I got this list of a pretty interesting website www.erowid.org [singlepic id=278 w=250h=240 float=right]
_________________________ Smoking Etiquette [the unchecked version] _________________________ 1) the person who rolls the joint (no matter whose weed it is) gets to spark up the joint and get first hits... 2) if someone rolls a nice joint, its good to give the person a complement on his rolling skills... 3) if someone starts bogarting the bowl and starts using the xcuse that its okay forhim to bogart it since it's his weed, this is definetely not cool. the punishment depends on the quality of the weed and how much he put in. (if it was real crappy and he was real cheap with it, then you bug on the person and rag on him :-) 4) if someone is too palsy to light the bowl (due to being too stoned or the person is just a retard :-) then they must relinquish contorl of the lighter to someone more able to get it lit. --this does NOT mean the person who lights gets free hits... this priveleige tends to get abused ("hey lemme light it for you...") 5) if someone is so much of a palsy that they blow INTO thebowl and blow all the shit on the floor, this person must be ragged on and the person cant smoke on the next round (unless it was his stuff) 6) if you smoke with someone in your house, you should let them eat some munchy food you may have lying around.. don't be cheap withyou food if you have food... 7) if someone who'se smoked asks for a sip of your soda, you must give him some.. (drymouth is not fun) 8) converse of (7): if you ask for a sip, don't take a large gulp 9) if smoking froma bong or a joint, never put the whole thing in your mouth and get it all sopping wet.. its disgusting and it messed up the joint. 10) if your smoking from a bong and these not enough in thebowl for a whole other hit, you should save the smoke in the chamber for the next person..(dont let go of the rushhold or 'carb' and take it all yourself) 11) never bogart 12) never bitch about someone else's weed being no good! If you don't like it don't smoke it! 13) if a friend gets you high sometime in the future you need to get that friend high 14) Thou shalt not turn down a smoke. Never! 15) phrased in the form of a narrative: OK. My buddy and I are sitting around smoking the weed that I just scored. After flaming-up, and taking a few moderate puffs, I pass it on. The sounds that follow can only be described as vacuum-like. After an a couple of huge, lung-busting tokes, the guy passes back the remnants of something that could have, at some point, been a joint. If it's not completely "canoed", then it's absolutely soaked. I not-so-subtly drop that old Cheech&Chong line "Hey man, can I wring it out for you?" He just looks at me. 16) I have noticed the following: After smoking-up, the odd "crass- monkey" will actually eat the stained, disgusting roach. This must be because they want that "extra bit" of oil, resin, or whatever's left on the paper. This situation can be compared to the patron of a good restaurant picking up his "as good as empty" plate and licking off the remaining morsels of food. Sure he got that little pool of gravy, but was it really worth it? 17) If you buy weed from a friend or a friend of a friend, it is polite to roll a joint, (a small one, if you wish) and smoke with the person who sells you the stuff. 18) It is very impolite to hand someone an empty bowl, without notifying that person of it's possible cashed-ness. A proper warning would be 'Here ya go...I think it might be cashed. 19) The person who fills the bowl is given the opportunity to take the first hit. It doesn't matter who's bowl it is. 20) Always remember to thank a person who has gotten you high. I know it sounds silly, but I know people who never say thanks and it gets a littly annoying. 21) The person who brought the bud picks the music. 22) When using a bong, don't slobber all over it. 23) Again, when using a bong, DON'T blow out the ashes, unless that's what the "homeowner" does. 24) NEVER go to someone's house EXPECTING them to catch you a buzz. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule... 25) If you spill the bong, clean it up! (And don't forget to put water back in it!!) roach rules ------------ 1) when the roach gets too small, if someone hasa problem with it, it is common curtesy here to put the roach in a bowl and finish it that way.. that way the people who don't mind burjing their fingers dont get it all. ===[text]=== Hmm, among everyone i know who used to smoke the stuff, there was a tradition of roller's privellege. whoever rolled the joint, got to light it and take the first puff. then it just got passed on. great fun when several were started at once and someone passed it the opposite direction to the others after lighting it.... [next] Around here, if the group is smoking out of a bowl (e.g. pipe or bong), the packer of the bowl (and usually the owner of the bag) gives it to the next person to spark up. However, if someone rolls a joint (again, usu. the owner of the bag), that person gets to spark it up. (I guess because it takes more effort to roll a joint, and they "deserve(?)" to light up the masterpiece.) [next] I always thought that if you were buying from a FOAF, it was polite for them to roll a joint and smoke it with you before you buy, kind of like a sample.
