MedMen Enterprises, a Culver City company that owns and operates licensed marijuana stores, is trying to convince the public to stop using the word “stoner.”
The company says the word perpetuates an inaccurate and negative stereotype of marijuana users. MedMen has produced ads that emphasize that users come from all walks of life, and that they represent all professions, including law enforcement officers, nurses, and construction foremen.
Do you agree? What does the word “stoner” mean to you?
