer, I’d suggest getting on that very soon. Nothing is worse than 4/20 rolling around and you and your buddies have waited until the last minute to scrape some cash together and deal with the whole, “I’ll be there in 20 minutes, and it turns into two hours before your stoned dealer comes strolling in like he hasn’t been dicking around for the past hour and a half” situation. Damn, sorry to reminisce but writing that brought me back to the early days of high school, take me back, please. That is the strand of weed I’m looking for the “time traveling bud”, come on botanist where you at with that?
Well, since we won’t be time traveling back to better days and if you like to melt into your couch and watch movies when baked, I got the list of the best to watch, for you.
5. Pineapple Express
Get high and watch a movie where people get high the entire time, that is what Pineapple Express does for you. You can’t go wrong with a Seth Rogan and James Franco movie when stoned. They are two of the most relatable stoners in the movie world. No high times movie watching list can be complete without watching these two stumble their way through this film.
4. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
This movie will probably confuse you at times and make you wonder why you’re watching it, but that is what makes it special. It’s one of those it’s so bad, its good type of movies. The only way to ever watch Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro sink their way deep into the world of drugs is to, well, be on drugs too. This movie will take you on a wildly winding path that will probably make you wanna drop some psychedelics by the end, so be careful, or I suggest not to and let the movie take you away.
3. Dazed and Confused
The title says it all here. This is an all-time classic high movie. I’ll even to go as far as to say if you haven’t smoked weed and watched this movie you are living a sad life. You have a great cast in Jason London, Milla Jovovich, Adam Goldberg, Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey. It’s not often any of those will steer you in the wrong direction. So, go get dazed and confused while watching Dazed and Confused.
2. The Fundamentals of Caring
This is probably the most underrated and least popular movie on the list, but let me tell you its fucking hilarious. Paul Rudd is absolutely brilliant in his role of being a caregiver to a witty, sardonic 18-year-old who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Its currently on Netflix and everyone I have suggested this movie too have come back with RAVE reviews. The movie is great even if you’re not high, but who would not want to be baked while watching?
Of all the movies mentioned this one is a bit more on the serious side, but sometimes those are the best types of movies when stoned. Johnny Depp plays, in my opinion, his best role as drug dealer George Jung. The movie is based on real events which always fascinate me more. Depp’s character will have you debating whether you would risk it all for the lifestyle he lives. This is my favorite movie of all-time and I’m utterly biased in putting it number one, but it’s my list and if you don’t like it let me have it in the comments section.
Now, go enjoy your 4/20, smoke a shit ton of pot and watch all these movies. I promise you will have no regrets by the end of the day.
