Yes. If you are an artist or musician and looking for creative inspiration, it can enhance those aspects.

Not at all. It’s going to demotivate anyone from doing anything.

Yes, but not in the heat of the moment. As an athlete you could smoke pot and be relaxed the next day.

I don’t think so, not performance enhancing, but it is good for eliminating pain.

I would say no. It tends to make me a little lazier. It’s like the opposite.
