Best answer: Smoking weed doesn't make anyone more creative, what it does is make people content with being bored. It doesn't provide anyone with an opportunity to think differently or to see things in new ways. It just makes that person feel as though he or she can do that because of the detachment from the plain, obvious world surrounding them. That's why people who smoke a lot of weed think that the most pedestrian, mundane things are interesting. They want to believe that they are able to see things that people who aren't stoned can't see. But the truth is that there's nothing there when you're stoned that isn't there when you're not stoned, and vice versa. I've heard every argument under the sun from "I think it helps me focus", to "it relaxes your mind affording you the freedom to work out solutions to problems", to "it unlocks different levels of thinking that are inaccessible without the use of drugs." Let me tell you, it's all balderdash. It's something that people who get stoned all the time throw around because of their inherent guilt about being stoned all the time. They desperately need to attach some sort of meaning or purpose to doing it even though there really isn't any. People take drugs to change. If they didn't make us change, why would we bother with them? And people who smoke weed all the time don't like who they are. They think that they're uninteresting and incapable of accomplishing anything worthwhile, and the great dichotomy that exists in the mind of each and every one of them is this: "Which will win out - the burning desire that I have to actually achieve something with my life despite the fact that deep down I know I'm not particularly talented at anything OR the fact that I can very easily content myself with the fact that doing nothing with my life is perfectly acceptable to me because weed helps me pretend that I'm not actually wasting time, I can fool myself into believing that telly and Pop-Tarts is but a small part of my 'mental journey' toward some elusive vision of this eventual success that I like to pretend exists for me just beyond the horizon?" Many wonderful things came into existence without the aid of weed. That's the only answer to your question.
