Long before it had become a pointless exercise, even before it had become a bad habit, there were times when the social use of Cannabis Sativa was an event, scheduled for a week-end evening perhaps, when a group of us innocents would partake of the herb.
The conversation certainly was not elevated, I seem to recall that "Oh Wow!" was the most memorable phrase. But the antics, oh the antics! There would be one event that would trigger it- a gesture, a posture, even a little dance perhaps? And then a response, going around the group, it would mutate and transform into a strange tableaux, each person becoming a mime, performing in a deranged play. Oh Wow!
It seemed like such a good idea at the time.
