A stoner is a peaceful, relaxed, nice guy/gal who likes to smoke the funky 'erb! Stoners are usually seen in small groups of 3 or 4 and sometimes in pairs. They generally have slightly bloodshot eyes (or red eye) when baked, and always wear a little smile. A stoner is not to be confused with a pothead. Potheads are a lot more dependant on weed and aren't as chilled as stoners.

Stoners enjoy socialising and laughter and being with their friends. They typically wear an open shirt and a t-shirt. They often own a pair of canvas shoes, well worn in by the numerous stoner adventures the wearer has been on! Stoners generally walk slowly and are very rarely pissed off, tending to be peaceful and relaxed. They are nearly always broke and when the next paycheck comes their way, it all gets spent immediately on the herb. Stoners generally don't mind this as their money has been spent on weed and they recognise that the best things in life are free, except mary jane which is worth all their money! They are also known for frequently using words like "dude" and "bro" and are often in need of snacks like doritos and a drink of something.

Stoners will always have their closest friends but when they meet fellow stoners, even if they have never met before, it's like meeting family. Stoners have a beautiful union and truly see eachother as one global family. They all tend to have a mutual distrust and dislike of their opressors such as government and the police (or the "pigs").

An individual who smokes or consumes marijuana habitually and ritualistically. Stoner and Pothead are often conflated in everyday discourse, but the two words are actually very different in meaning.

Pothead is a derogatory term used to describe one who is essentially addicted to, and obsessed with, marijuana. This dependence manifests in their appearance, thought processes, behaviors, and speech.

A Stoner, however, is one who defies the "prototypical" wastrel image proposed by mainstream society. These individuals enjoy cannabis on a daily basis, but are clandestine about its use, maintaining this sense of secrecy because of the stigma attached by the hegemonic majority.

These individuals cherish the time and money spent enjoying their holy herb, and will partake in its use with a complete stranger, recognizing a certain, universal connection between Stoners. A relaxation of mind and spirit seems to typify the Stoner; consequently, they unanimously hold an appreciation for ethereal and abstract ideologies. They are generally warm-hearted, introspective, and viscerally imaginative.

One primary misconception is that the Stoner is unintelligent and lazy. While this characterization might be appropriate for a Pothead, Stoners are a stark contrast. There is no doubt that they are predominantly Type B personalities, but such qualities that supposedly suggest “laziness” are merely a testament to their innate ability. The ease with which the Stoner skates through school, classes, and the cognitive tasks of everyday life, despite continuous intoxication, suggests a very high intelligence. In fact, many Stoners can be classified as gifted underachievers: that is, students who perform very well on standardized testing (ie; SATs, ACTs, GREs) but fail to perform to their potential in the academic arena.

Despite their noncompetitive natures and tranquil demeanors, Stoners care deeply about a handful of personal, core values. They will not openly express their innermost beliefs readily, but when they do, their code of ethics is almost always virtuous. They are nonconformists of thought and idea, and as so, choose creative outlets for their renderings. They may not adhere to the hegemonic script of society, but eventually they will find success, and find happiness, unlike “the mass of men.”
Stoner 1: Dude, wanna skip French class and light up?

Stoner 2: Sure man. I mean, I got like a 91 on the last test, so I can just chill till midterms.

Stoner 1: Sick man, we'll take the backroads and listen to Biggie.

- One that is inclined to smoke cannabis on a habitual basis to achieve a continuously desired mindset.

- The Stoner is naturaly a mild mannered individual who enjoys sharing the cannabis with others so they may also achieve the desired mindset brought on by smoking the natural herb.

- Stoners dedicate copious amounts of their income twords purchasing, growing and/or collecting paraphernalia to provide the means to smoke more cannabis.
That dude, Richard is a total stoner.
He's high so often that I don't think he knows what it's like not to be stoned.

Someone who is just generally laid back and enjoys everybodys company and loves to smoke. Usually loves rock music and weed.
A stoner is someone that's played guitar for 2 hours straight and can't remember any thing they played due to smoking too much weed and killin their memory. (like me)

A stoner is a person who does recreational drugs, most commonly marijuana. He/she is usually a passive, analizing person who rarely has bad intentions although he or she may hurt someone but only out of innoncence and distraction. People link stoners with dumb individuals or losers; this is not the case for the most part.
A perfect example of the explanation above is me and my group of friends. We all smoke weed, some more than others, but at the end we are all good people. Me and my stoner friends all perform well in school; I got 1200's in my SAT and I had 2 bowls the previous night to relax before going to sleep. Other drugs that I've experimented with include Shrooms(twice) & Ecstacy(once) I have a steady relationship with my girlfriend (another stoner) and we enjoy being with each other always, with or without weed. For those who hate on bud because you believe it makes you a lousy driver, I've been driving for 1 year and I've driven high before and never gotten into a car accident. I dont recommend you hotbox while driving, not because you'll be high, but because the cops might stop you. Drugs affect each person differently, just know your limit and have FUN
