Some people will say there isn’t a right or wrong way to smoke a joint.
I would disagree with them, and insist that there is a correct way to smoke a joint, or maybe a more correct way to inhale your medicine, so you get greater satisfaction from your joint.
For many year I disliked smoking joints – I preferred using a pipe. Joints just didn’t seem to work for me until I saw the film this clip comes from – the 1971 film Taking Off by Milos Forman.
One day I tried smoking along with the people in the movie, following the advice of Vincent Schiavelli, and it was the best joint I had ever smoked.
So now I offer, for your entertainment and education – The Schiavelli Method of Joint Smoking:
Points to Remember
- Take in a lot of oxygen with your hit by turning up the corners of your mouth.
- Hold your hit in for a count of ten, exhaling (preferably) through your nose.
- Pass the joint to the person sitting next to you (if you are medicating with others.)
- Do not, I repeat – DO NOT Bogart the joint.
Have a great weekend!
