    Because of Dopamine, which plays a role in how we feel pleasure.

    And, recreational drugs are intoxicating.

    It is meant to be a derogatory term by those that believe that people that use drugs are dopes.

    Because the Nixon administration suffocated some monkeys with cannabis smoke and dissected their brains to find brain damage. What they didn’t tell the public was that any suffocation, regardless of the type of smoke, causes brain damage.
