4/20, An Ode To Cannabis In Films

“I know you don’t smoke weed. I know this. But I’m gonna get you high today. Cause it’s Friday. You ain’t got no job. And you ain’t got shit to do!”

Today is 4/20. Which means a lot in cannabis culture and is a large part of film and music culture as well. From 80s teen flicks such as ‘The Breakfast Club’, to drug-centric films like ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, and not to forget films that defined a generation like ‘Easy Rider’ and ‘Dazed and Confused’, cannabis has played an enormous role throughout the ages.

In celebration of Mary Jane day, here’s a 4 minute, 20 second mashup of some of the best appearances by cannabis in films (brought to you by the folks at HuffPost Culture). Can you name all of these films, or has cannabis affected your memory too? ;)
