Times are stressful right now and we’re all looking for different outlets to help us pass the time. Luckily 4/20 is here. Usually, during 4/20 you will catch me kicking back and watching a bunch of movies with a joint or two to accompany me.
In the spirit of 4/20 (and since everyone is stuck inside), I made a list of movies and Tv shows that are perfect for today . Some of these movies might not be considered “stoner” movies but I like to watch them when I partake in the Devil’s lettuce, so I figured I’d share them with you. Happy 4/20!
