DALY CITY, CA - APRIL 18: Leaves of a mature marijuana plant are seen in a display at The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo April 18, 2010 at the Cow Palace in Daly City, California.

Every holiday usually has some sort of activity attached to it, and while 4/20’s activity is obvious, we believe a movie marathon is definitely in order.

In honor of this literal high holiday, here are nine films we think you should binge.



This movie may have celebrated its 20th anniversary recently, but it hasn’t aged a bit.


Half Baked

They’re not drug dealers; they’re fund raisers.


Pineapple Express

The entire cast is incredible, but Danny McBride steals the show.


Reefer Madness

Sure, it was meant of a cautionary tale when it was released in 1936, but it’s hard to watch this classic now without laughing histerically.


Dazed and Confused

We have three words to describe this iconic Richard Linklater film:  Alright, alright, alright.

Dazed and Confused - Trailer

Director Richard Linklater's follow-up to Slacker takes an autobiographical look at some Texas teens (including Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey) on their last day of school in 1976, centering on student Randall Floyd (Jason London), who moves easily among stoners, jocks and geeks.


Up In Smoke

If someone writes a list about stoner movies, and a Cheech and Chong film isn’t on the list, does the list even exist?  The answer is “no.”


Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

Obviously John Cho and Kal Penn deliver outstanding comedic performances, but is there a better actor playing himself cameo than Neil Patrick Harris as “Neil Patrick Harris?”


How High

Magic weed gets Method Man and Redman accepted to Harvard.  Hilarity ensues and gives new meaning to the phrase “higher learning.”


The Big Lebowski

In addition to lighting up, we suggest you fix yourself a White Russian (or two or four) as well.
