What percentage of “successful” people (happy with their career, life, finances, etc.) do you think smoke pot?
More specifically, what percentage of people who’ve achieved a lot – in any field, but I’m especially curious about the arts, since I always thought that was an area in which you need sharp thinking at most times (I guess I’m naive) – do you think smoke?

I found this in the paper the other day:

What are your beliefs about the afterlife? How does the approach of death, or the idea of it, affect you? Read more...
