How do I help my 20 year old boyfriend who says he hates his life?

I think adult life is making him depressed and we often sleep in on weekends untill 1 or 2 pm. We just eat, smoke weed, watch movies, and he'll go on his phone all day. He doesn't seem motivated to do much and he's often angry.

I have no clue how to help him take his mind off the negative, or to distract him into a different light. How do I help him?
