List Rules Vote up the comedies that make getting high so much more enjoyable.

When it comes to the best comedy movies to watch stoned, there are a handful of cinematic masterpieces that have undeniably stood the test of time. Movies that are great to pair with a little marijuana don't have to be stoner comedies. While classics like Friday and Half Baked are fun enough to watch high, ridiculous films that don't center around marijuana are just as great. Why not something over-the-top goofy, like Monty Python and the Holy Grail or Hot Tub Time Machine? 

Here, you'll find a list of hysterical comedies to watch high. It may come as no surprise that the funniest movies to watch stoned include legends of the marijuana hall of fame such as Cheech and Chong, Ice Cube, and the accidentally hilarious cast of Reefer Madness.

So the next time you find it relevant, sit back with a bag of Cheetos, and check out this premier list of what to watch stoned. All the funny films below are good for a good laugh at any time, but may seem extra hilarious when you're not exactly sober. Vote up the funniest comedies to watch below.
