Why we call this list a "stoner movies" list

Are they good movies ABOUT stoners, or best movies to watch high? Or are they just good movies for stoners to watch independently of being stoned? 

Great question. I've seen all of them. The way I would describe them; most of those movies reference marijuana often, the good, the bad and the ugly, if there is any. Also reference "stoners" stereotypes often, and that results a cannabis smoker relates to those movies and the type of humor they offer. That's what makes it fun to watch for stoners, more than for anyone else.

No one will be able to answer this question for you but yourself. Some people like watching funny movies, others like horror or even twisted and trippy ones.
