Chronic marijuana use does seem to go hand in hand with a particular personality type, doesn't it? Although to be fair I have known a few chronic (several times a week) users who you probably wouldn't identify unless they told you, the former seems to be the most common type.
What about chronic masturbators and fornicators?
To be fair I think "PhD" students is a pretty narrow, self selecting demographic... ;-)
If Rym's talking about the archetypal "stoner" as someone he avoids like he avoids hobos, I agree 100%.
I am a light-to-moderate drinker of alcohol. People who drink much more than me tend to be intolerable.Marijuana is no different than alcohol in my mind for purposes of discussions like these. I have about the same opinion of both.
I think there's a class issue here, too. Stoner culture is pretty damned common in the lower and lower middle classes, most probably because escapism tends to be more desirable to those groups. Legalizing across the board has impacts for a whole spectrum of the population, not just the most responsible representatives at the "top".
I shall not partake of the marijuana until the feds decide it shall not affect my employment status. Also not until there are good quality controls that prevent it being laced with something evil (like heroine).
