Smokers Etiquette 101

SuperStock_1444R-260545_545x363.shkl

Smoking with your friends is always a fun occasion.  It's a time that you guys get to smoke, chill, relax and zone out.  As long as everyone follows the rules, it is a good time for all.  When people start breaking the rules they start to become one of the few people that no one wants to smoke with.   Make sure you follow the rules at all times.

Shout outs to all of my twitter friends for helping me out with these suggestions.  Love those guys.  Here are the official Hail Mary Jane rules of etiquette while smoking.

  1. Rollers Rights - The person who rolls the joint/blunt lights it.
  2. Whoever brought the bud gets next.
  3. Always pass to the left.
  4. puff, puff, pass
  5. Bogarting is hanging on the joint for too long and is a big no no.  This is a serious breach of etiquette.
  6. If you drop the blunt, you lose your turn.
  7. If when smoking, someone asks for a sip of your drink, you must give them some, dry mouth is horrible and tortuous.
  8. If you ask for a sip of someone's drink, take only that and NOT a gulp.
  9. Always carry a roach clip.
  10. (Optional but nice) bring a bowl to put in on itblunt
  11. If you're choking, you need to pass it.  You should either be puffing or passing when you have the blunt.
  12. Never be stingy with weed, you never know who will be there to save u when ur smokeless.
  13. Never ask to smoke someone elses weed, they're most likely going to share if they know you smoke, stoners are nice
  14. If you are going to a cipha do not come empty handed. Sponsor something, even if its only roll ups.
  15. If you're breaking it up, make sure you take out all the sticks and seeds.
  16. If a good friend runs out of weed and you have some spare, give it to him and he in turn will reciprocate in your time of need.
  17. No wet mouth! It's very impolite to get the end of the joint wet with saliva.

Did I miss anything?

      • nononononono you guys have got it all wrong… if you drop the blunt you still get to smoke it, just everyone smoking it with you gets to punch you in the arm

        • Party foul…droppin the blunt or any buzz kill gets you some punishment every group has its own but you still get to smoke

          Post a Reply
    • even if your stoned off your ass, there is no excuse for dropping the blunt or joint.

      i hate the people that try to act like they can roll and they really can't, so you're stuck waiting for them to finish and light up. thats the most annoying thing besides the people that ask me if i'm high every 5 mins.

      Post a Reply
    • Nope, if you drop it, pass it, because when the blunt come around to you its time to straighten up and hit da damn sweet! =]

  4. instead of always bringing a roach clip i would say always have a lighter on you.

    Post a Reply
    • i try to have both on me… and a one-hitter just in case.

    • and definitely no lighter jacking. cause that's totally inconvenient next time uu go to spark a.. oh wait what spark? My f***ing bic's gone.

  5. Don't pay according to the amounts of hits you take. If its a 4 man blunt and a dub is 20 bucks, pay that 5 bucks and dont be a cheapo saying ur not taking as many hits as everyone else.

  7. Number 4 and 5…Yes, but..

    If the joint is shared with 3 people or more, this happens: guy puffs and passes the joint, immediately after getting it the next in line does the same and so on. In 10 seconds the joint is already going to the third in the ring……so destroying the joint and wasting good stuff.

    When i get that joint which now possesses a good 1 inch ashworm, burnt on one side only and whatnot, i WILL hold it and let it cooldown for awhile. I haven't smoked that juicy haze at all when someone says i'm hogging it, then having to explain that obvious thing again,,..,., aargghh it's frustrating. It seems like i have to teach seasoned veterans on how to smoke. Men are much worse than women at this, which is weird. If the joint is properly rolled, it will die out without human assistance.

    The correct etiquette is HOLD, PUFF, PUFF, PASS..

    Post a Reply
    • going on with the 3 people example, lets say 2 rounds have gone up now its my homi turn, but hes full and cant take more in the moment as so me and the other dude… 1.do i keep the joint while burning (waste it). 2.turn it off for couple of minutes (wtf for?)?????? what does the etiquette say for that

      Post a Reply
      • Good Zeus, it's not that hard to figure out!

