“Pineapple Express,” believe it or not, is actually a meteorological term. It indicates strong moisture currents off of Hawaii that extend over the Pacific to the North American coast. In the mid-latitudes of the world, suffice it to say, water vapor is a big deal. Nowadays, the term is more directly associated with the 2008 stoner comedy of the same name, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. However, the film got its name from the strain, which I guess got its name from … Hawaiian water vapor.
