    Cause like first of all. it is very hard to type when high. i hit backspace way too many times. and forget what i am talking about. or how to talk. or what is what i am saying. i don't know if it is always right. or if i should say more stuff.

    but also i cannot remember short term when i am high.

    see cause i already forgot my other points i am almost sure i had when i started this thread. that makes me blah for right now.

    i don't follow in line real well either. it's always in circles. i don't know. i'm high right now and see i been restraining it to the weekends so i'm getting higher quicker type of thing. if this is not supposed to be talked about in here, please leave it away. but man i wish i could focus when high but i feel really funny like i want to laugh all time when i'm high and but also i don't know. i lose thoughts realy quick. so i have to type short and fast. but fast is hard cause i can't type very good when high. lot's of backspacing. drives me crazy. but like i want to do stuff else when i'm high but i need to maintain control like being sober but still feel the high. ya know what i mean? make sense? my girlfriend can smoke an ounce a day and still be fully functioning. that's what i mean. i want to be fully.

    seriously i cannot even do that when sober so i don't like u high or sober! if i really want to do something and focus on it, i have to talk to myself through it outloud over and over again. otherwise now i just save it for when watching a movie with my girlfriend. used to do it when going on dates but she got her license suspended and no way in heck i drive high. omg if anyone knows this feeling you know what i mean. it's like crazy schizo mixed with i can hear everything...hyper focused like.

    eta: it's the first day of that monthyl time so i wanted to chill my tummy tonight. that's why i smoke tonight. no movie tonight. but i watched race to witch mountain and fast and furious latest one the other day. good stuff.

    Easy: don't bother.

    Get a tape recorder and let yourself run wild. Record it all; type it up later.

    I could get into the chemical reactions, half life cycles of THC etc but for most normal humans, you short-circuit the neural pathways and essentially create a chemical form of retardation. It's physically impossible to function at a normal level of motor skill when you're high because your brain literally isn't working right any more.

    That's not to say don't get high. A lot of people find themselves in amazing states of relaxation or agitation when their brains stop working normally and can be incredibly inventive and creative. They just don't type or drive or even talk worth a shit while it's happening.

    So: record it and enjoy it. Don't try to force yourself into things like typing. It'll just frustrate you.

    Over time, you'll develop a tolerance for it and find that you function better. You'll also learn to moderate your intake to a balanced level between the "high", the creativity and the impairment.

    At least all the regular pot smokers I know do.

    Oh, and if you're mixing it with alcohol, you might as well just take sleeping pills cuz your body can only do so much with a chemical imbalance until you sleep it off.

    Sleep is part of the healing process and you may be getting sleepy because you really need it and only allow yourself to truly relax when you smoke.

    4:20..... damn. Not yet. ;)

    ya know--i've considered doing this [recorder thing]--i think i will get one today as a matter of fact.

    funny thing is, i rarely drink. i just don't like the taste of most alcohol. :/

    i went to bed shortly after at posting....i kept trying to read threads and got so freaking lost in them last night that it was frustrating me...couldn't tell if the posters were just posting nonsense i couldn't understand or if i was just so far lost so I just called it a night. i always end up calling my gf the devil [literally....literally] when i'm high and she doesn't particularly like it so it was just as well anyhow. Thanks for that suggestion though--just reiterated what I had thought about a couple of times so if it is suggested by someone else too without my having mentioned it before even, it hasssss to be a good idea! ...my thought process anyhow...

    eta: wiz....your freaking post last night...i was about to write a reply of been there too until i got to the just kidding part....you had me upppppppp in one sec and crashed in the next....not cool man! =D i have this one lady from the gyro place up the block [a hole in the wall with BEAST azz gyros] that i swear i think she knows when i come in high cause she always 'messes' with my head like that too...has me going for a split second only to drop me on my head! i keep telling my gf i'm going to quit smoking cause i don't like being all retarded like but then the weekend comes around.....maybe one day!

    Solution: smoke weed all the time.

    Then it won't be cause such a stir to your system.

    Serious question - why do you have to get high?

    Never seen the appeal myself, rather have a beer or six instead......sure, it probably doesn't sound as cool as 'wow man I am so high I can't type blah blah blah' but I enjoy it :)

    Agree completely - working without a liver is not a good option :)
    Perhaps I didn't phrase the question that well then - does doing drugs whilst playing the BH game make it easier to think out of the box, to think dodgy things?

    When I get a few jars on board I just like hugging people :D

    Eh, If i lived in the UK I probably wouldn't enjoy smoking so much either... I hear the laws are draconic over there.

    lol what? I never even heard of anyone getting busted for a possession charge.. even drug dealers get it relatively easy in the uk.

    The laws in the USA seem to be 100 times worse unless you live in cali or something.

    Depends on which state you're in, 11 states now have medical marijuana laws that make it basically legal, and alot of states have decriminalized it. Where I'm from, they don't bother you with under a ounce, not worth the paperwork, and if you have a medical card they let you go.

    I even heard in oregon if you're a medical user you get free weed. Not sure about that though.

    I think davejug said it first - Stay away from it

    (or at least until you accomplish a task)

    I use it as a reward, and yes, I get pretty stoned when I am getting a lot done.

    (lights a joint and savors the flavor...)

    Use it to your advantage, and don't use it when it isn't.

    It really doesn't matter if it's been legalised on the state level or not, that's symbolic at best. Federal law overpowers it. It's still illegal.

    However, that doesn't mean that cops won't let you off. ;)

    I found through experimentation that while I could enhance the experience of what I happened to be doing at the time with hallucinogenics, I could not focus on serious tasks. It also seemed to be impossible for me to actually acquire new skills or become more than what I was already.

    As an example:

    I am a musician and while playing the piano high I am capable of improvising on any melody with almost virtuosic skill. While playing I will be absolutely convinced that what I'm playing is ground breaking and particularly gorgeous. When I listen back to it though ( I record everything that I play) it usually sounds very alien and not at all something that I would actually keep or let others listen too.

    I know that the experience is different for everyone but I think that a good rule of thumb is to not mix business with recreation. At least, I can't imagine myself getting anything productive done in a marketing sense if I still smoked.

    a cops job is to enforce state law. a federal agents job is to enforce federal law.

    So unless your getting pulled over by a FBI, CIA, or DEA agent, arresting a state citizen for violating federal law won't hold up so well in a state court.

    here's a article regarding a california state appeals court ruling regarding state police officers duty to return medical marijuana to patients if seized:

    http www sfgate com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/11/30/BAIFTLCNQ.DTL

    the California Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court have declined to hear an appeal of that decision... so for the time being, thats where it stands.

    sometimes it shocks me how ignorant fellow americans are about their own goverment.
    No this isn't a dictatorship, they can't just kick your door in because they told you they could...

    smoking weed is often associated with creativity? right? Well, my friends smoke weed a lot and every time he would talk and laugh endlessly.

    It's quite a funnyy sight..
