Going away to College or University is a formative time for nearly everyone. You have new experiences, meet new people, and it’s the time to experiment. I can tell you first hand that smoking weed doesn’t make you any less capable of doing great in college, but there are some things you should keep in mind.There can be real consequences to your actions, so be sure to…

Keep it on the Down Low

One of the biggest things that you need to remember when you go away to College is that there is security above and beyond just law enforcement that can turn a pleasant night of toking into a bad time. If you are caught, college security and administration can take actions above what the police may do, that can effect your academic career. While the police may turn the other way for a single joint, strict colleges may expel you for drug use. Be careful whenever you’re partaking on campus grounds until you know the lay of the land, and always remember that annoying your neighbours or peers is how you get ratted out! Be respectful and discreet, don’t try hot-boxing your bathroom or smoking a tiny joint in your room because you’re feeling lucky that day. It smells, trust me. As long as you’re careful and considerate, and take this advice to heart, you should be able to get high in peace.

Whether you’re going after a table-top vape, vape-pen or similar, there is something that suits everyone’s lifestyle. Pens are perfect for portability and discretion, and table-tops are sturdy and dependable. Both are much healthier and pure than straight-up smoking cannabis. Remember to be mindful of your use and your health because investing in yourself is much more than getting a quality education.

What to do if you don’t have the money for a vaporizer, or it’s off the table for some other reason? Using a powerful fan to direct smells out of your room is a perfectly viable option. Be resourceful and take advantage of products that companies have helpfully developed, like sploofs, or make your own. Don’t put a bag over your smoke detector as this qualifies as a felony and can be worse than the drug charges in some places. If you aren’t confident that you can smoke in your room without stinking up the block, no fear. College is a great place to…
