Weed isn't trippy and you shouldn't have hallucinations from it. However you can have a bad experience from it which can include nausea, panic attacks, anxiety and paranoia. However it seems that these bad effects are very much in the minority of cases.

But: Don't try drugs that you haven't read up on. Seriously, it's stupid. If you don't even know what the possible side-effects of marijuana (or any drug for that matter) is then you shouldn't consider trying it. There is no excuse as information is easy to find. For a webpage that answers your question in more detail please look at: http://www.erowid.org/plants/cannabi..._effects.shtml

I've read up, and there has been so many things that contridict therself. Look at the topic below this about long term affect, so much arguments there. I know what can happen, but i came here to hear from someone that i can trust more then someone thats against pot. And it can try little hallucinations. My friend said he smokes and some times things are moving but they are slower, i know everyone has different things when they smoke. But that's why i'm staying inside. I don't trust myself out in the wide open stoned. Although once i know what happens i will since it's not illegal to be stoned in public if there's no weed on you. I'm in grade 8 and my friend comes in stoned, the teacher can't do anything but tell his parents, but they know. And i'm not going to school stoned anyway, that's just retarded lol.

no real hallucinations

the only thing i can think of related is sometimes you get this like, frame-by-frame view and your hands and arms can look like they're moving even when they aren't. It's hard to explain but i guess it's kind of like those strobe lights at raves (which flash really fast) and every movement is like jumpy/robotic.

As for you tripping and out and dying i've never experienced anything weird or heard anything like this happening, but like Jack said it can have some bad effects in a small amount of people.

most ppl dont get high the first time cuz they dont know what there doing, id suggest doing it with the biggest stoner u know and if possible use a bong. and just do what they tell u, that way it wont be a waste

you are 13... you need to find more interesting things to do with your time, really. Pot isnt at all exciting anyway.

And the link Jack gave is one of the most reliable drug info sites on the internet I believe.

Never tried it and I don't intend to so I don't know.

I was actually going to tell you not to try it.
And I'm not going to go away
But drugs are may be 'fun' when you're high.. but they're most definitely not good for you.
I suppose at the end of the day I couldn't stop you from doing them..
But I can advise you against it.

I agree with Tegan, it's not a good idea to smoke it when you're only 13. I smoked it for the first time a few weeks ago (actually quite a lot) and it done very little to me, all that happened was that I felt sleepy.

13 years old isn't good to start at, you'll most likely try other drugs if you start that early, but thats all i'll say about that.
One thing, your mind races when you smoke weed so if you have anxiety or just are a paranoid person you could have an anxiety attack while on it, that really sucks.

I agree. The first time was paranoia and ridiculously scary for me.

My first time, we sparked up in a park. We had six joints each, packed to the rafters from the best stash I've ever seen this side of my city. Two of my friends greened out and started vomitting - we were drinking at the same time, so maybe that's why. I lay down in the front of this guys house and then he pulled up in his SUV and started slagging me off his garden. Went to hide in a ditch and I was so paranoid that cars could see us that we actually ran home. We did watch Spongebob after that, and couldn't stop laughing - it was absolutely hilarious.

You should be fine, being inside and all.

Even now, when I smoke weed, my legs and arms twitch like crazy and I can't keep still. I absolutely hate it, but sometimes I feel the need to smoke just to calm down and keep everything simple.

When you're stoned, most things you don't think about. You might not want to stand up or move or anything, which is normal. You'll probably fall asleep quickly, and walking down hallways that're quite short feel like they take forever. It's funny, really, but not in anyway more exciting than getting drunk.

Just so you know, I don't endorse it at 13, but I suppose you've gotta try it. It's a soft drug, and isn't any more damaging than smoking a cigarette.

Grass before beer, you're in the clear. Beer before grass, you're on your ass. Swear by it.


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

One of the most important things to do when you're trying a drug for the first time is make sure you're in a place where you're comfortable. Make sure it's somewhere familiar where ytou won't get lost and freak out and there's no danger of getting caught by the guards.
I wouldn't have as much as six spliffs your first time...that's a hell of a lot...I don't think I've EVER had that much to myself. Sometimes when people have too much they can get the greens ~ which is NOT nice (never had them myself although I've felt a little sick, but I've heard from other people..) ~ if you feel you've had too much stop, even just for a while. Take it easy so you stay in control.
it's not THAT common to hallucinate from weed...once or twice when I've had a lot my mind kept making pictures out of the clouds and the shapes in the trees but that's the closest I've ever come :P
Just be wise about it and you should be safe.

weed really isn't that exciting.. but eh, it's very unlikely you'll have any kinda bad reaction to it.. but do read up on it just so you know what you're getting into. if it's your first time then don't smoke too much of it to start with and i wouldn't recommend drinking beforehand.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

I wouldn't encourage a 13 to try a drug like this.
But then again you said not to tell you not to.
in that case, just read up.
make sure you know what your getting yourself into.

Meh, my first was at 13 as well. My first time I remember being really relaxed for few minutes and then falling asleep for hours. lol, just make sure you don't take too much like I did.
