McDonald's again. I was jonesing for a Shamrock Shake. (Because just making one is such a chore.) Three people came in behind me, bellied up to the register next to me, and - well, it's hard to say what reached my perception centers first: the ringleader demanding FIFTEEN McDoubles, or the persistent and pungent miasma of recreational narcotics.

You know, the last time I indulged, I just stayed home and watched the walls melt; I didn't actively go out in public endeavoring to perpetuate a stereotype. One of them actually got the giggles to go with his munchies - those high-pitched, resin-soaked giggles that only seem to come out of people on precarious amounts of pot. I sincerely hoped none of them had been driving.

Maybe there were wacky misadventures on their way to the McDonald's, and somebody will make a stoner comedy out of them. Or maybe they were hoping there'd be wacky misadventures. It did seem a bit early in the day for either weed or wacky hijinks.

I'd had to leave too - mari-wowie gives me a headache.:(

As a side note, I hate needles and have to force myself just to take the prescribed pills my doctor gives me - so I think I'd have made a terrible drug addict.:lol:

I sometimes smell it on customers at my work, too. There are varieties which I think smell okay, and some which smell like skunk. I honestly have more issues with cigarette smoke than pot, but for some random reason I think cigar (and campfire/wood burning stove) smoke is nice. I have a weird sense of smell.

And regarding the stereotype, I get SO tired of these. Just act like people and not clones! Yeah, I get that you're young and shopping with your sorority sisters (or cheer squad, etc) but do you really need to be that way? Saying "like" every other word, staying glued to your phone, sipping your skinny hazelnut macchiato with a straw... They tend to almost outright ignore me, or give that amused superior look. It's the girl version of the "Bro."

There's a house around the corner from us where we believe at least one or two of the occupants get into the green stuff a fair bit. My partner is able to identify it based on smell because he had to practice identifying it as part of his security training (he actually has completed the certification, but didn't pay for the license. He now funnily enough wants to work in IT security :lol:). Ever since then I've always noticed that the house smells very heavily of incense whenever I walk past it (it's on the way to the shops and the train station)

Which of course has made me guilty when I go to burn the stuff as we suspect our landlord lives in the complex and don't want to make him suspicious!
(To further clarify, there's a massive townhouse and a "midget townhouse" on the property. The townhouse has been divided up into four small units while the "midget townhouse" has two rooms, one on each floor (plus a bathroom under the stairs). We live in the midget townhouse. Our landlord I believe lives in the section of the townhouse that somewhat directly faces us and the apartment below him has an Indian family living there. The other occupants of the other two apartments we've never seen.)

Getting back to the "I like smokey smells" I have no issue with campfire smoke and think it smells nice...plus I've had medieval food cooked over it. :D (Mmm...beef and stout[beer] stew)

Reminds me of the guy who came into the petrol station one night, stoned up to the eyeballs and buying about four bags of crisps. XD No, he wasn't driving; he was walking. Damn near walked in front of a car, too. O_o

You would think that working the closing shift in a supermarket meant I could identify the smell of Mary Jane, but nope.

It's interesting to see what you all think it smells like. To me, it smells exactly the way the word "dank" sounds but in a "good" kinda way. I mean. Usually. I once had the misfortune of coming across a LIVE plant and it smelled like dirty gym socks. Usually the stuff in baggies actually sort of smells like tangy christmas trees.

Gosh, I haven't smoked in AGES (years???????) but I can smell it from a mile away and I usually just grin creepily at people and they get paranoid and leave.

Live in Colorado so I have now been exposed to it for the first time in my life (I don't run with people who are into that kind of thing...nothing against use in moderation now that it's legal, but I do believe in following laws and don't really like being around people with chemical-compromised brains). Someone has apparently been toking up in the hallway (which is not allowed under smoking policies...but who follows rules if they can't throw you in jail, right?) It does smell like gym socks. Which is odd because burned hemp smells sweet.

I smelled it in the ladies' room in HS (had to visit during lunch period and the ones in the building I usually went to were closed for classes). I went back to class and had a headache for the rest of the day. To me it smelled rather strong, pungent and musty. :puke:

When I got home and tried to explain the smell to my Mom, she said it sounded to her like it was pot.

Flash forward a few years after Mom had married her 3rd (and last) ex hubby. His younger brother (only 6 months older than my brother) snuck some into the house and lit up in my office (had temporarily cleared it out so he could have a place to stay on weekends to get away from his grandparents, but that's another topic for another thread.) :eek::mad::puke:

Started smelling that crap and my head started hurting . . . went and got Mom out of bed and told her what I was smelling. One Come To Jesus meeting later, he was taking that stuff and smoking it elsewhere and I didn't have to worry about smelling that junk in my house. :wave:

So would I. I'm allergic to it. Makes my eyes swell shut after I want to rip my eyelids off from itching.

