Weed and funerals

  1. I know this is a strange question, but it's something I oddly find myself wondering.

    In the unfortunate event somebody close to you passes.. Would you consider attending services while high or would you deem that disrespecting?

    Some friends of mine who smoke regularly think it would be wrong and some come back with something like "if I die and you're there you better be high haha". I personally don't have much stance on this yet. How about you?
  2. doing anything not high is disprespecting myself
  3. lol when i was 14, i went to a funeral for a friends mom and he had a fuck ton of cousins who would smokeout when they were in town

    totally went to it like an asshole with 14 gram bags and made money. lol\

    not to mention high.

  4. Thats not being an asshole.
    Its being an entrepreneur! :hello:
  5. That's something you should be sober for in my opinion, out of respect to the deceased and their family.
  6. blleehhh. A question some, maybe most of us has asked ourselves.

    I guess it depends. Before my grandfather passed away, he said he didn't want a long service, he didn't want us in suits, and he didn't want us to have a "funeral". He just wanted a quick service so that people could come pay their last respects, in clothes they would wear on a lazy Sunday, and have a meal afterwards with friends and family. So that's what we did.

    If the person who passed away enjoyed marijuana, then I guess it might be a tribute to their life if you smoked before/during/after. If the person was against it, then it would be disrespectful.

    You aren't there to please anyone. You're there to say good bye for the last time. Respect what that person believed in and lived for, even if you disagree with everything they stood by.
  7. lol hell yeah making money off of peoples depression
    i wasnt even a family friend i was strictly invited to chill with my boy

    Its a ritual for some that goes way back and isn't seen as just being high. It has been used in different situations for many years and can even be even a sign of respect, togetherness and peace.
    you don't even have to inhale if you don't want.
    Just accepting the pipe is the point.
    Lots of us choose to do it alone afterwards. Its a way of being alone with and personally saying goodbye to that person.
    It is what it is. A natural part of the circle of life just like us.
    As long as you aren't being rude or disrespectful to anybody in ANY way, I don't think it makes you a bad person though.
  9. I don't think there is anything wrong with it, for me that is. But I don't act like a fool when I'm high

    But personally, I wouldn't do it. I'd just rather be sober for something like that
  10. i say go to the actual funeral sober out of respect & burn afterwards as a tribute to the deceased
