So, you’re cooped up in your home with nothing to do during quarantine…or are you? Maybe it’s time to cleanup the apartment or organize that pile of nonsense you’ve been ignoring for months. Or, if you’re a cannabis advocate like me, it’s time to roll that shit, light that shit and smoke that shit — no judgement from us! As a Seattle resident, I know how difficult it is to get through these times without a little herbal help (it’s better than kicking back with a Corona, right?) So, to get you through your self-isolation, here are my top five stoner works to watch on Netflix!
Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke
A cult classic that will make you laugh no matter how much cannabis you’ve consumed — or how many times you’ve watched it. Netflix Party may be especially applicable to this one as you and your friends may have a lot of inside jokes and enjoy quoting the movie.
Harold & Kumar Go to Whitecastle
Another classic worth a second (or tenth) watch! Does anyone else envy this dynamic duo’s weed consumption while watching this film? If not, you’ll probably get some food envy in between laughs.
Trailer Park Boys: The Movie
Throwback to 2006 when Bubbles, Julian and Ricky came up with the ultimate get-rich-quick ploy. Trailer Park Boys has solidified itself as a cult classic that keeps on giving with its numerous seasons and spin offs, and the movie is the cherry on top of the TPB feels. And while you’re here, why not check out what happened at Randy’s Cheeseburger Picnic this past winter in Seattle?
How High 2
Discovering that your weed is missing is the nightmare every stoner hopes to avoid. So, why not watch the shenanigans of two stoners whose nightmare came to life while you veg on the couch during quarantine? I’d recommend you start with How High, but that one is tragically only available to purchase or rent through Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.
I was deeply saddened to realize I found this show in 2020, three years after it premiered as a Netflix original. If you haven’t seen it before, know that seeing Kathy Bates as a hippie stoner who owns a dispensary in LA is the best thing you’ll ever witness. And I really mean that. It changed me for the better. So, check out this two-part series…even if it’s only for Kathy Bates.
