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 Showtimes 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 stoners stock is high. James Franco, driving, and Seth Rogen in "Pineapple Express."
