Great point. I know it'll happen, but when it's the only thing they want to do, I'm out.
What if they pause long enough to smoke and pass it, then jump back in?
for me, it is just being in an environment where the area fills up with the smoke. I don't want to smell like it, or have it in my body.
I also don't like "communicating" with people in altered states. It is like being around middle schoolers, and I am around them all day at my job. I prefer some lucid, adult interaction in my down time.
if it is outside, it doesn't bother me as much, but most of the circles I have been in that become "stoned fests" tend to end up being chaotic noise, and I don't vibe on that.
