Five surprise stoner movies to light up your 4/20


2) Grandma's Boy
This film about a 35-year-old stoner video-game tester who is forced to move in with his grandma after his roommate gets them evicted has its fans among stoners, but it's still nowhere as well-known or loved as the mainstream stoner canon. And that's a shame, because it's a damn funny movie. Yeah, it's kind of stupid and crass. But it's also endlessly quotable, and it's worth watching just for the scenes with Dante, the film's pot dealer. Seriously, why is there no Dante spin-off movie yet?


1) Ted
Truth be told, the only reason Ted isn't already considered a stoner classic is because it's too new. We're calling it now: By 4/20 of 2020, Ted will be universally acknowledged as a stone-cold classic on par with the likes of Half Baked. As a movie about a foul-mouthed, sentient teddy bear that spends all of its time getting high and partying, how it could not qualify for the stoner hall of fame? You might as well get a head start and make it part of your rotation now.

Westword Website keeps coming up as "abusive" or malicious site - what's going on with it?

Even under the influence of any intoxicating substance (be it alcohol, marijuana, oxycodone, what-have-you), I still would not find Ted to be even remotely funny.

But stoner jokes are funny and never get old. Westword comment sections prove that.

Cool, and I'll probably check out a couple, but when is westword gonna get the Big Picture??? This plant is NOT just about being a stoner. Love my fellow stoners... most loving peeps on the planet! But there are huge segments of our society that can benefit from this plant & are being kept away by the stoner label media outlets like westword continually reinforce. What about the incredible medicinal aspects of cannabis? Or the tremendous impact hemp can have on our environment & economy?? Has westword written even ONE article on the benefits of hemp... the real reason we're even going through this prohibition nonsense?
