As if getting an Oscar nod wasn’t a big enough deal already, now they’re loading up those famous gift bags with something that actually has some practical value. In addition to a $3,000 watches, expensive face creams made from orphan tears, and exotic car access, the nominees at the Oscars will be treated to getting marijuana vaporizers in their gift bag.

Even for those who don’t smoke pot, given the relaxed climate of use, and the fact that you now have that vaporizer sitting on your kitchen table, it may spur an actor or two to light up and sample the wares.

However, there are some actors that are just so un-fun and self serious that they’ll probably trash it. Yup. I was thinking about Sean Penn and Jared Leto. Lighten up, guys. Smoke some pot.

TV Preacher Pat Robertson Wants To Legalize Pot http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/tv-preacher-pat-robertson-wants-to-legalize-pot/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/tv-preacher-pat-robertson-wants-to-legalize-pot/#comments Thu, 08 Mar 2012 22:07:13 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=247088 Him being high would explain some of his previous quotes.

During his 81 years on this earth, Pat Robertson has said a lot of stupid things. He blamed hurricanes hitting Florida on gays visiting Disney World. He blamed the earthquake in Haiti on an alleged two-hundred-year-old pact with Satan. He suggested that someone should detonate a nuclear bomb at the State Department. But today, for reasons unknown, Robertson is actually making sense, calling for the legalization of marijuana.

“I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol,” Robertson said in an interview with the New York Times. “If people can go into a liquor store and buy a bottle of alcohol and drink it at home legally, then why do we say that the use of this other substance is somehow criminal?”

Good question, Pat. I blame homosexuals.

Robertson went on to explain that while he feels the war on drugs has failed and is a waste of tax-payer money, he doesn’t support anyone actually using drugs and doesn’t use them himself, a fact that I find hard to believe considering he thinks gays are causing hurricanes. He must have been high as shit when he came up with that. (New York Times)

9 Greatest Movie Weed Dealers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-greatest-movie-weed-dealers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-greatest-movie-weed-dealers/#comments Wed, 20 Apr 2011 20:44:21 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=207949 If you're not a smoker, I apologize in advance for the poor grammar.

It’s 4-20! And you know what that means: Hitler‘s birthday! But since my boss is a huge pussy when in comes to genocidal dictators, I’ll skip the whole “Greatest Hitler Movie” list and focus on the 9 greatest movie weed dealers. If you’re a smoker, now might be a great time to light up. And if you’re not a smoker, I apologize in advance for the poor grammar. Now, on to the dealers.

Big Worm – Friday

Bradley’s a great guy to know if you’re looking for weed. He’s also a huge help if you’re in the mood for bad poetry or Phish records. However, I wouldn’t ask him to remember the combination to your safe.

Dante – Grandma’s Boy

Dante isn’t the smartest drug dealer on this list. But who needs “smarts” when you have the king of the jungle on your side?

Ricky Fitts – American Beauty

Ricky Fitts is a drug dealing teenager who befriends his middle-aged neighbor. Unfortunately, Ricky’s father misinterprets their friendship, and suspects the pair of having a homosexual affair. Wackiness ensues, and by “wackiness,” I mean (spoiler alert) homicide. Man, if anyone needs to chill out and smoke a joint, it’s Ricky’s dad.

Jay and Silent Bob – Clerks

Jay and Silent Bob have appeared in numerous films, but Clerks is still my favorite. It’s not that the other films aren’t funny. But for me, Clerks rings the most true. The characters really seem like two douche bags you might run into while stopping at the Circle K.

Mr. Nice Guy – Half Baked

Mr. Nice Guy isn’t an actual drug dealer, but rather a front for a group of friends selling weed. The group starts selling as a way to raise money to help get their friend out of jail. But their superior product soon gains some high-profile clients, including a rapper named Sir Smokes-a-Lot. This doesn’t sit well with Samson Simpson, an established drug dealer looking to protect his turf.

George Jung – Blow

George Jung might have grown into the biggest cocaine dealer in the country. But he didn’t start out on top. No, he began his career as a lowly weed dealer. See kids, work hard, and you can achieve anything.

Strawberry – Up in Smoke

Cheech & Chong are known for their love of weed. But where do they get their supply? From Tom Skerritt, of course. In the film, Skerritt plays Strawberry, the drug dealing cousin of Pedro (a.k.a. Cheech). He’s a great source for herb, assuming he’s not having one of his Vietnam flashbacks. Veterans’ groups must have loved this scene.

Red – Pineapple Express

Saul might have more screen time in Pineapple Express, but Red is the more memorable of the two drug dealers. Maybe I just have a soft spot for Danny McBride, but any character that bakes cakes for his dead cat’s birthday is A-OK in my book.

None of the other guests would indulge, nor would Maher, which must have taken a huge amount of retraint for the weed-loving host. All of you prudes out there, if you take nothing else away from this video, remember this: smoking grass does not make you see dragons. Check out the clip after the jump...

Apparantly one of those tastes is the sweeeeet sticky icky.In addition to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Portman is now developing a stoner comedy called Best Buds about two female friends who take a road trip to their friend's wedding in order to save her by bringing her weed. It's said to be like Half Baked or Harold and Kumar except in this one the protagonists know what it's like to touch boobs. Between this project and Your Highness with Danny McBride, Portman could emerge as High Times Magazine's "Actress of the Year." Though it's an honor just to be nominated. (Pajiba)

Well, if you want to see him partake of the ganja once more, you can... right now... in the new movie Shrink. The flick, in which Spacey stars as a celebrity therapist who dips his own toes into the deep end, played the festival circuit earlier this year, was met with solid reviews and finally found a home at Lions Gate.  It's available on DVD at this very moment, so before you decide to light up that bong all by your lonesome tonight... remember that your good friend Kevin Spacey is willing to hang out, too. And he can handle his sh*t. Check out the trailer after the jump.
