What’s in a name?

A new lexicon is need when referring to those who consume marijuana. In a recent article, The Times refers to younger people who use marijuana as “stoners.” [“State’s pot estimate: joint losing popularity,” page one, Sept. 25.]

Not all people who consume marijuana are stoners, just as not all people who drink alcohol are drunks.