        Smoking etiquette…lol.

        I'm happy I end up smoking largely by myself. Of course many medicinal users (including myself) have an entirely different outlook on cannabis as it's more of a medicine than anything else. Plus the high is different when you have a lot of neuropathic pain

        Post a Reply
    • Dude, if you don't know how to keep a joint from canoeing or fix it, someone should teach you. Don't hold my joint because it's canoeing. Fix it, hit it, pass it on. It doesn't need to go out to be fixed. AND yes a good rolled joint will go out on its own but not before wasting good pot burning for a bit. If you were at my house and were holding a joint cause it has a long ash and a canoe burn, i would take it from you, ash it and fix the canoe, hit it and skip you. Don't ever hold the pot man, not cool. You don't have to "let it cooldown for awhile" to fix the "burnt on one side only" issue. You also don't have to "let it cooldown for while" because it has an ash that needs ashing. Whoever has it when it needs ashing ashes it. ?? What, pissed that you get it when it needs to be ashed? Are you sure you're a stoner? LOL..seriously, I've been toasting for 30 years and you sound like a rookie. You have to explain to your veteran smoking friends because what you are saying is a problem is ridiculous and isn't a problem. Letting the joint cool down isn't an answer to anything either. It might be YOUR answer to stopping the canoe, let it go out and light the un-burnt part once its cooled, but its not the fastest or most convenient way. Maybe you should ask some of your veteran friends to teach you how to deal with a canoeing joint, then you wouldn't have to explain to them why you are holding it. I can imagine they are so stunned by what you are saying when you explain why you are holding it, that they just don't respond and let you hold it. Just my humble opinion man and I don't smoke anymore, I vape.. much healthier.

  8. if your new to smoking dont be afraid to ask a guy you know that smokes how to smoke with the proper etiquette i swear when someone who is smoking for the first time and just tries to smoke without knowing the proper rules that just pisses me off i mean if you know the rules and mess up every now and then at least you are trying not just being completely retarded

    Post a Reply
    • tru that dudee new smokers shud observe and ask questions if need be hell i did aint afraid to admitt it thats why ppl smoke with me got respect fo thier weed and i smoke them up to so its all guddd xD

  9. @ damien moore, of course you need proper etiquette when you smoke, otherwise good bud gets wasted and no one gets as high as they could have. The way you sound, you are the reason this list exists, because of non-knowing little fucks like you we all have to suffer.
    * One rule I’d add would be: when rolling a dutch, peel the leaf off properly instead of splitting it. This way you can remove the cancer paper underneath along with extra paper that just makes the blunt taste like paper. Because without a proper roll your blunt is going to be fucked whether you have the right etiquette or not.

  12. @ Damien moore, you must not get to smoke with to many people… I only say this because when you say "fuck all the etiquette bullshit……….amateurs" you are insulting a very vital part of the whole social aspect of smoking. I know a lot of people that would curb-stop you for even hinting that being respectful is bullshit.

