Actress Rachel True says Rolling Stone must've smoked themselves stupid ... 'cause they somehow left her movie "Half Baked" off their list of Top 10 Stoner Movies of all time!
Rachel -- who played Mary Jane Potman in the cult classic -- was doing some sightseeing around the Grove in LA ... and we asked where she thinks "Half Baked" ranks among the dankest weed movies.
Ms. Potman says she thinks the movie should at least be in the top 5 ... and was SHOCKED "Half Baked" didn't even make their top 10.
Here's the list according to RS:
1. 'The Big Lebowski'
2. 'Dazed and Confused'
3. 'Pineapple Express'
4. 'Cheech & Chong's Next Movie'
5. 'How High'
So ... did Rolling Stone get it right ... or are they smoking entirely too much reefer?
I'm READY to Bring Back 'Party Down'
11/23/2013 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lizzy Caplan says she's NOT the one holding up a possible "Party Down" comeback ... telling TMZ she's ready, willing and able to bring back the catering show ... as soon as someone calls her.
Caplan -- who played Casey Klein on the Starz show -- was at Fig and Olive in L.A. Thursday night when we asked why there's a holdup ... considering the show has developed a pretty impressive cult following ever since it went off the air in 2010.
Despite the fact she's moved on to another big show, "Masters of Sex," Caplan says she's down to find time to get the old 'PD' gang back together -- "I would love to do it."
Ken Marino -- who directed and starred in the series -- has also talked about bringing the show back as a movie, recently telling Rolling Stone, "It was a magical experience. Everybody in front of the camera and behind the camera wants to do it, so hopefully it'll get done."

Rolling Stone's cover story about the Boston Marathon bomber just got the magazine yanked out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, and more could follow ... TMZ has learned.
The omnipresent convenient store is joining the national outrage over the mag's upcoming issue with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and an investigation into his life leading up to the bombing.
A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. tells TMZ it "will not sell the Aug. 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine in its company-operated stores."
There are 1,700 company operated stores -- and another 5,900 franchised stores. The rep says they'll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue.
Yesterday, CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop all said they will not sell the issue either.
Boycotting Our Cover is a
Boycot of the Constitution

Bostonians upset by the new Rolling Stone cover -- featuring Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev -- need to grow up and learn from the tragedy that rocked their city ... according to the magazine's editors.
The editors just released a statement, saying their hearts go out to the Boston bombing victims -- but "the cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's longstanding commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage."
The statement continues, "The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens."
In other words, we're exercising our 1st Amendment rights to investigate a terrorist -- so, stop burying your heads in the sand, people.
As we reported, CVS and the Boston-based Roche Bros. supermarkets have boycotted the latest issue of the magazine because of its controversial cover ... saying it's disrespectful to the victims.
Boycotting Rolling Stone
Over Boston Bomber Cover

The Boston supermarket chain Roche Bros. is also boycotting the magazine -- a rep tells TMZ, "When Roche Bros. learned of the cover for the current issue of Rolling Stone, we chose not to offer that product for sale in our stores. We join with our customers and neighbors in focusing on the recovery of the victims and our community."
Walgreens and Stop & Shop have also boycotted the magazine.
CVS apparently believes the First Amendment has limits ... because the pharmacy chain just announced it won't hawk the latest issue of Rolling Stone, featuring Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.
A rep for CVS says "As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones."
So we gotta ask ...
