420 Movies: The Best Stoner Characters Of All Time

420, or April 20 if you're not a stoner, is here. The day cannabis aficionados around the world celebrate yearly has finally arrived -- on a Friday, no less -- meaning squares hoping to grab a bag of Doritos from the local supermarket might be out of luck.

For those who participate in National Weed Day (celebrated on 420 because of the number's connection with marijuana smoking; click here for the 420 backstory), the chances are good that at least some of these characters will be quoted and/or emulated in the hours ahead.

Check out HuffPost Entertainment's list of the best stoner characters of all time -- from Spicoli to The Dude. Remember: please smoke responsibly.