  13. i have a few issues with this list one is the never break rotation. if im the one who supplied all the herb and ur being a dauche or not listening to me. your getting skipped till i say so or if it’s a new bowl with a few to many heads I may ask for it to go to me first then put back in roation
    second if its a blunt, puff puff pass gets annoying. learn to roll your blunts so you can puff on it for a minute but don’t bogart, me and my buddies smoke about a 1/4 inch of the blunt before we pass it, well thats before we started just putting the fucker in the bong
    but back to puff puff. I cant puff like I use to where you take those deep rips, I can barley hit a bowl deep lung style (with out a ghoust/vacume/kill hit) with out coughing now cuz my throats so fucked, so when it comes down to it and im trying to get a decent hit and im outside I may exhale three times to get the proper hit, puff puff is really for amatures.
    Along with the whole to the left idea. What if im throwing in more herb than anyone else and my seat happens to be to the right?
    Rollers rights kinda go with the people. Ive been smoking for 3 years (im only 19 so sorry to all you vetrains) even though at times I was averaging five blunts a day I cant roll an L so I always have my friends do it. If they roll it and chill with it for five minutes I may take it from them and light it my self. This is a very BY BASIS move and should only be excuted when the person your smoking with understands what your doing.
    Dropping the blunt should not be a reoccurring event but it should happen skipping the person usally isn’t as fun as what I like to do. If they do drop it request them to put out there smoking hand (usually the right) and slap it as hard as you feel necessary. I throw blunts across rooms if there not with in passing distance so its not really a concern for it to hit the ground. JUST DON’T BURN ANYTHING
    And who the fuck needs a roach clip. Lick your fingers (not so there slobbery) and hold the blunt normally and hit it or put it out and throw it in the nearest piece of glass.
    rule that should be added
    DONT BURN ANY OF THE FURNITURE. we were mixing sheesh and herb and hte ass hole threw the still lit coal into the pickle jar ash tray that was on the floor. luckly it was on a rug and not the actual floor so we didnt damage the house just the rug the coal was hot enough to melt a decent size mark into the rug tho this could also go along with don’t touch the burn hot lighter to the couch. Or let the ember that fell outa the bowl reside on the carpet. Or burning the BACK seat ceiling, happened in my car… still pissed as fuck I hav e a burn mark over the back seat. I can get the front passing.
    Don’t microphone, if your gona tell a story take a hit or two and pass.
    I could make a separate section for cars really but heres some of my favorites. If it looks like a cop it’s a cop until we go past it. I have gotten arrested twice for upms(both were reduced to a different violation) and I don’t need another Id rather be sketch for 30 seconds then have to deal with getting another one.
    If you do get pulled over. Give them everything but the scale. Unless its over 25 grams (state pending)Ive gotten out of upms because I handed them the bowl and weed, cops are just as lazy as stoners.
    If your in car, ask for the ash tray. Same goes for houses. Even tho it may look dirty the floor isn’t always the ashtray.

    Oh and one for the 77 things u do when your stoned. Write out redicouly long posts to websites you’ll likely never visit again.

    • reading the ridiculously long comments that other stoners left on random stoner websites, haha.

    • after reading this weed comment i do positively agree with one thing…. WATCH OUT THE FUCKING FURNITURE!!!

      and also puff puff pass is about equity, keeping the balance…… get it?! not that bs of amateur you said

  14. ok one thing that is irritating as hell is wen u and ur homies are blazen and u get ur lighter pocketed and u dont realize untill u start to sober up and got to fix that and dont got any fire. its a masive kill joy

    Post a Reply
  15. u forgot a big one… when blazing a bowl let everyone get greens dont just torch the whole bowl if you hit the corners of the bowl at least 4 people can get greens(obviously depending on bowl size) try it sometime its easier than one might think. "recommended for all smoking levels novice-veteran" you get more out of it this way

    Post a Reply
    • me and my friend actually made a game out of this. we call it green hit. we try to make each other take the last green hit by smoking the sides and such. i won by proving my smoking skills and actually got my flame to swoop under the last green hit. MAD SKILLZ! its fun and shows deep respect for your smoking partner.

    • Start burning from one edge and keep it cherried. lasts twice as long and everyone gets good smoke

      Post a Reply
    • thats what me and my friends do, we all take a green hit and we hold it until we get the bowl back in our hand for our hit :)

      Post a Reply
      • My Friend makes me do that all the time. but he makes me hold my hit then when the bowl get's back to me take another one on top of my first hit! and so on till i pass out from holding my breath and smoke in for so damn long! But still It get's me hella high! my record is 20.

        • that is so stupid you are depriving yourself of oxygen and opening up possibilities for brain damage :P.

