Being a Marijuana user aka "Stoner" is part of our shame-based cultural belief system labeled apon pot users by non-users. Although being called a Stoner has it's glory with others of the same kind. It's when the outsiders try to label you, "He's just a stupid stoner", "Low life"..."Pothead"...is when you start to feel the flames from the outside world. I kinda look at it from a Black person's point of view. It's okay for someone in the same race to say "What up (N word)". But when It's said in a negative way from the outside. It's a whole new term. I just want to clear up the bad "stigma" that ALL potheads are stupid, worthless, lazy, have no feelings & careless. I do think alot of this is ignorance and the system brain washing are youth. Have you ever delt with nagative vibes from the other side?
