im bulding a adventer for my gameing group and i want to add a npc. This npc i want to be an potion maker that is a complet stoner. So my question is whout would be the best race, my ideas would be human or drow, maybe halfling. Some ideas plz
I tend to use halflings for this. I'm actually preparing a D&D meets Cheech & Chong type scenario now, so it's funny I see this posted.

Gnome. Bonus points for going Alchemist as the theme and making his own 'special' concoctions. Class can pretty much be anything fitting.

I would definitely go halfling or gnome.

I have a gnome illusionist named "Cane Happyleaf" that I'm probably going to pull out of the bag someday. 
My username should actually read: Lunar Savage (damn you WotC!) *Tips top hat, adjusts monocle, and walks away with cane* and yes, that IS Mr. Peanut laying unconscious on the curb. http://asylumjournals.tumblr.com/
I have a Halfling crafter, Tokaz Greenfield. He is a druid infusionist, who crafts pipes out of anything; bar stools, mugs of ale and even his friends battle axes into battle axe bongs.

Within; Without.

I'd go with a minotaur.

I think this guy wins...?

Bullywug.

Don't bullywugs explode when they smoke?
you could make it work for any race really, you could have warforged intentionally loosening wires, bullywugs licking eachother, an elf could be a hippy obsessed with "nature's bounty"

Quite literally, any of them.  Races aren't clones; each member is an individual with their own personalities and quirks.
Yes, but for class, I would go druid.  A druid could literaly speak to the plants he's growing to make any psychotropic elements more potent.  Whether by asking what spevific nutrients they need, or by simply asking them to produce higher concentrations of those agents.

But as far as races, I would go with halflings mainly for the imagery evoked by the LotR movies that made hobbits kind of stoner-like.  Or gnomes.  Gnomes in 3.5e also get racial bonuses on Craft (alchemy) checks.
Or shaman - if you're seeing spirits, you're definitely high.

Do half orcs get an intelligence penalty? That might explain it...
A rogue with a bowl of slop can be a controller. WIZARD PC: Can I substitute Celestial Roc Guano for my fireball spells? DM: Awesome. Yes. When in doubt, take action.... that's generally the best course. Even Sun Tsu knew that, and he didn't have internets.
thxs all for the ideas i think i can have some fun with a gnome ^.^.
I can't believe no one suggested a shardmind.

I'd play him like the Rock Man from The Point. "Say, baby, ain't nothin' pointless about this gig."

Doin dat shard
Myconid? Do they have myconids in 4e?. This guy IS a shroom. I'm not sure how much more stoner you could be... this creature literally IS a hallucinogenic mushroom!

Treant, lol.

Terrasque! This would explains the terrasque's ravenous appetite... he has the munchies.

There are myconids, but they aren't playable (someone made a playable one really early in 4e though, for free too).


The shroom or the bullywug who licks himself seems hilarious though.

Hamadryad seems most appropriate.
Vryloka (or undead) seem most inappropriate... and thus a better choice ;)
