Dating can be so awkward. Nothing like a new romance to increase the weight of that emotional baggage. Like most of the people I know, I deal with it by getting as baked as possible. However, this can backfire and when it does, the results can be catastrophic. If you choose to get stoned before a date, beware… Don’t end up like these people.

Puff Puff Pass???
Back in the day, I went to a movie with this girl and we went to smoke a joint before it started. I was in high school so it was the dime bag days. We had the one joint and unless it was a random street score, that was all we were going to get.
I light it up and pass it. Then, she passes it back. I go to inhale but I didn’t really grip the joint. I sucked the whole lit thing into my mouth and the cherry burned the shit out of bottom lip. I coughed/spattered out the joint and it hit the pavement. Covered in spit, on the ground, it was obviously done. Plus, neither of us had a pipe anyways. She only got one toke and was so mad because we didn’t have anymore. I tried to make out with her during the movie but she said no because of the burn on my lip.
Guy passing out on a date from a dab
My ex and I had just broken up and I didn’t take long to start up a Tinder account. Wanting a guy that smokes weed, I made sure that my account said I was 420 friendly. I hit it off right away with this one guy who told me that he smokes a half ounce everyday. So, for our first date, I met him at a cannabis lounge. He seemed like a nice guy but maybe a little bit overconfident. I was a little surprised when I had to explain what a dab was to him.
So, I give him a small dab (I swear it was small!). He didnt cough a lot but I could tell that it hit him hard. He couldn’t keep up with the conversation and kept staring off into space. When I went to the bathroom and came back, he had fallen asleep at the Dab Bar. They were waking him up to kick him out. I greened him out with one dab.
This never usually happens…
I went on a first date with a guy that acted like all he did was smoke weed. Then we light up a joint, one toke and he starts coughing. I mean coughing! His whole face went bright red and his eyes popped out of his head, I swear. In between gasps, he started saying, “this never usually happens, this never usually happens.” I couldn’t get it out of my head. It set our date off on the wrong track and we never went out again, but he did call me. It became a thing with me and my friends. When one of us starts to cough, we say this never usually happens. Even my dad does it now.
