Bullshit. We just reach a higher level of intellectual capability and analyze situations and consequences more heavily, therefore taking an understandably extensive amount of time to reach a decision.

Agreed completely...However, as much as I wanted to upvote...I just couldn't..here's why:

haha I think you are very right. I've thought about it before.. especially when I pee while stoned. It always feels like I'm peeing for 10 minutes, but I realise that I think much more during a stoned pee than during a sober pee, therefore it feels longer, when it just probably the same amount of time. I'm actually going to use a stopwatch next time to compare.

you are so right with this point here! there is definitely no denying that this is true, high people are seriously soooo smart and have figured out so many cool things

i mean i'm not trying to put this down but all i'm saying is if i have an exam i need to study for i'm taking an adderall not smoking a plane...

Well maybe that's just you. And millions of other college students. I've never taken adderall and refuse to use that to help me study. And I DO smoke when I study and do my schoolwork - and I have pretty good grades. Lots of people are capable of smoking and being productive.

iamneil7 Says:

i feel you on that i've studied high for exams i thought were going to be easier and gotten the best grade in the class, but i've found adhd meds help you concentrate and remember things a lot better than pot, that would be an interesting hypothesis to test but would be pretty hard to do(because it would be a lot more complicated than giving one person an adhd med and another pot and seeing who does better on the same test), and there's actually research that has been done about the brain that shows that when someone is stressed, they are not as likely to remember things very well(this is also why eye witnesses often provide inaccurate information), so the relaxing effect of pot is probably why studying after you smoke can work, adhd drugs work because they target the prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain responsible for attention, decision making, and expression of personality, so they both have potential to work, it would be interesting, but difficult research to do seeing as you would have to give the same individual each drug and have them do different tests, that's where the problem is, ideally you would want to give the same person each drug and the same test, but since that wouldn't work (obviously they'd remember things from the first test) you would have to find a test that would be proven to be as similar as possible to the first test, plus you would have to screen out many other variables that could bias the results, so it may not be even possible to determine with much accuracy which works best(until cloning is fine tuned), but the bottom line is they both have potential for scientific reasons

I'm going to be honest bro.. nobody wants to read all that when they're high. I got through the first sentence and was like "fuck this..."

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 9:24am

dude i totally agree i never read the long stories lmao

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 1:08pm

Haha I did the same thing but he made a good enough point within the first couple sentences that I felt obliged to upvote him haha

haha totally agree, i was like, 'wtffffff, im done haha' but i get what he's sayin

Thu, 12/01/2011 - 6:07am

I'm gonna more honest, "bro". I'm sure plenty of people do want to read it when high, like myself. Thank you for reinforcing the stereotype that stoners have no attention span and ambition, which if I'm not mistaken, is partly what this highDEA was about.

CoolAidMan Says:

I actually read it all and its a very good hypothesis. Personally I have ADHD and I take Aderall for it and it helps me focus tremendously. Although the same cant be said for weed, it actually makes me focus less, unless I get a good Sativa strain.

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 11:04pm

well, if i smoke weed, i know i would score high on a drug test!

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 1:14am

i use weed as like a reward i say ok I'm not going to smoke until i study or finish my homework...it makes me not procrastinate and makes me get shit done.

if you study high, take the test high, you'll get high scores

i take adderall on a daily basis cuz that shit makes u get work done unlike weed were i just draw all over my folders, sleep and acomplishing nothing. and thats the truth!

adderall + school > weed + school

trust me...you need school cuz the way the economy is going its gonna be tough to get a job in the future if ur just an average joe. thats why i do my book learnin' all week and then smoke my face off on once the weekend rolls around. thats just what i do so please dont bash me for not smoking and going to school. its my choice not yours

I disagree since I play video games much better when I'm stoned, then sober, I believe it is because my reaction time is up

Ok everyone is agreeing with you. Your reaction time has nothing to do with your intellectual qualities. Its your physical reaction time that is slowed by 15 %

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 8:12am

Ps I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just sayin you might wanna word that better next time

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 12:58pm

i dont know about you but my physical reactions, aka my reflexes adapt to a higher reality while baked... like that of a mongoose on speed! Or a cheetah after a espresso...

It depends...some days youre a ninja, some days you're a heavily sedated ninja.

ElleDee Says:

It does slow down our reaction time.... you just said why though. in other words, its not bad that it slows it, we just make more thought out decisions.

Smithhy Says:

It depends, it depends. The more I think about simple yes/no answers in life, the more apparent it is that there is no black and white reasoning to anything. Too many variables. People all think differently.

WooWooGoMe Says:

I don't think it slows mine down at all, as evidenced when I drop a piece. Some pretty impressive reaction times are had in intense situations such as those...

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 3:55pm
Wed, 11/30/2011 - 3:57pm

reaction time is slower, but perception is wayyyyyy sharper which people never seem to mention.

what does this have to do with what the topic is explaining??? Even being high, i can have better input than this

EXACTLY! took the thoughts right out my brain!
