We wanted to inspire you, so here are some stories from the DHC Team:


My first time was late at night back in high school, My friend and I went to 7-11 earlier in the day so we would have all the snacks ready. After a night of video games we snuck out of his back door and out into the woods to meet up with some other friends of ours. After finding our squad and fixing a pipe out of a water bottle and some tinfoil it was time to spark up. We smoked some and then played on a playground for what felt like forever but was actually probably closer to thirty minutes. Afterwards, we went back and snacked (Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my first munchies love) gamed (mostly Pokemon) and eventually passed out and fell asleep.


My first time smoking wasn’t glamorous. I was with a few friends in the “country” part of Maryland. We were in my mom’s old Dodge Caravan - complete with a VCR Player. OGs out here. I remember my friends were lighting up and I was a nervous wreck - what if we saw blue and red lights, what if one of our parents found out?! I took a few puffs and immediately got paranoid my mom would find out. I spent the whole drive home thinking I’d get pulled over and arrested. I didn’t smoke again until college. 😂

First time I smoked I decided it was a good idea to rip it on a rig and take one of the fattest dabs I’ve done in my life.
I coughed so bad I peed myself. 😆🤣

Oh man to go back that far! Picture it! Hereford TX. Summer 2002. A young farm girl babysitting her baby niece. Lookin for a onesie cause homegirl shitted up her diaper. I go into my brothers bedroom and open a drawer. I smell the faintness of a skunk and wonder why would they keep a stink bomb in their drawers. So I search to find the smell because I wana pop it and throw it in the school to ruin my least favorite teacher’s day! Open a small sock drawer and there it is…. a ziploc bag with some brick in it! I pick it up and smell and oddly I’m very attracted to the smell. So I proceeded to take a small piece and put it into a piece of paper and put it in my pocket. The next day I see my bestfriend at school n tell her what I have at home and she comes over with 2 of her cousins and she makes us a pipe with foil and a pencil and we smoke in my bedroom. I remember opening both of my windows and spraying the entire bottle of air freshener in my house cause my dad would’ve killed me if he walked in and smelled it! So 3 hours have passed and I’m passed out on my bed at 7pm my dad walks in my…. well more so barges! into my room and scared me awake and yells WHY ARE YOU ASLEEP RIGHT NOW! guys I literally shot up like my soul left my body and he laughs so hard! Thankfully I aired and sprayed my house enough that he never suspected a thing! I told him this story as an adult and he laughed so hard n said “you son of a gun! I had no idea!” And I gotta say that is one of my favorite memories to this day! My dad passed away last August so that memory means a lot to me😊

So my First Real time was a hell of a one! So I smoked many times before but I didn’t know how to inhale and thought I was defective and unable to get high (like my teenage years could have been so much more enjoyable). So sitting at a friend’s bar one night and they all smoke cigarettes and I was perplexed that they could talk without the smoke coming out of their mouths! So being a little tipsy I finally asked someone how they do that. Their first question before answering was “You smoke weed! What are you talking about, you don’t inhale?” Then I finally told them that everytime I smoked I never got high. So after some laughs they taught me the process using cigarettes since that was all we had. So then sitting at home alone the following day I decided to put my learnings to the test. I knew my parents smoked – I knew where everything was hidden. So I didn’t have any flower of my own so I went into my parents room grabbed a water pipe (had no clue there should be water in it) and packed up some of their stash in this pipe. Took my first and second hit sucessfully (coughed my brains out, throat on fire). Then it hit!! I was home alone except for my 2 dogs and cat. I suddenly decided to make this enormous salad with every topping possible but I felt like I was watching myself from above. Then as I devored this salad I was watching a movie (a movie I’ve probably seen about 30+ times prior to this) and just sat there in disbelief because I couldn’t figure out what the name of it was, what was going on, or what happened in the previous scenes. Then I proceeded to talk very loudly to my dogs yelling “Why is it so quite in here, and why are you all staring at me.” Then I texted my friend and told her “I think I smoked to much!” And she messaged me back and tokd me “relax you’re just high, enjoy it!”

