It's a good time to be a stoner in the USA. Each election cycle, an increasing number of states are getting more liberal with marijuana laws. One day soon, we may all be able to proudly walk to the beach or the park while holding a joint or vape.
Until then, silly laws can't stop Miamians from indulging in a little harmless weed in the privacy of our own homes. After all, the greatest danger of lighting up with friends is being high and hungry!
What you need during these desperate times is a greasy, delicious meal to sate your cravings. In this arena, Miami restaurants don’t disappoint. Consider your munchies handled!
5. Hawaiian pizza at Casola’s
Would it really be a stoner-foods list if pizza weren't included? Pizza is a staple munchies food, and Casola’s elevates the concept. Though you can’t go wrong with any of the flavors, the Hawaiian ($5.79 for a slice) is a favorite given the salty-sweet flavor combination of pineapple and ham atop cheesy goodness.
3. Everything quesadilla at Los Verdes
One of the most popular items at Los Verdes, the everything quesadilla ($8.99) really seems like it has everything. It’s stuffed with steak, chicken, and bacon and features not one, but three sauces: pineapple, green, and pink. It's cheesy, gooey, and delicious, especially if you’re experiencing the stage of munchies when only carbs can save you.
2. Ms. Cheezious' Southern fried chicken and waffle melt
Thanks to food-truck-turned-restaurant Ms. Cheezious, stoners near and far can enjoy the glory that is the Southern fried chicken and waffle melt ($10). Basically, it’s a buttermilk-fried chicken breast sandwiched between two waffles with American cheese. What really sets this melt apart is the country gravy and syrup for dipping. It’s the perfect flavor profile of salty and sweet, coupled with the joy of being able to enjoy a breakfast favorite for dinner.

1. My Childhood Dream at Lokal
My Childhood Dream ($12) is a doughnut burger thought up by Lokal’s owner when he was a kid working at his dad’s doughnut shop. The creation features a sliced doughnut for a bun topped with a seven-ounce beef patty, American cheese, and candied bacon. It really should be called My Stoner Dream.
