List Rules Vote up the best movies to watch when you're stoned.

When it comes to the best animated movies to watch on weed, it's no surprise the list is a lengthy one. For whatever reason, marijuana tends to have the ability to transform ordinary animated films into moving masterpieces that delight the mind for hours at a time. Simple movies you watched once when you were a kid may take on a whole new level of hilarity - or meaning - when viewed in an altered state. And animation intended for adults can seem extra mesmerizing or hilarious when you're less than sober. 

If you've never tested this theory for yourself - and should ever find yourself so inclined - this list of animated films to watch when you're stoned will not leave you disappointed. Here, you'll find everything from adult-oriented animation to kids movies that take on a whole new level of magic after a few hits from your favorite bong. 

Be sure and vote for your favorites to guide other stoners. And feel free to add any great options that may be missing.
