It doesn’t have to be 4-20 for you to kick back, pack a bowl and enjoy a stoner-approved flick.
But with so many options available today, deciding on what to watch can be a challenge in itself – especially when your eyes are glazed over and you’re already struggling to remember your Netflix password.
This is why we decided to make things easier for you by rounding up a list of classic and more unorthodox movies to watch high on Netflix right now.
From documentaries on cannabis to designated “stoner flicks,” here are six Netflix Canada flicks not to puff, puff, pass on.
Mac & Devin Go to Highschool
This 2012 flick stars two leading men of cannabis: Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg as they play two high school students — one overachiever struggling to write his valedictorian speech (Khalifa) and another student who is entering his 15th year of school (Dogg). The movie is classic stoner fare, with plenty of musical breaks and weed jokes that’ll have you laughing at even once the film ends.
Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie
An oldie but a definite goodie, Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie is an OG stoner film that follows the two iconic pot enthusiasts as, for the most part, they simply wander around Los Angeles, engaging in a series of adventures — including driving their neighbour crazy — while trying to score drugs.
In this documentary, stoners are invited to travel to Jamaica with Snoop Dogg — or, as this doc introduces him, as Snoop Lion. Directed by Vice alum Andy Capper, this film follows the legendary rapper as he immerses himself in Rastafari culture and records his 12th studio album, and first reggae, record Reincarnated.
Grass is Greener
This Netflix doc explores the history of marijuana and dives into America’s complicated relationship with cannabis. The documentary features interviews of influential people like Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, and others who share their own opinions regarding the United States’ culture around marijuana.
This 2008 classic follows Seth Rogen who plays a process server and his lazy weed dealer James Franco as they end up on the run after witnessing a murder go down and their rare strain of Pineapple Express is the sole piece of evidence leading violent criminals back to them.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The 1998 cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas follows oddball journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his psychopathic lawyer, Dr. Gonzo (Benicio del Toro), on a drug-induced road trip to Las Vegas for an article Duke is writing on the Mint 400 motorcycle race.
