Etiquette On Being Blunt: The Laws Of Conspicuous Consumption

Posted 01-05-2010 at 11:15 PM by Sativa Diva

What you put into your own body is up to you. But please be aware of the legal ramifications for others.
There's a common legal principle concerning possession of a controlled substance: Actual and Constructive. Actual possession means that the drug is in fact on your person(you're smoking it now); Constructive possession means that you know the drug is in your presence(you'll smoke it later).
Most important for reasons of etiquette is how these concepts affect those around you. For example, you invite some friends over to your house. Someone takes out a blunt and starts smoking. If you know what's going on (whether you're smoking or not), your're liable and are subject to arrest. If that same friend lights up in the bathroom and blows smoke out the window, you're fine as long as you don't know about it.
This hairsplitting legal concept dictates situational etiqutte. If you know that your friend doesn't care if you light up a fatty, puff away. On the other hand, if you're around people who don't like drugs, you can 1) Refrain from toking around them or 2) Find different friends. It is always uncool to put friends in compromising positions concerning illegal activity.
But there's a third option. If your friends don't really care whether or not you're stoned out of your head, but don't want to see it, do it outside their presence, then rejoin the party. No harm, No Foul.:D
