I know there's a drug thread, but I just want a few opinions and thoughts. I'm a regular pot smoker and lately I've been wondering why the slang terms for smoking pot all sound painful and unpleasant. Getting high is awesome, so why do we call it getting stoned, blitzed, blazed, baked, or ripped? Those all sound painful to me and being high is nothing like that. Why do they call it taking a hit? I guess sometimes it can be a little harsh, but I always enjoy taking a nice big drag (except gravity bongs, those bastards do hurt). If somebody would kindly give there opinion on this anomaly. And while your at it, maybe you could give your own theory on some other terms related to smoking. Why do they call it hot-boxing? Why do they say the blunt is canoeing when it is burning faster on one side than the other? Why do they call us stoners? What the **** does bong even mean? Do they call it a roach because it is supposed to look like a cockroach? When the bowl's done why is it cashed? I have my own theories, but I'd like to hear what the people think.

Question: Are you high right now?

Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

Because when the first people got high, they were so out of it and named everything in a very obscure manner.

Because those are cool sounding words that fit when people started saying them. Hammered shouldn't mean drunk, but there's something about the vowel and consonant sounds that make it feel like drunk.

Because it does more harm than good. Killing brain cells for an hour of stress relief. Winding up in a federal prison for a cool day that you won't remember the next morning. Yeah sounds pretty painful to me.
#13
you're right! Me and my friends "murder each other" every day after school!


Jk you're high.
#14
I read all of that. I think I deciphered it. Good point. Personally, I don't care though, as long as I'm getting high

And, you phail. you don't kill brain cells smoking pot, and its not like drinking, you can remember what you did when your high. It's not painful at all. Your just ignorant from all the lies the government and anti-pot elitists tell you.

I don't think either of those actually happen, well you might go to federal prison if you cross state lines with a lot of weed, but that's a pretty extreme case.

and I've never blacked out on marijuana, nor do i know anyone who has blacked out on marijuana, methinks you haven't the slightest clue what you are talking about.

Unless you are a repeat offender, have a whole crapload of weed on you, do something else illegal as well as having weed, or live in like Utah or something, chances are you won't go to prison, at worst you'll go to jail for a couple of months.

He's right.

Google Norml

Theres also a new study out saying that Cannabis (thought i would use a less painfull term) has become 30x more potent.

Well mine and Norml's reply to that is "Thats 1 less bowl we have to smoke" which in a way weed being more potent is more healthy. I would rather take a 1 hitter quitter then a smoke 9 bowls of regular out of a pipe.

In Utah you're definately screwed though.

I know minors who have been caught with weed and the cops just took it......You have no idea what you're talking about. and no I don't smoke anything...or drink for that matter.


I'm sure stoned came about because someone might have said you'll get stoned if your parents find you smoking pot. Some pothead teenager probably thought it was real clever to say "Hey d00d let's go get stoned!"

Actually, I believed stoned derived from feeling weighed down when you're high, as if you were full of stones.
#33
Meh, I personally have never really liked smoking it. Every time I have had it its been pretty rough ****.
#34
Well blazed would obviously refer to burning the pot as you smoke it.

And dude, canoing is obvious. When the joint burns out faster on one side, it starts to look like a canoe.

And you sir are most definitely blazed right now, this is such a blazed question.

I don't think anyone would argue a simple statement like that. Marijuana obviously isn't GOOD for you, and it changes your body, so yes its reasonable to say it is harmful.

The argument starts when you try to settle on a degree of harm, or how harmful it is compared to other things.
