SHOULD YOU VAPE INDOORS? - THOUGHTS?
So weed’s legal now in most of the states that anyone would want to go to (no offense). You can buy it, smoke it, or rub it on your belly. And that’s just wonderful. But an interesting thing that happened at roughly the same time was the abrupt cultural turn on nicotine based vaping. For a terribly brief moment, hipsters and recently quit smokers were living the 1950’s lifestyle, blowing clouds and getting their fix wherever and whenever they wanted. People with complicated rigs were vaping in restaurants, at bars, and in line at the bank.
And then that literally blew up in their stupid mustachioed faces. Which is sad (poor hipsters). But the other thing people got pissed about was that kids, who had been responding well to the anti-smoking movement in this country were taking up vaping faster than you can say, “take that damn Tide-Pod out of your mouth.” And the establishment said no.
Vaping indoors became as bad as lighting up a cigarette in church, and the vapers were forced outside with the 7 people still smoking cigarettes.
But the consequences didn’t stop there. Those other poor folks who had been sneaking, a cheeky puff of their favorite skunk pen immediately lost their cover. No longer could you pretend you were just vaping some Lucky Charms nicotine… And just as it became so damn easy to buy a weed pen! Like the joint smoking ancestors of our tribe, who blew a puff up at a concert like any other cigarette smoker at a Madonna concert, we lost our cover.
Here’s the thing. Weed vape pens smell like an angels heavenly fart, and the misty loveliness is gone before you can blink… but the aroma passes over a crowd like a fog machine and everyone knows what it is.
So is it cool to take a puff at an indoor venue?
Obviously, if you’re gonna ghost it, then I’m not talking to you. But for the rest of you out there, do you chance it? If you’re at a comedy show in Vegas, will you take a puff? And if you do, are you doing anything wrong?
If it’s legal in your state and it’s not smoke based, should you be allowed to vape wherever you are?
Is it hurting anyone?
Whenever the cool mist of a vape pen, washes across me at a show, I’m not mad, I’m jealous.
But should the haters win this one too? Weed is not addictive and it’s not illegal, and it’s not a gateway drug. It’s a treat and an enhancer.
You tell me.
Do you take it outside? Or do you cough into your shirt when you bit off more than you could ghost?
