My bus driver back in school was an alcoholic....
I've noticed one problem is that there is this perception that people who smoke weed are under the influence of it 24/7 and never stop smoking. It's like saying everyone who has a beer is drunk 24/7, except nobody really assumes that. Most people enjoy a drink once and a while yet it is assumed they are not an alcoholic. Anyone who smokes weed, no matter the frequency, is assumed to be a 24/7 burn out.
