I'm 45 and I was the last of my group (back in 1975 or so) to start smoking with them. I used to sit in the "smoke circle", as it were, and they would pass the joint to me and I would just pass it on to the next person. I was still freaked out by those films they used to show us in school where people would take a couple of hits and start tripping big time! I remember that, when I finally did try it, it took me almost five or six times of actually smoking it before I felt high. When I finally did, I was sooo disappointed that I didn't see all those shapes and colors!!
But it wasn't long before I began to appreciate the affects of the herb. I smoked daily until I was 28 and, after having a rough acid trip, I quit everything to save my marriage. Didn't smoke again for several years until I started jamming in bands again when I was 35 or so. Been smoking at gigs ever since (and most practices too :smile
. Still don't smoke that much when not playing in the band but now that I've got my first grow in 25 years underway, I'm sure I'll be sampling my herb more regularly once the harvest rolls in!
