Top Ten: Stoner Foods

So the word on the street is that food tastes better when you're stoned. I'm just guessin' though -- I would never engage in anything illegal like smoking The Pot! Swearsies. I hit up the Internet -- and a few of my favorite potheads -- to bring you this list of Top Ten Stoner Foods. Some of my old smoking buddies research subjects were even high when I interviewed them, which I think lends this blog post a lot of authenticity. Man.

One thing I learned about the topic of stoner foods: People really care about it. There are entire blogs dedicated to stoner foods. And a cookbook, too. There are scads of articles and forums dedicated to the discussion of what foods are the best to eat after marijuana consumption. I even found an article in which the cast of The Big Lebowski talks turkey about the best stoner grub.

The results? A list that includes sweet and salty, healthy and decidedly-less-healthy, hot and cold, fast and slow foods. My stoner buds did share two universal truths with me: 1. Munchies are great, but eating kills your buzz, so catching another in the post-munchie frenzy is always in order. 2. To quote a friend: "Oh man. The thing is ... everything tastes good when you're stoned! Just eat."
