." for stoners, marijuana smoking provides the most profound and foundational element of their personality, structure of belief, vocabulary, mannerisms, topics of interest, and secondary occupations. a secondary occupation is what the stoner may or may not do when he is not smoking marijuana, or alternately engaged in activities which are particularly enhanced by the effects of smoking marijuana, ex: viewing pink floyd's "the wall," sleeping, listening to pink floyd's album " the dark side of the moon" while watching "the wizard of ozz," succumbing to the munchies
