1. A person who enjoys the feeling of being high more than not. 2. Usually a functional member of society who can do a bong hit and still function at work or at home. 3. Someone who has to constantly defend their habit of smoking pot to people who think they are potheads. 4. Laid back, usually unintentionally hilariarous people, who have successful lives with jobs and homes and everything. These people rarely progress to using HARD DRUGS (anything other than pot). 5. Someone who believes that anything that grows naturally out of God's green Earth is not an unacceptable item for human consumption. If you have to cook it up, THEN it's a hard drug.

A fairly relaxed person, just sticks to pot, isn't gonna get into some hardcore stuff (druggie or junkie). People generally are okay with pot heads, they don't bother people as much, stoners bother people a little more, and druggies are so drugged up that they are assholes.
Afroman is a well liked rapper who gets fame by pot heads and is thus viewed himself as a pot head
