Thats a very good idea , Im going to the Y sometime this week to try that shlt out. Vc are you a teacher? A DARE teacher? well yes it does all those things to you but also makes me very parinoid in public siuations. I mean I love lightin a bowl up every night but going out to eat or something or driving Im very paranoid. But yes that does sound like a idea.......And then maybe a sandwitch

isn't DARE anti drugs?



im just saying I like lighting up a joint every now and then, but I would definitely not recommend doing so and then trying to play basketball. you'll break something and you probably won't care.\ unless you are chronic like Skywalker mentioned.

Playing streetball, smoking definitely helps me ive never played at a high level so i dont know how itd be with the pressure. it gets you loose and your less aprehensive and my shot is considerably more accurate.

I'm also curious what **** VC was smoking... ;) Seriously though, want to know what weed feels like? Watch the beginning of the movie Half Baked when Dave is recalling the first time he ever smoked weed. Look at how the characters move, how they look kind of gray, the distorted angles, etc. The part inside the store when they're moving in slow motion and everyone else around them is walking by at normal speed. That is EXACTLY how it feels.

Watch it at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ASq4YR-_D4

i miss those days, when smoking would have that effect on me, i think i need to quit for a few months to lessen my tolerance. or just come across some afghani kush

It'll improve ur game short term, u'll be on the ball and very energetic for the 1st 10-20 mins or so, then u'll most likely "burn out".

Kills stamina

reduces thinking,(mental game).

just go out with your boys and smoke a joint. if it's your first time, make sure one of your friends have done it for a while, because chances are you, you may get lost wherever you walk to.

Honestly, I think weed and basketball are a great combination. Basketball requires a lot of creativity. You'll try **** and see angles you might normally miss if you're sober. Granted, you might **** up a lot, but if you're just balling with some friends, it's a great time all around.

meh. my very first time in high school, my friends just made me play games. each time I take a hit, I would keep it in my lungs for as long as possible then exhale.

for the first four hits, I kept saying I don't feel anything. nothing's up.

after the fifth one, still nothing. then my friend took his arms, formed a cup and put it over my head, then once he took it off. WHOOOOAAAAAAAA.




and when we took a walk, I got lost somewhere in the woods. thank god they found me.

I don't smoke weed cause I've seen so many people **** their lives because of some stupid drug. I don't see the point in needing a drug to be happy.
