Proper Smoking Etiquette -- What are rules you should follow when smoking with people?

Are you a rude or mindful group smoker?

 

What better way to enjoy some dank green than to share it with some friends? But before you get started, lets go over some etiquette checks to make sure you're up to par with your marijuana manners. 

 

1. Puff, Puff, Pass

This is the oldest rule in the book. Everyone and their grandma knows this! If you're taking a hit from a shared joint or blunt, hit it twice and pass. But if it's from a bowl, hit it once and pass! Nothing is worse than smoking with a hog. 

 

2. Share Your Green

If you show up to a smoke session expecting for everyone else to smoke you out, that's just not cool. (Unless, you're in a special predicament, we've all been there before.) But bringing your own stash, can be a gesture of kindness especially since weed can get pretty expensive. 

  

3. Don't Peer Pressure

If someone doesn't want to smoke, you don't want to be that person egging them on. You don't know the reason for why that person doesn't wany to light up, and even if you did -- just respect that person's judgement and decision. Also, if someone has already smoked but doesn't want to continue hitting, don't force them into continuing! 

 

4. Pass to the Left

Keeping synchonized in rotation is vital to the fluidity of the smoke session. By passing to the left, there's no second thought on what to do with the joint/blunt/bowl after you're done hitting it. This keeps the flow fluid, and everyone happy! 

 

5. Keep Your Saliva To Yourself

This really pertains to joints and blunts, but in all honestly, no one likes to hit a joint thats sopping wet. Just try and keep your saliva to yourself. On the bright side, dry mouth is a common side-effect of marijuana, so just acknowledge the amount of spit you're producing and make sure to keep it at a low the next time the joints' handed to you. 

 

6. Don't Get the Group Sick

I know it sucks to be sick, it sucks even more to be sick at a smoking session. But no one likes to be ill, and so if you're considerate, let it be known to the group of your ailment and keep it to yourself! If they're your real homies, they'll figure out a way to get you lit as well. 

 

Follow these rules, but don't take them too seriously. All rules are appendable depending on the group you're with, but rather guidelines to help ensure that everyone is happy and comfortable!
