There is something communal in smoking ganja. Whether in a bar or at a house party, one of my favorite parts of any evening of drinking is to enter an inconspicuous alleyway and crowd that right head before re-entering, cracking jokes, coughing, and guffawing. To traverse is to pass around a joint. And red eyed.

While vape pens have only slightly ruined the circle of smokers, I expect a resurgence after half of the Gen Z cops are diagnosed with throat cancer. I’m not sure why I yelled at that cloud, but it could be that my head is constantly in the clouds, thus making me prone to distractions and bouts of paranoia.

Oh, now I remember why I mentioned sharing some trees with my friends—it’s not a symbolic holiday, but a symbolic holiday, and I thought that weed head equivalent of a perfect dinner party or round of golf. Sharing would be a good idea.

However, before I begin, I have been told that I need to issue a disclaimer to avoid any legal problems. I have no evidence that anyone on this list smokes (and there are a few jokes specifically that these people need a little THC in their lives). The names mentioned are purely speculation and based on my long history of being toast. Takes one to know one, doesn’t it?
