Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #8 Harold & Kumar go to White Castle

This movie took the format of Cheech & Chong (two foreign guys who like to smoke weed) and invigorated it with a youthful energy. 'Harold & Kumar' is about two guys on the greatest munchie mission in history. The movie is funny and fast, and most importantly, doesn't take itself too seriously at all.

Although the sequel, 'Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay' upped the ante in terms of pure craziness, it didn't seem to have the heart or originality of the first movie.

And who can forget the legendary cameo by Neil Patrick Harris?

Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #10 Reefer Madness


Okay. This one makes it on the list primarily due to it's historical significance.The film, released in 1936, was funded by a church group and originally went by the title 'Tell Your Children'. The plot revolves around the tragedies that ensue when high school students are lured by pushers to try smoking pot. Consequences of using the devil weed include a hit and run accident, a rape, and a suicide.
   The movie is quite humorous to watch due to the fact that the whole movie is basically one big gob of misinformation. I'm sure this movie did quite a bit to defame marijuana during it's time, but now it's just funny.
