We’re all quite guilty of forgetting our manners from time to time… This article has some pretty good advice on how to be a conscientious social stoner.
Whether it’s having people over or smoking up at a party, here are nine ways to make sure you’re a good and polite social smoker who will be invited back for more sessions.
1. BE RESPECTFUL OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Just like everyday life, you should always
clean up your trash and leave your spot
better than you found it. Basically, don’t
be a pig.
2. DON’T BE A FREELOADER
Like the first tip, this goes for everyday life,
too. So, if you don’t have any weed, just let
the others know. Also, don’t expect that
you’re getting any weed, as you’re not
automatically entitled to smoke with them.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t let them
know you’d be more than happy to blaze, if
they’d like to share, that is.
3. DON’T BE A WISE GUY
If you claim to be a seasoned smoker then
you better act like one, so don’t act like an
idiot and be friendly to the people that
you’re smoking up with. If you’re the host,
be genuine and welcoming. If you’re a
guest, again, be genuine and friendly.
4. DON’T BE A STONER STEREOTYPE
Times are changing, and so is the stigma
that’s surrounded cannabis for so long.
Don’t reinforce the negative aspects of
5. REMEMBER,YOU ARE IN CONTROL
While it isn’t physically addicting, weed
can be mentally addicting, so don’t let
your life revolve around it.
6.CHILL AND ENJOY THE HIGH
If you’ve got that high going on, just enjoy
it, and be the best personality you can. If
you like to be social, that’s easy: do just
that. But, if you like to observe, do so. As
we are all different, don’t tell anyone how
to act when they are high, either.
7. ENJOY THE COMPANY
If you do like to chill and observe, you can
do that, but you could find a group that
are sitting together and ask them
questions, too. That’s because people
generally want to know who the kind chiller
is in the back of the party.
You know that life can be hard, so take a
hit, exhale and think. Life is a journey, and
there are always bumps along the way.
Just remember that you will wake up
