my little group of friends have for about 6 months now been following the teachings of this rhyme after one of the group introduced it. "Weed before beer you're in the clear, beer before grass you're on your ass" I am interested to know if any yous have heard it before? Also is it true? I have not been drunk before smoking in ages but often drinks while he smokes. Does "on your ass" mean that Drunk and stoned is twice as messed up in an interesting drug way- I know this to be true. Or that in the wrong order (by the teaching of the rhyme) throwing up is alot more likely? Is it because of the immediate effects of the two such as taste? Or there effects? if so being drunk takes longer after ingesting beer than being stoned through smoking. In addition is it just beer and an interaction between hops based things or any alcohol? Is it just saying don't drink or eat bitter things while high and giving a likely example? in this case a sweet cider would be OK. Or is it just a big load of hairy bollocks? Believe it or not all of these questions arose while I was high. SWIM as no idea whether his friend heard it somewhere or created it himself. any views?
