Marijuana movies have existed since before the 1930s, when propaganda films about the melodramatic events that ensue when consuming cannabis were popular. “Reefer Madness” is the most famous of these movies even though some call it one of the worst films ever made. Since the 1930s, marijuana movies have become less about the anti-marijuana movement and more about entertainment and fun. Comedy duo Tommy Chong and Richard “Cheech” Marin are among one of the many people who made stoner films popular in the 1970s and 1980s, so now they are more common and acceptable. In the last decade, more stoner films have come out than ever before, so it’s helpful to see a ranked list of every stoner movie from the 2010s.
First on the list of best stoner movies from this decade is “Sausage Party”, which is created by Seth Rogen who is known for his stoner comedy. Rogen admitted that marijuana was actually involved in the making of this movie, “It actually came from me and Jonah and my wife having dinner together. We started talking about what it would be like if we made a Pixar-style movie about food and how f---ed up that would be and how potentially hilarious it would be. And that was almost 10 years ago, and we've been tirelessly trying to make it ever since then.” “Our Idiot Brother” is another top ranked stoner film because it too was most likely created while under the influence of marijuana. This film is one of the best stoner movies simply because of the cast which includes Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Sterling K. Brown, Rashida Jones, and Emily Mortimer to name a few. Luckily the decade isn’t over yet, so expect to watch more stoner movies like these before the 2020.