          Post a Reply
  16. agreed, i cant stand when my friends just catch the whole damn thing on fire. especially if its all we got. always conserve and corner the bowl. and don't worry, you'll still get high.

    another thing, is it is very very rude to complain about the weed if your not the one providing. alright, the weed may not be the best this time but its what we got, im letting you smoke with me, don't whine. bitch haha.

  17. i follow all these rules, but there is one that i believe deserves a high spot on this fine list, and that would be, when smoking in a vehicle, DONT CRACK THE DAMN WINDOWS!

    Post a Reply
    • or ruin the hot box with cig smoke!

      Post a Reply
    • Unless the driver requests the windows to be cracked so the car doesnt reek of pot. Unfortunate as losing the hot box is, it's important to respect the owner of the car.

      • When I had my car it was constantly smokey and I loved it, now that I don't have my car and people want ot Hotbox their cars they always crack the windows and/or light up a cig after the bowl is gone. Don't fucking Hotbox the car if you are going to do that, such a waste of time and herbal. Bask in the smoke, inhale the smoke, ENJOY THE SMOKE!

        Post a Reply
  18. dude why would you not want to crack the windows when you’re driving? unless you’re parked or driving in an unusually secure location, it’s much sketchier to be rolling around with a fuckin hotbox than to have a tiny bit of smoke you can’t even see drifting out. also people smoking cigarettes crack their windows even in the rain, you might as well put up a sign.

    however, if you are in a secure parking spot then yes, hotboxing is the best.

  19. DO NOT…i repeat…DO NOT invite a stranger in to a smoke circle and offer up the blazeage if the blunt(or whatever) is not yours! sooo annoying! i would never disrespect you or your circle by inviting a stranger in and offer up your smoke. its rude and may cause the owner of the stash discomfort or embarrassment if they have to say no! besides, if the stranger hangs out a moment he/she might get invited in anyways…like said before, stoners are nice!

    • This reminds me of a guy I used to smoke with. He'd always ask me if I want to smoke, and I'd say sure, go to pick him up. Now sometimes he'd have some random guy with him I do not know. So they get in my vehicle and neither of them are breaking out anything. I ask if they're pitching anything and they're all, "sorry man, we're fresh out." So, I pretend I'm running low on supplies and just roll a tiny little joint that I'll burn most of on the first two puffs.

      If you're bringing some guy I don't know, he better be pitching or you're pitching for two.

      This same guy would give people my phone number when they were looking to buy, but I was never a dealer and never bought large enough quantities that I'd want to sell, and especially not to people I do not know.

    • yeahh, its chill if the stranger bring his/her own bud, then hell yeah, but no don't bring random ass people to smoke with your circle when you didn't even throw in yourself, good point man

      Post a Reply
  20. I think it should be noted that many rules on this list can be broken if you want. Mix it up a bit. Part of having fun being a stoner is being able to think for yourself and decide how you want to smoke. Me and my crew play rock, paper, scissors for greens, regardless of who brought the bud or packed it. And don't forget to call deuces. Keep smoking fun, and break the rules from time to time, just as long as you're not being a scheissty mother.

  21. Definatly do not bring ur downbuzz mates around who get shitty if they arent the centre of attention. and also to solve the problem of bringin mates round who arent going to put in for the sesh, just flick ur mate a txt whos house it is and ask them if its all good if your mate comes.

  22. im turning 18 in 2 days so for me its legal to smoke then since i live in amsterdam , but ive been smoking for 5 years i grew up with the veterans of smoking and i mean some real smoking, and a no go is eating choclate while smoking since u get choclate lips/fingers and it will get on the filter so WHIPE ur mouth when u do that , or talking about politics or any other discussion that shit will fuck up your high, me and my homies are always smoking and lets be serious always share with your friends,unless u share so much and never get anything in return be straight with them and tell em , ey dude bring some weed or cash u've been smoking my shit since ever and when u got ur own money/weed u smoke that with some other homies thats uncool and for that ur getting skipped untill you role a big one for all of us

  23. It's suitable to say once if you're really high.

    After that it's retarded and everybody is all aware. You all smoked the same weed and probably had the same tokes. You're all super high, no need to inform anyone.

    newbies tend to do this a lot, but I can excuse them because they're new to it, so for them it's fun to sit and laugh at how high they are.

