How does pot affect a man's relationship?

My SO recently started smoking pot and it seems like he has changed into a different person. He is short, impatient, distant, etc. He smokes at night maybe 5-6 days a week and has for a month now. What affects does this have on a man? Am I just relating his bad attitude for no reason, or could the pot be why?

  • If they don't get it often enough.. they can get a little short and cranky.

  • pot CAN and usually does make alot of people tired, lazy, unmotivated and kind of stupid really. they also become dependent on it (if not physically, mentally) and they will get mood swings when they dont have any. pot becomes the priority.
    it might not effect all people this way, but it effects some if not most

  • Are you sure pot is all he's smoking? He might be doing other drugs; from my experience, pot mellows people out more than anything so if his temper is short, I'd start to wonder if maybe he's doing something else.

  • I agree that pot makes people mellow and go with the flow.

  • yes pot calms people down...thats why alot of people smoke it.. but if they smoke pot and are out then it could be a bad thing, they can be buttholes until they get what they "need"

  • Who know when it comes to pot

  • The pot smokers I have known have been the opposite; very mellow and sort of spacey. I know that drugs can react differently on different people, but unless he's an addict that is jonesing for his next high I think he's doing something other than pot. Is he smoking pot laced with something else?
