What are you, people? On dope? Top 5 memorable pot scenes of the '80s
Tampa Bay - almost 5 years
Pot movies of the '80s? To be honest, I'm proud to say that stoner comedy was a phenomenon that largely missed our decade. Cheech and Chong were coming off their high when the decade started, and the Judd Apatow era was still 20 years away. But, with today being 4/20 and all, I rolled together what I could find and I'm ready to light a match to today's top 5 list. Special thanks to the gang at the Stuck in the '80s Facebook page for filling in the blanks. My short-term memory isn't what it used to be, I guess. TOP 5 MEMORABLE POT SCENES OF THE '80s: 5. ZAPPED (1982): Bet you forgot about this one. Scott Baio plays a nerd who gains telekinetic powers after his super-growth formula for marijuana explodes. Between co-stars Willie Aames and Scatman Crothers, more pot is utilized in this flick than anything short of Pineapple Express. 4. CHEECH AND CHONG'S NICE DREAMS (1981): The official stoners of the seventies were coasting on the same plot over and over again when they played ...
