How many of you smoke weed

Wondering how many stoners are in IB. For those of you that do, does it negatively affect your work performance?

Personally love to get absolutely blasted with the boys.

Used to smoke almost every day to de-stress but recently stopped. I have to say it's made a significant impact on my work performance. Mind feels much sharper and its a lot easier to get up in the mornings. Everyone has a different reaction to it though.

OP curious to know the type of bank you work at (BB/MM). I'm still in college but smoke. Used to be a daily stoner but have been slowly weaning myself off to completely sobriety. However I do plan to pick it back up, ideally keeping it to once a week, like a weekend treat. How do you manage smoking and staying productive? Also does your company not drug test regularly?

Legal here but don't smoke anymore. I find it effects my cognitive ability for at least the day after I smoke. It makes me feel retarded and slow even when I'm no longer high.

+1 to that, I never liked smoking since I felt slow and stupid for several days afterwards. Even my worst hangover only lasts 0.5 day and can be mitigated with tylenol.

Went through a phase in college and quickly realized that it made me stupid and lazy. I'm not a neuroscientist but I can say with absolute certainty that it made my brain operate at like 60% speed.

The lingering taste and munchies were nasty. I was roomies with the biggest pothead in school for two years though and figured out how to build an awesome gravity bong. Hilariously, I never even used it, but by v.4 it got rave reviews.

Eh, not a big fan, makes you kinda lazy in the head. The Ol' Hofmann Special is my jam, tho.

Smoked some in college, don't smoke anymore bc I genuinely don't like the feeling. Also screw smoking if edibles or something like that are available. Smoking just fucks up my throat and lungs and makes me cough for days. Now the booger sugar tho.....

Smoked my way through college. Have had to naturally cut back due to working a lot, but wfh makes it easier if I feel like it.

Edibles and those vape pens are the way to go if you ask me. Smoking the flower is cool sometimes but it causes a ton of phlegm in my throat. Either way, I have yet to feel it stunt my performance at work. I actually smoke before I go work out. Lifting while high is actually one of the more peaceful things out there.

Used to dislike weed until I learned that not all strains are the same.

Now I smoke once or twice a week to either help with my migraines or for recreational usage. I actually found a strain that makes me more productive. I love that creativity bump for my research.

Btw if you run slightly high, it's absolutely amazing.

Smoke almost every week, but limited to weekends / right before bed. Probably not a great habit to have, but has definitely picked up this year with the boredom of being in NYC during the COVID pandemic
