7 great marijuana scenes in movies

Categories: Lists
To celebrate our feature story focusing on the legalization of medical marijuana, we've compiled some of our favorite weed-centric movie scenes. From Tarantino's Jackie Brown to Linklater's Dazed & Confused, here are 7 clips:

Jackie Brown
Bridget Fonda's character in this Quentin Tarantino classic mostly just lounges around on the couch smoking weed while all the main characters try to stay alive. This earns her a mild lecture from Samuel L. Jackson's Ordell Robbie, which she answers with the ultimate stoner argument.

Easy Rider

It's the mother of all stoner movies, and perhaps most famous for the campfire scene in which Peter Fonda (as Captain America), introduces Jack Nicholson (George Hanson) to his first doobie. "This is grass," Fonda says. "You mean marijuana?" Nicholson says. "Lord have mercy, is that what that is? Let me see that." Fonda gets him to light up, and Nicholson and Dennis Hopper start in on a long conversation about UFOs. Fonda says Nicholson should smoke some more in the morning: "It gives you a whole new way of looking at the day."

After graduating from Oberlin College James is disappointed to find that his parents will be unable to help him financially through grad school. Instead of backpacking through Europe he applies for a job at Adventureland, a shitty amusement park that is perpetually playing Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" (the film is set in the 1980s). Though he has a limited amount of weed to get him through the summer, James decides to cheer up his coworkers (played by the dude from Freaks and Geeks and the chic from Twilight) by surprising them with pot brownies. The buzz is harshed when some guy gets angry upon discovering that one of the games is rigged. Thankfully his boss saves the day by going nuts with a baseball bat. It's all followed by a heartfelt stoner makeout scene.
