Reddit Announces Plans To Host The Munchies, A Weed-Themed Awards Event

By: Rachel Krause / April 11, 2013

Here are some things that stoners might need: Netflix Instant (specifically, every season of “Law & Order: SVU”), a soft blanket, assorted snacks, a nap, a dog to pet, definitely a glass of water. But … a stoner awards ceremony? Isn’t that a little … ambitious? I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Alas, the weird world of Reddit and its stoner subreddit, r/trees, has decided to inaugurate The Munchies, “an annual feel good event for 4/20.” No word yet on what the categories will entail, but they’ll all be user-submitted and then voted upon. And if you have any questions about this event’s legitimacy, consider this: the whole thing is endorsed by legendary pothead Snoop Dogg Lion himself, and he’ll even be there to announce the winners by video on — yup — 4/20. I’ll be tuning in… that is, if I’m not too faded to remember. [Betabeat] [Photo of a guy smoking weed from Shutterstock]
