15 Guidelines For A Smoker To Live By

By Edit Posted in Culture

As with all things in life, there are universal courtesies that people expect each other to do. The same goes with the etiquette of smoking weed/participating in the cypher. Here you’ll find 15 definitive rules that make up a gentlemanly smoker–aka Good Guy Greg (you do know that he’s smoking in those meme photos, right?)

Number 1: When smoking a joint or blunt, the person who rolls the joint (no matter whose weed it is) gets to spark up the joint and get first hit.

Number 2: If someone rolls a nice joint, it’s good to give the person a compliment on their rolling skills.

Number 3: If someone who’s smoked asks for a sip of your soda, you must give him some.

Number 4: If you ask for a sip, don’t take a large gulp.

Number 5: Never put your whole mouth on the blunt or joint. It gets wet and disgusting.

Number 6: If you are smoking a piece, always clear the chamber.


Number 8: Don’t pocket someones lighter. It will inevitably happen, but don’t purposely snake another lighter.

Number 9: If someone smokes you up, you must smoke them up at a future time.

Number 10: It is not cool to criticize other people’s weed in front of them.

Number 11:  Thou shalt not turn down a smoke. Ever!

Number 12: Always pass the joint or the piece to the left. Musical Youth’s immortal lyric goes, “Pass the dutchie on the left-hand side”.

Number 13: Never pass someone a spliff (which mixes weed and tobacco) without first letting them know that there is tobacco in it.

Number 14: Don’t spill bong water. It’s just gross.

Number 15: Puff. Puff. Pass. ‘Nuff said!
