Stoner - 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.
