The top funny movies about drugs feature larger-than-life characters, quick-witted dealers, and plenty of jokes about getting high. This is a list of the greatest funny movies about drugs including everything from Dazed and Confused to Friday to Knocked Up.

From Maui Wowie to Fiberweed, this movie found the funny in every form of marijuana. Pineapple Express is another hilarious movie about drugs. Dave Chappelle starred in the 1998 stoner comedy Half Baked. Other good films featured here include Super Troopers, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
