People Told Us the Highest They've Ever Been in Six Words

“Thought I was in SpongeBob’s house.”

You don’t really know how insane being out-of-your-mind high can feel until you’ve experienced it yourself. And given one in eight Americans use marijuana, many likely have. Not every toke is going to rattle your brain, of course. But depending on how much you indulge (raise your hand if you’ve accidentally eaten half a pan of pot brownies) or if you’re smoking a particularly potent strain, you could be in for a wild ride. We asked lots of friends and coworkers, newbie puffers and old-timer huffers alike, to describe the highest they've ever been in six words. Here’s what they said.
