Secondhand smoke?[edit]

I thought that a contact buzz/high referred to a secondhand smoke sort of thing-- say if you were smoking in a room, and someone got high being in the room but not smoking. 131.123.89.122 21:32, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

^That's also what I thought. The whole concept of a contact high is complete bullshit.

My friends and I took a bowl a plastic bag and an argument. We then hit the bowl blew into the bag and exhaled, and another non-smoking individual inhaled the contents. After four hits the non-smoking individual felt nothing; adding this is discusting I see no reason to continue this experiment. We waited a few and nothing. This is just one experiment, although it does discredit my opinion of the contact high.

If you actually read the sourced material in the article, you will find that that is not what this is anyway. ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 05:53, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
The source is a dictionary that is over 40 years old. The original definition has become archaic...every stoner I know uses the more modern definition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.33.12.151 (talk) 16:08, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Marvelously misguided! Needs complete overhaul![edit]

Contact high has its history in the 60's and the use of the only drug that can actually cause a contact high due to the very low treshold dose required for a person to experience the effects - Lysergic acid diethylamide. The treshold dose is thought to be about 25 micrograms.

No other substance can have effect on a person from touch alone. So yes, the concept of contact high from Cannabis or THC is absurdly misguided. Casimirpo (talk) 20:26, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

No way. Contact high is what you get when your hanging around people who are baked without being baked yourself. You just feel baked from their stonedness.Rainyhemptree (talk) 08:27, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
