and the use of drugs is not unique

The progenitors of stoner rock, like their followers today, often share the characteristic that they and their audience are "stoners," recreational users of cannabis. While it would be grossly inaccurate to describe all fans and performers of stoner rock as marijuana users, some may find that the effects of marijuana and the down-tuned, slow, and psychedelic riffs of stoner rock complement one another which eventually led to the common usage of the term "stoner rock" or "stoner metal" to define the genre.

This kind of connection between music and the use of drugs is not unique in music culture. Similar comparisons can be made between dance music and recreational drugs such as ecstasy. Various musicians who identify themselves as marijuana users (notably Pantera, who have included cannabis logos on their merchandise) do not qualify as "stoner rock" as the style of their musical output is largely outside the genre.

Due to the similarities between stoner and sludge metal, there is often a crossover between the two genres. This hybrid has traits of both styles[9][10] but generally avoids stoner metal's positive atmosphere and its usage of psychedelia. Bands such as Bongzilla,[11] Weedeater,[12] High on Fire[13][14] and Electric Wizard have been reported to fuse both styles.[15]
