List Rules Vote up and add all of your favorite movies to watch when you're high.

Many will argue that any movie gets better when you're a little stoned. But some films have a reputation for being better than others to watch "enhanced." Whether it makes you laugh harder, think deeper, or reflect more deeply on the realities of our world, these movies are a cut above the rest and are the best films to watch stoned.

There are many cliche and stereotypical movies for watching altered (some are even included here) but the best movies to watch high are ones that are made to be enjoyed when you're experiencing the specific high that only weed brings. Good movies to watch high deal with silly situations or weird experiences that are especially funny because of your current state of mind. High movies don't necessarily have to be great films, but here are the ones that are at least entertaining and fun to watch. These films are known for improving your stoned experience and vice-versa, being stoned will improve these films. Featuring many of the funniest comedies of all time, this list includes Pineapple Express, Half Baked, and more.  

From classics like Dazed and Confused, to pretty much anything the Monty Python guys have done, kick back, relax, grab some munchies, and pop in one of these awesome movies to watch stoned. And don't forget to cast your votes below, so fellow stoners know what's up. When you're done, be sure to check out our list of the best weed movies.
