It’s no secret that weed is becoming a more acceptable social activity. Smoking up has become so common that a lot of people who go on dates usually prefer being high and doing activities.
That’s why we’ve assembled a team of millennial marijuana enthusiasts to share their best stoned date recommendations -
"Watching movies while you’re stoned is a ton of fun, but sometimes paying attention to the plot can be a bit difficult and that’s why art installations or museums are the next best thing. It starts a conversation and helps all the hallucinating, and probably some giggling, without trying to stay focused on a storyline. Plus, it adds just the right amount of sophistication to your date. Art is supposed to be interpretive, right? So being stoned is the perfect way to interpret it!" Namrata, 24, Writer.
"Mumbai has great (cheap) comedy shows almost every night of the week. You're already giggly, so go to a place where people won’t stare you down for laughing, or call you freaks. Most of these shows are in great local bars, breweries, and restaurants, so your cure for the munchies is right there. If you’re not the best conversationalist or you’re just too high, you don't have to worry about it. Talking is not allowed, and after the date, you can chat about the show. If it’s the first date, what your date laughs at gives you an idea of their personality anyway." Jai, 24, Child Psychologist.
"Grab some supplies, blaze up, and go for a hike! Sharing a joint and some good conversation is the perfect way to connect with the other person. Just make sure you pick a safe, well-travelled place. Because you don't want to find yourself high out of your mind trying to pass a joint to a tiger. And it's a great way to add to your high because of all the adrenaline, and it's also cool that you go hiking." Nikhil, 26, Accountant.
"Just go cafe-hopping. It's the best after you're stoned - you have the munchies, and all you care about is food, so go out and explore all the cafes you can. This way you can end up finding a new place that you like and if the date goes well - it can be "your place." You can also pick one type of food like burgers for example, and then look for the best burger in the area! It's fun, it's convenient and you get to talk a lot!" Neha, 25, Data Analyst.
"Get high, get dressed, and go to a concert! There's nothing better than jamming to your favourite music - or just good music - when you're high. It's fun, it's casual and you'll probably meet a few other stoned people and makes some new friends. It's a little difficult to find a concert here but even a small gig at pubs or bars works really well." Anushka, 28, Physiotherapist.
"Go to a place that has karaoke! Karaoke, when you're drunk, is great, but it's even better when you're high. You don't have a care to give and you sing either on point or really off-key which is usually what makes you vulnerable. So it's easy to open up to each other after you've probably embarrassed yourselves in front of a whole lot of people." Aryamann, 29, Social Media Manager.
