That's a form of living hell id imagine.
Just ghosting through life. You have to ask yourself, what about their family and loved ones. How are they living with this day in day out. If I'm honest I don't think I could, but it's easy to say that when you don't have to.
You wouldn't believe the amount that's here drinking. The council bulit an estate here a few years ago. The local shop keeper said it was the best thing that happened for him. He makes more on selling wine, than any other products including petrol and diesel.
I know a couple of people, including family members that smoke weed, and as far as I can see it's the far lesser of the two evils. Their not messy, or unkept, have good jobs and a strong family unit.
