5. See The East Village Other, January l-15, p. 6. Consider only the following
possibilities of sampling bias: EVO readers do not represent marijuana smokers in
general; EVO readers do not represent even New York area marijuana smokers, the EVO
reader who is sufficiently motivated to fill out the questionnaire doesn't represent all EVO
readers; all EVO purchasers do not represent all EVO readers, some EVO readers (none of
which sent in the questionnaire) do not use drugs; and so forth. We use this survey only as
rough corroborative evidence. (back)

found in "Cats. Kicks and Color," by Harold Finestone, in the anthology edited by
Howard S. Becker, The Other Side (New York: The Free Press, 1964), pp. 281-297.

12. Jean Cocteau, French artist, writer, and filmmaker, 1891-1963, was addicted to
opium in the 19205; he wrote a book about his experiences, translated into English as
Opium: Diary of a Cure (New York: Grove Press, 1958). The bodily effects of opium are
superficially similar to heroin in some respects, although considerably weaker. Heroin is,
of course, a derivative of opium.

so you'd circle the Very Strongly category. Thus you would
be saying that you can't experience (or haven't experienced) this when you've been just
stoned, or fairly stoned, or even when strongly stoned; but when you're very strongly
stoned or maximally stoned you can experience the change in color perception.
It may be that you've experienced a particular effect at several degrees of "stonedness,"
but what you're rating here is the minimal level of stonedness you must be to experience
There is one other category on the "How Stoned" scale, marked LSD. You are to circle
this category only if you have experienced that effect after having taken one of the very
powerful psychedelic drugs like LSD, DMT, DET, mescaline, peyote, psilocybin, or STP.
Thus there will probably be a number of things described that you've never experienced
with pot but have with one of the more powerful psychedelics (if you've had any of the
more powerful psychedelics).
There are a few questions where the two scales "Frequency" and "How Stoned" don't
apply, and space is left for a descriptive answer.
There are a number of experiences that occur when stoned for which the opposite also
occurs frequently; e.g., sometimes colors may be more intense and sometimes they may
be duller. A bracket has been put in the left-hand margin whenever two questions are
linked this way. Thus, you might find colors get brighter sometimes at a minimal degree
of Very Stoned, and also that colors get duller frequently at a minimal degree of Just.
Finally, space has been left at the end for you to describe any effects you get from being
stoned that haven't been mentioned in this questionnaire. In making up this questionnaire
it was attempted to mention everything that people may have written about as happening
while stoned, but some things have undoubtedly been missed, so this is your chance to
complete the list!
Please rate the statements as accurately as you can. Whenever you feel that the way the
statement is phrased doesn't quite fit your experiences, feel free to write in an explanation.
If a statement makes no sense at all to you, put a ? beside it and skip it. It is understood
that many of the experiences of being stoned are difficult to express in words!
Answer this questionnaire while straight, and when it is complete, seal it in the attached
return envelope (do not put a return address on it!) and mail.
The envelope is already addressed and stamped.
It is so commonplace and trite on psychological questionnaires to say "Thank you" that
I hesitate to say it, but l really do appreciate your filling this out!
