put it in the air: family ; friend ; flow.


Everyone who smokes knows that when there's diff. people in a cyph the dynamic changes. There's some shit that you just don't even feel comfortable enough doing when you're sharing the L with certain people because you just feel like they won't get it or it will just be too random. So lets think of this in terms of the possibilities of people who'd be in the cyph.



FRIENDS:
Smoking with friends to me is the stingiest situation because, unless you know you'll be smoking again and they can pay, no one wants to get cheated when they buy the bag. And then, if it's just you and one other friend, there's always that dilemma of "Who's gonna pay for the dutch?"

The ideal situation is that both of you throw down and one of you just happens to have a dutch.

However, in the circumstance that there's more than 2 people on a bag it gets really tricky because nobody's trying to throw down on a bag when they don't even think they're gonna get high off of it.

Then there's the 3puff-pass situation. As far as I'm concerned 2 pulls at a time is a cop out so I do 3, and I think most people do too nowadays. But then you have that one cheifing muhfucka in the cyph that thinks 6 pulls is an appropriate amount. FALSEEEE! Then everybody is giving this nigga the side eye because we're wondering when he's gonna realize that his clock ran out and time is fuckin up! It's common weedhead courtesy to not exceed 3 pulls!

Then the roach/doobie situation is where it gets taken to a whole 'nother level. I'm good for dropping out of the cyph when I know that by the time the L gets back to me it's not gonna do anything but burn my lips (and even though I do smoke I don't want people to see burns on my lips and nails, that's disgusting and obnoxious). But there's always that person who feels like they have to finish the L until it's unsmokeable to others and then ask "Yall still hittin this?" and it's usually the person who threw down the least $$. >=[ THIS BUGS ME TO THE MAXIMUM! That's another side eye situation.

Overall I feel like smoking with freinds is the most hostile because nobody wants to get cheated out of their 5, real talk. Cheated by either not getting high or just feeling like people took advantage of the situation.

But on the up-side, friends are the best to smoke with because someone ALWAYS has jokes and if it's a regular cyph of people then there's always the recurring jokes or shit that was funny the last time that someone rememebered. At the end of the cyph, after all is said and done you have a moment to yourself where you're like "These are my niggas!"


FAMILY:
Everybody doesn't smoke with their family, so I know some of yall may not be able to relate. But I've smoked with a few of my cousins and my youngest aunt. This is when everything is so comfortable because that's blood so it's all gravy.

Normally you don't have to worry about who's gonna pay because someone happened to have a bag or you're all putting whatever you have together to just cop some shit.

Everything with the fam is super mellow too. It's just like fuck everything! I'm with my family and nobody can touch me LOL! Well at least that's how I feel.

The only downside is that sometimes it's just like the jokes aren't the same. I mean, you COULD talk about how your grandma forgot that today is Friday and not Sunday so she put all her church clothes on and went to church at 7am but it's really not THAT funny. That's when you wish that one of your friends was there to do the stupid shit that they always do and then you chuckle to yourself about your dumbass friends.

FLOW: - from a female P.O.V.
Ok smoking with a "flow" (boo/person you're talking to) is WAYYY different. First of all for us females, the dude probably bought it or (in a special case) sells it so you don't have to throw ANYTHING down. This is a SUPER PLUS!

Normally he'll want to roll too, which is very typical. Niggas LOVE to roll I guess thinking that shit is gonna impress us. Like a good roll is a mating ritual or something. *shrugs* IDC I just wanna get it over with.

In this case it's just the 2 of you so there's no rush or pressure about passing. As far as I'm concerned with just 2 ppl on an L we should both get high no matter who chiefs.

Then, your flow will usually try to ask you hella questions to feel you out and shit. Idk I like smoking with them though because you get to see how their real personality is when they're not trying to be anything else. They can just let loose.

The only bad part about smoking with a flow is that even though it might get you a little more open, you may not have any real good inside jokes to bring up or you might be a lil self-concious about what you do. Whatever though, it's a good way to get to know another aspect of that person's personality.

Over and out.
