As I write this I am a 50 year outdated guy who has been a proper smoker for many decades.
I love getting high, & still do it every day.
Once upon a time I was a noobie, an experienced youngster who was legitimately curious about what it felt like to get stoned, my parents told myself and others that marijuana would turn myself and others into a junkie, but the R-rated comedies I watched on cable TV made it seem like a blast. I had to find out for myself, & 1 night my neighbor Andy offered to show myself and others the ropes. I thought he was being a kind, experienced marijuana guru, but he was absolutely just messing with me. Instead of introducing myself and others gently to marijuana he broke out his biggest bong & got myself and others far too stoned, and a person’s first time smoking cannabis should be gradual, a few tokes at the time to see what it feels like. Andy was trying to get myself and others zonked, & kept giving myself and others big bong tokes of OG Kush until I passed out on the floor; Years later when it was my turn to help a cannabis rookie experience their first high, I remembered what Andy did to me, & went in the opposite direction. I rolled up a “pinner” which is the thinnest possible cannabis cigarette, & let my young neighbor work through it gently. Andy thought it was funny to deliver myself and others too much marijuana & watched myself and others get absurd. I thought it was more respectful to show my neighbor how amazing cannabis can be by taking it simple.
