We’re not saying they are stoned, even if some of these folks happened to be photographed at a High Times event or a hippie bonanza like Bonnaroo. But that dopey-eyed, obliterated, squinty-face caught forever on camera is always a hoot. Here are some of our favorites we’ve captured out in the clubs over the last few months.

This is what a smoke ring looks like after a few hours hanging with these dudes.
Girl pothead, about to smoke everyone else under the table?
High fives. Get it? Ba-dum ching!
Two DJs trying desperately to remember which way to Kanye West.
High Times veteran Rick Cusick. Nuff said.
Macaulay Culkin stumbled into Andrea Grant’s pro-cleavage poetry reading, looking happy to be there. Then again, he kind of always looks like that.