    Post a Reply
  24. honestly, in all this there's one rule that you sure did miss
    when you're high, don't bring anyone else down, be fucking happy you're high!
    because high=happy, and some of the best moments in my life have been me high. [:

  28. i might not be a veteran smoker yet, but one thing so many people forget once there baked that pisses me off so much, is that they forget its not there weed. final word always goes to the person who paid for it. not only did he pay for it, but he went thru the illegal process of getting it in the first place. if ur nice, he'll be nice and all will be good, but i cant tell you how many times people have forgotten just whose blunt there smokin

  30. In terms of etiquette and or rules, just BE COOL. It really isn't that hard. If you are having problems with someone that continually "violates" one of your rules…Don't smoke with them anymore. Either you get it or you don't. I have been toking since '83, so I have definitely seen my share of good and bad practices. I keep the good and throw out the bad. A true friend may make a mistake or two, but in general they will always pull through…a douche bag will not. Life is too short to waste time on people like this. Lastly, if you don't feel comfortable then you have every right to get up and leave. Toking should be a relaxing experience. If it isn't, then you are doing it wrong.

  31. If you're smoking a bowl try to keep it rolling and especially don't re-light it if it is rolling. that's how you waste good weed along with roaching the bowl or lighting a different side of it and then coming back to you all burnt. that's why if you pack the bowl or roll the joint/blunt with your own weed you take double the hits of anyone else without letting them do so.

  32. It's a hoot to see some stoners with so many rules. Talk about restricted and uptight! I try to live by the words of Brother Langston:

    I play it cool
    I dig all jive
    That's the reason
    I stay alive
    My motto
    As I live and learn
    Is dig and be dug in return

  33. Yeah.. corner tha bowls. I use a torch lighter, hits smooth & if you try to blaze that whole bowl it’ll shoot embers on you to show your ass. Lol. Nobody can pocket my lighter either.
    Aside from “etiquette” if you got alot of bud, go for tha peach White Owl Blunt Xtras. Take damn near a whole quarter to fill, but wit mainly 3 people hittin on it smoked a little over an hour. And depending on roach size, you’ll at least get a pinner joint out of it. If not more.

  35. if youre hosting a party/ having people over to smoke…wait for them to get high dont smoke all the good stuff for yourself first! oh and always roll the joint in front of the ppl youre smokin with if you dont know them well cuz its sketch to smoke a joint that some guy you dont know just pulled out of his pocket

    Post a Reply
  36. CORNER THE BOWL. Don't be that dick lighting all the green especially it's it's good. Also don't bitch about a spoof if you're smoking at someone's place, safety is safety, they are probably being careful for a good reason.

  37. flicking joints, blunts hard….. my buddy always does it ill snap sometimes and freak out on him and he goes aaaaaaaaaaaaa i forgot his been doing it for years i cant take that shit anymore but fuck i dont blame him we be smoking the best shit! poor dude has a memory of a fish

    About the etiquette, it's a pretty solid and accurate one, some rules are a tad extravagant but meh, it's only guidelines, every smoker circle has it's own "rules

  41. Ok I agree with all of them except for always pass to the left. When I smoke in big groups we just pass it to whoever wants the next hit because were usually just up talkin to each other.

  45. never hang on to the joint for too long like ur fingers were glued to it!thats one of the most irritating thing to do.pass it.and never waste the weed by blowing the smoke out of your mouth direct.inhale!!! dont suck on it with your mouth/cheeks.suck/inhale straight from the lungs.that way the hit is stronger and there no waste of weed.and by looking at some of your comments regarding the provider of the weed gets the first puff, thats bullshit.comeon man just enjoy.and weed seems rather expansive in west

  46. i think it's pretty sad that we have to write down all these rules and shit, yeah they are things you should most def, go by,, but come on, reading and making rules is a waste of time, why can't we all just have some common sense about this shit and a polite attitude?

