assuming you get up and are stoned most of the day, you'll play pretty badly in the time it takes to get used to only getting stoned after your session

and thats the last ill say because im getting a cold sweat thinking about it

seriously, if I've been playing 8 hours and am deep or semi deep in a few things and I take a ridiculous beat I handle it so much better and just grind on when I am high. I definitely don't think I play as well early on high though.

ok, ill try to explain

you have your routine for the day, say, you do a few things in the morning then start your tourneys and start getting stoned.

you get told you have to change this routine, so that you dont start getting stoned until after your session. assuming you've been doing this a while, for the first week or so, your session will be hard to get through because you're used to being stoned by then

or maybe thats just my experiences of when ive gone somewhere i cant smoke or not been able to pick up and decided to play poker anyway, and it doesnt happen to anyone else or maybe it only makes sense if you give up completely

The only time I've ever played an mtt high I won a $2 triple shootout or something.

but that is irrelevant here obv. It's staker's money and if he doesn't feel comfortable staking when the stakee is going to be playing high at times then the staker should cut off the deal.

ignoring the issue of whether pot affects your play or not, my solution would be to cancel the deal and renegotiate. If you want to make the same deal, do it, otherwise don't.

actually all of this is irrelevant since its your [censored] money and he can either agree or not be staked.

if he multitables, I can see it being -EV,

if he just single tables some higher tourneys then I don't think so.

I mean, this discussion will go nowhere. I have yet to meet any poker player that smokes pot that will say it impairs their decision making.

I definitely play worse when I'm smoking. That's why I try to avoid cash and stick to MTT variance-fests when I'm blazin'.

However, it's great for keeping me from getting overly upset at myself for playing badly. And, it just feels good and brings a smile to my face and joy into my heart. It's the tickle at the bottom of my feet and the angels pulling on the sides of my mouth making me smile. As Wesley Willis might put it, marijuana is joyride music, and keeps me off the hell city bus.
