I know that drinking alcohol decreases the metabolism. does smoking weed have the same effect?

See below : I am not really sure what you mean by alcohol reducing metabolism. It clearly reduces intestinal motion and function in certain parts of the brain. Its overall effect on metabolic rate is not much. Marijuana also reduces function in certain areas of the brain but has little impact on metabolic rate.
