Every holiday usually has some sort of activity attached to it. While 4/20’s activity is obvious, a movie marathon should definitely be added to the agenda.

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

 

Friday

Next year will mark the 25th anniversary of this stoner classic, and it hasn’t aged a bit.

 

Half Baked

They’re not drug dealers; they’re fundraisers.

 

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 hysterically.

 

Dazed and Confused

There are only 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 in a 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, fix yourself a White Russian (or two or four) as well.
