The best snack to eat in my opinion is watermelon Sour Patch! My favorite music to listen to is my own or like Rihanna & Chief Keef."

"Honestly, weed keeps me calm. I like smoking and listening to music and thinking. I came up with a lot of ideas smoking weed lol. Gotta be gas tough — all I smoke now is biscotti, wedding cake, and cookie. They’re my top right now! I don’t really watch a lot of TV like that but when I do, I like to watch movies that excite me like Belly, Blow, Wold of Wall Street type shit. For snacks, some gummy bears or some nutty butters, them bitches FYE! See that’s the shit I like about weed, I can eat good, and laugh good. When I’m rapping, it just zone me out. It’s like whatever you doing, you gon do it better if you’re high. Naw fr."

Coma Cinema

"I love listening to Eberhard Weber’s “no motion picture” and just smoking blunts until the songs over, it’s like 18 minutes long or something like that. I get high and record music that I’m always really hyped on until I hear it back later lol. Other than that I go hang out at the Kava bar around here or something like that and just absorb the people around. I think everyone there is usually high so I don’t feel weird like I’m on a different trip than everyone else like if I go to the grocery store stoned or something like that"


"This pretty much sums it up"

"Damn. honestly I’m such a lightweight, so whenever I smoke I just sit there and think about how high I am then I just put on my headphones and listen to whatever music comes on shuffle haha. That 70’s Show is my shit when I’m faded and if I’m not eating Dino’s, I'm prolly grubbin on McDonalds. Drawing and recording music is pretty dope too when I get a creative rush."

"I love to zone out with my eyes closed, listen to music, and always notice nuances I never have before. Sour straws are the ultimate stoned snack! As far as tv goes I like watching anime. One in particular, called Mushishi is really relaxing and beautiful. Once I’m done with my work for the day, smoking is a nice way to clear my mind and allow myself to enjoy the finer things in life without the stressing about the stuff my mind tends to wander to."

Kyle O’Quin of Portugal. The Man

Without sounding cliché, playing piano is my favorite thing to do while smoking. Helps me put the blinders on and just get lost for hours. I really like smoking weed while i drink coffee in the morning. I’m from Seattle and we call the combo of good espresso and good weed a “Seattle speedball”. I usually wake up in the morning, make a chemex, smoke weed and read a book for a bit before starting my day. As it turns out, it’s also perfect for ending a day. Usually smoke some weed, watch some John Oliver or Curb Your Enthusiasm and that’s that.
