Every stoner's favorite holiday is here. So stock up on munchies now — before your couch swallows you whole after that mega bong rip.

While 420 is a sorta cheap excuse to smoke up, the pot holiday seemingly has risen from the ashes of our high school joint-passing days. Need proof? Just look at all the 420 parties happening around Phoenix this week. Clearly, there's a renaissance going on in the world of weed. And in celebration of this fine day, we're queueing up some of our favorite stoner movie scenes. Which ones did we forget? 

Pineapple Express
"It's like God's vagina."

True Romance
"Don't condescend me, man."

"It's not a drug; it's a flower. It has healing powers."

Reefer Madness
The original marijuana propaganda film from the 1930s is funny, in an absurd kind of way. "Tell your children."

Cheech and Chong
"That's some heavy shit, man."

Walk Hard
"It makes sex even better."

"It stimulates your mind."

Harold and Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay
Who wouldn't want to see George W. get high?

Due Date
Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, and a French bulldog. That's all you need to know.

Super Troopers
"We're going over the border to Canada for some French fries and gravy, sir."

The Big Lebowski
The Dude abides... always. 

Ted "He only had three other batches: Gorilla Panic, They're Coming They're Coming, and something called This is Permanent."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
