What you’re about to read was written by our own dear member Lotus. You absolutely, under no circumstances, should in any way perform the actions described here. Now that the obvious is out of the way, I’ll tell you that Lotus is a very intense automotive enthusiast; he just loves cars.
One thing stoners love to do in legalization arguments is compare weed to alcohol. One of the main problems with alcohol is drunk driving, and many stoners believe that it is less dangerous to drive high, than drunk. In fact, many of us believe we are more cautious when high. I suffer very little impairment when high, unless I’m just stoned out of my gourd, but I will say that people should not be driving while high. Though it may be less dangerous than alcohol, and probably is, you are still not 100%, and that is dangerous, considering most of you have a hard time staying in your own damn lane while sober.
That said, driving while baked is probably the most awesome experience you will ever have, given the right conditions. It’s everything that’s great about weed all in one moving package. If you have a luxury car, or something sporty but still comfortable, just relaxing in the car is great in and of itself. Cool air, comfortable seats, and interesting things to look at.
The wonderful thing about cars is that they are so multi-dimensional you never get bored with them. Pop in your favorite stoner music, and crank up the stereo. This peaceful night out just turned into a jam session. It’s especially nice if you have a good sound system, particularly one with some nice subs. The vibrations feel amazing on the high body, and it’s like getting a really loud massage. Mine actually has a DVD player, and while making it 200% more dangerous, watching music videos while driving around is probably the coolest thing you can ask for.
If you’re like me, you need a little adrenaline rush for the day to be worthwhile. Weaving in and out of traffic like an ass is a great way to achieve this. Please note that while I do weave in and out of traffic, I’m not insane about it, and I never do anything I think I don’t have a 100% chance of completing. Also, if you have a fast car, just accelerating is unbelievably fun, and substantially safer than weaving through traffic.
Finally, cars are really good at taking you places. Unless it’s 5 pm, you can probably have food within about 5 minutes of getting into your car. And the most important thing when you’re stoned is sustenance.
Yep, cars are pretty much the bee’s knees. Driving high is fun as hell, and the fact that you can be entertained pretty much constantly is a definite plus. Road trips with tons of weed, though, I can’t recommend doing something so reckless if you don’t want to go to prison, are extremely fun. Keep an eye out for the 5-0, and happy driving.
Seriously, guys: don’t do this shit or you’ll probably die. Leave your comments below.
