    What, to you, is the difference between a stoner and a pothead? Or is there any difference?

    To me, a stoner is the average toker. Your average group of smokin' friends. You like getting stoned and hangin with your friends, just having a good time.

    But a pothead...I don't like. When I think of pothead, I think of those smokers who spend all their free time smokin, with not a care in the world about their responsibilities, who'd blow all their extra money on weed. The lazy, stereotypical ones.

    Stoner is a compliment, pothead is an insult. That's the way its always been.

    I take offense to pothead

    there are never any pots on my head when people call me that

    so therefore there is no just reason to call me that

    Yeah i agree...

    Stoner = Someone who smokes a lot. But smokes intelligently. Still holds a successful life.

    Pothead = Someone who smokes their life away. Unintelligent smoker. With no achievements, goals, nothing. Just spending ever dime they have on weed.

    burnout its basically a pothead in retrospect isn't it

    i considered someone a burnout once they are selling random shit just to get bud

    Well I sell random shit to get money but not to get bud, and I guess I'm Jay Matix's definition of stoner and not Wintersweet's lol. But I'm really gonna slow down because I'm not making enough money to keep buying weed like I do.

    i dont consider pothead a insult, i think a pothead is just someone who smokes weed everyday and knows more about weed than most people, and i think a stoner is someone who smokes a lot but not everyday, usually just on the weekends and on special ocassions, just my opinion

    um well i dont like stoner because thats like saying "i smoke weed only to get stoned so im a stoner<i>er</i>. and i dont just like the high of weed, so im not that. and pothead i think is a little insult-like, as if they have "amotivational syndrome" like on those stupid above the influence commercials.

    i much perfer "cannabis smoker", maybe "smoker"(but everyone may not, what about the vaporizer hitters?) or im cool with "head" or "toker" something like that. even "weed-smoker" i could do...

    but thats just me.

    I'm neither. I don't define myself that way. I'm a hard worker, I bust my butt in one of the biggest and best buffets in America. I put in 10 grueling hours today. I'm a scholar, reasearcher, historian and author. I'm a guitar player, a poet, a writer and public speaker. I'm a former high school wrestler and a former Marine Corps Tank Crewman. I'm a Christian, a son and a friend to many plus I'm a son of the living God. Don't call me a pothead or a stoner.

    they're both the same to me. Neither one bothers me unless it's supposed to put me down or something. then i'd be more concerned about why somones trying to insult me than some words.
    oh, and a burnout isn't necessarily someone who gets high. Burnout's just a term from someone whos 'burnt out' from doing something waayy too much and losses thier life to it. at least thats my take on it.

    So you're saying that a "pothead" is a person you dont like, because they spend their extra time smoking, and extra money on bud? You guys are just putting a lable on these people. If you dont like people who act like that you dont have to talk shit about them. just dont hang out with them.
