When I am stoned, I tend to not be nearly as angry, and that constant pit of rage that I've had for as far back as I can clearly remember has a sort of lid on it, that allows me to deal with stupidity long enough to do my job. Xanax does the same thing for me, oddly enough, but it tends to make me feel nauseous, which, due to the chronic ulcers that come with the chronic rage, is about the last fucking thing I need.
I meet stoners all the time who are kind of bummed out when they're out of weed, (in much the same way I am when I run out of Swiss Rolls) But the only angry stoners I have met have been more like me, just kind of angry people.
