POT SMOKING WITH OTHERS
Every host has different rules for what you can and can’t do in his or her house. Make sure you know what your host’s rules are, and then follow them completely.
Here are a few examples:
No pot smoking. Ask your host if they allow pot smoking in the house.
No cigarette smoking. Some hosts will allowing pot smoking, but NOT cigarette smoking.
Munchies. Ask permission before grabbing drinks or munchies.
Use common sense. If you’re not sure what your host’s rules are, ask.
Don’t force people to smoke pot against their will. A little ribbing might be expected or even appropriate, but don’t try to convince other people to smoke so that you can feel better about your own drug habit. If you’re the only one who wants to get high, smoke by yourself or don’t smoke at all.
This is an important principle that is often ignored: let other people know when you’re sick before sharing their smoking device. Don’t try to convince them that you’re not contagious any longer. Your peers may not want your germs getting all over their pipes or bongs. When you’re sick, consider carrying your own pipe to smoke from. Furthermore, if you and your friends practice this rule, you’ll get sick less often.
It’s not polite to blow your smoke into the faces of others. The fact that they are also smoking is no excuse.
YOU CALL THIS CHRONIC?
Don’t try and pass your dirt off as “chronic” (excellent quality weed), even if it smells and looks great. Do you really think that others can’t tell the difference once they’ve tried it? Everybody will be disappointed when they smoke it (after expecting a great high) and then find out that it’s crap.
If you take a puff from a joint, pipe or bong, but blow out no smoke, you have just taken a ghost hit. This is accomplished by holding the hit in your lungs for 20-30 seconds or until all the smoke is fully trapped in your body. While this technique is not recommended on a regular basis, it is pretty cool to witness…especially when someone belches and blows out a lung full of smoke 15 minutes after the end of a session.
Whether smoking from a pipe, bong, or joint, make sure not to slobber. It’s disgusting when you go to take a hit and you feel someone’s saliva on your lips. Also called “fish-lipping,” this sick habit needs to be dealt with quickly and harshly. Be direct; tell the offender that they slobber and must stop. If they continue to slobber, don’t let them smoke your weed.
Everybody gets the munchies after smoking weed. A good host will offer you something to snack on, but don’t be greedy.
Here are some points to keep in mind:
Ask permission. Ask your host’s permission before grabbing food from the fridge or pantry.
Pace yourself. If you eat too fast you’ll make yourself sick and there won’t be any munchies left for anyone else.
Clean up your mess and throw away the trash. Don’t leave your wrappers and crumbs for the host to clean up.
Supply the munchies. If you regularly smoke at the same house, you should supply the munchies on occasion.
