List Rules Vote up the most hilarious comedies about drugs, dealers, users, and addicts.

After the serious 1936 film Reefer Madness caused unintentional hilarity, movie-makers knew that drug comedies could catch on with audiences. 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.

What films will you find on this list of the best drug comedy movies? Cheech and Chong defined stoner comedies with the 1978 classic Up in Smoke. 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.
