5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Shop While Stoned

Weed is great, but it’s not the best companion for high-stress situations.

Marijuana is popular for a reason. Aside from it’ medicinal value, it’s been a treasured source of excitement for millions of people, primarily because it improves activities that would otherwise be average. Watching a comedy, eating a large meal or completing an intense workout can feel completely different when you’re high. But the reverse is also true. Being high transforms something simple into a highly stressful activity. Take shopping for instance.

Now that Thanksgiving is around the corner and you’ll hopefully get a much needed super long weekend, it can be tempting to light up the minute you’re off work. Sure, you could do that, but it also helps to remind yourself that some activities, like cooking, grocery shopping and Black Friday, are also on the radar.

Here are 5 reasons why shopping while high might not be your brightest idea.

Getting high will give you the munchies, and a grocery store full of junk food is not the place you want to be with when you get the munchies. Your parents might send you out for carrots and you’ll most likely return with everything but carrots. Try to keep the weed to a minimum dosage on these instances, especially since these stores tend to be packed during Thanksgiving week.

Crowded stores can feel crazier

If you’re shopping on Black Friday, you might need to be on top of all of your senses, at least when purchasing the important stuff. Smoking weed before, especially copious amounts, might make you rethink your priorities and decide that you don’t really need that present your dad has been asking for a couple of months. Nope, you’ll get him a scarf instead.

You’ll certainly break the bank

The holiday season is a time of monetary and emotional stress. If you have a large family or tons of friends, you’re going to have to buy a ton of presents. Now it’s not the time to buy random things that might seem cool in the heat of the moment. Stick to a shopping list.

You might feel judged by the cashier

If your cashier is judging you because of your red eyes, they’re probably an idiot, but what if you think they’re judging you and they’re just trying to get through the day like the rest of us? You’ll never know. Being super high can really alter your perceptions of people.

It’ll take you hours to get your shopping done
