I read this article - was pretty good. What you think?

STONER SMART, OR STONER STUPID?
The smart stoners, :tommy: are the ones who use cannabis as a creative tool to enhance their lives. They know cannabis can be an asset if used intelligently. Bob Marley, Willie Nelson, Louis Armstrong, Ken Kesey, and Stephen Gaskin are among the many cultural icons that fall into the smart stoner category.
Ever since the Partnership for a Drug-Free America began putting ads on television targeting the use of cannabis by children, more kids have been using marijuana. Obviously, the more you talk about marijuana in front of children, the more curious they are going to be about it. Telling them that it's bad is not going to be much of a deterrent. In fact, many kids just naturally enjoy the outlaw thrill of breaking rules set by adults. Right now, it's easier for kids to buy marijuana than it is for them to buy a six-pack of beer because the cannabis is sold out on the streets, while the beer is sold in licensed and regulated outlets.
The solution is not to put more negative advertising on television, but to stop talking about pot in front of children. All that's needed to accomplish this is for the adults to establish a code for cannabis, one that the children don't understand.
We also have to ritualize the use of cannabis and turn it into a rite of passage. That way, when our teenagers reach the proper age, they can be inducted into adulthood by being awarded with the keys to the cannabis code. And what is the "right age?"
That varies considerably. I like the standard set by Stephen Gaskin in his book Cannabis Spirituality. "...there's a ceremonial place," writes Gaskin, "when a teenager takes up as much space as a grownup, eats as much food as a grownup and works as much as a grownup. They participate in creating the adult community vibe. It isn't fair at that point to treat them as children. I think some teenagers can be damaged by being excluded from important ceremonies."

Stupid stoners may feel part of the hemp revolution, but they are, in fact, part of the problem. If we want to convince the straight world cannabis is not a dangerous plant, we must use the plant wisely, not irresponsibly. We have to be stoner smart, not stoner stupid. So, which side of the coin do you want to be on? The same side as Bob Marley, Louis Armstrong and Willie Nelson? Or do you want to be stoner stupid?
The stupid stoners wake and bake on exam days. They think being high is an end in itself and strive to be stoned as often as possible. When a stupid stoner shows up at your house, they usually feel it's their duty to compulsively decimate whatever stash you have immediately and save nothing for later. I'm sure we all know a few of these people. The stupid stoners are the people Cheech and Chong made fun of when they created the most widely accepted stereotype of a pothead.

Good article.

Unfortunately, I cannot in good conscience label myself 'stoner smart'. I'm not stoner stupid, but I'm right on the fence probably. I've waked and baked when I had exams... albeit easy exams that I knew I would pass. If I have a lot of weed, I like to get baked a lot during the day, but when I'm running low I always do my best to conserve my stash to prolong its existence. Likewise, there are also times when I like to not get high but once or twice a day. So... like I said. A little from column A, a little from column B. I wish I could be all stoner smart, but until I land a job and start supporting myself I will have to say I'm located in the middle.

It's like one of those circle-graphs in geometry. One circle is STONER SMART. The other is STONER STUPID. Then in the middle there's a smaller circle, comprised of people falling into both categories. That's where I am.

I'm more of a smart stoner than a stupid one, even though I'd say I belong in the middle category.

Yea, I've been keeping it to weekends and maybe indulge in the weekday if nothing is going on for the whole time i've been smoking. I consider myself a smart smoker.
Heck, even if kittyloaf, even if you did do all those things in the stupid stoner catagory, you're at Johns Hopkins, so people can't say shit.

i would say i am stoner smart...i have smoked everyday for the past two years and before that at least 1-3 times a week for another 2 and a half years....yet i was salutatorian of my high school graduating class and i was voted best of show in art countless times at countless shows (the creativity part)...i also have a 3.9 GPA at a very well known university in missouri and i am on my way to getting a degree in chemistry and either going into research or med school...pot doesnt make someone stupid unless they let it take over their lives and unless they are stupid to begin with...if used properly it can improve concentration on one thing at a time and enhance creative minds...i have found it to be a great way to relax after studying for or taking a big exam and a great way to meet new people and explore new things like music and movies in a different way or dimension...basically...its all in the eye of the beholder (needless to say i often come up with my deepest thoughts when i am high...) ;)

I guess I'm in the middle as well. I do well in all my classes and everything, and make sure I set a good example, but I have smoked before exams only to put myself in a relaxed and concentrated state of mind.
