Too stoned to find something to do? Here are some tips for what to do (and what NOT to do) while high.
The Best High Activities:
You’re hungry, but all you have is Nutella and Pringles. Well, you’re in luck! You just may be stoned enough to enjoy some ridiculous munchie-food. Here’s a link to some stoner-inspired snacks. But you may want to avoid the stove, oven, and any sharp knives.
2. Browse YouTube
3. Arts and Crafts
Relive your fond memories at camp, only stoned and in the comfort of your own home! Make a tie-dye tapestry, use magazine clippings to make a collage, or fashion a friendship bracelet for your best bud (as a thank you for taking care of your high ass).
4. Board Games
CandyLand never looked so delicious. Other great games to play while stoned: Cards Against Humanity, charades, and Twister. However, you may want to avoid Monopoly and The Game of Life. Those can get pretty intense.
5. Go To The Park
Those parents aren’t judging you– they’re just jealous they can’t get high right now. Avoid trespassing when possible, but visiting parks and playgrounds while stoned is the best. My favorite is the swing, because it gets you way higher.
6. Jam Out
With all the talented musicians at DU, there are plenty of opportunities to jam out with friends. Playing or listening to music is the perfect high activity because it allows you to socialize with friends without the pressure of having to maintain a conversation.
7. Watch Cartoons
Most creators of cartoons probably smoke weed anyways. Also, it’s fun to go back and spot all the scandalous innuendos you missed as a kid.
8. Write Poetry
Notice I didn’t specify “good” poetry. But for a lot of people, getting stoned is the perfect inspiration. Fun fact: it’s believed that Shakespeare smoked weed.
9. See A Play
Speaking of Shakespeare, getting high and going to the theater is one of the most fun things to do. It’s like watching a movie, but trippier! Plus, you’ll feel more worldly after visiting the theatre.
10. Make A Couch Fort
Once you’ve made snacks and picked out some cartoons to watch, make yourself a fort out of couch cushions and blankets! Don’t forget to make a sign: No Narcs Allowed.
The Worst Activities To Do While High:
You may be thinking, it’s not as bad as driving drunk. And you’re probably right, but that doesn’t make driving while stoned any safer. And imagine being stoned and seeing a cop in your rearview mirror. Fuck that.
2. Call Your Parents
I don’t know why you would do this. Maybe you’re feeling sentimental or homesick. Even if your parents are chill, though, talking to them would be a total buzz kill.
3. Take An Exam
Drool is NOT an acceptable answer on scantrons.
4. Cook Actual Dinner
There are infinite things that could go wrong while cooking a real meal. You could leave the stove on, forget to preheat the oven, or not want to clean up the ginormous mess you made because you were stoned. Consider treating yourself to Snarf’s instead.
5. Go To A Job Interview
No matter how much you think you’d “vibe well” at their company, no employer wants to deal with yo stoned ass.
Kids may seem stoner-friendly. They like Lunchables and Nickelodeon, but they’re a huge responsibility. Also, if you’ve ever seen scary movies, you know that kids can be pretty creepy sometimes.
Why memorize pi when you could eat it?
8. Organize Your Room
This may seem like a simple, productive activity you could do while stoned. But your room will probably look messier after you spend hours emptying out your closet for no reason.
9. Email Your Professor
This is a sure-fire way to spend 45 minutes writing two sentences of text. Plus, they’re not going to read it today anyways. They’re probably stoned right now, too.
10. Watch The News
You deal with frightening news updates on a daily basis. Give yourself some time to forget about the tense political climate out there. You don’t need that negative energy right now.
