Let's face it, there are a lot of people out there who enjoy cannabis culture for any number of reasons and because of that, 4/20 is a day of celebration for a lot of folks. No one really knows the origin of the 4/20 & 4:20 celebrations but Wikipedia has some interesting background on the matter if you're interested in learning more. If you plan on partaking in the events (Come on, we know some of you are!) or you just enjoy the laughter the culture brings then here are a few games, movies, tv shows and music to keep you busy while you wait for the munchies to kick in.
Weed Farm - Grow and harvest 30 different types of marihuana in your own virtual farm.
Drug Wars - Drug Wars is a text-based strategy game from the 1980s where your goal is to buy low and sell high, and make as much money as you can within 30 days!
Funky Smugglers - Some of the things smugglers try to get through the airport are incredible. There's a spider in grandma's suitcase?! A racketeer is hiding a plunger?! Holy smoke! Luckily, you have an X-Ray scanner to check their clothes and luggage for wacky contraband.
Half Baked - Loaded with some of today's hottest young comedy stars, Half-Baked is the hilarious adventure of three loveable party buds trying to find cash to bail their friend out of jail. But just when the guys have mastered a plan, everything comes dangerously close to going up in smoke!
How Weed Won the West - Filmmaker Kevin Booth (American Drug War) offers this documentary that chronicles the exploding popularity of medical marijuana dispensaries in California and the mixed response from law enforcement agencies. Focusing on the controversial story of Organica, a legal Los Angeles pot club that was raided in 2009, the film also includes insights from a range of medical marijuana advocates, including a former LAPD cop.
Friday - Based in South Central, Los Angeles, this comedy with a strong hip-hop soundtrack features Craig (Ice Cube - “Boyz in the Hood,” “Are We There Yet?"), who manages to get fired on his day off (though he claims it’s through no fault of his own) and spends the day hanging out with his buddy Smokey (Chris Tucker - “Rush Hour” franchise, "The Fifth Element") and trying to avoid his father (John Witherspoon – “Boomerang,” “Little Man” ), who wants him to find another job immediately. Smokey (whose name might have something to do with his tremendous fondness for marijuana) has even more serious of a problem; he was given $200 worth of weed to sell by Big Worm (Faizon Love – “Elf,” “Who's Your Caddy?”), but he ended up smoking it instead, and if he can’t come up with the money by the end of the day, he’ll be in a world of hurt and will put Craig in the same place just for being his friend. Also written by Ice Cube.
a.k.a. Tommy Chong - a.k.a. Tommy Chong chronicles the entrapment and incarceration of the comedy icon from legendary duo, Cheech and Chong. Chong was sentenced to 9 months in federal prison for conspiracy to manufacture and distribute drug paraphernalia through his family business, specializing in handmade glass water pipes, or bongs. The film provides a charming portrait of a counter culture icon set against the backdrop of a War on Drugs gone horribly awry.
Mac & Devin Go to High School - Rappers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa team up to create a modern-day Cheech and Chong. Devin (Khalifa) is a nerd who wants to graduate first in his class to keep his girlfriend happy. Mac (Snoop Dog) is a 15-year senior whose weed obsession keeps him from graduating, until he meets a hot new substitute teacher who won't put out until he gets out of high school. Fate causes Mac and Devin's worlds to collide, resulting in the ultimate stoner comedy with a star-studded hip-hop soundtrack.
Weeds - Weeds exposes the dirty little secrets that lie behind the pristine lawns and shiny closed doors of homes in the fictional town of Agrestic, California.
