For some, being in your twenties means having fun and seizing new opportunities, all while trying to figure yourself out. But for others, it’s a time when you’re just starting to settle down and get your life together. Regardless of how you’re spending these years, people getting high in their twenties have a lot in common. From having to pay for your own pot to no longer having to hide it from mom and dad, here are ten things you’ll understand if you’re a weed smoker in your 20s.
1. Getting used to working to pay for your weed
The days of using your allowance money to pay for your bud are long gone. Now, you have to actually get a job if you want to keep smoking the herb.
2. Spending half of your paycheck on pot
If you’re fortunate enough to have landed a decent job by now, or just know where the good deals are, then this may not apply to you. However, for those of who are just entering the working world, you know the struggle is real.
3. Not having to hide your weed from your parents
Unless you still live at home, hiding your stash from mom and pop is no longer necessary. That also means no more getting grounded over a little weed, or having to witness it being flushed down the toilet.
4. Having to hide weed from your kids
First, you had to hide your pot from your parents. Then, you became a parent and had to start hiding it again. It’s an endless battle.
5. The joy of actually knowing what it is that you’re smoking
It wasn’t until your twenties that you realized how many strains are out there. While growing up, weed used to be just weed, as far as you were concerned. Now, you can at least tell people what you’re inhaling.
6. Some consumption methods are better than others
You didn’t need to be concerned about your health as a teenager. But once you entered your 20s, you decided it was probably time to ditch the aluminum can for something less harsh on the lungs, like a vaporizer.
7. Getting high before a college exam is necessary
If you’re in college, then your life practically revolves around preparing for an exam. And once that pre-test anxiety kicks in, you know that your trusty herb will help ease the nervousness.
8. Waking and baking for motivation
During your 20s, you’re just getting used to juggling work, school, friends, and family. Some days, it can all be too overwhelming. But once you have your first joint of the day, you’re all set and ready to tackle anything that comes your way.
9. Smoking resin when you’re broke as a joke
For the most part, people in their twenties are broke. Between paying bills and college necessities, it’s not always easy coming up with enough money for pot. While smoking leftover bowl resin is just nasty, desperate times calls for desperate measures.
10. Adulting is best done while high
Folding laundry and doing dishes is much more tolerable when you’re stoned.
