Maybe I am boring but I have worked food sevice for twelve years and never smoked mj. I have seen aLOT of people smoke before work or on breaks- managers even. I cannot say that it helped the food or atmosphere in any way. Fortunately all food handling was up to standard but it didn't fuel creativity or hospitality one bit. Some seemed to be more antisocial and wanting to hurry through a rush to get another break before the buzz wore off. Maybe my observations were limited but I cannot see how it will help much.

I can see that. The article focuses more on chefs who create food for when they smoke, and less on chefs who create food while they smoke. To quote Bourdain, "(Mr. Chang's) sensibility is that he makes high-end stoner food in one respect but I feel sorry for anyone who shows up stoned for their shift at Momofuku,” he said. “He’d kill them.”
