  • T. Kid's Bad Luck Charm

    Maintaining a high school weed habit was a hassle exemplified by run-ins with the police. For years, the cops never arrested us—they were chasing us for fun—but this merry game of cat and mouse turned dark one summer when police found a dime bag in my...

  • The Best Blazing Album Ever

    When I smoke, things that are less interesting become more interesting, and things that are already interesting become totally awesome. For this reason, it's probably not a coincidence that all of my favorite albums are ones I began listening to soon...

  • Getting High With a Teenager Who Shouldn't Smoke Weed

    During sophomore year of high school, my best friend's little brother was on lockdown because he was suspended for blazing at school. My best friend wanted me to help her brother stay sober, but when her brother offered to smoke me out, I couldn't...

  • T. Kid's Amazing Bongs

    One perk of writing this column is getting free stuff from time to time. The best free items were the bongs that arrived in the mail a few weeks ago. As I placed my gorgeous new pipes on my shelf, I remembered some of the glass that came and went over...

  • Bol the Acid Tripper

    The first time Bold took acid, he had a bad trip. But by junior year of college, Bol was spending time with a group whose parties could best be described as hippy raves. Over the next few months, Bol underwent a transformation that left him in...

  • The Great Weed Cookie War of 2013

    My drug dealer's delivery service guy made the best weed cookies. When he left to start his own delivery service, we followed him, which caused our old dealer to offer us discounted weed cookies and start a bidding war. You heard that right: My crew...

  • A Muslim's Adventures in Pork

    Although my family was never terribly religious, I was brought up Muslim enough to not eat pork. Several years ago, I broke with this tradition. I was doing boring freelance writing and wanted to create a personal project that would be both interesting...

  • Shoob the Weed Snatcher

    Asking a stranger for a hit usually leads not only to stonedness but also to conversation and new acquaintances. I'm the sort that shares weed without a caveat. That's why it's especially unsettling when one friend accuses another of being a sneak.

  • Jummy's Infinite Stash

    In retrospect, my mom was probably right about Jummy being a bad influence. One summer, he always had weed. I had no clue where it came from, but Jummy said I could continue smoking it without smoking him out in return if I never asked him where he got...

  • The Panickers

    You can always tell who can't hang from the way they react to someone offering them weed. They get that “I’m not falling for that again” look in their eyes and put their hand up. I always have to ask them why. These are the responses I usually get...

  • Weinergates in Waiting: Will My Sexts Come Back to Haunt Me Too?

    As Weinergate 2.0 has played out in recent weeks, it has occurred to me that many of us who now sext with wanton abandon may end up in, or vying for, positions of power. Might I also be facing a full-blown media scandal?

  • Visiting the Motherland

    Before the rise of the xenophobic pseudo-patriotism that's responsible for our decaying reputation abroad, there was a time when the American experience involved spending your earlier years in another country and then coming over to the US in a huddled...