  47. Rule we have, if you have history of being a tad clutzy when your high, get one of your buddies to hold the Bong/Hukka for you ha, we have a friend like that and she it totally cool with that rule cause she dropped it once a cried cause she spilled the bud(We had more lol) but that and

    Tho shall not exhale instead of inhale into a water pipe!

  53. ok i like these there are a few id change but most everone can say that. one thing though is if in a car. rotation always goes counter clock (if in left seat driving car) i say this because the driver is the high-man/womans best friend or should be. due to the fact he has ur life in his hands. and handing the blunt/bowl/joint to him from behind is difficult and some cant do it. so why not make it easier and have the front passenger pass it to him so without skipping roto, counter clockwise is perfect. and with the cracking of the windows. it all just depends i say. because if ur going somewhere and ur not trying to smell like weed, i leave the windows down completly if i have a blunt or joint(if i roll the dubie of course of a vet does) but if im with my boys and we dont need to worry about our cologne. then we keep the windows up completly box it out. i mean its easier with my eclipse cause the windows have a light grey tint. but it also depends on if u know the area. if ur new to the area or not used to driving high. then dont. lol. and the puff puff pass rule is for amateurs or, lol or if your smoking with a group and your the one who brought to wraps and bud and no1 pitches. then you have a right to regulate but at least with my crew we dont care. we roll our stuff right so they last a long time. even our dubies. so we can usually hold on to them for a few mins each and itll go around quite a few times. just how you roll it. also i hate it when ppl roll blunts and swear they pearled it. but then there are holes or gaps that stops the smoking quality. or those who roll super tight and u cant even pull. those ppl should let pros roll and if you are new pls dont be afraid to have some1 else roll even if u bought the stuff nothing is worse than a trash blunt cause you lose alot of what you bought. i did that for awhile i had others roll for me when i was learning how to. but id always have enough to practice on my own and just deal with my trash blunts alone. oh and at least for those like me who try and only mess with that cronic. lol me personlly if i invite you to smoke dont bring ppl. i mean if necessary ask but if we say no 4 w/e reason dont bring them. cause nothing is worse then 3 or 4 ppl smoking and 1 person not smoking but watching us smoke. we can always get them when we done. lol also be considerate of the non smokers there also. if your trying to smoke and there are ppl there that arent. go somewhere else. you never know they could have to drop the next day or w/e i think thats pretty much it lol

  54. Absolutely torching the bong/bowl hit is a no no and i see it happens constantly. If its already lit there is no need to turn a fresh bowl into dust in one hit.

    Simple way to avoid it is to not think of getting caught lol.

  56. 12 clashes with some of the others. This whole "puff puff pass" shit…..get out of the movies man. places where toking bud is legal (the netherlands) we dont worry about how many hits someone takes unless its a known mooch. in which case you just dont smoke with them. Just share your weed, let people take hits, relax and do w/e. I understand how frustrating it can be when someone holds it and tells a story, but just put your hand out, while listening to the story, and 99% of the time they will continue to talk, apologize, and hand you the j or blunt. relaxxxxx. ya'll need to burn more if your worrying so much about how many hits and how fast people are taking them. Let the bud burn baby

  57. always be ready to take a hit, dont make the man hold it forever, and when your buddys got the roach and its burning the shit out of his fingers, take it from him. or he might drop it.

  61. This isn't a rule, but I HATE when people act like they're super fucked up when they are high and act like they are drunk or something. It just makes them look obnoxious. You don't have to act different to look cool or whatever.

  62. Do NOT bring a dickhead friend with you who wants to look cool but doesn't even smoke so puffs into thier mouths ONLY & then blows it straight out! Or DO NOT BE this dickhead! It happened to me once when I brought my then boyfriend to a party & he did it. I broke up with him on the spot. God I hate fuckwits like this! HATE, HATE,HATE!

