edit: Apparently there is lots of evidence to support that the so called "contact high" from a concert is 100% psychological, and there's nothing to support that it's real. It would make sense, as the active ingredients seem to absorb into the person who is smoking in the first place.

That's BS. I went to Paul McCartney's Driving Rain concert (trippiest concert EVER, btw), and there was a guy that kept blowing pot smoke in my face. Was baked out of my skull for the rest of the show. And I went with my parents, so that was interesting.

But if you're not around anyone actively blowing smoke at you, I really don't think it will be a problem.

Anyone who doesn't believe in "contact highs" has never spent time with Shaggy and Scooby in the Mystery Machine...

My problem wasn't that I spent too much time in the mystery machine, it was the fact that I liked it too much.

That's why I specified at a concert. That's a lot more open air than in the van. :) like I said, I'm not sure if they're real or not.

At a concert you're probably ok. In a smaller, more confined space, contact highs certainly do exist.

One thing I found interesting when I saw Roger Waters twice last month. The better (more expensive) your seats are, the better the quality of the stuff getting smoked around you.

Anybody ever see Santana in concert? I have lucked into 2 tickets for an upcoming show, but don't really know if I wanna go or not.



Was it the Toledo Zoo show? I really wanted to go to that, but couldn't justify the expense of the tickets on top of the couple of unpaid hours I'd have to take off from work in order to go.

There's no evidence at all that second hand pot smoke can get you high. As for those of you who "got high" in such circumstances, never underestimate the power of placebo. :-)

I've never gotten high from being at an outdoor concert with a general haze of smoke around. I don't think...I've usually been quite a few beers into a case though, so I could've been high for all I know. Hehehe...

So the general consensus of society is you can't get high from second-hand pot smoke, but you can get lung cancer from second-hand cigarette smoke. The wheels on the bus goes round and round.

You're comparing two completely different things - THC and carcinogens.

From what I understand, there aren't enough cannabinoids in second-hand pot smoke to have an effect on you. Carcinogens exist in higher concentrations, and therefore have a measurable impact.

And it's not the "consensus of society". I'm pretty sure there's science involved in reaching those conclusions.

I'm so frakking jealous that you saw Roger Waters once, let alone twice. Twice almost makes me not like you. ;)

And your above quote cracked me up, although I have NO idea what you're talking about...*insert mischievous grin here*

And I have no idea how I screwed up the quotes, but I am SO not tech savvy, so I hope this post isn't too irritating.

Actually, I always found him rather irksome...almost as irksome as people I've met who asked if I was related to him.

I never saw Office Space, but I had to look up that quote.

There's also a radio host, apparently disliked by some, named Mike Gallagher.

And I was also the name of the character played by Paul Newman in Absence Of Malice. But HE got to sleep with Sally Field, who I always thought was cute.

Waaayyyyyy Off Topic.....
