Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, TV shows, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

Guess we have to note here, however, that this week’s MERRY JANE is a little different than usual because, really, this week itself is extremely different than usual. With the COVID-19 virus essentially ceasing outdoor activity as we’ve known and smoked in it at present — there are no new theatrical movie releases to report, for example — we’ve added some extra recommendations in our stay-home-and-smoke-hard categories.

Streaming-wise, that includes the anime Altered Carbon: Resleeved; the true crime documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness; the stand-up special, Bert Kreischer: Hey, Big Boy; the scare series Motherland: Fort Salem; and the original movies Big Time Adolescence and Blow the Man Down.

For getting high and wigging out to vintage cult flicks, our picks include the Snoop Dogg fright fave Bones; the Andy Kaufman robot comedy Heartbeeps; two very different, but similarly insane biker movies, Hellriders and Pray for the Wildcats; and Munster, Go Home, a collector’s edition of the TV monster family’s only big-screen adventure, featuring audio commentary by Rob Zombie and the guy who played Eddie Munster!

In terms of reading material, Women and Weed: How the Green Rush Is Changing Our Lives by Elana Frankel is a fired-up font of information, while Dodged & Burned: Seminal Rock Photography 1976-1984 by Brian Shanley offers a frontline view of musical outlaws totally unhinged.

Fresh music to puff and pass to is on hand now from The Weeknd, Zebra Katz, TOKiMONSTA, and Eye Flys.

And ICYMI, there are no theatrical movie releases this week! Stay home!

That said, let's go straight — but not "straight" — to this week's fresh-rolled and smoldering recommendations.
