15 People On How Their First High Felt

Photographed by Rachel Cabitt.
They say you never forget your first time, though in the case of your first high it'd be perfectly understandable if you did. Maybe you had a giggling fit. Maybe you got really absorbed in petting the carpet. Maybe you just kicked back and watched Samsara. Whatever you were doing the first time you got stoned, you probably look back on that time and laugh (or face palm, depending on how into the carpet you were).
In honor of 4/20, we asked the R29 community to share memories of their first high. Luckily, more than a few readers sent in toking tales with impressive details. With stories of not knowing how to light a bowl, lighting up a massive blunt, and plain old smoking a joint in the suburbs, they did not disappoint.
Read on for some of the funniest stories we received — then share your own in the comments.
(Refinery29 in no way encourages illegal activity and would like to remind its readers that marijuana usage continues to be an offense under Federal Law, regardless of state marijuana laws.)
