How to know when someone is on drugs

We all know music scene is crawling with druggies. But how do you know when someone is on drugs? Is the music really this that good? Is this person always this friendly or is it the drugs that are actually talking to you. Hopefully this article can help you pick up on some subtle and more obvious signs of what drugs people are on. How they are feeling when they are on drugs and how it may effect you. Also the cliche ‘signs someone is high on Marijuana’.


With Marijuana legal and becoming in some parts on the world. Amsterdam, parts of the USA, and CANADA by the end of this summer. It’s highly likely you have experience talking to someone who is high on weed unless you have been living in a cat cafe in Japan.

Signs someone is high on Marijuana

1. Bloodshot eye’s – cough cough…oh its just allergies. Bullsh!t! Your high mother fuck$%r. No but seriously, bloodshot eyes is a typical giveaway some is high on weed. There is only so much clear eyes can help out those saggy eyelid’s.

2. They smell – That’s right! They smell like weed. Sound obvious, but trying to hide the smell is very difficult so they may try to sugar coat themselves in a Willy Wonka factory river of cologne. It’s these signs someone is high on Marijuana.

3. Word structure – ‘Bicking the flean’, instead of ‘Flicking the bean’. Yes, people rearrange words and create new ones quite often when ‘high’ on weed. A typical instance is when the swap the front letter of a word with the front letter of another word within the same sentence. Just like the example. This sign is not so obvious, but can definitely happen.

4. Overthinking a situation – Marijuana is common to have the side effect of making someone paranoid. Which kinda goes hand in hand with overthinking a situation. Typical pothead’s, stoner’s or cannibus users whatever you wanna call them. Tend to overthink a situation.


How people high on Marijuana may effect you.

1. When they are high ‘using the drug’. They are relaxed and chill. However someone that uses frequently can have mood swings and tend be grumpy and touchy for sure. In general though, they are easy going and safe to be around.

2. Can I be safe with them driving me? For a first time pot smoker, they wouldn’t be use to the effects of marijuana and would likely be quite dangerous to jump in the car with. They could just burst out into a laughing fit and then ‘BOOM’ pancake windscreen face. On the other hand, if the person is an everyday ‘user’ they should be pretty confident in their ‘motor abilities’ and may even be a better driver than the typical stressed out road rage feminist. Though we definitely don’t recommend either.
