Stoned In Suburbia is a social history film, examining the change in people’s opinions to cannabis over the past 50 years.

Discussing the impact of the 60’s sexual revolution, the Hippie movement, the emergence of the Punks right up until the modern day.

  1. Well good for them grandmas if cannabis makes their lives better why not let them use it how every they want.

  2. The thing all these ageing stoners have in common is the glint of lucid youth in the eye and a big sense of mischevous humour. Even (or especially) the granny from Royston Vaysey. You couldn’t make a better ad for dope than this. If the stuff didn’t make me miserably psychotic almost every time i smoke it i’d still be merrily doing it myself. I remember great, funny and deep times on spliff, before it started turning me crazy whenever i used it. If it doesn’t harm you do it. If it gets you less than happy cut it out immediately and learn, but real quick and without going back, how to gracefully decline the invitation to puff when someone offers you. Weed was a hallucinogen way before skunk appeared — i remember it being like acid sometimes. Skunk must be treated with respect.. unless you’re Howard Marks..

  3. should i smoke some before watching?

  4. lol the old lady talkin about a gravity bong

  5.  Anyone who gets stoned is idiot. End of. If you think I’m talking nonsense, all you have to do is Google ‘risks of cannabis’, ‘risks of marijuana’ to see why. If parents let their kids do it, they’re incompetent and negligent as parents.’ to see why. If parents let their kids do it, they’re incompetent and negligent as parents.

    • YOU’RE WRONG.

    • you seem really smart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try learning a bit about the world before such radical opinions, if its stupid why do you concern yourself with telling people (who obviously like it) that? Grow the fuck up

    • this is b.s.. canabis at a young age is a dumb idea, yes.. but as an old lady or man, it is way better than popping some pills cooked up in a lab.. pots a flower. coffee is addicting. hell, cake is addicting..if you look at it like narrow minded people look at things. i think it should be legal if your 21 or older..

    • HAHAHA! God, you bigots on this site are so damn funny. You are clearly, EXTREMELY, mis-informed. Please don’t comment on a documentary you don’t like/never watched. You just look foolish. Especially when your “facts” from google (which is as reliable as wikipedia…) are incorrect. Keep your pathetic opinions to yourself, thanks.

      • Actually, most studies that were not paid for by anti-drug campaigns, and the government (American, British, Russian etc.) have found that Marijuana is not as bad as the original tainted studies show. The cancer studies didn’t test out those who work in factories/mines and those who use cigarettes also.

        No permanent brain damage.
        No overdose.
        No definitive proof of cancer in humans.
        No true addiction, the idea of chemical dependency on marijuana is a farce. Though you can become psychologically addicted (meaning you can make yourself believe you needed, no tremors, no vomit… just a little sadness) 
        again… etc.

        This being said, people under the age of 18 shouldn’t smoke because it has been show to alter brain chemistry of those going through puberty.

  9. Hillarious is funny watching these people talk about such a controversial subject. Watch this video. 🙂

  10. Cute ladies with very positive and warm attitudes. Nothing wrong here.

  12. “unified field”

  13. “unified field”

  14. You dont get dopey if your inteligent and open minded, you can freely and with ease examine our universal interconnectedness, that everything is one, and the one is conciousness, brain function does not create conciousness. pot helps understand the true nature of reality. by the way science has recently figured this out and have dubbed it “the univesal field” this was einstines dream but he could never quite figure it out mathimatically but it now has. People around the world are now waking up to this paradgmn at an accelerating rate.

    • Actually all science currently points to brain function creating consciousness. Seems you got a little dopey.

    • totally agree man psychedelics connect you the the universal feild far before science could explain it. its good to see both of them start to come together finally.

      • Science never explained being ‘connected to the universal field’ since no serious evidence suggests anything like that exists.

  15. first off dope can be any drug… dope = dopey, so your telling me that you dont get “dopey” after smoking weed.

  16. Dope to stoners is Heroin.
    Dope to people who don’t use drugs is Weed.

    • Actually, it’s more of a regional thing. For example, some people call a can of soda different things in different regions (like ‘pop’).

  17. this movie is so annoying! DOPE is HEROINE not cannabis! stop calling it dope!

    • umm yeah you are pretty mis informed/ cannabis been round for over 10,000 years heroin a little over a hundred. weed has been refered to dope much longer than heroin has. and from heroin users dope means a fix. a drug, a hit. it does not have to be heroin something to dull the withdrawals could be dope. like im going to get a dope fix.

    • I think it’s quite dependent on where you’re living. I’ve always figured that dope is applicable to quite a few drugs, the most likely being weed or heroin.
