The 2008 Image Index: Stoners

UP: STONERS This year the chemical bromance “Pineapple Express” (named for a potent strain of herb) took in $89 million at the multiplex, we got hooked on Showtime’s “Weeds” and its dope-dealing soccer mom, and Cheech and Chong reunited for a sold-out reunion tour. When Jonathan Adler is dealing $68 pot-leaf motif Hashish candles and the cast of the 2009 weed-themed flick (“Leaves of Grass”) includes Susan Sarandon, Richard Dreyfuss and Edward Norton, you know the stoner’s stock is high.
