I approve, it makes the experience more enjoyable.
I disapprove of drugs entirely.
I approve if it's legal.
I approve if it doesn't affect others' experience in game.
Other, please explain in reply.
OTHER. I don't give a fuck and people can do whatever they want. Drugs don't actually make you into a retarded fool, it's a nuanced issue and playing with people who are drunk is a lot more annoying. Which brings up the issue of which drugs you're talking about, they are as varied in effect as they are in selection. Alcohol is a drug that is just given a domestic status in our culture, but it kills and damages more people per year than every illegal drug combined.
If someone is nodding off on heroin and falling asleep at the keyboard or being a drunken idiot it's annoying, but otherwise people in a better mood doesn't really bother me. You'd be surprised actually by the number of people who don't advertise their vices like an annoying teenage pot head who use illicit substances and actually lead productive lives and successful lives. Cultural taboos let us all feel better about ourselves at the expense of others.

He's saying that both require the game to be paused. Both are a hindrance to your continuous flow of gaming time, and can/might/will annoy you.

Back in the day I used to refuse to tank without at least a beer in me and a second open on the desk. Nowadays I smoke weed in order to cope with LFR. Other than the occasional tunnel-vision I get, which I also get while sober, I probably pay more attention than when I'm not smoking. Don't know if that's a heightened sense of fear that others will judge me for being baked, or the natural effect of the drug. Also I have a personal vaporizer so I can fire it up if a run starts to turn sour.
Honestly I can tie whether or not I had a subscription to WoW the last couple years to whether or not I had weed. It's had a bigger influence over my sub than any game design.
Inb4 I get an infraction and the dude I quoted doesnt for being completely off topic and not adding to the discussion at all.
The fact of the matter is this thread wasn't debating whether its right or wrong to smoke in general but if its ok to do it while playing WoW. And from my experience stoners are generally a lot better at concentrating and staying on task then people who are sober.

As long as they sit in front of the computer and hit the keyboard like a retard and don't hurt anybody it's fine to me.
The only high person that has every gotten on my nerves claimed they were on meth, and those people are always annoying.
When work feels overwhelming, remember that you're going to die.

Used to play with a shadowpriest who was a godlike priest (glad/r1 level) when he was stoned and thus he was always stoned when he played.
One night he decided to try doing cocaine while playing, never had him so hyper on skype, he still played brilliantly though, he used to be playing while in the same room as his dealer, which caused all kinds of funny situations
