I have to admit that I did try playing stoned over christmas. I'm not a big pot smoker, but once in a while is OK. I played some small SNG's and that is pretty much what happened to me.

Anyone have similar/different experiences?
I was playing 1 table at a time, and was sat there and I just 'knew' when someone was weak and would fold. Maybe I was on a heater that day, but a friend of mine was sat next to me and he was just taken aback that I would have ATC.. and just say.. this guy will fold the flop.. and sure enough he would. Oh and no HUD either.. I couldnt focus on it properly!
We did joke that maybe stoned poker was the way forward!!
I wouldn't recommend it to higher stakes players but I would suggest that the smokers here try it out on a few small tournaments. A lot of people in this thread seem to be agreeing with this!
