2. “Pineapple Express” (2008)
Get ready for a wild ride with “Pineapple Express.” This action-packed comedy takes you on an adrenaline-fueled adventure with Dale and Saul, an unlikely duo caught up in a dangerous predicament after witnessing a murder. Throughout their escapades, expect side-splitting humor, high-energy action scenes, and, of course, some potent strains of cannabis. To match the movie’s title, create a tropical-inspired menu with pineapple slices and mango, coconut shrimp, and refreshing cannabis-infused fruit smoothies.
3. “Half Baked” (1998)
Prepare to have your sweet tooth satisfied with “Half Baked.” This stoner comedy follows the hilarious misadventures of four friends who venture into the world of cannabis-infused baking. Witness their attempts to raise bail money for their incarcerated friend by selling a line of pot-infused treats. For this movie night, indulge in infused brownies, cookies, and gooey caramel popcorn to get fully baked.
4. “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” (2004)
Craving some late-night munchies? Join Harold and Kumar on their epic journey to satisfy their hankering for White Castle burgers. Along the way, these two buddies encounter absurd and outrageous situations, all while indulging in their fair share of cannabis.
