We all have our go-to flicks after a cozy smoke session but maybe it’s time to broaden your horizon. Sure, you might have seen these classics but for some of you, these might have been just a little before your time. We’re going to give you a brief rundown of our three favorite movies to watch when you’re stoned!
Dazed and Confused
If you’ve watched a movie before, you’re probably familiar with Matthew McConaughey. You would recognize him from heartfelt movies like Failure to Launch or serious drama flicks such as the Wolf of Wall Street, but do you know where he got his start?
Dazed and Confused follows a group of delinquent teenagers on the last day of their high school experience in 1976. Star football player, Randall “Pink” Floyd has promised to forgo partying until he’s won the high school football championship; however, things escalate faster than that time you ate too many edibles.
The leading cast ends up at a pool hall before joining in on a spur-of-the-moment keg party and things continue to escalate from there. Add in some freshman hazing and a late-night smoke session on the 50-yard line and you’ve got a hilarious heartfelt movie made just for the stoners, and let’s not forget the three most famous words of McConaughey’s career, “Alright Alright Alright.”
The Big Lebowski
As one of our resident writer’s favorite movies, we couldn’t leave this sporadic and timeless classic off of our list. The Big Lebowski casts Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi, with narration and an impactful appearance by Sam Elliot, making this a powerhouse of characters that will have you enthralled from beginning to end.
The film follows Jeffrey Lebowski after he’s been confused with another and more wealthy man by the same name. Lebowski arrives home only to be attacked by gangsters who have infiltrated his home, the two men believe him to be his name-sharing counterpart and proceed to do the unthinkable… they peed on his rug, dude. Lebowski gets called into the wealthy man’s office and is charged with the task of hunting down his wife after she’s been kidnapped and held for ransom by who is believed to be the same pair that attacked him in his home. Following this incident, Lebowski is sent on a ridiculous quest full of crooked Long Beach police officers, a gang built by the porn empire, and eventually takes a psychedelic trip down the rabbit hole.
You might not get it the first time around but if you’re a fan of Pulp Fiction you’re going to love this one.
Even though you’ll find this movie to be a ridiculous tale, a quick google search will lead you to the true events that inspired the writers of Kid Cannabis.
Nate Norman is your average underachiever with a deep love for weed who quickly builds a multi-million-dollar trafficking empire. This was long before dozens of states began legalizing cannabis, which meant everyone went through the underground to restock their stash. Norman decided he was tired of delivering pizzas and found a way to make it through the Canadian border to meet one of the largest growers in North America. After a sketchy trip through the woods bordering the United States and Canada Norman discovers how much money is meant to be made, but just like anyone who has let the money go to their head Norman is in for a rude awakening.
The DEA launches an all-out assault on his empire and Norman begins to lead one of our least favorite government mobs on a grand chase as he continues building his short trips to Canada into wealth beyond any teenager’s wildest dreams.
If you’re in the mood for a heart-pounding adventure, Kid Cannabis is one to add to your watchlist.