I get itchy eyes, but the main problem is it usually makes me curl up into a little ball as my body tries to reject my lungs from my chest with coughing. Ends up giving me a headache as well that lasts for hours...

I work in fast food... >_<

Thankfully the regulars that get the munchies know my voice and give me a heads up so I can run away now, or just don't come in smelling of it. I like my regular pot heads. They are nice. It's the little brats smoking in mommy and daddy's escalade that give me issues. >_<

Occasionally we get some stoners, and the interactions can be amusing. I was once called on to settle a snack argument (Cheetos Puffs vs. Jax), and another time was introduced to the Hot Pocket personality test. Apparently I'm 'cool beans' and shift lead is boring :lol:

You'd think being stoned out of one's gourd would mean an inability to operate SCO, but that's not the case...they can navigate it better than some of the sober ones.

DGC -- Perhaps I should have clarified. The customers who *ahem* partake whom I brought pizzas to apparently allowed the aroma to just sit in the house, sans ventilation. Thus, the aroma was specifically of STALE (and probably really cheap) wonder grass. Heck, even the driver we had who sold the stuff while on his route wasn't stupid enough to "partake" while on duty, nor to come in smelling like he had.

I'm not gonna get into the politics of weed smoking here, because my views are many and complicated, mostly owing to the fact that I was a bit of a stoner.
(Though, never at work, or in public. Special occasion weekends only, bro.)

One thing I learned very early on was: never smoke that crap inside. Smoke it out the back somewhere so the smell clears away, or, if you have to smoke it inside, do it in the bathroom with the exhaust fan on. Wash your clothes the next day and take a damn shower, not everyone likes the smell.

And NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE HIGH. Rule number one right there. If you call for pizza, leave the delivery driver a tip (Australia does not have a tipping culture/expectation as waiters/fast food workers all get minimum wage at least) for putting up with your silly ass at the door.

Basically, never make you being high someone else's problem.

Latekin, I really wish other people obeyed those easy rules too.

But I would add 1 more: Have respect for your neighbours.

Basically, don't smoke it for 6 hours at a time (for weeks) in your back yard when it means your neighbours can't open a window or turn on the air con without it filling their house. 35+ degree heat and I couldn't use the air con because it was coming trough. Couldn't even put washing on the clothes line without it stinking. 5 minutes in the backyard and it was like being Dumbo when he had alcohol. :rant:

Dad ended up going around and basically saying 'We know you smoke. We don't mind you smoking. But if you don't cut it back we will call the cops.' Two days later, he was back to smoking 1 or 2 a day.

Never smoked the stuff and have only be near people smoking it twice and both left me feeling ill. But I can smell it from a mile away. To me it's a cross between stale cigar smoke and burning compost. :puke:

Your neighbor sounds like an inconsiderate idiot. Also, he's one of the "sheah boi, wake n' bake!" losers.
Mistake Number 1: Never smoke weed in heat like that, you'll make yourself and the people around you feel sick.
Mistake Number 2: Be considerate, smoke at night when people are less likely to be in their yards and bothered by your smoke.
Mistake Number 3: If your neighbors are cool about you making a mistake, don't freaking repeat it. Also, give those neighbors a fruit basket or something, cause they're pretty amazing.
Mistake Number 4: 6 hour sessions on your own? Nobody needs to be that high, ever. Make it a social occasion with some close friends if you must, but crap, share the high around dude.
Although, you never go above four hours, otherwise some newb tries to drink the bong water.
Mistake Number 5: If you need to get baked every damn day, you have a problem, and the weed isn't helping. In fact, if you need a coping mechanism that much, lay off the weed bro, it doesn't help problems.

As much as I do like to get stoned sometimes, some folks are really, really bad with weed. And some shouldn't ever pick the stuff up.

I never really got the thing with the weed smell...to me, it just smells like weed. Last batch I had, I left sitting a bit too long, ended up smelling maybe like...dunno, organicky leaf pile sorta smell with a sharp/sour note?

Yeah he was an inconsiderate asswipe. He was out of work at the time and spent all day smoking it while his wife was at work. His wife didn't realise how much he was smoking until dad went over there.

He also had around 200 pigeons in his backyard at the time. Pretty sure none of those birds were going to be flying straight after about 5 minutes. :lol:

When we were clearing out my grandmother's house, I found mom's weed stash from when she was in college (how did I not get into it when I was a pup?...or maybe I did, that household was so damn strange I have no idea what I did some days)

Never got a chance to find out if it was still good or not (her idea, not mine :lol: ). Someone--probably my idjit uncle--threw it out (he would have had to have gone through my backpack to even find it).
