It's my understanding that the Stoner Fluxx deck has a different back because it's about an Adults-Only theme.
The different back makes it easy to sort out from the regular cards so that when you're playing with your 10-year-old nephew he won't accidently find Weed or The Bong in his hand.
When I (eventually) make my ÜberFluxx deck, I'll put all the cards onto Fluxx Blanxx, with the "weed-themed" cards having a green dot in the corner so I can pull them out before playing with sensitive audiences.
