Dropping The Blunt: Decoding the Meaning
To put it simply, if you drop the blunt, it means you’re either extremely clumsy or already pretty baked. However, if the blunt was rolled properly, it should be totally fine and shouldn’t be damaged when it hits the ground. Some old school stoners have a rule that if you drop the blunt, you get a punch in the arm. Apart from that, dropping the blunt doesn’t hold much significance.
Some people may claim that dropping the blunt refers to the person who provides the blunt wrap, i.e., “I don’t have any weed to contribute, but I can drop the blunt.” Although, this terminology is not widely used 5 WS.
Weed Smoking Etiquette: The Unspoken Code
For those new to smoking weed, there are a few etiquette tips to keep in mind. While stoners are generally laid-back people, there is a certain level of respect involved. Just as kings and queens have dinner etiquette and there are escalator protocols to follow, stoners have their own set of rules.
So, what are some basic stoner etiquette rules when smoking a blunt with others? Let’s take a look:
- If you don’t have weed to contribute to the mix, it’s expected that you at least purchase the blunt wrap itself.
- If you haven’t pitched any weed for the blunt, you have no right to complain about the quality, quantity, or your position in the rotation.
- “Rollers rights” is a significant stoner etiquette rule, implying that the person who rolled the blunt takes the first hit.
- Once the blunt is rolled, someone who contributed some pot can say “deuce,” securing the second spot in the rotation after the roller. The order is usually determined this way.
- If you call “deuce” before the blunt has been rolled, you automatically get the last place in the rotation.
- If you haven’t contributed any weed to the blunt, those who did will generally exclude you from the first few rotations. However, real stoners will eventually share some hits with you, just not typically during the initial rounds. Those who contributed always get priority.
- If a blunt is canoed (burning faster on one side), you have to “ring it” by using saliva to create a ring around the front. This helps slow down the faster-burning section, ensuring an even burn.
