For some, smoking the herb in public is a piece of cake. But for others, it can be quite the pain in the ass. At the present time, weed is illegal on a federal level. That means even if you live in a legal state, like Colorado, there are still places where you aren’t allowed to toke. And for those that live in states where pot is illegal, the options are much more limited. From praying that you don’t get busted to wondering if you’re being stared at, here are nine thoughts we’ve all had when trying to smoke in public.
1. “Please go away”
Have you ever sat in your car ready to light up but too many people are around? If so, then you know how annoying it is to wait for them to leave. It seems like it takes forever, especially when you’re dying to smoke.
2. “Screw it, I’m smoking, and I don’t care what happens”
If a pot smoker wants to smoke, then they are going to make it happen. No ifs, and’s, or buts. It’s just weed.
3. “But then again, I really hope I don’t get caught”
The one thing a cannabis smoker worries about the most while smoking in public is potentially getting caught. While some states will just give you a slap on the wrist for a couple of grams of pot, others might throw you in jail.
4. “They are staring at me, I just know it”
Sparking the herb in public can make you paranoid. Before you know it, you feel like everyone is staring at you while you try to toke in peace. Then you end up getting frustrated because of it.
5. “This feels nice”
Having restrictions when it comes to where you can smoke sucks. But when you decide just to go ahead and step outside with your joint in hand, it makes you feel so free. Not to mention, it’s a whole lot nicer than staying shacked up in your room.
6. “I wish I could do this all the time”
Imagine being able to smoke anywhere you want whenever you want. No trouble, no complications, and no complaints. It’s safe to say that would be every weed smoker’s dream come true.
7. “I wonder if that person is getting high too”
You’re out and about, enjoying your bud and surroundings when all of a sudden you smell a familiar smell nearby. Maybe it’s just the smell of your own pot, but you can’t help but wonder if someone around you is up to the same thing as you.
8. “Can anyone else smell the dank?”
Between the bud you’re carrying on you and all the smoke, you know for a fact that you smell like a walking weed nugget. But does anyone else?
9. “I hope that’s not an undercover”
You never know where a cop in disguise might be.