My first time smoking was with my older sister. She had been smoking for years. She was 18 I was 12. We didn’t live together so day she came to pick me up from my step moms house. We rode around for a few minutes and she said “there’s a blunt in the console if u wanna light it up” and I wanted to be as cool as my sister so I lit the blunt (remember this is my first time) and I start dying coughing. She said “first time huh” and I was like “ummmm yes lol” and she told me it would kick in in a few seconds. Keep in mind we smoked this in her truck. Once we get back to her place I step out of the truck and my legs instantly go numb and I fall to the ground. Lmao my sister laughed so hard. I got up and dusted myself off and went into the living room where I proceeded to lay on the couch and fall asleep for 19 hours straight 😂😂😂

My first time smoking was alot different for me, I’ve always suffered from severe depression and anxiety since I was a little kid. About mid way through middle school my doctors decided to start me on a bunch of different meds to try and help. Nothing seemed to work and alot of time they made things worse. Well my older brother was a stoner an thought it would help me more than what the doctors where prescribing me. I was so nervous to smoke and didnt know how it would be, or if it would help. So one day after school my brother rolled me up a joint and told me to try it. I sat in my room turned on some music so if I started coughing no one would hear me lol, and smoked hanging put my bedroom window. Best thing I could of ever done! Told my doctors about how smoking helped me more than anything they had given me and has been smoking since. It literally changed my life, honestly it saved my life.

Okay so here we go it was 2008 and I was in the 10th grade and was hanging out with my best friends at the time. For some reason we were making a movie about gangsters and I just so happen to be the drug dealer. I was told I was smoking a fake j and at the time I’m like hell I look cool so why not continued to smoke it and realized I done messed up I got super paranoid and had to lay down everyone thought it was the greatest thing In the world bc I was so against smoking and now they got me too. I was so mad but I couldn’t do anything about it seeing as in I thought I was gonna die. After about an hour everyone all smoked and we were off to our high school basketball game. On the drive there we were stuck at a red light that seemed to take forever and all I remember is the kid in the front seat just opening the door and hanging out of the car to yell at the light for it to change already I will never forget that night. My best friend of high school isn’t here anymore but the nostalgia of bud makes me smile and remember the first time he got me high and how much I miss him so much ♥️

The first time I smoked I was alone. Mainly because I wanted to practice before I was in front of anyone else. I came from a long line of stoners and felt I had an image to uphold. My dad smokes like a chimney. Always has. One summer, just before my junior year of high school, my dad left me at the house alone to run some errands. He usually smoked blunts but for whatever reason he rolled a joint this day. A blunt seemed like a bit much but a joint I thought I could handle. He’d offered to let me smoke before but I always told him no. Back then the D.A.R.E. program was still listing weed as gateway drug to heroine, I was scared, but still curious. I stood in the bathroom mirror with the joint roach between my thumb and pointer finger and a lighter in the other. It was so small I didn’t even know how to light it. There was this picture of Bob Marley I had seen though of him smoking a joint in front of the camera so I wanted to figure it out just so I could try and recreate the same instance. I began to flick the plastic dollar store lighter I’d found and pressed the flame to the tip of the joint once I got it going. It started to smoke so much I started freaking out and hadn’t even hit the joint yet. I couldn’t put it out without trying though, I’d come too far, so as quick as I could I pressed it to my lips and sucked as hard as I could. I mean my dad sounded like a shop vac hose when he smoked. Figured that’s what I had to do. I was wrong. The joint shot into my mouth. Still lit! I coughed, I gagged, I spit it out. Threw up and everything. My dad came home to me on the couch looking like death and asked what’s wrong. Told him I just wasn’t feeling well. He smirked and asked did I need some ginger ale. He had to have known what happened. Whole house smelled like puke and ashtray. I never tried smoking again until college after that. And we’ve been best friends ever since.

Cynthia Alvarez 09/15/2020

My first time is a classic cliche but still a funny story. It was my freshmen year of college, my friend and I were walking around campus late at night, and after explaining about my insomnia, he pulled out a blunt. Half hour later, were in 7/11, buying me snacks which included some Ben & Jerry’s chunky monkey ice cream, nutter butter, iced coffee, and chunky peanut butter. I didn’t share and we went back to our spot to smoke another blunt. I’ve never stopped smoking since and still helps me study!!

