With favorable attitudes towards recreational weed and pro-legalization laws on the up-and-up in this country, the tired stereotype of marijuana users as a dreadlock-ed Indigo children double fisting Doritos and tie-dye shirt is rapidly fading. More and more, as weed becomes normalized, we're all realizing that weed smokers are normal, functioning everyday people like you and me; business people, doctors, athletes … shit, even kids.

It's a trend that's increasingly being reflected in entertainment and celebrity culture, both of which not only depict, but glamorize the marijuana lifestyle. Thanks to Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa, Miley Cyrus, the Broad City chicks and hot Mary Louise-Parker in Weeds for that.

Now, spurred on by these pioneering media giants, a new generation of weed-themed TV shows has cropped up to further destroy the stoner stereotype. This is a big ol' deal, because prior to that past few years, weed's only starring role on TV was the reason someone's high schooler was rebelling against their step-dad.

Robert Thompson, director of Syracuse University’s Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, explained to Variety that weed's role on television has really evolved since the anti-pot a stance of stalwart old shows like “Dragnet” in the 1960s.

“Television was never good at pushing the envelope — it didn’t do any Vietnam shows until the Vietnam War was over, it didn’t reflect the women’s movement in any way until much later — but it was always good at licking envelopes,” he said, crediting medical weed with the subsequent legitimization of pot we're experiencing today. “Even though there aren’t that many states where it’s [completely] legal, once it’s legalized somewhere in the United States, it really does a number on the whole sin aspect of it. Those are the envelope pushers and then pop culture was ready to lick those envelopes by their normalization of it.”

With normalization comes the dissolution of stereotypes.

Krishna Andavolu, who hosts Viceland’s “Weediquettetold Variety many of the show’s stories fly in the face of stoner stereotypes that have long conjured images of Cheech and Chong look-a-likes. You know; California-types named Chrysanthemum and all that.

“What I found with this one particular story about kids with cancer is that it’s not Cheech and Chong stuff,” he said. “When you peer into people’s lives affected by marijuana, especially medical marijuana, it’s life-or-death stakes. It goes against what you would expect.”

Look no further than this 70-year-old woman who smokes about a truckload of weed every week and thinks it makes sex better for evidence of that.

Drake Sutton-Shearer of digital pot platform Prohbtd Media, is capitalizing on the media's newfound interest in broadening the definition of a typical pot smoker. He says that his company's mandate is for "content and programming more mainstream, progressive, and entertaining than the 'wake and bake' stereotypical stoner content."

It has to be; they currently partner with giants like Roku and Apple TV, companies who understandably want to associate themselves with the sleeker, sexier, more intelligent realms of the pot world. Apple TV isn't going to host a Prohbtd show about tie-dye shirts and pizza rolls, for example (although we'd totally watch that).

“As a business, we help cannabis brands market themselves and help tell their stories,” says Sutton- Shearer. “When we came to the industry, we said, ‘Holy shit, there’s no voice for us, for millennials.’ What about the 91% of consumers who partake but there’s no place for them to go?”

MTV is tapping into this exact question with their new show "Mary + Jane," the tall tale of two twenty-something best friends who run an all-female weed delivery service in Los Angeles. Instead of taking a "Pineapple Express" view of stoner-dom, the show's creators have elevated what it means to work in the marijuana industry by centering the storyline about perfectly well-to-do chicks who look more like HR managers than drug lords.

“If you’re looking back at the days of that sort of grimy head shop with glass bongs, that stuff still exists but there’s also a more upscale world,” Deborah Kaplan co-creator of "Mary + Jane" says. “Do you want a shady guy or a cute girl showing up with your weed?”

“As weed has become more accepted, it’s not just the stoners anymore,” "Mary + Jane"'s other co-creator Harry Elfont adds. "We’re seeing all kinds of characters and aesthetics fall under the weed umbrella.”

There are a ton of upcoming TV shows in the works that explore the same idea.

"High Maintenance," HBO's new web series that's based on the original 2012 version, follows an unnamed pot deliveryman as he peddles his product to new clients each week. Each episode, the deliveryman has a different experience with his New York City clients, leading him (and you, the viewer) through some of the city's most glamorous, and hilarious locales. From the clip below, you can tell that his weed-smoking clients are anyone but who you'd expect:

"Humboldt" is a proposed new crime drama from Sony TV ("True Detective," "Mr. Robot"). It'll star John Malkovich as the head of a peculiar crime family, and it'll tell the story of a town that subsists on the weed trade (cough, everywhere in Colorado, cough). It's not been approved for production yet, but if it is, it'll be a kind of Sopranos-esque drama that gets at weed's gritty underworld. Murderous mayhem, not men with munchies, is kind of a new look for stoners, no?

And finally, there's "Disjointed" a Netflix Original multicam sitcom starring Kathy Bates as the middle-aged proprietor of a pot dispensary. It's set to be the first fictional show to ever zero in on the hilariously bizarre world of marijuana consumerism; a glance into a world we're becoming increasingly familiar with but still know very little about.

Hopefully, these existing and proposed shows make it clearer than your eyes after Clear Eyes that the media's pot aesthetic has expanded on TV.

As Darren Roberts, CEO of MG magazine, says: “The majority of the public and I know that the perception is changing. With legalization rolling across the country, the media is helping change that stigma.”

We can't think of a better way to do that than to sit back, zone out, and do nothing in front of a screen.
