11 Stages People Who Can’t Handle Weed Go Through When They Get High (As Told By Cats)

Well, it might not be 4/20, but people keep offering me weed and I know what that means: I’m going to have to explain to everyone I meet why I can’t partake. It’s not that I have a problem with weed. It’s that I never have a good time while high. I’ve tried, many times, and every time, I end up regretting it with every part of my soul. If you’re like me, you might be able to relate to the stages I’ve gone every time I’ve ever been high. I’m sure you’ll relate with at least one of the stages below.

Usually, a few friends are hanging out. One of them passes me a joint. It’s been a while, and I’m like…

What’s the worst that could happen? This isn’t “Reefer Madness,” right?

So I take a hit and my throat is on fire. I can’t stop coughing. OMG what am I doing…

?BOOM? It’s “Reefer Madness.”

Stage 1: I’m, like, instantly too high. As if a weed-bomb had been thrown on my head.

moddb.com

Yeah, not like “fun high” either. I’m knee-deep in bat country, if you know what I mean. And I can’t help but feel like my throat is on fire.

And immediately I regret my decision. WHY, BABY JESUS???????

Whyyy did I do this to myself? AGAIN.

Stage 2: Everything feels different. How come I’d never noticed my ears are so fluffly?

cutestcatpics.com

Something is terribly wrong. 

My friends are having a great time as I start to melt down. I feel outside of the club.

They’re having the time of their life, in fact.

So I remind myself: “You never get high, that’s why it feels so bad. Just act normal.”

reddit.com

Yeah, that’s it. I’ll just act normal. I look totally normal, right? You’re not that high. You got this.

Stage 3: I try to sober up by focusing on something.

But I realize I’m way higher than I originally thought.

I don’t remember my hands doing that before. I lost control over my body OMG.

4shared.com

Yeah, it’s just weed, but I see and hear things that aren’t there when I’m high.

Stage 4: Someone tries to talk to me and it goes terribly. Please go away. GO AWAY.

stonedcats.tumblr.com

I am so not ready to make small talk.

My attempt at verbal communication leaves a lot to be desired. Have I suddenly learned to speak hungarian?

kuvaton.com

The words I make with my mouth don’t match the voices in my head.

So I try blinking out some morse code. Get-me-outta-here.

queen-ant.tumblr.com

My attempts at communication have failed and I’m not having fun.

Stage 5: I’m so done with being high. Can somebody show me where is the “turn off” button? I’m completely desperate.

Please go away stoned feeling.

But I can’t just get un-high. It’s only going to get worse before it gets better.

webpark.ru

This is supposed to be fun?

Stage 6: Mid freakout, my friends realize I’m not okay. But they’re all so high the first thing they do is laugh. Not joking.

webpark.ru

Everything is too overwhelming.

They realize I’m freaking out and ask me if they can do something to make me feel better. I respond:

webpark.ru

SOS

They tell me to relax, close my eyes, or meditate. But that just makes things worse. I mean it.

dailydawdle.com

Anxiety is at an all time high and I can’t even remember what I was thinking about two minutes ago.

Stage 7: Now I believe all conspiracies I’ve ever heard. I don’t wanna leave this corner ever again in life.

@hjh0568 / Twitter

This is supposed to be fun and all I can think about is how there’s probably going to be a problem.

And I’m getting super paranoid and suspicious of everyone. And even of myself (if I’m really me why is this cat my spirit animal?). 

SHEEP FILMS

WHICH ? FRIEND ? IS ? READING ? MY ? THOUGHTS? And why is this cat my spirit animal?

Stage 8: The munchies. Rice with peanut butter and tuna has never tasted so delicious. Btw, I had no idea my stomach could handle so much food.

stonedcats.tumblr.com

My friends offer me food, but I’m still too paranoid to eat it.

Give me another carrot juice with canned beans, I just need food right now otherwise my belly might kill me.

stonedcats.tumblr.com

Suddenly food has a new meaning and food just tastes way better.

Stage 9: Fetal position. For me, this is the best part of being high so far.

Life hack: curling up can protect you from bears and bad highs.

Stage 10: Making it to the other side. There certainly is life beyond those gray walls.

terriblycute.com

I’m over the hump. I can feel my senses returning to me and the fear and anxiety are washed away and I feel like I’m finally crawling out of the pit of despair. It’s great!