Nate Cousins 09/15/2020

I’m pretty sure the first time I ever smoked, I was smoking oregano. A friend in high school said he had some good stuff and asked if my other friends and I would want to try it out. I didn’t really know what I was doing but I was up for it. At lunch we could leave the campus and get food, but instead we all went to a small shed near the school that nobody used. Somebody made a little bong out of a water bottle, a hollow pen, and some tin foil. We all passed it around and by the time we were done, it was time to go back to school. But before going back, we went to one of my friend’s house to get some snacks. While we were walking, I thought I felt different though I wasn’t sure what I was “supposed” to be feeling. That friend’s brother was home and he was quite an experienced smoker. Wanting to be “cool kids” we showed him what we smoked and he just started laughing. He told us we weren’t even smoking anything and made fun of us. At first I didn’t believe him but I couldn’t deny it because the first time I ACTUALLY got high was definitely real ;) Turns out it really was oregano…

my first time smoking ever was with my sister.
I grew up in a family of smokers. My dad is Jamaican and my parents has always taught us that it was medicine.
My siblings started smoking in their teens, and it was presumed I would too.
In high school, my friends smoked. They even smoked with my mom, but I didn’t smoke. Yet.
When I was about 15/16, I was helping my sister pack to move. We had just finished and before she packed up her bong, she was taking her last snaps in her old apartment.
My sister had a beautiful big blue bong, it was a little over 2ft tall with ocean swirls of blue and a big bowl base.
I was in awe watching her smoke.
In that moment, I decided I wanted to smoke for my first time.
I told my sister and she was like a kid that just walked into a candy store.
Her eyes lit up, and she said mater of fact. If you’re gonna smoke for your first time, it has to be with family. She started packing me a bowl and there was no turning back.
She lit the bowl for me and pulled the stem.
I hacked up my right lung, I thought I had a cloud in my throat, my eyes instantly glossed over like glazed dougnuts and I could not stop giggling.
My sister cracked up laughing hysterically at my first hit/cough fit.
We then decided we had to tell my mom, so we called her and I couldn’t even compose myself to talk. I was just giggling in the background as my sister explained how it all came about to my mom. Who was laughing like a hyena at my first hit.
No we are a family that smokes together and all our holidays are like a Canna event.

My first I was @ church believe it or not, 😂 it was a Wednesday youth group and some of my friends asked if we wanted to skip that day. We walked out to a big field with no one around. This cute boy named Austin pulled out a little mini pipe and loaded it up. I was nervous at first i didn’t want to cough too hard and look like a baby 😂! But that was 5 years ago and no I’m coughing like nobody’s business haha

Chris 09/15/2020

“This one time at band camp,…” my step sister and her boyfriend were going to smoke during lunch, and thought I would be fun to bring along. So we all went into the woods, ate really quick, and smoked out a foil pipe someone had. After lunch we went back in to find out we were putting on a full performance in the auditorium. It was awesome to jam out during my first high.

Dominick Tresatti 09/15/2020

So let me set the mood for ya I’m a 9th grader at my buddies house with 2 other friends on a sat night just got home from a party where I was drinking heavy. Now my friends older brother was the coolest kid in the entire high school. Big muscled Indian kid who they called “shekki.” So its me and his brother and 2 other buddies who one I know has also never smoked were all sitting around about to pass the f#uc× out when Boom door flies open and its Shekki and he walks in pulls out a fatty and was like who’s smoking with me! With that entrance who can say no so me being me was like fire 🔥 it up thinking it was just weed well here it was hydro with cocaine sprinkled in the blunt. So I’m halfway through this log when things start going from really really slow like I was in slow motion to being in the matrix and things flying. So a few mins go by and I finally build up enough courage to speak and blurted out “can I drink” and pointed at the container of coolaid so I proceed to walk towards this container and lift it up to take a drink and eyeball how far down the liquid was so I could see how far to tilt it up so I began to put the container of atleast a half gallon of koolaid to my lips and tilt it upwards suddenly im in slow motion and i tilt this container to far up and dumped the entire jug all over me like from my mouth down through my butt crack and down into my shoes. Which is where my night turned for the worse and I began to speed up and start hyperventilating in the shower because of the steam being enclosed and thought I was gonna die so I never got a shower so fast I was in and out in 5 mins and that was from beginning to end and being completly dressed and dryish. My buddies from that day on used to be like “Hey Kool-Aid” lmao so all and all it was a fun and crazy night 🌙.

