When you think of a stereotypical "stoner" you hardly ever think of a FAT dude (or lady) despite the "munchies" symptoms that so often accompany pot use. In fact, when I was thinking of the most well-known "stoners" I thought of Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Tommy Chong, even Brad Pitt...and ALL of those dudes are RAIL THIN!
So my theory is that pot use speeds up your metabolism (I know it raises your heart rate) and helps you stay thin. I mean, typically when "stoners" get the munchies, they go for fatty, sugary, carb-heavy foods (I know I do!)...and I just think its odd that there is not a stereotype of the "FAT, LAZY STONER WHO EATS TOO MUCH JUNK FOOD." So how do they burn off all these extra calories?? I mean, there's certainly a stereotype of "the lazy pot smoker", but I just don't see it grouped with being overweight.
Anyone have any input on this??
