To the editor:
First off, let’s get this straight: there is a difference between stoners and occasional marijuana smokers.

A stoner is one who lights up the reefer regularly, and would not be “thinking they are having an elaborate philosophical discussion when in reality they are laughing about juvenile things and attempting to eat soup with a fork.” A stoner would probably be too stoned to even make the soup, and would be just chillin’ to his or her favourite music.

As far as creativity goes, have you ever heard the musical stylings of Bob Marley, Janis Joplin, Nirvana or Jimi Hendrix? All of which are legendary artists that would not have been the same without some harmless fun with narcotics.

Okay, so maybe not harmless, because they are all dead, and surely their drug use had something to do with that " but in their prime time they shined!

Then there are your users who are still hitting the drugs and letting the creative juices flow such as Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Snoop Dogg. So the moral of the story is: if you want to be a legend, do drugs!