So i was 17, just went through the biggest heart break with my high school “sweetheart” I had decided to try weed for the first time in March 2012, so naturally i went to my two best friends. They decided to take me to a local park we had all grown up going to right on the river. They came equipped with the perfectly planned cover for my parents, that we were going to a late movie. As we approached the park, i noticed three things: 1)we were right behind my childhood elementary school, 2) they were leading me to the dock that was right below my nana’s condo, and 3) my post break-up crush was sitting on the railing waiting for us. As my heartbeat doubled in beats, trying to break out of my ribcage, my friends got going on packing my first bowl. I remember the crushing anxiety. As i sat surrounded by my friends, i kept thinking,“what if nana hears and tells my parents” or “what if i make an ass of myself in front of him!” Once the bowl was ready, my crush got down on one knee in front of me holding a long wooden pipe in his hand and a lime green bic in the other. My friends asked if i was ready and i nodded eagerly. My crush held the pipe up to my lips and said,“it would be an honor to light your first bowl!” In that moment i never felt more like a princess (lol). Then with a strike of the bic i took my first inhale and all anxiety left my chest with my first exhale. I no longer worried about what my crush thought of me or embarrassing myself. I was too preoccupied with the odd feelings of my first high and the urge to go to the swing set. But later in life i realized a rather awesome fact about that night. My crush had introduced me to my life long love: mary jane!

ashley 09/15/2020

Sophomore year of high school. Parents out of town- house to myself! Brought my friend over- she had the WORST weed (not that I would have known what good weed was at the time, It was almost the color of dirt ). I had NO idea what to put it in to smoke it- never done this before! Ended up rolling it up in a PIECE OF WHITE LINED PAPER omg. She claimed to be SOO ripped while we were watching Dazed and Confused and kept repeatedly saying “Im so high” and I honestly I had no idea If I was, I didnt feel any different and was a little irritated honestly. Karma was on the kid who sold us that bunk weed I later found out he got arrested and his engine blew up LOL

Brooklynn 09/15/2020

My first time smoking was out of a soda can the ole fashioned way haha. I remember seeing everything and just thinking “Damn am i in a wide screen film?”. It was like my perepheral vision went on forever. i laughed all night long. Finally Passed out after some eye drops and a red bull.

Brian Ortiz 09/15/2020

The first time I ever smoked was when I hung out with my friends for a while and they got use to me so they invited me to a smoke sesh and I thought we were only doing blunts and joints cause I didn’t smoke and all I see is my friend pull out a smoke shop Rasta bong and he said if I wanted to take a hit and all I could think was all the weedtubers I watched who smoked bongs now is my chance to smoke like them and all I remember was I took a massive hit held it in a bit then exhaled and seemed good but then started dying seconds after 😂😂 best time ever

Tyrone brandt 09/15/2020

First time I smoked weed was out of a lung (two litre bottle with bag attached to it). It hit me so strong that within 2 min, I went blind! Eyes wide open but I couldn’t see! My friends had to get me to sit down and i regained vision in like another minute or two haha what an experience!! Was talking all slow, everything was blurry, was a good good high, but when I went home my mom saw how red my eyes were.. Well I got grounded from going outside the rest of the summer! I was like 13 or 14? On my way home I rode my bike, first thing I almost hit a post! 😂

Viviana Navaez Garcia 09/15/2020

My first time was the worst. I was with my friends and they say “Hey try this, you would like it, we called it sweet chocolate” and I was like eeem ok lets do this. So we went to the park and we roll and my friend packed the hole bag of pot in that joint. I was a little afraid because I did not know how I was going to react. We smoked and then five minutes later I almost feel like I was going to die. I was very dizzy and I get paranoid but then I started laughing of my own self and right there the munchies hit me. I was like what the f is going on right now, what its happening to me, why I have so many emotions, why I am so HUNGRYYYYYYY. Then I realize I was high like hell and enjoying that little minute of piece and when it was almost over I smoked again so I can keep on my moment of peace. Now I smoke every day in bongs and pipes, I really enjoy it.

