    I've been to class once while stoned, and I won't do it again. It was pretty much just a huge buzzkill, and I had a lot of trouble focusing on work. I've found I like to save smoking for weekends and times when I've got no commitments.

    I'm sure it's different with everyone, especially daily smokers who are more used to functioning normally high

    I function normally if not better when I am high. I also attend a 4 year university and am enrolled in 12 units. While i do not smoke before every class i do sometimes smoke before class. I find it a different experience to be high in class than being sober. I'm not sure if it makes me concentrate more but i generally find the material more interesting when i'm high so therefore causing me to pay attention. But it is different for all people.

    I feel like I learn ALOT more when I go to class like that. It makes it easier to understand what the teacher is trying to teach. But sometimes I get paranoid a little. I sometimes think the teacher is going to call on me and I will sound like a retard. I haven't done it this semester because of choice, even though I should because of how boring my classes are. But my paranoia is at an all-time high when I do this, which I hate.

    It wouldn't work for me. Sitting in class, listening to a lecture is a very linear activity. When I'm high, my mind goes in twenty different directions at the same time. Sorting out the lecture from the other 19 things would be nearly impossible.

    Maby earlyer in the day if it were night classes, but right before taking a class ? No way ! I'd be looking to get the hell out of there. ... Come on everyone ! Save your weed for stuff like listening to music, looking at artwork, psychedelic pictures and tripping posters.

    I got to school only about 2.5 hours a day and I cant remember the last time I went to school and wasn't high. It helps me concentrate a lot, when I smoke I tend to concentrated more on things, when sober my mind is in a million different places at once and I find it hard to stay on task

    Ha I edited that out because I knew someone would've asked. But I'll tell it anyways.

    It really came down to me being paranoid out of my mind. But before I got to class I smoked a lot more than I should have. I practically almost forgot that I had class. I arrived late thinking I only had to turn in a paper (which was our final), and then I'd be gone. But I get to class around 15 minutes too late have a packed class all stare at me as I walk in, which signaled the paranoia. And then the teacher made some smirk to me that I couldn't comprehend, and I just shrugged it off. But why everyone was still there was because the teacher wanted to play a few songs for us. It sounds awesome as I tell the story now, but this somehow increased my paranoia as well. Before he played his songs he would go into these elaborate stories of how he played these songs over in Europe and everyone in the bar got up and started dancing, and also how he thought of these songs, etc. But anyways, he played the songs and I sat quietly and listened while I was twitching out of my mind sitting the front row. When he was done I just wanted to get the heck outta there and be gone. As soon as he was done he called us by alphabetical order by last name to turn our papers in. When he did this, the people that came up started hugging him and telling him and telling their goodbyes in front of the class. While I had time to sit there, I kept thinking that I am going to make a fool outta myself and do something stupid which will embarass me, and that got me REALLY paranoid and somehow nervous. But I finally got called and turned my paper in and didn't say a word. It was just so awkward, and I didn't say anything so I could save face and be gone. He just kinda patted me on the back and I forgot what I said but it was probly something like "alright, see ya", while I tried not to look into his eyes because they were bloodshot red. The worst part about it is this teacher is a family friend, and I kept thinking he knew I was stoned the whole time. But as soon as I walked out of that class I vowed to myself that I would never go to class high again.

    OMG ! What are people going to say next ? Dropping @cid helped me focus and I got an A+ on my final exam so I'm going to do it before every class.

    I'll do essays and things like that stoned, but don't like going to class stoned. I can't learn stoned too too well, but I can recall and apply information quite well.

    Excuse me, but who the hell are you to tell anyone else what they should or shouldn't be doing with their herb? It's an individual choice that doesn't work for some but works for others.

    Personally, I go to class high sometimes and others not. It doesn't have much of an effect on my retention of information or my ability to participate in class. Honestly, when I toke before class, it's more to make the 20-30 minute walk across campus more enjoyable. I wouldn't do it if it had negative effects on my grades, but since it doesn't, I don't see why anyone would feel the need to tell me I should be doing otherwise. I don't tell other people that they should go to class high, and they shouldn't be telling me I shouldn't.

    I did a whole lot last year, but that was my freshman year, and freshman classes are huge. I could just sit in the back row and it would be fine. But now i'm pretty far into my major sequence (psychology), and the classes aren't as big so its allot harder to blend in.

    Personally everything you just said bores the shit out of me... Lucky for you, it's YOUR opinion, not mine. Perhaps you can give people the same respect.

    Personally, being high in class REALLY helps me learn and shit. I kinda found this out on accident. I was taking an Astronomy class and we were gonna watch a video about space n shit, so a buddy and I decided to get SUPER high before, because space + high = pretty fucking cool. We watched the awesome vid, but then after, the teacher gave us a QUIZ. We almost freaked but managed to keep our cool and took the quiz. Afterwards we were surprised at how easy the quiz seemed, but we assumed it was because we were high, and probably failed it. The next day we went to class sober and we had gotten A's on the quiz! We then frequently went to classes high and by the end of the first 4 weeks I still had A's in ALL* of my classes. However, before we could finish the quarter, the school found a blog we were writing and kicked us out for the rest of the quarter :'(

    *note: I am NOT an A student, I never have been. My overall GPA is like 2.6 and this is NOT under the influence of weed. I only really started smoking last quarter.

    I know this isn't the case with everyone, but I sure am glad I can do it! Haha!
