Reader: I drink instead of smoke, but I'd still rather deal with a stoner than a drunk

A reader comment about preferring stoned skiers over drunk assholes spurred lots of conversation about the distinctions between the two. Some readers rejected both types, while one came down firmly on the side of those who smoke, even though she doesn't personally do so. Here's her take.

Sydney Vee writes:

I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. Even so, I'd rather deal with a stoner. It's a simple matter of how it affects the brain. Everyone knows a mean drunk, but how many mean stoners have you met?
