When I smoke it's not about getting fucked up. It's more about enjoying the experience. I don't need to smoke ridiculous amounts of weed to be happy, just enough to be high. I actually think smoking a LOT is kind of a waste (of course there are exceptions for special occasions). Anyway, I see a lot of people treating weed the same as alcohol (not that you can't drink alcohol casually). They think of it as just another drug. They want to go out and party and get fucked up. When I first started smoking I guess I kind of felt this way too. But I feel like I've matured since then. When I smoke it's because I love the philosophical insights I have. I love how food tastes. I love how music sounds. I love how everything seems funnier. I love the feeling of happiness that overtakes my body and mind. I feel like this is the way weed is supposed to be used. It's really a great experience that has greatly improved my entire life. I feel like one of the reasons its looked down upon is because so many people treat it as just another way to get fucked up... but cannabis is so much more than that, and I only hope people can start to realize this and appreciate weed for more than just getting fucked up.

yo judging by your conversation bout jam bands with the fellow below...i think you'd reallyyy like lotus. they're amazing and even more unbelievable live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU0BxPUkdP0 this songs my favorite. then check out colorado by them if you like

and i couldn't agree with you more. once i stopped smoking to get "fucked uppp" and started smoking to relish every moment of life...i found peace.

I think this too! Like I don't consider being high off weed "fucked up" and my favorite part of being high is music being amazing and you appriciate it more and you kind of think outside the box

Haha yes. Judging by your username, I assume Slightly Stoopid get's played frequently (along with bands like Sublime, Dirty Heads, and 311?)

 
 
Mon, 03/07/2011 - 5:11pm

Yes I love those bands and I love jam bands like moe umphreys McGee Keller williams ect.

JIG1207 Says:

Yea I like a lot of jam bands. I love the grateful dead and I've listened to a bunch of other bands like umphreys mcgee. There all really good but I usually don't play them on my ipod often. I went to a day of gathering of the vibes last summer. That was sick, tons of jambands. I feel like we have a lot of music in common. Do you have a last.fm? Also, if I could give you one recommendation it would definitely be wookiefoot. There a psychedelic reggae rock alternative jam band. They're definitely my favorite band and every song is really different and unique. If you or anyone else is interested I'll link the torrent to download all of their stuff. They have a pretty extensive catalog lol. But also if you check out their facebook you'll get a feel for how chill they are. They're really close with their fans and they do a lot of great things. There all hippies haha.

I'll check them out for sure! Lol and umphreys and Keller you have to see live to really fully appreciate them. They are amazing and it's crazy that they improv everything and all their songs flow together non stop when theyre playing live

JIG1207 Says:

Yea I'm definitely gonna download some Umphreys. I had listened to them before but never got around to actually downloading them. Wish I could see them live, maybe some day. I've heard Keller Williams before and seen his youtube videos. He's definitely very talented to be able to play all those instruments. There's this musician I like, Xavier Rudd. He's kind of similar, in that he's a multi-instrumentalist and uses a similar stage set up, but it's got more of a reggae tribal vibe to it. Lots of didgeridoo haha.

 
 
Wed, 03/16/2011 - 9:57pm

I just now saw this lol but I have heard Xavier Rudd before. I listened to wookiefoot and they're good I downloaded one of their albums. Umphreys is a band you gotta see live though when I saw them none of my friends had heard them besides me and they don't even listen to that type of music and they loved it. They're amazing live

 
 
Fri, 03/11/2011 - 10:11pm

i completely agree with this man. I also smoke because of the philosophical insights it offers and it also helps me figure out what I personally want to get out of certain aspects of my life when I think about the issues high. I think you'll always have people chasing a high, but the true way weed should be used is the way you mentioned above. Blazeonsir.

I agree 120% with you. I feel the same way about Ecstasy as well, its nt something you can abuse, and treat it like 'another drug.' they're both lovely, wonderful, enlightening experiences, and you just have to enjoy them.

Especially because Ecstasy fucks you over, over time, whereas weed doesn't. (: but still, always best in moderation.

You have no idea how many people I've told this too and they look at me like I'm a retard. It just shows the difference between people who actually enjoy cannabis and people who enjoy being high (off of anything). I'm glad so many people on highdeas understand what I'm saying haha

Exactly, what I think a lot of people don't understand is that it's not about getting that alternate state of mind just to do it, but so that you can thoroughly enjoy an experience to the fullest. If I'm sitting on the porch just chillin, and I feel a really soothing breeze, or I hear some birds singing or something like that, I smoke instantly so that I can enjoy that part of life with even more clarity and bliss

Matisyahu, rebelution... Fuck yeah.
Whenever my friends and I go to smoke a lot, after a good 3 or 4 bowls I want to quit because I know I'm plenty high and don't want to just pass out. I like to enjoy my high and make it last. I don't know why people don't understand that. There's a time and a place for sure, but damn!

JIG1207 Says:

I've found that if you take your time smoking and smoke less at a time you actually get higher... or at least just as high. I believe that most people get used to smoking like an entire joint at a time so they think that's how much it takes to get high. But I smoke out of a bowl. Whenever I'm smoking alone I'll take one or two hits and then just chill for like 10 15 minutes. Then I'll repeat the process. I think it really makes the high last longer and it lets you appreciate how high you can get from such a small amount of weed.

you my friend are awesome! I was going to post something like this which was the main reason why i created an account because this is needed to be said. It really grinds my gears when people start smoking and start to look at weed as shitty weed and start to get really picky about it. Some of my friends are spoiled and have gotten to the point where they are quick to judge weed and talk so much shit about it. I love mary jane she treats me well no matter where she comes from. Yes sometimes she is hella dank and sometimes not as strong but I love the variety in every taste and form.
