Welcome to 4/20 on the internet, where weed aficionados and newbs alike can proclaim their love for the mythical herb to an audience who's forced to listen. We get it, you like to get high. Until marijuana is legal throughout the United States, and stuff like weed lube is available at Walgreens, we're going to have to go through this song and dance every year. 

This April 20th, however, you can celebrate your love of the green stuff (there aren't that many slang words out there) by boasting about your disposition for hot and frequent sex. A recent study conducted by the matchmakers at Match.com has revealed some surprising information about the sex habits of chronic smokers. 

Disputing the myth that potheads are asexual, the study proclaims that people cool with marijuana use "are 109% more likely to have had multiple orgasms, have 3.6% more orgasms per sexual encounter, and are 30% more likely to want to make out at the end of a date." They go on to say that 44% of smokers are looking for a commitment, while 144% "are more likely to have had relationships in the past." 

What does that mean for a person seeking out a relationship with a heavy smoker? They're inclined to be a veteran love-maker who's going to make you feel like a superhero with the number of times you give them orgasms. Happy 4/20 indeed.
