I gave a guy my number. He says I'm cute and we've been texting. He asks about my day we text a few. He's bland though. Like short answers but he replies. I ask all the questions. Sometimes it takes him forever to even answer. He says good night and he did text me this morning and we exchanged a few text all day. I told him we should meet up and he agreed. We decided on a place but for some reason I feel like he's 75% aware he's talking to me but 25% out of it. He did say he smokes weed a lot but I don't know if I should factor that in. Should I just stop texting because I'm wasting energy and he might flake on me?

It's hard to say, really. He may just be really nervous and not know what to say or be afraid of saying the wrong things, or maybe even afraid that he's bothering you (some very nervous/anxious people feel this way no matter what), so he lets you do all of the initiating to be on the safe side. Or he may just be not taking it seriously at all and just messing around.
He may be taking so long to answer if he is at work or busy with something too. There's been a few times that it's taken me hours to respond to a text because I was at work or left the phone on the counter while I did housework.
I find that a lot of guys tend to be short in response and horrible about carrying out a conversation through text. It is very annoying, I agree. But it is just the way some people are.1
