The Top 32 Stoner Movies of 2016

22. Urge

Every few years a movie promises the best designer drug ever. In the case of Aaron Kaufman's debut, it's "urge," a hallucinatory sex concoction that frees all inhibitions. But here's the catch: You can only do it once. After that, anything can happen, and in this B-movie, does. Neil (That '70s Show's Danny Masterson, who also produced the film) brings a group of friends to a Long Island party where everyone's doing urge, which is a blue vapor that you inhale through your nostrils. After some fun wanton sex, everyone wants more and decides to eschew the warning. Excessive use, it turns out, leads to violent behavior. Reduced to zombies, the druggies turn on each other. Pierce Brosman (known as "The Man") plays the dastardly dealer who could care less about the mayhem he's created. Talk about urge overkill!
