Why I’ll Never Buy Another Cheap Bong In My Life

Many people notice big changes in cannabis use as they grow into adulthood after having smoked regularly as a teenager. I regrettably started smoking at the young age of sixteen in high school. I went to a school where it was a pretty common habit shared by a rather large percentage of the student body, and even if I was aware of the developmental impact of any drug abuse at all on a young mind, I enjoyed many fun times smoking up at lunchtime before last period.

The biggest change for me, personally, that I have noticed has to be that I just can not deal with a crappy, cheap bong like I used to. Years ago, I would gladly hit any old bong tying around, no matter how cheap or filthy it was, no value of the material or craftsmanship. I would do this without coughing up a lung because I could somehow tank through gram-sized bowls like nothing in those days. Now, I can’t even handle a fifth of a gram without a properly made, high-quality bong to cool the smoke before I inhale it. Something about a cheap bong makes the smoke so harsh and taste so foul, and somehow, I never noticed this when I was young.

    I couldn’t tell you exactly why this shift in my attitude came about, but maybe it has something to do with the romanticization of cannabis when you’re young. Anything can become a competition in a high school environment, which certainly does not exclude marijuana. Especially for young guys, it’s not uncommon for smoking cannabis to turn into a pissing contest. Who can roll the biggest joint? Who can rip the biggest bowl? Who can smoke the biggest dab? By extension, maybe young people want to ‘impress’ each other somehow by being willing to do anything for the kush. Honestly, I have no clue why I subjected myself to so many ridiculously oversized bowls out of grimey, overused bongs.