Rayann Roberts 09/15/2020

My first time smoking was with my best friend at her house with our 2 closest friends. We were all hanging out in her bedroom at the time I didn’t know how cool her mom was with us smoking so I was freaking out inside thinking her mom was going to smell it then come in and whoop all of us 😂 well we started passing the bong out and the next thing I know her mom is coming in sitting down on the bed smoking with us. We were freshmen in high school! And her mom just didn’t care. She gave us weed, let us use her pipes, and let us use any of her bongs whenever we wanted to. One of the best memories I have with them!

Jennifer Jeffries 09/15/2020

The first time I smoked was with my best friend ,my dad gave us smoke and we weren’t exactly sure what we were doing but we figured it out. We had the best night ever. We laughed n laughed, and got the munchies, our other friend puked n went to bed, lol, she couldn’t handle it yet I guess. We were 13. I must say since that first time I fell in Love. I smoke from the time I wake up with my coffee, all day till bed. I still get everything I need to get done. I’m also on medical marijuana, and it has helped. Unfortunately way too expensive. So I stick with smoking n getting the old fashion way. It has helped with nausea, pain, anxiety, PTSD, and mood swings.As it has helped so many others. Everyday all day is 4:20 to me.🙂👌💯 If everyone smoked what a happy world it could be. Put these pharmaceutical companies out of business. smoke on brothers n sisters, Happy smoke day ,Everyday, ✌

Ethan Myers 09/15/2020

The first time I ever experienced weed was when I was 13, my cousin whom was 17 at the time was going to a house party and all my family was at the house this was the week of Christmas, I get in the car with him not knowing where or what we’re doing he tells my family we are going to a friends birthday or something to that degree and he looks to me saying “you know what we’re doing right” then it was all wild from there, first a store stop, then we walk into this crowded house music, booze, smoke In the air such a mindfuck to me at the time, so I start to drink get a little wild, was then offered a pipe hit from one of his friends, my cousin says “you don’t have to do this” but so many beautiful people partaking and I just ripped it so hard, then I fell in love at that moment.

Dalton 03/12/2019

I was 17, second semester of my senior year of high school. I had been helping a friend work on his car but we had got done a lot earlier than we thought we would. So we was trying to find something to do for the rest of the day. My friend turned to me and said “Do you want to smoke?” I had talked about wanting to try it a lot so enthusiastically I said, “hell yes!” So we talked about how to get away with and decided to go fishing to explain where we’d been and it wouldn’t be anythig we had to focus on. So we got all of our fishing equipment loaded up and some snacks and drinks for the munchies and headed to the lake. We got there and immediately fired up a joint. We smoked it first, and we barely got wood for our fire or our fishing poles out afterward lol. We sat on the tailgate all night laughing at nothing and eating funyuns. It was still one of the greatest nights of my life!

Jewels Chavira 09/15/2020

So back in my freshman year of high school I had a real bad ditching problem and on one of my ditching adventures I took my first puff of Mary Jane. A friend of mine and I ditched and met another friend of ours at her moms apparent complex. We met her in the laundry room where we locked ourselves in. I remember she pulled out an apple and I was so confused at first until she used some handy dandy stoner skills to make a pipe out of it. I remember coughing at first but None the less we smoked ourselves out until some guy banged on the door which completely freaked me out. We waited for him to leave, then grabbed our stuff and dipped. Last thing we did was walk to 7/11 where the munchies took over.

Megan 09/15/2020

The first time that I sparked my lighter and filled my lungs with amazing cannabis was when I was 16 years old. I had been suffering from my stomach condition for over a year at this point and my doctors had no options for any sort of relief. I was living off of Gatorade and a few saltine crackers a day. The doctors told me if I didn’t find a way to keep food down I would be hospitalized being fed through a tube in my stomach, and they didn’t even know if that would help. So like any mom would, my mom went searching for an answer, any answer!! Thankfully it didn’t take her long to come across the number one recommended thing for my condition, medical cannabis! We immediately found a way to acquire some and I smoked it. This was the first night in over a year that I was able to eat and keep down a solid nutritional mea!! It was amazing, and we later found out it helps me with my other medical issues. All in all, cannabis saved my life!!
