who decided to call it getting high and why?
Don't really know.
But I read in this book that said in like the 1600s and stuff Witches used to take drugs, and think they were flying, then admit to flying on broom sticks
and thought they were actually high in the sky
or maybe that's just a bunch of bullshit I read
at least you certainly don't feel low when you're high
When you're high, you feel better than you usually do.
It's a simple enough concept
what if when youre sober you're actually high? and when you get high thats normal, thats what you're supposed to feel like?
makes ya think doesnt it?
well you're not low are you?
Hey bro, wanna go get sober?
maybe they call it high because marijuana heightens your senses
you feel like you are above anything
that's my piece
I couldn't really define the root of the expression
I actually don't like call it getting 'high'. It just doesn't sound right you know? I prefer stoned, cause when you're stoned you feel like a god damned stone. You don't want to move at all cause life feels so good where you are.
I think my reply would of been more creative if I was stoned aha. xD
Why is a chair called a chair? Why is Marijuana called Marijuana? Why is a pipe a pipe?
Everything needs a name, this name suited its definition so it was chosen, just like any other word. Asking what single person created a word, or a slang termm is generally a waste of time.
They call it high because it takes you to different places
almost everything has there name for a reason whether it be from the latin root or just created by americans usually everything has a reason of why its called that specific name
Stop getting high behind there!
haha i was reading about that, apperently it was a mixture of powerful shit including the deadly night shade.
hmm,when im high i feel like i am flying,maybe thats where it came from
Maybe someone was stoned one day, called it being high then it catched on?
(sometimes?) when you're "high", you feel like youre above everything.
like...did you ever experience that?
youre sort of out of your body looking down on everything including yourself
anyway, youre in the clouds.
everything is better.
its like heaven!
youre high in the sky
It may have latin origins, made up of words that were just made by man. Everything is just given a name, whether or not it comes from names that has been given its name.
