I recently realized that I started smoking weed sometime in may of 2001, so its the 10 year anniversary of me and Mary Jane! Its not easy smoking for 10 years, so I kind of made some "stoner laws" along the way. These are just some tools I use to guide me along:

1) Always have a drink with you, no matter what stoner journey you are going on. I kid you not guys, this saves lives. You dont wanna be "that guy" who forgets their drink on a hike smoke sesh, or even hot boxing down your street. I mean, ya you can go get a drink after you smoke, but why even risk getting the evil cotton mouth? Pre-planning saves the day folks.

2) Ive come to realize that after a 3 minute conversation with anyone, anywhere in the world, I can determine if they are cool enough to ask if they smoke. If you really think about it, you can really figure out if someone is cool and they can figure out if your cool pretty quickly. And even if they dont have weed, they probably know someone who does. I mean really, Who doesnt know someone with weed? Ive had such great adventures and smoked with some completely random/awesome people in the world because of this law.

3) its ok to do weird things when your stoned. Fuck what other people think. Its ok to love doing childish things when your high. Fuck what other people think.

4) Eat a snack before getting high. And after smoking, wait atleast half an hour before eating. Enjoy your high. Because once you eat, thats all your going to want to do (not that thats a bad thing. I love me some high eatin'! Dont you hate people that write a whole bunch of shit in parentheses? Parentheses are suppose to be for short statements, people).

5) Visine in the car at all times. No exceptions to this one.

6) When walking into your parents house late at night, your parents cant hear the door opening, or the creaks in the floor, when they are passed out cold at 3am. Even though in the silence of the night everything is FUCKING LOUD AS HELL. You are going to be fine, relax.

7) They will however hear you when you start cooking eggs on the grill, heating 2 burritos in the microwave, and putting shrimp in the oven, all at the same time. So when your walking in stoned at 3am with the munchies, be sure to stop somewhere and get some foods, than eat that shit in your room.

8) Everyone loves the guy/girl who always has fun toys in their car. I for instance have a basketball, football, and a hacky sack. In the summer time you gotta throw in the fold-able lawn chairs and speakers. Never know when you might wanna go to the beach.

9) Have your own music everywhere you go, no matter where you go to smoke. Fuck that radio noise mainstream garbage. Also dont forget your headphones.

10) enjoy roadtrips with friends to the fullest. Leave many hours earlier than when your suppose to, and stop and enjoy the world along the way. When me and my friends go camping, we stop and smoke 5 times on the way, whenever we see anything beautiful.

11) Dont hide your smoking from anyone(except your parents of course). If smoking really is a big part of your life, there is no reason to build any sort of relationship with lies from the begining. Also, they will find out, because, well we always smell like bud. Lies only solve problems for a short period of time, but lies only lead to eventual failures. You may never know how they truly feel about smoking, if you never tell them how you truly feel about smoking.

Peace, love and Marijuana to all.

If you're talking to me, I'm 17 right now. That's literally the most recent picture of me on my computer (from when I was 15). If not, everyone knows how old I am now!

im 25. Yea, a few of these are things of the past, Im just putting them out there because they basically saved me when I use to live with my parents! Plus, most of the people on here are under 20, so Im just trying to help out the masses.

Im not so sure about some of the people on here, but you are genuinely one of the best contributors on this site. Its easy to see that you think out your highdeas and write honest insightful comments. Not sucking up or anything here just wanted to let you know what I think. If I am ever in the mid-west Ill make it my goal to smoke you out :) with some kush ( you are in the midwest right? hahaha)

irocknight Says:

wow dude, this should be like a sign for everyone to buy! also, me and my friends have rule people may wanna add. If the person with weed doesnt ask if you want a hit, dont go and beg for it. If you dont have weed to match, you normally dont get any unless you made deals back for food and what not.

Numero two is a favorite. You can almost ALWAYS tell.

yoinkie Says:

haha, yes dude you can! Im glad im not the only one. Ive only once experienced someone who got offended when I asked them. It was weird, in London one night. Other than that, everytime ive asked anyone anywhere, it has either led to smoking weed, or just a good friendship/convo with a stranger

Number six made me laugh forever. I'm pretty sure we've all crept around trying to be silent and almost shit our pants with fear for every creak the floor or doors made hahahah.

accidentally downvoted... that's the only post by yoinkie that will ever be downvoted

Groovy man :) you know your a stoner when you can give so many helpful rules (Even if they state the obvious) cuz some people forget, or stop being careful or are too careful. When it comes to weed, if you really like it, it will always find a way back to you
