marijuana smokers by name, so I am simply putting these questionnaires out in places where marijuana
smokers may have a chance to pick them up, and just handing them to people who might or might not
know smokers, until this finally reaches you, with me having no idea of the route. In turn, please take as
many questionnaires from whatever source you get this as you think you can pass on to other marijuana
smokers. The more returns I can get, the more revealing this research will be.
I'm asking for about an hour or two of your time. In return, you will eventually know a lot more about
the psychological effects of marijuana, and the scientific community will learn even more (considering
the starting level); hopefully this knowledge will eventually result in more rational attitudes toward

Because most users experience a variety of intoxication phenomena by the third or fourth time they
use marijuana, I selected the cutoff of a dozen uses to define an "experienced" user. As noted in Chapter

experiences people have reported having while stoned. These descriptive statements have
been taken from a wide variety of different people's accounts and it is unlikely that any
single person has experienced all of the things described.
The statements are grouped into categories, such as Vision Effects, Hearing Effects,
changes in Space-Time Perception, and so on. Some descriptive statements are relevant to
more than one such category, but they are only listed under one, in order to keep this
questionnaire as short as possible.
Each statement describes a particular kind of experience, for example, "I can see more
subtle shades of color." The sense of each statement is that whatever effect is described, it
is considerably stronger or somehow different when stoned than i
