A Stoner Guru is that special brand of person who becomes more philosophical and introspective when they get high rather than run straight for the kitchen to empty the fridge and cabinets of food because they have been hit with a wicked case of the munchies or sit there on the couch , by themselves, and have a 2 way conversation with a house plant.
A stoner guru sees weed and certain other drugs like speed as a religious experience and the heightened awareness that comes from it should be embraced for the new found perceptions that can come with their use.
In other words, Drugs are a tool and not a high speed vehicle for escaping from reality's blues but rather one that enhances reality, making it more real, making the problem at hand one that is more manageable and able to be grasped because of the focus that comes from their aid.
The way to define a Stoner Guru is how they are still able to function in life and produce without the aid of drugs. As said earlier drugs are just merely a tool like a metronome to a learning pianist that keeps them aware of other aspects of the lesson like the rhythm and tempo in relation to the notes on paper and the placement of the keys.
A Stoner Guru is not someone who lives in their parent's basement and eats peanut butter off their fingers while they're high and tweets about the deeper meaning of shows like Rick and Morty because they are too busy being a part of and contributing to society.
