Pot becomes a coping mechanism to deal with it that while isn't as physiologically damaging as say alcohol or heroin will still keep you from motivating. Pot's worst attribute I believe is that it becomes a motivation sucker and all you wanna do is sit on the couch and eat dorritos.
I think there is a small subset of habitual pot users that use it to slow their minds down enough to actually be productive, otherwise it would always be racing.
