If You're A True Stoner, You've Definitely Had One Of These 10 Posters In Your Room

There's no better sign of a stoner than the person's posters. In college, you learn to go off cues and the best way to tell if someone smoked the ganja was by what was hanging on their concrete walls. By senior year, you got to a point where just one poster, one tapestry, one record was enough to invite the inevitable question: “hey, wanna blaze?”

Now, I'm not saying all stoners are the same, but we all have basically the same tastes. I have yet to find someone with an affinity for Mary Jane without an accompanying affinity for “Half Baked” and Bob Marley. Of course, there are the classics and the newer signs, ranging from The Grateful Dead to Lotus. It's all the same idea, though: people with good taste and hippie-style decor. So whether you're still in college or just reminiscing about the “good ol' days,” enjoy this comprehensive guide to the 10 posters every stoner had in his or her dorm room.

Jimi Hendrix

I always found that people with Jimi Hendrix posters were known to be heavy smokers in high school. They have a pretty extensive knowledge of rock and roll and great guitarists that can only come from years of listening to records in their parents's basement.


 The Grateful Dead

Ah, the iconic dancing bears. A seemingly innocent poster of cute bears to the sober mind, but a glowing sign of jays and bong hits to anyone remotely aware of the iconic band. You know you're really in the presence of stoners when they've got the dancing bears tattooed.


 “Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas”

You may have never seen the movie, but you've most definitely seen Johnny Depp sweating with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth in the middle of a hazed casino floor. It's the most recognizable stoner movie since “The Big Lebowski,” and a poster is usually a sign its owners are up for more than just some weed. They'll probably ask you to drop some acid with them in the woods next weekend.


 Bob Marley

There is nothing more quintessential than the Jamaican king. I don't know if it's possible to listen to the melodies of Reggae's most influential artist without lighting up. He's the father of the bong, the king of the ganja, and the brother of the pipe. A poster of him is about as obvious as a statue of Christ in your Christian friend's house. No question need to be asked.


The Kramer

No one appreciates “Seinfeld” more than a stoner and no one appreacites Kramer more than a really big stoner. The loveable neighbor hits the soft spot for goofy kids everywhere and the main reason we're willing to put up with Jerry Seinfeld's voice.


“Half Baked”

Dave Chappelle, tye-dye and edibles. Is there any better example? One of the first true stoner movies ever to grace our screens has become a staple dorm room item, and for good reason. There is absolutely no way a kid has this poster up and hasn't enjoyed the green herb.


“Fast Times at Ridgemont High”

This is most definitely what we'd call a “cult classic.” Treading the line of a very prestigious category along the likes of “Dazed and Confused” and “Donnie Darko,” it's just one of those movies in which you really appreciate the actor for what he is. That's right, Sean Penn, we know you were just a stoner.


Endless Summer

This was usually present in the “Cali stoner” dorm room. This is the kid who lived in California, wants to live in California, or is just so high all the time they think they're in California. There's nothing wrong with dreaming of smoking a dubbie on the beach and hitting some waves. It's the stoner dream, isn't it?


Che Guevara

The Marxist revolutionary was the staple poster for those “intellectual smokers.” You know, the kind who started smoking in college and couldn't get enough of those philosophy and 19th century Russian history classes. They were always full of information and usually pretty generous with the bong.


 Notorious B.I.G.

You don't listen to Biggy without a blunt in hand; it's just common courtesy.
