Silicon Valley Stoners

Silicon Valley Stoners Trending on: Reddit Why: There's a raging culture of marijuana use among tech workers in Silicon Valley. Employers don't formally approve. Marijuana use is "extremely common" among tech workers, says Mark Johnson, 34, chief executive officer of Zite, based in San Francisco. The company, owned by Time Warner (TWX), produces an application that offers a personalized news stream on smartphones and tablets. "People just don't care," says Johnson, who adds that he smokes pot daily. "If you do, you don't need to hide it; and if you don't, you accept that there are people around you that do."