  63. Some I would add:

    If you are getting high and it wasn't yours, be grateful.
    Don't criticise the speed of the roll. Infact the person talking and being a dick about it, makes it take even longer.
    If it's not your weed, NEVER say "there's hardly any weed in that, put some more in".
    Keep the music at a level you're all comfortable with.
    And don't argue… about anything. It's really not worth it!

  64. if you drop the blunt you can still smoke…..you just FAIL now…

  65. If you know your going to go smoke and can't afford to throw in some cash, make sure to bring some chips or somethin from your pantry. These rules are good for large groups, but when it's just you and your boys, man take it easy! I mean yeah always remember the rules, but when your with your buddies, you can do the skippin thing no problem! Cause its kinda funny when the person that your skippin doesn't know it! Haha! That actually happens to me, and it's damn funny! Down here in Missouri we don't really care too much about etiquette, just be friendly, nice, and bring munchies or trees, it don't matter we all relaxed down here in the sticks =)
    Stay high my friends =)

  66. One suggestion-common sense really-if you have or are getting a cold sore, DO NOT smoke with others until its gone! You really don;t want to give them the virus.
    Thank you.

  67. New guy (or girl) always gets first toke in my circle of friends.

  68. Never pocket another's lighter
    Always share with your real homies, b/c they will always get you back
    Use a grinder instead of fingers, makes the rolling process easier for whoever is doing the deed
    Lastly, this is a big one for me and my friends, someone bring the gum. The ladies HATE smokers breath

  69. Kicking off big time about fucking up the rotation is so childish, mistakes happen, its a smoke up not a fukin dictatorship i dont give a shit what cheech and chong or whoever said…

  70. I don't know what kind of losers you guys are hanging out with but most of this would just be common sense to us. Rules for smoking…. funny stuff

  71. A friend with weed is a friend indeed. A friend who shares is a friend who cares.

  72. Wow, you missed a real biggie here… A joint never goes past more than 3 people!!

    If the group is bigger than that, have the person sitting opposite you skin up as well. That way everybody gets a decent share, and nobody complains about only getting two shitty tokes on the roach.

  73. Ya I hate when people get all down when they smoke cause the weed amplifies their mood. Dont be sad be glad

  74. Cherry Up, pass it with the ignited tip facing up. Thus allowing people to not burn themselves.

  75. here's a game i learnt in Belgium: while toking in a circle, when you're about to pass it, say a word and whoever says the other word you're thinking of gets the jay. for example i'm passing and i say Bart.. whoever says Simpson first gets the jay. it's a fun way to make the jay go around. and obviously if u see that someone hasn't gotten a single hit, throw 'em a bone!

  76. I didn't read all the comments, but a major one that bugs me is don't hold a hit for an hour. Not as much etiquette, as it is just not being a glutton, or a hog. Plus, after about 3-5 seconds it causes more brain damage, than it gets you high.

  77. if i smoke you out, you buy the munchies

  78. Rules that increase the peace are cool, but the pointless ones like most of those here (why left?,) and the bad ones (lose a turn–my ass) are uncool.

    In my circles we make sure everyone gets a green, everyone feels comfortable, everyone is an equal part of the circle.

    Why make a blessing less so by burdening it with unnecessary rules?

    And far too many of you posting comments here are uptight–smoke one and relax. Quit telling others how to enjoy their high.

  79. Yes, that using tobacco to roll a blunt when non tobacco smokers are in the circle is just plain rude.

  80. In a car, always pass it counterclockwise, so the driver never has to turn around while driving.

  81. We changed a rule… Person on your left may be a wanker, so toker asks a question and person that answers correct goes next and so on till all had their puffs…

  82. Also, never hand someone the hot end of the lighter when smoking a bowl. Always turn the plastic end so no one gets burned!
