High Times has its own annual award ceremony, the Stony Awards, which recognizes excellence in marijuana-related media. The Stonys have been held every year since 2000, except for 2004, when the judges wandered off to 7-11 for some snacks and couldn't decide between Cooler Ranch Doritos and Sour Cream & Cheddar Lays.
Most of the categories change from year to year (slight tangent: I am 100% in favor of the 2005 award for Best Queer Guy going to Ted Allen. He rocks.), but a handful remain constant.
The debate as to how cannabis effects the user's mind is currently unsolved, but I really have to wonder about anyone who declares Jennifer Aniston "best actress," no matter how you categorize it. (Okay, maybe best actress on Friends. Maybe.)