Stage 11: Short-term memory loss. Usually a few friends are hanging out. One of them passes a joint to me. It’s been a while, and I’m like…

@roninicolee / Instagram

What’s the worst that can happen? LOL.

Share this because chances are you or someone in your group is as paranoid as me.

TikTok Suspended A Mexican Politician For Celebrating The Pass Of A Marijuana Bill By Toking

Fierce

TikTok Suspended A Mexican Politician For Celebrating The Pass Of A Marijuana Bill By Toking

TikTok but don’t toke.

Nayeli Salvatori, a Mexican congresswoman who is a representative for the 10th district of the state of Puebla, recently got into hot water with TikTok after she posted a video of herself smoking marijuana. The politician, who is also a member of the Social Encounter Party, uploaded her video with the song “Light my Fire” by The Doors and added text to her video which read, “ya es legal” (it is legal) and “Felicidades” (congratulations). She uploaded the video to celebrate Mexico’s Senate vote to decriminalize marijuana. 

TikTok disabled Salvatori’s account citing a violation of its guidelines.

The TikTok’s community guideline that was violated was one that prohibits users from sharing ‘content that displays drugs, drug consumption, or encourages others to make, use, or trade drugs or other controlled substances.’

After her account was suspended for violating TikTok’s community guidelines, Salvatori went to Twitter to upload the video from TikTok. The video remains there and is now being used to discuss the controversy. 

“It’s been more than a year that the theme of legalization of cannabis has been in talks in Congress, of course, it is a celebration!!! It’s obvious that it will be approved!!! Relax, smoke didn’t come out of the pipe because it didn’t have anything, but I love when my tweets are under fire!” read the tweet which was posted in Spanish. 

Salvatori has since shared her new TikTok account with users online, while she waits to be given access to her old one.

Last Thursday, Mexico’s Senate approved the measure with a vote of 82 to 18 to pave the way to legalize recreational marijuana use.

The bill is not officially law yet, as it originated in the Senate and must go to vote to the House of Representatives. If approved with changes it will go back to the Senate and become official if voted in favor of. 

The bill was opposed by some senators who were worried about children and teenage consumption, but the bill does include that individuals must be over 18 to consume marijuana. 

The measure would allow an individual of legal age to possess up to 28 grams of cannabis and grow up to six plants at home. If there are two people who consume marijuana in the same residence, then they will be allowed to grow up to 8 plants in their home. 

With this new law, drug cartels behind much of the violence in Mexico could be stripped of their control over the marijuana market. 

The lower house is expected to vote on the measure before December 15.

This Cannabis Dispensary in Santa Ana Had a Dia De Los Muertos Event and Here’s Everything You Missed

no pos wow

This Cannabis Dispensary in Santa Ana Had a Dia De Los Muertos Event and Here’s Everything You Missed

Dispensaries, especially unlicensed shops, are not known to be the friendliest of places. For first timers, it can be quite intimidating to go into one and be presented with a plethora of products, where do you even begin? As you stand there trying to figure out what everything means, the pressure grows as fast as the line behind you and the budtender gives you simple responses that don’t even answer your inquiries. You probably ended up leaving with more questions than you went in with and picked the best sounding products, but don’t really know what you got or what to do with it.

Tropicanna is here to change that narrative.

The dispensary, which is located in Santa Ana, serves and delivers to the greater Orange County area, including Anaheim, Irvine, and all the way to San Clemente. You can spot the shop from blocks away, the bright turquoise and pink building is easily discernible among the surrounding storefronts. The inspiration for the decor and color scheme is tied back to the original Tropicana Club in Havana Cuba, mixed with Miami vibes and culture for a modern and Instagrammable experience.

“At Tropicanna, we want people to have fun and feel at home,” co-owner JP told mitú. “When people walk into the shop, we want them to forget about all the other bad experiences they’ve had. We’re here to help, whether it be with medicinal or recreational cannabis, we want everyone to feel comfortable enough to ask all the questions they have and leave our store confident with their choices.” 

Having been to various dispensaries, I can confidently attest to the fact that their customer service team is unparalleled. Seriously. At no point in time did I feel rushed, and when I talked to the reps it was like I was talking with a friend. The shop is well stocked in all types of products, and the customer service reps were able to help me figure out which ones were right for me based on the experience I wanted to have. I even ended up leaving with a couple of products for my mom (she needs her chocolatitos to help her go to sleep).

