A viral Reddit thread on substance abuse in the legal profession began Tuesday with a simple question from an undergraduate student considering law school: “Any practicing lawyers here that still smoke weed?”

Reddit user u/FullFever595 opened the thread to others in the legal profession on the Reddit r/LawSchool subreddit. The exchanges not only confirmed what has been speculated about lawyers using marijuana, but it also brought other instances of substance and alcohol use in the profession to light.
