Pothead exposed, bummed

Regular marijuana user Jacob Franz gave himself away at a recent meeting when a PowerPoint slide that contained the words “hit”, “joint” and the number 420 in close proximity to each other caused him to giggle uncontrollably. “Nice!” he said under his breath between giggles.  He quickly realized no one else was laughing. 

In addition to the stress created by exposing his familiarity with drug culture, Jacob felt a marijuana-enhanced sense of loneliness. He thought at least two of his colleagues would enjoy the unintentional marijuana culture references the slide contained, but they did not. “Billy and Charles should have been cracking up,” Jacob later shared. “We smoked at lunch.” Furtive glances seeking support went unmet.
