Where Does the Term Stoner Come From? A Timeline

We know now that marijuana has been used in one form or another by humans for at least 12,000 years. There is also evidence that humankind has used cannabis to get high for at least 4,000 years and the plant only became illegal in many places around the world in the early 20th century.

There are hundreds of slang terms relating to weed, with “stoner” among the most famous. Despite the plant’s long and illustrious history, the above term only became popularized within the last 100 years or so. It has been known as a derogatory word during its brief history. However, there are signs of reduced public belief in the negative stereotypes associated with the term.