Not only is Tropicanna changing the customer experience game, they are also inviting the community to get involved and participate in the various events they host, the most recent of which was for Dia De Los Muertos.

“We would be nothing without our community,” continued JP, “so we wanted to let them know that we appreciate them and are proud to be a part of it. That was where the inspiration for the event came in. At the end of the day, at Tropicanna we want to stand out in the experience we provide but also community presence.”

The main event setup was in the parking lot, but there was plenty to see inside the shop. As soon as you walked in you were able to sign up for a giveaway, which was complete with products from the vendors stationed outside. Cempasuchil flowers and calaveras were everywhere, most of the staff was in full calavera makeup, and there was even an altar!


If you purchased any products from the companies that were sponsoring the event, you got some free treats from the vendors outside. 👀

Food was provided by @chef_flip_fantabulas

Chef Rudy, the founder of @cannabiscateredevents, has figured out how to take delicious food and elevate it. He’s at Tropicanna every Tuesday with a weekly rotating menu. This time he made carne asada esquites that were so good, just thinking about them is making me hungry. The meal was not infused, but Chef Rudy encourages customers to season and infuse their food at home with products you can purchase inside Tropicanna! Check out his IG for more info.

Nomad Cocktail Co.

I needed something to wash down my esquites, so I went over to @nomadcocktailco and got a mocktail. Maddi, the business owner and former bartender, works with products from @kan_ade_ and Cannabis Quenchers to create specialty drinks that are as delicious and potent as they are pretty. My favorites were the piña drink with the chamoy rim and the blueberry pomegranate, complete with a cempasuchil flower 😋 Check out @nomadcocktailco and @kan_ade_ for more!

La Familia

By far one of my favorite brands, La Familia is Los Angeles based and Latino owned and operated, which is rare in the cannabis industry. I first discovered them when they launched their infused chocolates, which come in flavors like Mazapan, Fresas con Crema, and Cajeta, just to name a few. This time Tania Noyola, the brand ambassador, introduced me to some of their newer products such as their Chocolate Abuelita cookies and their Churro Rice Krispie (both super yum), and their aguas frescas, which come in flavors such as Horchata, Mango, Fresa, and even Limón con Pepino! Rumor has it they even have some chile covered gummies dropping in the next few months. @lafamiliachocolate is definitely a brand you’re going to want to keep tabs on.

Wonderbrett

Wonderbrett is another Los Angeles local vendor and they brought with them artist @eternallovetribe, well known for collaborating with BJ The Chicago Kid and bringing his design to life. The design is now the packaging for one of Wonderbrett’s most popular strains, “Black Orchid,” which is “perfect for relieving stress, anxiety, insomnia, and pain.” It was really cool to watch @eternallovetribe’s art process as they created a custom piece for the event. Check out Wonderbrett’s website here.

Humboldt’s Finest Farms

What makes Humboldt’s Finest Farms different from all the other brands? For starters, they are a co-op of 3 farmers who are all about sustainability and giving back to the community. From the way they grow their plants to the biodegradable packaging, everything that Humboldt Farms does is with intention. Their goal is to produce the highest quality products in the most natural way. Click this link to check out their website.

Dreamt Products

Another minority owned business! Created by Latina scientist, Carolina Vazquez Mitchell, Dreamt Products began when the founder started suffering from insomnia. Dr. Vazquez Mitchell had been working with cannabis since she was 17 years old, and decided to take her experience and combine it with her education to find a natural solution to her problem. Today, Dreamt Products has tinctures and vapes designed to help you get the sleep you need. Click here to find out more!

If you still had room for dessert, Afters Ice Cream was there to satisfy your craving.

Naturally, I went with their mango sorbet and added tajin and chamoy. Not available infused, but still delicious 😉

If you missed the event, don’t fret! Tropicanna told mitú they’re planning on having at least one event every month. As far as what else we have to look forward to in November, they’re having major markdowns for Black Friday and will be having even more for delivery on Cyber Monday. Check out Tropicanna’s website for more info!

Tropicanna can be found at 1628 S. Grand Ave, Santa Ana CA 92705
