Neither. Successful productive people prefer stimulants.
Seriously though, I’ve yet to meet someone who smokes a good amount of pot whose life and accomplishments I would want to have. Alcohol in large amounts isn’t good either. Maybe I’m old no-fun guy but I drink until I’m relaxed then stop. Usually that’s 1-2 drinks. Don’t like being drunk or hungover
Although successful people can smoke weed occasionally, it does seem as if the ones who smoke it basically everyday are definitely less successful people in general.
I had become good friends with a guy who always smoked it, would even do it on lunch break at work in his car. But the more I hung out with him, the more of a bum I realized he was. He would always talk crap about people, nothing too personal, just for his own entertainment basically. By doing that he would encourage others around him to do the same cycle of negativity.
His wife, he was always chirping how she's a fatty and annoying. When I hung out with him I realized he was a cheap and a broke person and this was a turn off--asking me to borrow money, not paying his share on things we split, telling me to pay for gas when we went to a sports game when I payed for both tickets. We went gambling once and he just asked to borrow money. You know, the typical cheap guy who uses his friends when he can then trying to justify it because I'm rich. Like whaaat. Dude won 500 bucks then lost it in 10 minutes. No wonder, he smokes weed everyday.
In conclusion, The Weed was just a microcosm of his unimpressiveness.
