6 hits smoked Cannabis (plant material)


It was my first year in high school, I had been hanging out with some people who have been smoking pot for the past 2 years. I never said to myself 'I won't ever try drugs, they are bad.' I was always willing to try it just to see what it was like.

So, one day I bought a joint from one of my friends. It was creeper weed, which I didn't know anything about but I knew the guy I was buying from.

It was Thanksgiving night and I was bummed because I hadn't gotten to smoke the day before, when I was supposed to. I was talking to my brother and he explained to me how to make a pipe out of foil (bad to smoke out of, I know), and how to inhale and all that essential stuff.

I went outside and took about 4 or 5 hits, some of them I couldn't hold in. I went back inside but then went back out again because I didn't want to not get high. I had a couple more hits and then decided to go in.

I remember not wanting to breathe out of my mouth because I could taste the smoke in my mouth and I was afraid that I would smell up my room. I sat down at my desk and put on some music waiting for something to happen. All of a sudden I lifted up my hand and it was just by far the coolest thing I had ever seen. I remember saying out loud 'Whoa, my hand looks sooo great!' And I just sat there for a while moving my head around and my arms, I could feel everything, it was all heightened. Then I remeber trying to get up, I seriously didn't think I was going to be able to. So I just sat there at my desk. It felt like I was in a dream and that every time I moved I woke up, everything looked like I was seeing it for the first time. And now I understood why everyone was so hyped up about this drug. Everything was familiar but then again it had also changed. I decided to get ready for bed, I just sat in bed and stared at my mirror and run my hands up and down my blankets, enjoying everything that was happening, everything that I was observing and touching.
